You can be certain the wrinkles on Dean’s face have never known

the smallest smear of Nivea For Men. His forehead looks like it has been ploughed, and his moustache lies across his upper lip as if it has given up and wants to be left to die.
Can you blame it? For years Dean was a dodgy sergeant in retro detective show Life On Mars, getting his backside kicked daily by two-fisted copper Gene Hunt. Now he’s married to Gillian, the moodiest old soak east of the Pennines — a woman who, even on her cheerful days, possesses the temperament of a sow chewing on rusty barbed wire.
Sir Derek plays Alan, Gillian’s meekly mollifying dad. A good yelling-at is her way of showing him affection. No wonder these two poor blokes exchange furtive updates on her current grumpy status.
The joy of Last Tango is how completely its womenfolk have subjugated their men. Writer Sally Wainwright, who also created Happy Valley, has made the drama’s female characters so utterly dominant that she actually pities the males.
In one scene, Gillian (Nicola Walker) lined up all the men in her family and screamed at them, while they stood with heads bowed, afraid even to flinch. What was their crime? One of them had foolishly mentioned that he liked her green dress... when she wasn’t wearing it. Men — honestly!
Anne Reid and Sarah Lancashire are the other female powerhouses of this show, as Sir Derek’s new love Celia and her daughter, lesbian headmistress Caroline.
