Oh, to live in a world where "Last Tango in Halifax" becomes as crazy-popular as "Downton Abbey. " Both air here on PBS, although "Last Tango" is not under the "Masterpiece" imprint, and both feature British legends (Maggie Smith in "Downton," Derek Jacobi in "Last Tango"). Also, both explore, with no shortage of sentiment or humor, the vagaries of time and tide as well as the essential significance of family.
