Ooh, this trailer and clip made me very excited to read and see The Casual Vacancy, though I will admit that Julia McKenzie bringing news of a death makes my mind immediately go to Miss Marple. This is going to be a slightly edgier take on village life, though . . . The Casual Vacancy is a miniseries based on the novel by J.K. Rowling, and it will premiere on the BBC on February 15th. No air date yet in the U.S. yet, but I’ll keep you posted.
