Okay, are any of you out there starting to replace Celia with Gary as your pick for most annoying, selfish character this series? Someone please tell me what is wrong with that man! Let’s take a look at Mr. Jackson’s behavior as well as the other happenings in this week’s recap.
Just watching this episode made me weary what with all the grief and the fussy baby and the paranoid, illegitimate son and such; however, the need to recap is stronger than the need to sleep. So onward and upward…
This episode takes us through a roller-coaster of emotions. It starts with a celebration, offers up some reconciliation and a pair of marriage proposals is added to the mix for good measure. Alas, it ends in tragedy. If only it could be different, but this isLast Tango in Halifax so what can you expect?
Welcome back and we’re jumping in right where we left off in the last episode of with Alan and his newfound son, Gary Jackson, meeting for the first time. It’s a veritable love fest; Alan feeling like he’s always known Gary from the moment he “clapped eyes” on him, Gary not judging Alan for using his mother in a moment of weakness.
Alan explained about how he’d married Gillian’s mum, Eileen, on the rebound and that when he met Gary’s mum at work she reminded him of his true love Celia. He said they were old enough to know better, and after it happened Mary left so he never knew there was a baby. Alan would like to think if he had been aware he would have done the right thing no matter how difficult.
Welcome back to the new series of Last Tango in Halifax! It’s less than two months since Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid) were wed in that lovely Christmas ceremony. But as you know, things can never run smoothly for long in the Buttershaw/Dawson clan.
This week viewers witnessed an engagement and an infidelity from an unlikely character with unexpected consequences. Also a family friend finds himself in legal and financial trouble.

Popular romantic drama Last Tango in Halifax is returning to PBS stations this summer. The third season of the series – which follows the story of an older couple who rediscover their love for each later in life – will begin on Sunday, June 28.
Sir Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid star as Alan and Celia, two childhood sweethearts reunited by the power of Facebook. Nicola Walker and Sarah Lancashire play Alan and Celia’s adult daughters, who both lead rather drama-filled lives of their own.
Season 3 will once again be comprised of six episodes and runs through the beginning of August, airing as part of a three-hour British programming block on PBS that includes the new adaptation of Poldark and World War I medical drama The Crimson Field.
This may seem surprising news to American fans, who haven't even seen Season 3 yet, but popular romantic drama Last Tango in Halifax has already been given the green light for a fourth season! The BBC officially announced the renewal via their Twitter account, following the conclusion of the show's third season run in the UK.
The series stars Sir Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid as an older couple who found a second chance at love with one another thanks to the power of social media, fifty years after they first met. Sarah Lancashire and Nicola Walker play Alan and Celia's grown children, who lead rather drama-filled lives of their own.
Good news for fans of romantic dramaLast Tango in Halifax- Series 3 is almost upon us and, while American fans are going to have to wait a little bit longer to see the new season for ourselves than our UK counterparts, we can still watch the new offiicial BBC trailer on repeat and make ourselves feel a little bit better.
Can you believe Last Tango in HalifaxSeries 2 is over already? I guess it’s true what they say -time flies when you’re engrossed in a proper family drama. Since we last talked, quite a lot of time has passed and life for the newlywed Buttershaws and their kin has been eventful to say the least. While estrangement was rife earlier in the series, by the finale, reconciliation abounded. Loss was tempered with the promise of new life and love definitely trumped angst in the end.
Like many of you, I’ve been faithfully watching Series 2 of Last Tango in Halifax, a late-in-life romance/family drama. But half way through last Sunday’s episode I started to wonder why we haven’t done recaps of this exceedingly chat worthy show. I won’t lie, more than once I’ve rolled my eyes at the constant barrage of melodramatic circumstances that have befallen the Buttershaw/Dawson clan. But I’ve also witnessed authentic family dynamics that ring so true I feel that they are speaking directly to me. In my opinion, the merits outweigh the soap opera elements. In fact, I liken it to a more serious and decidedly adult-themed Brady Bunch for our time.
So Last Tango fans, here’s my rehash of the most important developments in the very eventful lives of our favorite West Yorkshire residents. So far this series has boiled down to three major themes: estrangement, money and babies.
