Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Drama adapted from the novel by JK Rowl­ing, set in an English vil­lage whose seem­ingly idyl­lic fa­cade hides a com­mu­nity at war. At the parish coun­cil meet­ing, chair­man Howard Mol­li­son in­tro­duces his plans to turn the com­mu­nity cen­tre into a health spa, but he reck­ons with­out lo­cal solic­i­tor Barry Fair­brother, who makes an im­pas­sioned speech about the im­por­tance of the cen­tre to the im­pov­er­ished peo­ple of the nearby es­tate. How­ever, an un­ex­pected turn of events leaves an empty seat on the coun­cil – lead­ing to the big­gest battle Pag­ford has ever seen.
