Izzy was the adoptive daughter of Sandra and Les Sinclair, but preferred to call herself 'Izzy S' (for 'Somebody') because of her uncertain origins. As a seventeen year old sci-fi fan and amateur paranormal investigator living in the town of Stockbridge, she met the wandering Time Lord known as the Doctor (then in his eighth incarnation) through their mutual friend Maxwell Edison and ended up accompanying him on his travels, without telling her adoptive family.
Izzy's alienation was worsened when her mind became trapped in the body of the amphibious alien woman Destrii for a time and she believed that her own body had been disintegrated. After the Doctor managed to restore the two women to normal Izzy finally came to terms with her personal issues and returned to Earth to be reconciled with her adoptive parents. The Doctor returned her to the day she left, so that from their point of view Izzy had never been gone at all. She later set off to travel the world.
- Izzy has also appeared outside comics, in the Big Finish Doctor Who audio story Izzy's Story, voiced by Jemima Rooper.
- Izzy was the Doctor's first openly gay companion, and was aided in coming to terms with her sexuality by the Doctor's friend Fey Truscott-Sade.
Izzy's birthday was 12th October 1979, the date that the first issue of Doctor Who Weekly was published.
