Caroline John


Born - 30 October 1940, York, Yorkshire, England
Died - 5 June 2012

Slim-faced, tawny-haired English actress with extensive experience in Shakespearian dramas on stage - but best remembered for her 26-episode stint as Liz Shaw, one of Dr Who's 1970s' assistants in the iconic TV series. Known to friends and family as Carry, the York-born player was on stage as a teenager, making her film debut in Raising a Riot (1955). Movies took second place to TV and the theatre, but there were a few more: The King's Breakfast (1963), A Dandy in Aspic (1968), Assassin (1973), The Razor's Edge (1984), Santa Claus (1985), Link (1986), Breach of the Peace (1994), The Woodlanders (1997) and Love Actually (2003), her last. She married the actor Geoffrey Beevers, who survives her.
