Carla Langer was the ex-wife of Paul, and mother of Clyde Langer.

Carla's former husband left her for her own sister, Melba, before vanishing completely. She later learned that he had gone to Germany. After Paul ran off, Clyde and Carla moved from Hounslow to 2 Renfrow Street in Ealing.

Clyde's grandmother, more likely Carla's mother than mother-in-law, was an old friend of Mrs Randall, who lived at Lavender Lawns, and told Clyde of strange happenings transpiring there. When Clyde went missing, actually kidnapped by Mr Smith, Carla phoned Maria, who assured her he would be safe. During the 2009 Dalek invasion, she and Clyde were away together.

Clyde said that his mother was unable to attend Sarah Jane Smith's wedding to Peter Dalton as she was attending another wedding at the time.

Carla was one of the many affected by Hetocumtek's curse, causing her to turn on her own son and call the police after him. When Clyde defeated Hetocumtek and the curse was lifted, she embraced Clyde when he returned home.
