The new season of The last tango in Halifax resumes several years after viewers last saw Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid). Seven years after their marriage, they have settled in a nice house, but there are some problems in their new home. Political confrontations, a new job for Alan and other issues create tension in their family. Meanwhile, Celia’s daughter Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) becomes emotionally involved at work, while Alan Gillian’s daughter (Nicola Walker) faces problems with a giraffe on the farm. To complicate matters, Alan’s brother Ted (West) flew in from New Zealand for a visit, but it turned out he only bought a one-way ticket.
