Reuben Shaw was the husband of Dame Emily Shaw and the father of Liz and Lucy. Like Emily, he referred to Liz as "Elizabeth" when he was feeling tetchy. (PROSE: The Scales of Injustice)

He was apparently a poor cook, Emily joking that she had signed the Official Secrets Act more times than Reuben had ruined hot dinners. After she received a letter from the Apocalypse Clock, she called Reuben and Lucy to say goodbye "in [her] own way", leaving the actual explanation to Liz. (AUDIO: The Last Post)

He died in 1995, after which Liz took some time away from P.R.O.B.E. to mourn him. (HOMEVID: The Devil of Winterborne) She continued to visit his grave months after. (HOMEVID: Ghosts of Winterborne)
