A forgotten gem
31 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought the two series of "beast" were very funny indeed, i think that Simon Nye's writing had got back on track with this programme after a couple of relative lack lustre efforts in his other ventures.

The acting from the cast is polished and professional, the story lines are very well thought out, and the characters quirky but likable, and performances from Alexander Armstrong show why he has gone on to be such a asset to comedy roles on TV.

Good supporting performances from everyone else too, i rather thought there was a third series in there somewhere, shame Simon Nye didn't come up with a third,

This programme is crying out for a DVD release, lets hope the BBC considers this, as it seems they have a wealth of material in their archives gathering dust.
