The Wire's species. Other unnamed species with a known individual have been given similar treatment.

Talk about it here.

A species once existed on the planet Hermethica. The Wire was a member of this species. (TV: The Idiot's Lantern)


According to the Wire, she was sentenced to death by her people and eventually executed. However, she became a being of pure energy, and escaped via a mobile communications device, and fled across the universe to Earth in 1953 where she became trapped in a television set. (TV: The Idiot's Lantern)


The true form of the Wire or her species is unknown, since she was using the image of a BBC continuity announcer that was on the television when she possessed it.
