The once frosty Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) is thoroughly thawed, having re-evaluated her life during that long and worrying night when her mum and Alan were missing.
With a spring in her step, she returns to her enviably lovely house in Harrogate to tell her nearly ex-husband John that she is in love. Though with someone else entirely. The look of horror that transfixes his face is an absolute picture (no one can do baffled comedy-appalled quite like Tony Gardner).
Things are even looking up for Alan’s daughter Gillian (Nicola Walker) up there on her chilly farm in the wilds, with all sorts of unsuitable men beating a path to her door. Ends tomorrow.
Alan has trouble deciding which of his old friends he should choose to be his best man. Caroline and Gillian discover they were born on the same day, but their respective celebrations descend into emotional chaos when John discovers his wife has been seeing another woman - and he in turn tells Celia. Sally Wainwright's drama, starring Derek Jacobi, Anne Reid, Sarah Lancashire and Nicola Walker.
