New BBC One comedy Decline And Fall to star Jack Whitehall and Eva Longoria

Decline And Fall follows Paul Pennyfeather (played by Jack Whitehall) as an inoffensive student at Oxford University in the 1920s, who has been made a laughing stock by a prank and is subsequently wrongly accused of indecent exposure.

Poirot star David Suchet joins the cast as Dr. Fagan, the headmaster of a public school in Wales where Pennyfeather then goes on to find employment.
