From award winning writer Sally Wainwright comes this uplifting comedy drama about romance and second chances. Childhood sweethearts Alan and Celia, both widowed and in their 70s, fall for each other all over again when they are reunited on the internet after nearly 60 years. Their relationship is a celebratory tale of the power of love at any age. But this is also a story about family, and with family comes baggage. Celia's respectable, head teacher daughter Caroline is juggling bringing up two boys and dealing with her husband's infidelity, while Alan's rebellious, complicated middle-aged daughter Gillian struggles to make a living on a beautiful but bleak farm. How will these two very different women cope with their parents' announcement that they've decided to get married?
|1||VideoEpisode 1||Celia and Alan haven’t seen one another for sixty years. When they’re reunited via a website, their passionate feelings for one another are reignited. When Alan’s car is stolen, he and Celia end up stranded in Skipton, where they ring their respective daughters to pick them up. Apart from being in their mid-forties, it’s obvious that arrogant Caroline and happy-go-lucky Gillian have almost nothing in common. Seconds before they actually meet, they argue bitterly over a parking space. Inside the cafe, Celia and Alan introduce them to one another and make a surprising announcement.||55:51||£1.89||View in iTunes|

Love the series the story is beautiful. One question I saw clips of the show on You Tube first and there are scenes on there that aren't in the episodes I've bought from iTunes and I don't understand why that is?
Absolutely believable. Well written, beautifully structured plot and superb casting. One of those series that you wish would go on for a very long time.
Great humour, great characters, brilliantly written...
