4.0 out of 5 stars Love After Time, 25 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Last Tango in Halifax - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I love the title of this new PBS series, quite different in tone than 'The Last Tango In Paris'. However, it is about love, sex, couples, children, anger and everything in-between.

This series is based on a true story of writer Sally Wainwright's recollection of her mother's second marriage. This series tells a story of a man and a woman who reconnect via Facebook. Each of them had a crush on the other, which was more like love, 50 odd years ago and they meet up. Alan, played by Derek Jacobi, lives with his daughter, Gillian played by the wonderfully expressive, Nicola Walker, and his grandson Raff. They live on a sheep farm out in the country.

Celia, played by Anne Reid was, unhappily married to a man who slept around. She, too lives with her daughter, Caroline, played by Sarah Lancashire, who is the Head of a public school near Yorkshire. They have money, and Caroline likes to think of herself as an upper class.

The first meetings of the families, is for Alan and Celia to tell them they are getting married. No sense in waiting after all this time. That is fine, but both daughters are going through difficult times with the men in their lives and their children. This will not be easy combining both families. A lot of drama and laughs surround both families, you know the kind of drama we all have.

Messes occur, people say uncouth things, they quarrel, they live, they laugh and cry. The difference here is that this wonderful group of actors bring Halifax alive. It is a series to remember.

I see you live in the USA - sorry missed that! Here we may live "near" a town, but Yorkshire is a county - like a US state, so we live "in" a county. :-)

Oh, thank you. We also have counties, but they are rarely referred to 'as living in'. We have towns within counties within states. Each state, however, decides how the counties are used. In Oregon, counties have the sheriffs and road crews. In New England, each town as their own government and town police. There are also county sheriffs who respond to county difficulties.

Also, over here for historical reasons "public school" confusingly means something quite different from in the USA, public schools are actually the more expensive private schools.

Yes, I did know Public School is akin to the US private schools. will there be a Halifax3?

Yes, Series 3 has just finished screening on British television so I assume will become available in other forms in due course if it has not already, although DVDs/ Blu Rays of course tend to drop in price a lot if you wait.

The BBC have announced that there will be a Series 4 as well.
