Stop me if you've heard this one before...

''Becoming Human'' is a [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] SupernaturalSoapOpera created by Toby Whithouse. The protagonists are a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire, a [[{{Wolfman}} wolfgirl]], and a timid ghost who is uncertain about the circumstances of his death. Wait, that sounds suspiciously like the premise of [[Series/BeingHuman another show]]...

Good, because it should. ''Becoming Human'' is -- to describe it in a sentence -- the HighSchoolAU of ''Series/BeingHuman''. It's handled by the same creative team, and began airing [[{{Webisode}} online]] on 30 January 2011, immediately following the ''Series/BeingHuman'' episode that introduced us to our new vampire.

So far, ''Becoming Human'' is playing out like an online interactive game, with various clues to be found in different posts made on the blog.

Can be found [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/becominghuman/ here]].

!!Tropes in ''Becoming Human''
* AbhorrentAdmirer: [[GenderFlip Gender flipped]] for Matt's perving on the girls in the locker room. Possibly taken further when it's revealed he has had a crush on Christa for three years.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Matt to Christa.
* AlmightyJanitor: TheStinger reveals the caretaker is perfectly aware of the supernatural goings-on in the school.
* AlphaBitch: Brandy Mulligan/Crompton.
* TheAtoner: Adam.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Adam sees this between himself and Christa. Could be joking, but going by his personality, he's probably perfectly serious.
* UsefulNotes/BritishEducationSystem: The setting ''is'' a school.
* TheBully: Danny Curtis to Matt when he was living.
* CompulsorySchoolAge: Played with. Adam looks 16, so by British law can be out of school. However, he chooses to go back and, for once, take it seriously and gain some qualifications.
* DeadpanSnarker: Both Adam and Christa have varying levels.
* DirtyOldMan: Adam. Christa lampshades this in the ARG that half the things he says to the girls, if he looked his chronological age, would get him arrested.
* DiscoDan: Adam, in some of the references he makes. [[spoiler: Well, he is 46. He would have been turned around 1981]].
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: It turns out the killer is Mr. Roe, the mild-mannered, helpful teacher who was the only character to never be a suspect. A second more minor example is the janitor, who spent a lot of time in the background before being believed to be an accomplice, but eventually turned out to be a RedHerring... or was he?
* DownerEnding: For Christa. [[AllThereInTheManual The manual]] reveals that at some point shortly after the show's end she accidentally killed two young men while she was transformed, ran away from home, and was last seen somewhere in Scotland. Most of her relatives and friends think she's dead. And apparently now that her werewolf form's tasted blood it's far more dangerous.
* {{Emo}}: Christa is ''not'' one, according to Adam.
* ElaborateUniversityHigh: The high school does seem very polished...
* EveryoneIsASuspect: Pretty much every character could plausibly be the murderer, bar Adam, who hadn't joined the school yet. As such, pretty much every character is investigated at some point.
* {{Expy}}: Adam does seem to come across a bit like Mitchell in series 1. Not that this is a bad thing.
* FairPlayWhodunnit
* FakeOutMakeOut: Adam and Christa are forced to resort to this.
* FakeVideoCameraView: Some of the uploads on the site are videos taken by the characters from a mobile phone.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Again, Adam. He's actually doing fairly well, all things considered.
** Which leads to FridgeHorror when you consider that no vampire in the the ''Series/BeingHuman'' universe has ever successfully managed to abstain from blood.
*** The worst part about blood withdrawal is the vampire begins to remember and feel guilt for the people they killed. Adam has never killed anyone.
* GhostlyGoals: [[spoiler: Matt wants revenge for his murder.]]
* {{Goth}}: Christa. Her inner monologue implies it's a fairly recent change.
* HauntedHeadquarters
* HighSchoolAU: Could essentially be described as this for ''Being Human''.
* LegalJailbait: Adam is said to be stuck in a 16 year old body, but is chronologically 46, and the actor is 20.
** Not that it matters, since 16 is the age of consent in the UK.
* LighterAndSofter: Arguable. It certainly isn't as dark as ''Series/BeingHuman'' can get.
* [[spoiler: LoveTriangle: Matt fancies Christa. Adam ''possibly'' fancies her too.]]
* {{Masquerade}}
* MonsterMash
* NewTransferStudent: Adam is essentially this.
* OnceMoreWithClarity: The final episode features a brief montage of the clues that allow the characters to finally figure out who the murderer is -- all of which were seemingly inconsequential at the time.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Adam and Christa are ''trying'' to be this.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent
* ParanormalInvestigation: Does it count if it is the paranormal doing the investigating themselves?
* ShoutOut: To X-Men in the first webisode.
* SupernaturalSoapOpera
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Matt loves eggs. He even calls himself an "[[Music/TheBeatles egg man]]" at one point.
* TrueCompanions: By the end.
* [[VampireDetectiveSeries Vampire and Werewolf and Ghost Detective Series]]
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman
* WhodunnitToMe: What Matt is trying to find out.
* YouCanSeeMe: Matt is surprised to find out he can be seen by Adam and Christa.
