"That's not for me to say."
—Dr. Stevens to Andrea and Michonne.[src]

Dr. Stevens (first name unknown) is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is a resident and the doctor of Woodbury.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Dr. Stevens' life prior to or as the outbreak began. It is possible that she lived in or near Woodbury. It is also likely she was a trained doctor.


Season 3

"Walk With Me"

Dr. Stevens assumes as the acting physician for the town of Woodbury, providing medical care to sick and injured citizens. She is seen caring for Andrea, a newcomer to Woodbury, and later talks to Lieutenant Welles with the Governor about the helicopter crash and the location of the National Guard military convoy. When the Governor gives the word, she leaves him alone with the Lieutenant.

"Made to Suffer"

Dr. Stevens treated the Governor at the clinic after he was attacked and stabbed in the eye by Michonne. She remains in the clinic and begins caring for the wounded from the arena and earlier raid.

"The Suicide King"

Dr. Stevens is at the infirmary caring for the wounded, including nine residents who were hurt in the previous night’s raid by Rick’s group. Andrea visits her to check on the wounded and to give Milton a report on the status of the patients.

Post-Prison Assault

Following the failed prison assault in "Welcome to the Tombs", Dr. Stevens' fate is unclear. However, she is most likely dead. It is likely she was among the fleeing Woodbury soldiers massacred by the Governor out on the road as she was not seen with the remaining Woodburians arriving at the prison.[1]


Killed By

Dr. Stevens is among the residents shot to death by the Governor after refusing to return to the Prison to continue fighting.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Dr. Stevens has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of patients (Out of Mercy, Before Reanimation)
  • Numerous counts of zombies
