Who is Heather?

Wet Dalek Lady. Well, at least that’s what we know her as because a) she looks like she really needs a towel, and b) she materialised into the series 10 trailer shouting Dalek catchphrase “exterminate!”. She’ll be appearing in the first episode of the series, The Pilot – the same episode the old tinpot nemeses of The Doctor will appear.
