Published

on


In sitcom Holding The Baby Father Gordon Muir copes with bringing up his young son alone and holding down a responsible job. As the series begins Gordon has spent the last being a single dad having caught his wife with another, much younger, man. Now though Gordon’s slobbish brother Rob has moved in to “help” around the house.

Hugh Bonneville replaced Nick Hancock for the second series. Gordon also got himself a love interest in the shape of Claire. The series was pulled midway through it’s second run of episodes with four episodes still to air. Three months later two of the episodes were show but two went unscreened.

A US version, also called Holding The Baby, briefly aired from August-December 1998.
