Not every widowed seventy-year-old is lucky enough to have a daughter willing to provide him with a home in his declining years. And not every daughter is unlucky enough to have a father as awkward, cantankerous and mischievous as Tommy Butler. Comedy veteran Jimmy Jewel stars as Tommy, a retired railway worker who goes to live with his long-suffering daughter Vera in her high-rise flat when his home is demolished. While his son-in-law Brian hardly welcomes the new domestic arrangement, Tommy, having left all his old friends behind, feels particularly lost - until he strikes up an unlikely friendship with twelve-year-old tearaway Charlie Harris. This warm, touching sitcom was written by the hugely successful team of Vince Powell and Harry Driver (Nearest and Dearest, Bless This House), and originally ran from 1973 to 1977. This set includes the pilot play from 1972 alongside all six episodes from series one.
