      Season 5 – Last Tango in Halifax

      2020 Romance Comedy List
      86% 7 Reviews Tomatometer 91% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score This romantic comedy involves Alan Buttershaw and Celia Dawson, two 70-something widowed people. After their respective grandsons put their profiles on a popular social-networking site, the two rediscover feelings for each other similar to the ones they had many decades earlier as teenagers. Their relationship is a celebration of the power of love at any age, but it comes with obstacles -- namely their families. Alan's daughter, Gillian, and Celia's daughter, Caroline, are polar opposites and, while neither would ever think about getting in the way of her parent's happiness, the situation is a bit disconcerting.

      Previous Don Aucoin Boston Globe By the end, Last Tango in Halifax had begun to spin its narrative wheels. But it’s notable that at no point did the performances flag. Dec 29, 2023 Full Review Melinda Houston Sydney Morning Herald It's as embracingly warm and bracingly funny as it's always been. It's full of beautiful small touches. Aug 12, 2020 Full Review Sean O'Grady Independent (UK) A defiantly robust return. 4/5 Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Jackie K. Cooper Still beautifully acted and the plot still manages to enthrall the viewer. Want another season but if it has to end this is a good way. 8/10 Jan 29, 2021 Full Review Louisa Mellor Den of Geek 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 Christopher Stevens Daily Mail (UK) A soft touch he may be, but Alan is practically the only likeable character in this sour family drama. 2/5 Feb 25, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Belinda W Excellent binge-worthy British series with likeable story lines and solid characters delivered through great acting. Certainly worth a re-think from the producers to continue on from Season 5. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/01/23 Full Review Rusty J Last Tango is top notch -slight slippage in season 5 but still ranked great especially compared to other series. You won't be disappointed with this one Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved all 5 seasons of this show (season 4 was a 2-part Christmas special), but Rotten Tomatoes will only let me rate/review one season at a time. It was funny, heartwarming, poignant and at times devastating. Very rarely have I both laughed uncontrollably and openly wept at the same show. Kudos to the writers, directors and actors for working so well together to make such a great show. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Great series, great characters, and wonderful stories! Hats off!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Last Tango in Halifax is a charming series about some older people in the UK. I like the sense of humor.
