Dad by Andrew Marshall (of Whoops Apocalypse and 2point4 Children fame), starring George Cole, ran on BBC in 1997 and 1999. Wikipedia records that its episode titles were Dadism', 'Dadmestic', 'Dadcipline', 'Habadadery', 'Dadcoholic', 'Holidad', 'Transcendadtal', 'Dadmocracy', 'Reprodadtion', 'Securidad'. 'Dad's Arsenal' and 'Dad Calm'. None of which is painful to read, nor to transcribe.

The Sitcom Trials takes place at The Ring O' Bells, Bath, Nov 29 2013. 5 sitcoms go head to head, who wins? You decide. To enter a script, follow this link, deadline October 20th 2013.
