Last Tango in Halifax

Yorkshire-born Sally Wainwright is the creator of this BAFTA-winning romantic drama. At once comforting and bittersweet, we become immersed in the characters’ lives over the course of its five series, authentically brought to life by Brits Sarah Lancashire, Derek Jacobi, Anne Reid and Nicola Walker. Co-produced by Manchester-based Red Production Company and the BBC.





Alan Buttershaw (Derek Jacobi) and Celia Dawson (Anne Reid) - both widowed and in their seventies - reconnect via social media, rediscovering the feelings they had for each other as teenagers. While their love is celebrated, it bring up some concerns from their respective families, especially Alan's daughter, Gillian (Nicola Walker) and Celia's daughter, Caroline (Sarah Lancashire).
