Following acting and elocution lessons, she started doing commercials and walk-on work, and her first proper role was in the play "Women of the Streets." She continued working in theatre, film (including The Day of the Triffids (1963)) and television (including Emergency-Ward 10 (1957), Moonstrike (1963), Compact (1962) and Z Cars (1962)). Aftering leaving Doctor Who (1963), Carole worked mainly in the theatre. Her second daughter, Tara, was born in 1977.

She subsequently became very ill, and has acted only occasionally since - though she did reprise her role as Susan in the twentieth-anniversary story The Five Doctors (1983). She is currently teaching voice, presentation skills and dialogue coaching to politicians, businessmen, after dinner speakers and actors.
