As the title indicates, this Australian series was a continuation of the long-running British sitcom Father Dear Father. Patrick Cargill repeated his role as widowed novelist Patrick Glover, as did Noel Dyson as Glover's general factotum "Natty" Harris. At last shed of his nubile, slightly daft daughters, Patrick moved to Australia so he could research his next book. But if he hoped for peace and quiet, he was sadly mistaken: Occupying the house owned by his vacationing brother, Patrick also "inherited" a pair of nutty nieces, who were every bit as troublesome as his own offspring. Created by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke, the 14-episode Father, Dear Father in Australia was broadcast by the Seven Network from June 25, 1978, to June 28, 1980.
