Trivia

In the opening credits the "family tree" shows the actors birth dates under each actors name. Both Caroline (Celias' daughter) and Gillian (Alans' daughter) are supposed to have the same birthday, which is brought up specifically in the series. However both show different months under their names in the credits, which does not contradict that part of the story since it's actor birthdays, not character birthdays displayed. See more »

If Sally Wainwright had anything to do with it, watch it!
7 November 2014 | by stevetan-toSee all my reviews

Thank you Netflix, for introducing us to the work of Sally Wainwright (and to actors like Sarah Lancashire!). This has to be one of the sweetest, nicest, most absorbing series I have seen in years - so much better than the usual run of the mill North American stuff. It takes its time to introduce you to the lives and thoughts of its cast, and in doing so, it captures you completely. You fall in love with haughty Caroline and mixed up, do anything for love Gillian. Even the less sympathetic characters - John and Judith - are fun to be with as you wait to see them plunge into their next disaster. As for the two lovebirds, Alan and Celia, they are just so believable and such a delight to spend time with. After watching this, I've discovered Scott & Bailey, also by Sally Wainwright and can't believe the same person wrote such two very different series. I've also watched Happy Valley with Sarah Lancashire and she is incredible. The contrast with her character in Last Tango is stunning. So once again, thank you Netflix. Thank you Sally Wainwright!
