Phoebe's father Reginald is a shrewd businessman, and a regular (and usually unwitting) financier of James' global adventures. A self-made millionaire, he provides himself and Phoebe with everything money can buy - not least a raft of luxury cruisers and private jets. His fondness for profit is tempered by generosity, and he always enjoys playing the genial host. In addition to his connections in banking and the military, he has a keen interest in geology, funding experimental projects in areas such as seismology and polar research. Only dimly aware of the scrapes his daughter and her friends get into, Mr Farragut tends not to involve himself in their escapades. When he does get caught in the fray, he invariably regrets it.
Although he's regularly mentioned, Phoebe's dad is only known to appear in two episodes - Never Give a Villain a Fair Shake and The Thing in the Ice. His first name is revealed in Rubies Aren't Forever, although he doesn't appear in it. His near-death experience in 'Never Give a Villain...' has clearly aged him prematurely - while his hair's grey in that episode, it's turned white by 'The Thing in the Ice'. Or maybe that's just the Antarctic air.
