THE LITTLE STRANGER is a British mystery drama, set in the 1940s, in which a country doctor is called to treat a patient at a crumbling estate.

Threat

There are scenes of moderate threat in which people are frightened by banging doors and other strange sounds, possibly resulting from supernatural activity.

Injury detail

We see blood over a distressed child's face and clothing after an off-screen dog attack. There are further bloody images in the aftermath of a possible suicide and of another incident in which a character falls from a staircase. In another scene we see electrotherapy being applied to a man's heavily scarred leg.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'bloody' and 'damn'.

A man slides his hand up a woman's inner thigh during a romantic encounter. There is a brief verbal reference to a man beating his young daughter in order to terminate her pregnancy. A dog is euthanised.
