Davina McCall was a television presenter.


By December 2023, Davina was the host of a television series that aimed to reunite "foundlings" with their families, by using DNA samples to search for an individual's genetic heritage against a database.

On 1 December 2023, Davina filmed a segment of the show with Ruby Sunday, who had been abandoned at the church on Ruby Road in 2004, but the production was cut short after a heavy studio light nearly fell on Ruby and an electrical plug ricocheted against the back of Davina's head, as the Goblins began to weave bad luck into Ruby's life.

After the interview, Davina was plagued by bad luck herself, being hit, thrown, bumped, knocked off a boat on dry land, and trampled by a moose, resulting in a broken arm and a leg, restricting her to the use of a wheelchair by 24 December. According to the Fifteenth Doctor, the Goblins had decided to bedevil Davina with such bad luck for "fun".

On Christmas Eve, Davina called Ruby to inform her that the DNA search had been in vain as there were no matches, and to ask her if she had been experiencing bad luck as well. The telephone call was cut short when a Goblin attempted to make a Christmas tree fall on her, but she was saved by the Doctor, who had travelled back in time from later that day to save her.
