Take a look at the trailer for the new BBC drama based on The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.

We love the way the seemingly idyllic English village of Pagford comes to life in this sneak peek. The cast includes Michael Gambon (Harry Potter), Julia McKenzie (Shirley Valentine) and Keeley Hawes (Upstairs Downstairs).

The Casual Vacancy has been described as a ‘big novel about a small town’. The town of Pagford is left in shock after Barry Fairbrother, a much liked and valuable member of the Parish Council and local community dies suddenly in his early forties, leaving behind a wife and four children. His death sets in motion a jostle for power as members of the local community put their names forward for the seat on Parish Council, vacated by Barry Fairbrother.
