Father Dear Father: The Complete Series 1 Film Poster


Complete first series of the early '70s daytime comedy serial. Patrick Glover (Patrick Cargill) is a hack author of seedy pulp thrillers. His wife has gone and he's left holding the babies. Rather two rather lippy teenage girls along with housekeeper Nanny (Noel Dyson) and the family pet, H.G. Wells - a gigantic St. Bernard. As if his life wasn't complicated enough, he's also having a tempestuous affair with his literary agent Georgy (Sally Bazely). The series was renowned for tight, mile-a-minute wordplay and is played in the old-school method as though a stage play. Episodes included: 'The Proposal', 'Pussies Galore', 'The Return Of The Mummy', 'Publish And Be Damned', 'It Won't Be A Stylish Marriage', 'I Should Have Danced All Night' and 'Lost Weekend'.
