The Casual Vacancy centres on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty fa├žade however, 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. Pagford is not what it first seems.

This definitely isn't a feel good mini series, nonetheless it provides a great insight into the thoughts and feelings of the people of Pagford and highlights a serious issue that can get to your heart.

I wasn't immediately impressed by this show but as it progressed and events began to unfold, I really felt drawn to it. The show gives insight into the lives of the rich and the poor and how their lives differ and may even be similar. I was gripped by storylines such as child abuse, drug abuse, neglect, and most shocking of all, Krystal's untimely death which was such a surprise. She was a strong character who grew on me as her true self was revealed and I felt that her death was a great way to end the series.
