TV Preview: Last Tango in Halifax
Monday, 3 February 2020 – 7:00pm The May Fair Hotel, Stratton St, Mayfair, London W1J 8LT
A preview of the next instalment of the BAFTA-winning BBC One Drama followed by a Q&A with writer Sally Wainwright, actor Anne Reid, actor Nicola Walker and further cast TBA
Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid) are now seven years into their marriage but, having moved into a desirable bungalow with stunning views across the Calder Valley, they aren’t quite seeing eye to eye. It isn’t just their differing politics that’s a source of tension; Alan’s new supermarket job brings an unexpected challenge in the form of a wild local lad, and at Far Slack Farm, Gillian (Nicola Walker) faces trouble with a giraffe.
Meanwhile John (Tony Gardner) is back on the scene, and Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) finds herself entangled in an emotional debacle with someone at work. Into all of this jets Alan’s brother Ted (Timothy West) on holiday from New Zealand. But it turns out he’s only bought a one-way ticket… and he hasn’t come alone.
Last Tango In Halifax (4×60’) is a Lookout Point (Gentleman Jack, Les Misérables, War And Peace) production for the BBC. The series is written by Sally Wainwright (Gentleman Jack, Happy Valley), directed by Gareth Bryn (Hidden, Hinterland) and produced by Ken Horn (Line of Duty, The Moorside). Executive producers are Faith Penhale and Laura Lankester for Lookout Point, Ben Irving for the BBC, and Sally Wainwright.
Public tickets will be on sale from Friday 24 January, 12.30.
