How’s Your Father? 1979

How’s Your Father? is another little gem from the much missed Harry Worth.  How’s Your Father? was a Yorkshire Television production.  Created by the same team who brought us two other Yorkshire Televsion classics: You’re Only Young Twice and That’s My Boy.

The show ran for two series totalling thirteen episodes.  Sadly it would prove to be the great comic’s last TV series.  A long battle with spinal cancer would take it’s toll eventually leading to Harry Worth’s passing in 1989.


Harry Worth plays Harry Matthews, a middle-aged widower struggling to raise two children – the good-looking Martin, and Shirley, a precocious schoolgirl.

The show revolves around their day to day struggles as Harry tries to bridge the age gap.
