Last Tango In Halifax Series 5 Episode 1 Review!

Welcome to my review of Last Tango In Halifax Series 5 Episode 1! #LastTangoInHalifax #Halifax #SarahLancashire I was fortunate enough to attend a screening and Q&A of the first LTIH episode up in Halifax (yes, Sarah Lancashire was there!) After often shouting at Google, "When does Last Tango In Halifax air?!" (Sunday 23 February at 9pm on BBC One), I'm very excited to finally be able to upload this. I'm very (im)patiently waiting for Sally Wainwright to begin writing the next series of Happy Valley. Catherine Cawood is love. Scroll down to find out more, or head to IMDb or Wikipedia!
