Many people will have missed this on television because it was broadcast at the same time as the unmissable Downton Abbey. However, if anyone omitted to record it, let me just whisper to you that it consists of the most compelling acting and original script writing.
Single Father is refreshing in that it avoids all the cliches of bereavement, of parenthood, of family relationships. The unexpected turn of events rings true. Single Father even avoids all the cliches about Glasgow, showing the city in a more realistic light.

Acting of the standard that David Tennant unfailingly produces can mean only one thing.....Arise, Sir David!

I was one of those people who had missed 'Single Father' because of Downton Abbey and purchased the DVD pretty quickly on recommendation of a friend who had seen the drama on the telly. I was not disappointed.

Although sometimes hard to watch (I'm not good with grief), I found this 4-parter absolutely un-put-downable and would highly recommend it to anyone, not only David Tennant fans.

I have watched all four episodes of this brilliant drama and cannot recommend it highly enough. It tackles some very challenging issues with a reality that is refreshing. The acting is fantastic, enabling the viewer to be totally absorbed by the story line. As a father myself, I can feel myself being transported into the emotional turmoil the death of a partner and mother to your children would bring. The fact that there is a lightness to this story as well means you are able to continue watching all the way to the end, being entertained and challenged at the same time.

Single father is a story about the mourning of a very loved one, a wife and mother ; despite this, it's not a despairing story. It tells how the family manage to cope with their sorrow, life everyday and some unexpected secrets...

I'm a David Tenant fan so it wasn't hard to like this - a great and moving story with a good twist at the end.

David Tennant gave an inspired performance in the tragic, complicated drama that is worth watching. I might watch it again! EW

It would have been excellent if the Suranne Jones' character hadn't been so annoying, otherwise a very interesting and believable show
