When men reach the age of 50, they generally go a bit odd. Martin Goodman is definitely a bit odd. Fond of not wearing a top inside - or outside - the house, dad is a true one-off.
He likes drinking ketchup straight from the bottle, and has been known to snaffle the odd piece of toast straight from the bin. Dad is hard-of-hearing and wears a hearing aid, and definitely uses his deafness to get out of scrapes with Mum.
Whenever dad hurts himself he can be heard shouting the phrase, 'Sh*t on it!'.
Dad is played by Paul Ritter.
