Last Tango In Halifax (2012)
Thursday 20th December 2012
Derek Jacobi (The King's Speech; Borgias; My Week With Marilyn) and Anne Reid (Upstairs, Downstairs; Marchlands) lead the cast in a new romantic comedy series, Last Tango In Halifax, released on DVD by 2entertain on 31st December 2012.
Joined by Sarah Lancashire (Five Daughters; Rose And Maloney), Nicola Walker (Spooks; Being Human), Tony Gardner (My Parents Are Aliens; Fresh Meat), Dean Andrews (Life On Mars; Ashes To Ashes; Marchlands) and Ronni Ancona (Skins; Big Impression) this six-part drama sees would-be childhood sweethearts Alan (Jacobi) and Celia (Reid) reunited after 60 years.
As their lives collide for a second time, Alan and Celia lament over what might have been as they take us on a life-affirming journey of what can still happen!
Written and created by Sally Wainwright (Scott & Bailey; Unforgiven; At Home WithThe Braithwaites), Last Tango In Halifax sees Alan and Celia unexpectedly but instantly reignite the feelings they had as teenagers. In this uplifting tale the path of true love is anything but smooth and the pair are surprised to find it's their own families who create some rather bumpy obstacles.
Both widowed, it's Alan and Celia's daughters whose dysfunctional lives bring drama at every turn. Caroline (Lancashire), a career-focused head teacher, is worried that her mum is rushing into things with Alan, but with her adulterous husband John (Gardner) back on the scene having left his alcoholic mistress (Ancona) and with relationship issues of her own, she's happy to let things run their course.
Gillian (Walker) works hard on the family farm as well as in the local supermarket and she's pleased her dad has found a companion. But she's currently having her head turned in the wrong direction whilst also dealing with her dead husband's brother (Dean Andrews), as he looks to turn her son Raff (Josh Bolt) against her, meaning she has little time to concentrate on her father's love life.
