This new series draws likeness with shows like The Fall and Broadchurch as well as the film We Need to Talk about Kevin. Part coming-of-age drama, part psychological thriller, Born to Kill follows a teenage boy traumatised by his father’s absence and wrestling with murderous thoughts. As his family and community watch on unwittingly, putting his symptoms down to puberty, schoolboy Sam is beginning to fall in love while at the same time struggling to repress psychopathic desires. The four-part drama stars Romola Garai (The Hour), Daniel Mays (Line of Duty), Jack Rowan, Lara Peake, Elizabeth Counsell, and Richard Coyle (Grabbers). In this first episode, Sam meets new girl Chrissy.
