        She is a Huon.  The first Huon actually; as a Huon she is time and space and matter.  Each Huon created something and though their energy, which can be used to heal or destroy, may be drained, the only way a Huon can die is to sacrifice itself so another may live.  She can see all timelines except her own.
        She created the "weeping angels."  When she heard what happened to Amy and Rory, she created the leaf that led to Clara Oswin Oswald -- someone for the Doctor to find again (and again) because no one, not even the Doctor, needs ever be alone.
        Except her.  She is the last Huon.  Huons name things -- they know the names of every living being, but they also know the sacredness of a name and do not use this power lightly.  During her time with the 12th Doctor they come across a being whom she can't name.  She calls him a shadow; he (the being) just appears in the TARDIS and says, "The last thing I remember is the beach.  There was a bright light and then I was here."  Her and this shadow fall in love before he disappears.
         It is the 12th Doctor who discovers that she created the leaf that led to Clara.  Eventually the Doctor allows Clara to die; the huon is heartbroken over letting her "child" go. (She is also the woman in the woman in the shop who gave Clara the 11th Doctor's number as the customer service # for the WiFi.) The 13th Doctor gets into trouble, but has run out of regeneration energy, so she convinces him to use her because, unlike a human (e.g. Donna Noble), she can handle the Doctor's knowledge.
        They (in her body) land in the parallel universe (she's Time and Space and Matter, so therefore can) where Rose Tyler and Doctor clone are.  The huon discovers her parallel universe self is the young daughter of Rose and DC.  The huon's name, Mai, is short for Flowdabmai -- "I am Bad Wolf" backwards; she created herself.  Young parallel Flowdabmai, who goes by Flo, creates an angel too, but 1) Mai can't name it, and 2) instead of sending people into the past, it sends people into parallel realities. 
        Mai tries to sacrifice herself to save the Doctor (after having to rescue him from a parallel reality where Flo's angel sent him - long story), but he turns the tables on her.  She disperses what's left of the Doctor's soul giving the final piece to the TARDIS and naming him before sending the TARDIS off.  Mai is left on the beach with Rose and DC when they hear the TARDIS return.  Mai hears the two hearts.  The TARDIS has recreated the Doctor.  Mai turns and stops.  "It's you," she says.  "Of course, 'I was on a beach.  There was a bright light and then I was here.'"  This Doctor was the shadow she had fallen in love with -- and he's ginger!
        Mai and the Doctor adventure through all of time and space....The End.
Mai appears on the TARDIS.  "I'm Flowdabmai.  Just call me Mai."
"Falling in love, being in love, is different than loving someone." - Mai
Mai gets trapped on a pocket universe - courtesy of the Doctor - where life is "ordinary".  She finds herself married to one Doctor (John Smith), she's pregnant (with Clara), she's sister to Rose and 10th Doctor, etc, and Shadow is reading Puck's soliquy on the radio ("If we shadows have offended...").  All the Doctors have beards and all have some version of the name John - Ian, Sean, etc., the 9th Doctor is not there.  Mai begins to forget who she is, but before she is completely lost, there is a knock at the door.  She opens the door and there stands the 9th Doctor, sans beard, saying he received a message from Mai.  Mai remembers who she is, goes with the 9th Doctor, and erases the rescue and the meeting from his memory.
I'd love to see an episode where the Doctor discovers it's teddy bears saving the children (maybe from the angels - teddy bears don't blink)
Somehow the Doctor needs to fly the TARDIS to certain points (from point to point) to get out of trouble but needs a homing device to act as something akin to a lighthouse to jump from point to point.  Doctor (to Mai): "Where are you going?"  Mai: "Oh, out."  Doctor: "Out?  Now?"  Mai: "I'll be your beacon."
Jack Harkness (to Mai): "There's something so...familiar about you.  Like - looking in a mirror."  Later when Mai meets young Flo, she remembers Jack's words.  Mai: "'There's something so familiar about you. Like looking in a mirror.' Doctor, spell my name."  He rambles on about whatever from the mirror Mai put him in because she was tired of having him in her head.  "Spell it!"  Mai writes it (flowdabmai) on the mirror so it reflects the other way (iambadwolf).
Mai: Who in the universe would name their child "I am Bad Wolf" backwords?; Rose: Well, why'd you name yourself that?; M: I didn't name myself.; R: Then who did?; M: Something More (smiles).
By the way, I nominate this guy as the next Doctor: 



 Sans beard.
