The BBC have today released promotional pictures for the second episode of Series Three of Last Tango in Halifax, written by Sally Wainright and starring Sir Derek Jacobi, Ann Reid, Sarah Lancashire, Nicola Walker, Nina Sosanya, Rupert Graves, Dean Andrews and many more. The first episode will be broadcast this Sunday (the 28th of December) with episode 2 following on the 4th of January 2015. More promotional pictures below. Episode One and 2’s synopsis can be found below but as the synopsis for Episode 2 rather spoils Episode One I’d advise those who don’t want to be spoiled to avoid reading it – for those who do it shall be highlighted at the bottom of the post.
Episode 2 of Series Three of Last Tango In Halifax airs on the 4th of January 2015 on BBC One from 9:00pm to 10:00pm.
Episode One Synopsis Below:
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.
Episode 2 synopsis is below the next picture.
Shocked and struggling to hide her disappointment, Celia can’t help but compare Alan’s deceit to that of her first husband Kenneth and decides to move back to their flat in Harrogate. Meanwhile Alan, Gillian, Raff and Ellie embrace the unexpected addition to Alan’s life and attend a dinner at Gary’s house. They all get on well and leave enamoured by his charm, not to mention his grand home.
Gillian is left humiliated at work by an unexpected visit from Robbie’s other half Cheryl, who reveals she knows that Gillian and Robbie are sleeping together. Cheryl makes a scene which results in Gillian losing her job. Later, Robbie turns up at the farm to apologise and reveals he has split up with Cheryl. Could reconciliation be on the cards for Gillian and Robbie?
Caroline and Kate wake up giddy on their wedding day but the happy mood is soon broken by Celia’s revelation that she doesn’t agree with the marriage and has decided not to come to the ceremony. Caroline appeals to Celia but is met with determined resistance. Alan is bitterly disappointed by her behaviour but is the marriage the only thing that Celia can’t come to terms with?
At the registry office, an upset Caroline lashes out at Alan – if Celia’s not coming then there’s no use in him being there. She heads into the registry office leaving an isolated Alan behind.
