Classic 70's farce,
This review is from: Father Dear Father - Series 5 - Complete [DVD]  (DVD)
More fun with Patrick and his extended family,if you include Nanny and HG!
Its the usual wrong end of the stick type of humour,that should appeal to carry on fans as well as those(Like myself)who love comedy from the 70's.
Guests stars in this series include Donald Sinden,who plays Patricks brother,Richard O'Sullivan and Jack Smethurst.Also the fab Joyce Carey pops up again as Patrick's forgetful mother,and the very Glamorous Ursula Howells as Miss Barbera.
Its a harmless night of 1970's entertainment, there's no bad language,no racist humour,some suggestive comments!It was very popular in its day,not sure if the modern generation would tune in,the episode "The Life of the Party"is particularly "Groovy" and features the erstwhile 70's "Lad" Robin Askwith.
I would recommended,and have been buying the discs as they are being released,would love to see the (sort of) follow up,"The many wives of Patrick" How about it Network??
