Father, Dear Father - The Complete Series

Patrick Glover (Patrick Cargill), a writer of trashy thriller novels, finds himself bringing up his two irrepressible daughters, Karen (Anne Holloway) and Anna (Natasha Pyne), following his divorce from their mother, Barbara. Cue misunderstandings caused by the age and gender gap, as dolly-birds Anna and Karen get up to all kinds of mischief - much to the consternation of their father. Holding it all together is the put-upon housekeeper, Matilda 'Nanny' Harris (Noel Dyson) and the family's St Bernard dog, H. G. Wells.

Written by screenwriting legends Brian Cooke (Man About The House) and Johnnie Mortimer (Never The Twain) and directed by William G. Stewart (Bless This House), Father, Dear Father ran for an impressive seven series between 1968 and 1973. Every episode is included in this set, as well as the film spin-off from 1972.
