The BBC have today released promotional pictures for the hit BBC One show Last Tango in Halifax. The new series is set to air on the 28th of December on BBC One from 9pm till 10pm. Below are some more promotional pictures plus a brief, slightly spoilery synopsis for the first episode.
Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid return for the third series of the BAFTA Award-winning series Last Tango in Halifax as love struck septuagenarians Alan and Celia.
Following her BAFTA win for Best Supporting Actress, Sarah Lancashire also returns for series three as uncompromising Caroline and Nicola Walker is back as troubled Gillian, following rave reviews at the Young Vic’s A View from the Bridge.
The synopsis for episode one is beneath the next picture. It is slightly spoilerific so be warned.
We join the first episode of the heart-warming series on Valentine’s Day, at a date between Gillian and Gary, a handsome man from Halifax. But as the evening draws on, things aren’t quite what they seem with charming, dazzling Gary.
Following on from last series’ Christmas wedding ceremony, Alan and Celia discuss going on a honeymoon adventure to New Zealand to visit Alan’s brother Ted. Their happiness is short-lived however when someone turns up from Alan’s past with devastating consequences.
In a happy turn of events, Caroline proposes to a heavily pregnant Kate. Although Celia seems happy for them, predictably she can’t help but comment on the fact that their baby will grow up without a father. Meanwhile a distressed John arrives at Caroline’s house after Judith has a miscarriage.
