Tv Season Info
"The Beast Must Die" is a must-watch for the amazing performances from Cush Jumbo and Jared Harris.
There are times when the filmmaking here underlines the mental states of its character a little too boldly, but the acting carries the project as the trio carve out fascinating, memorable people.
Many of us are lying in wait for the next great British TV mystery... The Beast Must Die will do the trick, I think, while it's not at the level of the best of the genre.
We're recommending The Beast Must Die mainly because of the performances of Jumbo and Howle, and the delicious potential of Jumbo and Harris' scenes together.
It's not a terrible way to spend six hours, and Harris is sufficiently detestable, but it's so relentlessly morose that it's difficult to connect with the characters.
