Jared Harris stands out again in ‘The Beast Must Die’

“The Beast Must Die” premiered on AMC+ on July 5, but most people I know will only be able to watch it on regular old AMC, where it premiered on Monday night at 10. It’s not the next great British thriller, but it’s a good British thriller, one that’s worth checking out. The twists are entertaining, and the three lead performances by Cush Jumbo, Billy Howle, and Jared Harris are phenomenal.

‘The Beast Must Die’ Review: Cush Jumbo and Jared Harris Create Perfect Dueling Partners

With the pandemic causing a slowdown in production, there’s an opportunity for already-shot shows from across the pond to fill the gap. Adapted from the novel by Cecil Day-Lewis, “The Beast Must Die” is an intense and reflective tale of grief, vengeance, and privilege that’s as impossible to stop watching as I’m sure the book itself is to read. Anchored by Cush Jumbo and Jared Harris’ indomitable performances, the addictive import could even fill the void left by other crime dramas like “Mare of Easttown.”

Monday, July 12: Cush Jumbo and Jared Harris Lead Revenge Thriller ‘The Beast Must Die’

All Times Eastern. PBS programming varies regionally. This six-part revenge thriller is based on Nicholas Blake’s novel and is shot on the stunning Isle of Wight. After learning the police investigation into the fatal hit-and-run of her young son has been dropped, Frances Cairnes (Cush Jumbo) takes matters into her own hands. Posing as a novelist researching a new murder mystery, Frances ingratiates herself with the family of George Rattery (Jared Harris), the man she suspects is responsible, and sets a plan in action to kill him. She’s tracked by Detective Inspector Nigel Strangeways (Billy Howle), who has reason to believe his department covered up George’s involvement in the incident. Strangeways works to both prove George’s guilt and head off Frances’ plans for revenge before anyone else dies.

Jared Harris: ‘I watched some of my father’s pitfalls, and would try to avoid them’

Film studios no longer try to make stories that will entertain people above the age of 24,” says Jared Harris, who, at 59, hasn’t been that age since Back to the Future came out. “And because they ignored this market, there was a vacuum, and TV and streaming platforms have all stepped into it. They’re telling stories to people who have lived lives. They’re more challenging stories and they take bigger risks.”And they usually star Jared Harris. It’s hard to think of an actor with a more impressive roster of TV shows than Harris. You could call him a late...
