We’ve been chatting about the famous nude scenes between her and the pre-James Bond Daniel Craig in the 2003 film The Mother, based on Hanif Kureishi’s controversial tale of a grandmother’s affair with a man half her age. “I rang a friend and said, ‘Have you heard of Daniel Craig?
’ and my friend nearly fainted so I thought, ‘He’s obviously all right then.’” We’re meeting to talk about the new series of Last Tango in Halifax, Sally Wainwright’s drama about two septuagenarians, who rekindle their romance online after 60 years apart.

A rally was held Tuesday outside Halifax City Hall, where protesters denounced Lenehan's decision and welcomed the news of the appeal. "The Halifax-based Avalon Sexual Assault Centre issued a statement saying the case demonstrates the need to clarify the law on consent in the context of intoxication."We need to address the laws, policies, and other systemic barriers that continue to fail victims of sexual assault," said executive director Jackie Stevens.
Roughly 300 people held signs and beat drums under cloudy skies as speakers spoke in front of an arch in Grand Parade Square. "We also need to make sure that supports and services are easily accessible for victims."The centre said victims of sexual violence rarely see their perpetrators held accountable by the justice system, citing statistics showing that between 20, only seven per cent of all alleged sexual assaults involving adults in the Halifax region resulted in a conviction."We need to change the legal system while also supporting victims through access to counselling and other resources," said Stevens.
If there is enough demand, we may add additional meetings in the future.
