THE CASUAL VACANCY centres on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English  village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the  pretty façade, however, is a town at war. The rich at war with the  poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their  husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. Pagford is not what it  first seems.

Don’t miss your chance to own this gripping new drama as THE CASUAL  VACANCY comes to Blu-ray and DVD from 15th June 2015.
