Sir Derek Jacobi on missing out on the Harry Potter films.

Sir Derek Jacobi is starring in a new comedy series called Last Tango In Halifax. He plays a widower in his 70s who finds love again.

Jacobi talks to Front Row's Mark Lawson about playing a straight character, why gay men rarely get straight roles in Hollywood and why he wishes he had been involved in the Harry Potter films.
