Father, Dear Father trivia

The Bentley car, a 1954 drophead R-type, frequently featured in the series really was the property of star Patrick Cargill.

A 6-and-a-half minute sketch in entertainment special The Edward Woodward Hour, broadcast on 4th August 1971, was a cross-over between Father, Dear Father and Woodward's espionage action-adventure drama series Callan. Patrick Cargill, Natasha Pyne and Ann Holloway all reprised their roles.
