Critic Reviews for Last Tango in Halifax Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (10)

Sweet and dear. It's more sweet than sexy, more dear than exciting. Yet the British import Last Tango in Halifax is an absorbing, sometimes surprising tale of late-in-life romance marked by stunning performances.

It's a sweet, touching story, a little pokey at first, but increasingly involving.

Not least of all, it's about portraying older people on TV without patronizing or ridiculing them.

As Shakespeare knew, there's something deeply appealing about the possibility of true love being one day realised, even so greyishly late that the wedding becomes a race against the funeral.

The tender wrap-up will leave the waterworks flushed and refreshed.

The best option for fans of these sorts of humanely drawn series is undoubtedly PBS's Last Tango in Halifax, a charming comedy-drama about finding new love late in life and all the complications that come with any coupling.

Sep 9, 2013 | Full Review…

[It's] the kind of suspense usually reserved for characters with unlined faces and less baggage. These two have earned theirs.

Sep 6, 2013 | Full Review…

There are passages when Last Tango in Halifax appears to consist of little else [than] animosities and ancient grudges melting away with every clinch. And there'll be a lot more hugging before it's over.

Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid appear to be enjoying themselves immensely as former childhood sweethearts who reconnect via Facebook.

Jan 3, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

What makes Last Tango watchable... is another distinguishing feature, a crackerjack cast headlined by Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid as the doughty lovebirds Alan and Celia.
