The Hobbledehoy look forward to watching the 5th season of one of our favorites from Brit TV – Last Tango in Halifax.
As Series 5 launches, cast members Anne Reid, Derek Jacobi, Sarah Lancashire, Nicola Walker, and writer Sally Wainwright, describe how BAFTA award winning Last Tango in Halifax reflects family life so well.
A lot of you were really, really surprised this didn’t come in higher than no 4 in our list, so good news: it’s at the top of yours. Sarah Lancashire “deserves every award going” for her performance as Sgt Catherine Cawood. Gritty, realistic and believable, Sally Wainwright’s Happy Valley is a crime drama done right.
December 2016 8:15amBrilliant series. Those responsible for the cliched mush that makes up just about every other crime/murder drama on British TV should look at how to construct plot out of characters (rather than the other way round – yes, I’m looking at you, The Missing), sidestep cliches, put the comic and the painful together, and portray people who actually seem to have had relationships with each other before the cameras rolled. I’m wondering what three programmes you have ranked above it.
