Russell Tovey has said that science fiction fans are "incredible".

The Being Human star told Metro that he did not realise how much the fans would be moved by the work he does.

Tovey said: "Sci-fi fans are the best fans you can have. You could be doing the worst piece of tat which might have a robot or vampire in and some people will become obsessed by it and know every little detail.

"Being Human has crossed over from sci-fi fans to being a drama that everyone can enjoy."

Asked about fan conventions, he added: "I did Comic-Con in the US which is the big one where everyone goes crazy and we've done signings across Britain.

"The fans are amazing. They really appreciate what we do. You make the shows and don't realise how much they can move and affect people."

Tovey has previously quipped that his personal fanbase is made up of "middle-aged, balding gay men".

Of the impenetrability of some cult shows after their first series, he said: "You want to stick with the series; the characters have their own story arcs, but you can also dip in and watch individual episodes. There's a new guest character in most episodes, which keeps it fresh."

Tovey recently filmed a guest role as Henry Knight in the second series of the BBC's Sherlock.
