Carrie Vu is one of the Doctor's companions.
Carrie works in film & TV production in Burbank, CA. In October 2019, she matched with Travis on the dating app Matchmaker. However, their matching was part of a plot to eliminate unknowable demographics by killing them. Carrie worked with Travis and the Doctor to bring down Matchmaker, and joined the TARDIS shortly afterward. (Swipe Right)
Personality and Traits
Like Travis, Carrie is a fan of pop culture - she is a huge Star Wars fan, having seen all of the movies (except for The Rise of Skywalker, which had not yet been released at the time she joined the TARDIS). In her photo on her Matchmaker bio, she is seen wearing a Boba Fett body suit.
Carrie keeps a fanny pack on her person which contains a flashlight, a small first aid kit, and a Mr. Huffle stress toy.
Carrie first appeared in Swipe Right, and has appeared in every episode since.
Behind the Scenes
- Carrie is likely named after Star Wars actor Carrie Fisher.
- Though not explicitly mentioned by name, it is suggested that Carrie works on the TV series The Mandalorian as a personal assistance to the Child (a.k.a. Baby Yoda).
- Kate's appearance on the show initially billed her as a guest player. Her character joined the cast permanently at the end of that adventure.
