Caroline Catz Reveals There Might Be Another Series Of Doc Martin | This Morning
Catz began acting in the early 1990s, initially playing minor roles. On registering with Equity, she discovered that an actress with the name Caroline Caplan was already registered, so she had to choose a different professional name.
She played opposite Michael Kitchen in a TV movie, The Guilty, that opened in June 1992. In 1994 she took a lead role in the BBC's All Quiet on the Preston Front, which ran for three series. She followed this with a spell in The Bill as Rosie Fox, during which she met Michael Higgs, who later became her husband. Her part in The Bill was the first of four long-term roles in which she played police officers; in The Vice she was a PC, in Murder in Suburbia and DCI Banks she was a Detective Inspector.
Since 2004, Catz has starred in ITV's Doc Martin, where she plays primary school headmistress Louisa Glasson.
Catz has continued to appear in one-off roles, including In Denial of Murder, in which she played real-life murder victim Wendy Sewell, and in an episode of Hotel Babylon. She also appeared in a two-part episode of Single Handed entitled The Stolen Child as Dr Maggie Hunter. Originally shown in Ireland in January 2008, it was broadcast by ITV on 9 August 2009.
From 2012 until 2016, she played Detective Inspector Helen Morton in DCI Banks. In November 2016, it was announced that ITV had axed the show.
In 2014, Catz directed the documentary titled A Message to the World...Whatever Happened to Jesse Hector? Also in 2014, she narrated the BBC's television documentary Ebola – The Search for a Cure.
She co-starred in Déjà Vu, a radio play broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on 4 February 2009.
In November 2008 she played Anna, the puppet maker, in the stage production On Emotion. She has previously appeared in the West End in the Out of Joint/Royal Court Theatre production of Mark Ravenhill's Shopping and Fucking. In 2012 she played Marlene in Caryl Churchill's play Top Girls directed by Max Stafford-Clark.
Catz is married to fellow actor Michael Higgs; the couple met on the set of The Bill. They have a son born in 2001 and a daughter born in 2006.
