A high ranking official in the UNified Intelligence Taskforce, Tia Karim is based in U.N.I.T Base five underneath Mount Snowdon.
She travelled to Bannerman Road to deliver the sad news of
the death of the Doctor to Sarah Jane and have her attend the funeral of the
last Time Lord.
But Karim is in league with the rogue Shansheeth of
the Fifteenth Funeral Fleet who plan to steal the TARDIS for their own crusade
to rid the galaxy of death. She has her own, personal and devastating reasons
for this alliance, but could well be her undoing.
