Drag sensation Tia Kofi meets Cybermen, Shakespeare and a fellow Queen in her Doctor Who: Time Fracture adventure!


Tia Kofi, having been chosen to take part in Operation Time Fracture by an incarnation of the Doctor who wore a fez and bowtie, and was wont to say "Come along, Pond", reports to the UNIT Black Site where the Time Fracture is studied, having dressed up in an outfit inspired by the Doctor's. She is welcomed by Doctor Errol Courtney, who confirms that her name was indeed on the list sent in by the Doctor.

After briefing Kofi on the basics of the Fracture's nature and the Operation's purpose — namely, finding out what it is that is really causing the Fracture on the other side — Doctor Courtney leads Kofi through to the Portal Stabilisation Gateway. Tia Kofi emerges in what she soon realises to be Elizabethan England, in the house of William Shakespeare, who is feeling depressed due to his latest play having flopped. She half-heartedly claims to be a candlestick maker, and sticks around with him for a while, as the Bard seems to find her presence invigorating; he begins to plan out a new play, Romeo and Juliet, with Kofi in mind for the Juliet role.

However, an aftershock fo the Time Fracture transports Kofi out of Shakespeare's home and drops her in the royal court, where she engages a courtier in conversation, with him misinterpreting Tia's self-identification as a "queen" and agreeing to introduce her to Elizabeth I under the misapprehension that she is herself foreign royalty. The two are briefly menaced by a Cyberman transported to the court by another aftershock of the Fracture, but after briefly ducking back into the Gateway, Kofi is able to arrive safely in Elizabeth's throne room. The conversation quickly turns sour, however, with Elizabeth not appreciating Kofi's familiar tone. The capital-Q Queen ended up ordering the queen beheaded, and Kofi takes that as a cue to flee back into the Gateway to resume trying to save the universe.
