Watch! The first three episodes of “Last Tango in Halifax”


We had love at first sight with Last Tango in Halifax, which features late-in-life lesbian Caroline (played by Sarah Lancashire) coming to terms with her sexuality,and coming out to her mother. The show was recently renewed for a second season, and Season 1 is currently airing on PBS. PBS has kindly made the first three episode available online, and we present them below for your viewing pleasure.

Episode 1: Celia and Alan, childhood sweethearts reunited after 60 years, are stranded when Alan’s car is stolen. They phone their respective daughters, arrogant Caroline and happy-go-lucky Gillian, to pick them up. Seconds before they actually meet, the women argue bitterly over a parking space. Celia and Alan introduce them to one another and make a surprising announcement.

Episode 2: Celia and Alan are enjoying their new life together, but widowed Gillian and separated Caroline have problems with their respective children and partners. During Celia and Alan’s engagement party, Gillian’s son is arrested for assaulting his mother’s young lover.

Episode 3: Celia and Alan decide on a civil marriage ceremony to be held at an eerie medieval hall near Halifax. As they visit, a storm is brewing, the lights go out and they’re locked in the ancient building. In the midst of a thunderstorm, Gillian’s Land Rover inexplicably catches fire.
