STOP PRESS: Bothe series are now (Feb 2014) available on DVD in the UK
I can only concur with the previous reviews about Beast. It's something approaching a crime that the Beeb have not put this out on DVD -especially considering some of the dross that they HAVE put out! I have to demur from the adoration of Simon Nye's earlier "Men Behaving Badly" series -which I thought was only sometimes as funny as it thought it was. I also object to MBB on the grounds that it spearheaded the "Men are stupid, woman are clever" stereotype that was so prevalent in comedy and advertising around the millennium. I can only imagine the storm of protest that would have ensued if that stereotyping had been the other way around...
Anyway, no such problem with Beast, everyone in it is, happily - a lackwit!
