The Last Tango in Halifax DVD


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. [show more]

Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid star in this heartwarming romantic comedy-drama from the pen of award-winning writer Sally Wainwright (SCOTT AND BAILEY). The six-part series tells the story of Alan and Celia, who are reunited 60 years after a teenage tryst, only to find themselves falling for each other all over again. But 60 years is a long time to accumulate baggage, and making sure Alan's daughter Gillian (Nicola Walker) and Celia's daughter Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) get on is going to be hard work!

Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid star in this BBC drama as an aging man and woman who rediscover the feelings they once had for each other. Widowed 70-somethings Alan Buttershaw (Jacobi) and Celia Dawson (Reid) become reacquainted after their respective grandsons create Facebook accounts for them. 60 years previously, during their teenage years, the two fell in love and, despite having since gone their separate ways in life, they find their feelings are as strong as ever. However, Alan's daughter, Gillian (Nicola Walker), and Celia's daughter, Caroline (Sarah Lancashire), are nothing alike and both are dealing with their own issues which proves problematic for their parents' rekindled romance.
