Patrick Glover (Patrick Cargill) is a divorced thriller novelist attempting to raise & keep the peace between his two teenaged daughters Anna (Natasha Pyne) & Karen (Ann Holloway). Helping (but sometimes hindering) his efforts is Nanny (Noel Dyson), his ex-wife Barbara (Ursula Howells), his dotty mother (Joyce Carey) & his agent/girlfriend Georgie (Sally Bazely) …. not forgetting H.G. Wells, Patrick’s lazy St. Bernard. Premiering in 1968, Patrick Cargill (already a popular actor) found his comic niche as harassed father of 2 Patrick Glover in Father, Dear Father. The series became one of Thames’ most successful & long running sitcoms, spanning 7 seasons including a feature film version in 1972 & a spin off series filmed in Australia. For the first time, the rarely seen original black & white episodes from Series 1 of Father, Dear Father are collected on DVD, complete & uncut including the original broadcast adcaps.
