Alan and Celia are seven years into their marriage, and, having moved into a desirable bungalow with stunning views across the Calder Valley, they aren't seeing eye to eye. Celia is baffled when Alan applies for a job in a local supermarket, and Alan can't understand why they need an expensive new kitchen. Alan's brother, Ted, has booked a last-minute trip from New Zealand, which means more spending to kit out the spare bedroom, and Gillian, already stretched with bank repayments, discovers she has woodworm nibbling at her roof timbers. Having transformed her difficult new school with phenomenal success, a guest appearance by megastar author Judith Tyzack threatens to bring a fresh challenge to Caroline's headship. A phone call from New Zealand gives Alan and Celia pause for thought, and tempers get frayed at Caroline and Gillian's joint birthday celebration, when money becomes the topic of conversation. Meanwhile, Judith presents John with an awkward proposition.

Celia is quick to apologise for causing a scene, but with Alan seeking excitement outside the bungalow and Celia seeking it within, their relationship comes under increasing strain. Questions are raised when Ted arrives from overseas with a lifetime's worth of luggage and two young New Zealanders, Mia and Alyssa, in tow. Raff is left speechless when a giraffe turns up at Far Slack farm, and Gillian is riddled with old anxieties when it brings unwarranted attention to the barn. Meanwhile, Caroline and Ruth get on like a house on fire until Caroline lets her guard down and receives an unexpected response. As Judith looks to the future, John begins to look the other way. Ted's return stirs up the past for Alan: when he learns that Ted has bought a one-way ticket, Alan begins to suspect that he isn't telling the full story.

Critic Reviews for Last Tango in Halifax Season 5

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

It's as embracingly warm and bracingly funny as it's always been. It's full of beautiful small touches.

A defiantly robust return.

Feb 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Once it had shaken off the cobwebs and got stuck into the wider, strained family dynamics it found its mojo and we were back in business.

Feb 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This beautifully arranged story of three or four (intermarried) families in a country village is a cameo of the UK painted with the finest brush. This new instalment feels as though the series never went away.

Feb 25, 2020 | Full Review…

A soft touch he may be, but Alan is practically the only likeable character in this sour family drama.

    Last Tango in Halifax is a charming series about some older people in the UK. I like the sense of humor.
