Brand new, quintessentially British comedy Decline and Fall arrives on BBC One this spring. Adapted for the first time on TV from Evelyn Waugh's classic satire, it stars renowned comedian Jack Whitehall (Bad Education), Hollywood's favourite Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and one of Britain's greatest stage and screen actors David Suchet (Agatha Christie's Poirot). This rambunctious new series is set for its DVD debut courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Set for a quiet life of contemplation as a priest, Paul Pennyfeather (Whitehall), is shocked when he is unceremoniously expelled from Oxford University through no fault of his own.

Without a private fortune to fall back on, Paul is forced to take up a teaching position at a substandard boarding school in rural Wales. But it soon becomes apparent that Paul is not a natural disciplinarian and he finds scant comfort in drinking - to excess - with the other teachers.

When Paul meets Margot Beste-Chetwynde (Longoria), a wealthy widow and mother of one of his pupils, things start to look up. Could his fortunes finally be changing?

This riotous satire stars a stellar all-star cast including Douglas Hodge (Mansfield Park), Stephen Graham (This Is England), Vincent Franklin (Happy Valley), and Jason Watkins (Taboo), and arrives on DVD on 17th April 2017 courtesy of Acorn Media UK.
