Just Liz came from the writing team which produced Please, Sir!Get Some In! and The Good Life.

John Esmonde and Bob Larbey came up with a series for Thames Television with a woman at its centre. Liz is played by Sandra Payne, fifth wife of film producer Roy Boulting, and formerly appearing in The Newcomers and Shelley.

Liz is a woman alone. Her boyfriend is away in Bahrain for 18 months making money for their marriage and she is left to fend off all those men who feel they can replace him.

All, that is, except Reg – the mother hen-like character played by Rodney Bewes of The Likely Lads – who desperately wants to protect her.
