Forget your Team Edward vs. Team Jacob, we all know why vampires and werewolves are cool, respectively. Moody romantics. Animal Magnetism. Blah. Blah. Blah.

But what makes one supernatural entity more tragic — more deserving of our pity — than the other?

We asked "Being Human" flatmates Aidan Turner (the vampire) and Russell Tovey (the werewolf) to give us their tales of woe.

For Turner it all comes down to the curse of immortality. From Tovey's point-of-view, vampires are dead no matter how you slice it while werewolves have to die over and over again each month.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
