A two-part opener is due to be shown at Christmas. My joy is complete, love that programme!

There is an interview in the Daily Mail today with Derek Jacobi and Ann Reid. Ann was complaining that the new series is focusing more on the younger folks rather than her and Derek. Bizarrely the pair of them have released a CD (singing together). I too love the programme.

Great news!tchsmile

Brilliant! Wish it was ten parts. Such a lovely programme.

Ann Reid does seem to be a bit of a complainer. I've never forgotten how dismissive she was of the GN award she won - voted best older acress of the year or something similar...

Love the prgramme, though!

Love the programme but agree with Ana about Anne Reid. I wanted to give her a slap and tell her to get over herself when she turned her nose up at the award (which she denied but does anyone believe her?)

There is so much going on with the younger generation in LTIH it's much better to focus on them. Love Sarah Lancashire and Nicola Walker and I can't wait to see that house again.

Yes! - Yes!- Yes! Delighted that this programme is back. I generally don't get on too well with dramas but I really liked this one. I agree about Anne Reid. I have noticed that she is a bit 'difficult' sometimes in interviews.

Loved it! So pleased to hear this.

Anne Reid is also on my ever-growing list of People I Do Not Care For. Since she was on Who Do You Think You Are?, when she didn't come across as a very likeable person. To be fair, I often can't remember why people are on that list, I must just be a bit of a judgemental so and so!

Excellent actor, though.

Maggiemaybe Yes I felt that after watching her on who do you think you are.

Yes I loved Last Tango as well. Anne Reid said if they realised it was going to be such a hit the marriage would not have happened until much later. They are limited to story lines now. I thought story lines around the other actors a could be developed quite a bit. Sarah Lancashire and Nicola Walker were excellent.

I did like most of it, but not sure that I want to watch more.It got to the point where virtually all the cast were annoying me.grin Especially Ann Reid and Derek Jacobi.

So pleased this is coming back - I remember them saying there would be another series. I adore Derek Jacobi - he could spend an hour reading the shipping forecast and I would be glued to it.

I loved that, it wa s faultless. And such a clever title.

I really like it - and I like Ann Reid too.

Another fan here. It absorbs me, excellent acting and interesting storylines with so many undertones. Also love the scenery.
