Having learnt that her daughter Caroline is a lesbian, Celia is shocked and judgemental. “What will folk think?” she demands of her fiancé, Alan. They’ll be “pointing and saying things”.
As Sally Wainwright’s clever, multilayered drama ends, what started out as the most dreamy of courtships appears to have hit some very choppy waters when Alan (Derek Jacobi) decides he doesn’t like this new side to Celia (Anne Reid). Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) isn’t enamoured of it, either: “You’re going to die lonely and bitter,” she yells at her mother when the pair trade cruelties in a terrible row.

Celia reacts badly to John's revelation that Caroline is gay and makes no attempt to accept her daughter's new partner, leading to a bitter argument.

Sally Wainwright's drama, starring Derek Jacobi, Anne Reid, Sarah Lancashire, Nicola Walker and Dean Andrews.
