Straight from the mouth of the BBC.

Let’s talk about what we want to see in season 4 of Last Tango in Halifax.
I don’t have a list of things I’d like to see in terms of the dramatic situations the characters get into. But I have some ideas about character arcs and development that I’d love to see. Here’s my wish list.
1. Caroline Has a Sex Life
I was dismayed when Sally Wainwright announced after Kate died that Caroline would not be with another woman (or man). But, as Hazel pointed out in a comment, perhaps Wainwright only meant for that to apply to season 3.
I would like to see the newly out and proud Caroline move on with her life, date some women, and maybe find another love or at least sex.
2. Gillian and Robbie Deal with Eddie
I don’t know how I want the discussion to end up, except I don’t want it to be with Gillian in jail. She made the probable blunder of marrying Robbie. She must deal with her secret or she will become more bonkers than she already is.
3. John Recovers
What does John need to recover from? Being a wanker? Being an alcoholic? Being a whiny cry-baby about women who don’t want him? Constantly hanging around? All of the above?
4. Celia Recovers
What does Celia need to recover from? Being homophobic? Being racist – including, but not limited to people of African, Indian or Pakistani and Scottish descent.
5. Flora is the Jewel in the Family
Caroline, Lawrence, William: they all need to think of Flora as the best thing that ever happened to them. She deserves it. Kate deserves it. Nina Sosanya deserves it after being killed off the show that probably earned her more loyal fans than she’s ever had before. Nina Sosanya deserves it for her role in making Last Tango in Halifax hugely popular.
6. Gary Turns out to be More than Mr. Nutso Moneybags
Gary needs to get into the actual lives of these people he thinks of as his family now. Enough with handing out money like he is the lottery and everyone just pulled a winning number.
