SATURDAY 5 MAY 7.30PM Channel 009

When Parish Councilman Barry Fairbrother unexpectedly dies, the town of Pagford is left in shock. An English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, Pagford is not what it first seems. What lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war – rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest battle the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

“...A heart-breaking, thought-provoking... look at the tyrannical power of the picturesque.” – Los Angeles Times

“The Causal Vacancy beautifully weaves together story lines about vivid characters of all social classes and of all ages with funny, and shocking vignettes about the hang-ups and bossiness of the main players and their children.” – Philadelphia Enquirer

Starring Michael Gambon (Fortitude), Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful), Emily Bevan (Grantchester, Doc Martin), Abigail Lawrie (Tin Star).
