The trials and tribulations of Alan Hook (Kevin McNally) – a dutiful but insecure son – who tries to get reacquainted with his eccentric, meddling, know-it-all father, Brian (George Cole) after they have spent a long period of time apart.
Meanwhile, Alan is put upon by everyone else in his own family – His wife Beryl (Julia Hills) always knows best and his teenage son Vincent, (Toby Ross-Bryant) is more sensible and less emotional than his father.
Despite a critical savaging in the press, Dad made it through two series and a Christmas Special before the plug was pulled.
