Father, Dear Father

Some more examples of the Father Dear Father opening titles… As talented in comedy as he was in straight drama, Patrick Cargill was excellent in the role of the elegant fusspot Glover. The series is a succession of brief drawing room farces: Glover lives with his teenage daughters, trying to keep them in tow with help from their nanny (Noel Dyson). From time to time, his mother (Joyce Carey), brother (Donald Sinden) or ex-wife (Ursula Howells) turn up and create confusion. Sometimes twee, but good fun in small doses.
