LAST TANGO IN HAL­I­FAX, ABC1, 7.30pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Saturday -

IF you’re the sort of per­son who tunes into Bri­tish drama on the ABC on Satur­day night — and you know who you are — you’ll love this. It’s so cosy and mid­dle class, it’s like be­ing en­veloped in a warm bath and sip­ping a nice cup of tea. It’s also very good, pack­ing more story into an hour than most movies. The cen­tral premise— two old coots rekin­dle their teenage re­la­tion­ship on Face­book af­ter 60 years — is nice enough, but there’s also plenty more go­ing on, in­clud­ing a widow blamed for the death of her hus­band, ‘‘ women in com­fort­able shoes’’ and a slow hatch­back car chase. Likely the best thing on tonight.
