Karvanista

Karvanista, a creative from a new race to the Doctor Who fandom (unless you count Wookies),  is someone the Doctor is searching for at the start of Series 13.

The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker)

There are a few pix of The Doctor on her own but no indication of her state of mind given the revelations of the last series.
