As Alan and Celia’s wedding plans gather pace in the final episode of this second season, Gillian’s drunken confession has left Caroline in something of a moral quandary. Caroline’s also struggling to win back the affections of Kate, as Robbie is persuaded to take a chance with Gillian.
Love is firmly in the air, then, and as usual the calibre of the writing and acting is very high indeed. Whether it’s light-hearted japes or more serious, lugubrious subject matter, the performances throughout are first rate, while the exchanges always feel genuine and realistic.
Of course, events culminate in the much-anticipated wedding itself, which doesn’t disappoint. A touching and uplifting affair, it manages to tug on the heartstrings without becoming saccharine. Every plot is concluded quite neatly; given this sort of quality and such impressive ratings, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see ‘Last Tango in Halifax’ get a third series.
