When Alan Hook's father, Brian, has a bout of illness, the two are brought together after many years of growing further apart. Unfortunately for Alan, he finds his well-intentioned father to be even more annoying now than he did when he was a teenager; and Vincent, Alan's son, finds himself just as distanced from Alan as Alan does from Brian.

Starring Kevin McNally (Pirates Of The Caribbean) and George Cole (Minder) as Alan and Brian respectively, Dad was created and penned by 2point4 Children writer/creator Andrew Marshall.
