Miss Jones and Son was a comedy series first broadcast on ITV in 1977. It starred Paula Wilcox, Christopher Beeny, Charlotte Mitchell and Norman Bird. It was written by Richard Waring and produced and directed by Peter Frazer-Jones.


The series depicted the life of Elizabeth Jones (Paula Wilcox), a young woman coming to terms with the responsibility of looking after her baby, Rolland 'Rollie' Jones (full name: Rolland Desmond Geoffrey Alan Jones), alone. Emotional support came in the form of next-door-neighbour and friend Geoffrey (Christopher Beeny). Difficulties included the reproaches of her parents (played by Charlotte Mitchell and Norman Bird), a difficult social life, and a reduced income.[1]

A US made version was Miss Winslow and Son.[2]
