In the wake of BBC 1's new hit sitcom Father Figure, a remarkable number of people seem to be suggesting they could write a better sitcom than that. Really? well if you want to prove it, why not enter a script into the next Sitcom Trials - deadline October 20th, entry is free, details are here. In the meantime, we continue our look at the Top 10 "Father" sitcoms. And at Number 7 it's...

Bless Me Father was an ITV sitcom starring Arthur Lowe as a catholic priest. Written and narrated by former novice curate Peter De Rosa, under the pseudonym Neil Boyd, and adapted from his series of autobiographical novels, it ran for 21 episodes between 1978 and 1981.
