Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid lead stellar cast in the critically acclaimed British drama premieres September 8 on PBS north. The six-part serie is an uplifting comedy/drama about romance and second chances. Full of zesty humor, authentic characters and glorious dialogue, it’s about timeless love in a very modern setting.

Childhood sweethearts Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid), both widowed and in their 70s, fall for each other all over again when they are reunited after nearly 60 years. The celebratory tale of the power of love at any age is also a story about family — a family with baggage. Alan and Celia’s daughters, whose dysfunctional lives bring drama at every turn, would never dream of getting in the way of their parents’ happiness. But somehow they just can’t help themselves.
