First-look image and details revealed for Christmas Special

BBC One has confirmed Last Tango In Halifax has begun filming on the two-part Christmas Special episodes starring Sarah Lancashire, Anne Reid, Derek Jacobi, and Nicola Walker.

Produced by RED Production Company, and created and written by Sally Wainwright, the series is set two years after Kate’s tragic death.

The hour-long episodes will see Caroline (Lancashire) coming to terms with yet more changes in her life. With a new job at a very different school, a new family home in Huddersfield and a chance encounter with a potential love interest, could things be looking up for her and her children?

Meanwhile, Gillian (Walker) is struggling to come to terms with the unusual activity that keeps happening in the barn. With issues from her past coming back to haunt her, will she let them affect her relationship with Robbie (Dean Andrews)?

Sarah Lancashire says: “It’s brilliant to be back filming Last Tango in Halifax again and to be back with everyone. This Christmas special is a very eventful one and it will be great to see how everyone’s lives have changed over the past two years.”

RED Production Company’s Founder and Executive Producer Nicola Shindler added: “Sally has created an absolutely fantastic two-part special, with a very engaging plot and a brilliant combination of comedy and drama. We can’t wait to share this much-loved show with fans over the festive period.”
