Dumbledore a.k.a. Michael Gambon stars in the new HBO TV series based on the J.K. Rowling book The Casual Vacancy. However, this is where the Harry Potter similarities end.

The story is a dramatic one, and features fights, murder and a possible ghost.

Another post-Potter novel of Rowling's – Cuckoo's Calling – is also set to be adapted for the small screen, as the BBC recently announced the TV adaption in December.
