First look at Nicola Walker and Sarah Lancashire in new Last Tango in Halifax
The first pictures from the next instalment of Sally Wainwright’s BAFTA winning Last Tango in Halifax have been released, ahead of the much-loved drama’s return to BBC One in 2020.
Series leads Anne Reid, Derek Jacobi, Nicola Walker and Sarah Lancashire are seen reunited with Timothy West in the sneak peek.
According to the BBC: “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.”
Also returning for the new series are: Ronni Ancona as Judith, Josh Bolt as Raff, Dean Smith as William, Louis Greatorex as Lawrence, Paul Copley as Harry, Katherine Rose Morley as Ellie, Felix Johnson as Angus, and Rachel Leskovac as P.C. Cheryl. Caroline’s daughter Flora, now five years old, will be played by Issacah June Zaman Hatzer, with Calamity, now age seven, played by Tilly Kaye.
Some new faces going the cats for the new outing includes Anna Leong Brophy from EastEnders and Liam McCheyne of Coronation Street fame.
Speaking about the news season, creator Sally Wainright said: “Yet again the entire Last Tango cast has proved to be so wonderful together, so uplifting, heart-warming, touching and funny, as they explore Celia and Alan’s relationship further, under the brilliant breath of fresh air that Gareth Bryn’s direction has given them.”
