Product description

Product Description

Starring Anne Reid, Derek Jacobi, Sarah Lancashire and Nicola Walker.

Childhood sweethearts, Alan and Celia are both now widowed and in their 70s. When their grandsons connect them through the internet, they rediscover feelings for one another that just might have blossomed 60 years ago. Still, it’s never too late… or is it?

For all the what-might-have-beens, their lives have moved on and both Alan and Celia have daughters, whose dysfunctional lives bring drama at every turn. Celia’s daughter Caroline, a career-focused head teacher, is dealing with the return of her adulterous husband John; while Alan’s hard-working farmer daughter Gillian is distracted by the advances of a younger lover and the accusations of her brother-in-law, who’s convinced she was involved in the death of her husband.

Neither daughter would ever dream of getting in the way of their parents’ happiness. But somehow life and love are never quite that straightforward.

This programme is a kind of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ for the 2010s, but with added lesbians and more female central characters generally, as befits our more socially liberal age.

It is written by Sally Wainwright and stars (among others) Sarah Lancashire, the two of whom also collaborated on the good but much bleaker and also Yorkshire-set, crime drama ‘Happy Valley’.

The title of this programme ‘The Last Tango in Halifax’ rather tells you what to expect.

Adapting the title of the controversial 1972 erotic film ‘The last Tango in Paris’ by substituting Halifax in West Yorkshire for the chic city of Paris, you can guess that this programme thinks itself just slightly more funny and clever than actually it is, substituting the love lives of elderly and middle-aged Yorkshire couples for the grand passion of Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider in the original film.

This is not to say that this is not a good programme.

After the slightly disappointing first couple of episodes this builds to be an interesting and reasonably affectionate look at the late-flowering romances of Yorkshire provincial town and rural folk, with generally good characters and good actors. Roni Ancona is good in a relatively small part as the unstable Judith, as is Nicola Walker as Gillian; Anne Reid’s character Celia seems more of a slightly silly stereotype and becomes annoying at times.

Unfortunately there are no DVD extras, although this is the kind of programme in which it would be really good to have even a short interview with each of the main actors to compare what they are like when not ‘in character’ to how they play their parts. As the story is supposed to be partly based on her own family, it would also be good to have had the writer Sally Wainwright explain what is autobiographical, what she changed, and why.

A heart-warming and delightful tale of love lost and found. The on screen chemistry between the two leads is immense. Fully recommended.

My husband and I absolutely adored this programme as it's so very different to so much mundane rubbish on TV these days. The fact that you can settle down and thoroughly enjoy it for an hour without breaks lets the viewer be able to be enthralled without constant interruptions as are on ITV!

I love the emotions the writer puts into it, it covers the lot! A first class cast with Anne Reid and Derek Jacobi playing brilliant parts that the others seem to perfectly blend around. Congratulations BBC!!

To anyone who has not yet seen it, it's well worth the money and you'll truly enjoy the time spent. BTW, I always buy from Amazon as you can at least rely on them if anything is wrong with your purchase.
