Liza Goddard is an English television and stage actress. She made early television appearances in Australia, including episode 100 of Homicide (The Traveller, 1966), and the ABC drama play Romanoff & Juliet (1967), and a brief (non-speaking, non-credited) appearance in the feature film They're a Weird Mob (1966). However, she is best remembered in Australia for her role as Clarissa 'Clancy' Merrick in Skippy the Bush Kangaroo. After returning to the UK in 1969 as an adult, she appeared as Victoria in Take Three Girls (1969), and then its sequel Take Three Women (1982). She also had a supporting role in the 1972 movie Ooh… You Are Awful. Her career breakthrough was as April in The Brothers (1972–76). She appeared as Jocelyn in National Pelmet, the Series 2 opener of critically acclaimed drama Minder.
A comedy role alongside Donal Donnelly in Yes, Honestly (1976-77), by Terence Brady and Charlotte Bingham followed, as did a role, with Christopher Biggins, in an unsuccessful BBC1 sitcom Watch This Space (1980), by Ronald Chesney and Ronald Wolfe. This was followed by Pig in the Middle (1980-83) with Joanna Van Gyseghem. Goddard was one of the 'explorers' who were evaporated in a (now missing) episode of the BBC science fiction quiz programme The Adventure Game (1980), played a space pirate in the Doctor Who story Terminus (1983), and appeared in Roll Over Beethoven (1985). Goddard appeared in Woof!, a Children's ITV programme first broadcast in 1989. This long-running series told the adventures of a schoolboy who turned into a dog at any given time; his efforts to conceal his secret from his parents were aided by his teacher Mrs Jessop, played by Goddard. Her third husband, producer and director David Cobham, created this series. She had earlier appeared in the TV adaptation of Brendon Chase, also produced and directed by Cobham.
For many years, she was also the female team leader on long-running quiz/panel show Give Us a Clue, replacing Una Stubbs in the role.
She appeared as Laurel Manasotti, who had an affair with Jimmy Mulville's character Donald, in the ITV sitcom That's Love.
She later had a recurring role as Philippa Vale in Bergerac and alongside Dawn French and Catherine Tate in Wild West (2002). In 2007 she appeared in the Midsomer Murders episode A Picture of Innocence, reuniting her with Bergerac star John Nettles
