|Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor|
In the distant past, the land that would be India played host to a war between ancient aliens, whose cross-temporal battles contributed to the country's rich myths and legends. Kali, oldest and deadliest of these creatures, was thought defeated long, long ago; her body scattered throughout time to prevent her return. But her psychic essence could not be killed... nor her millennia-long quest for vengeance.
Now, in the 23rd Century, she is on the brink of resurrection. And with India at the forefront of human spaceflight, it's not only Earth that falls to her predations if she succeeds – but the whole cosmos!

- Twelfth Doctor
- Clara Oswald
- Rani Jhulka
- Tiger Maratha
- Priyanka Maratha
- Leonardo da Vinci
- Fourth Doctor
- Tiger Maratha previously met, and briefly travelled with, the Doctor in his fourth incarnation.
- An image of Danny Pink appears on one panel; to date, it is his only appearance in a Titan comic story.
- Priyanka's sexuality appears to be lesbian/ bisexual as she is holding hands with Rani.
- Clara appears to be borrowing a shirt from Priyanka at the end of the story, as Kali's top was too big for her; immediately after Clara changes back, the Doctor lends her his coat to cover herself. Though it appears Clara kept Kali's trousers until she can get to the TARDIS wardrobe.
- Kali was renamed Okti, and the story therefore renamed "The Swords of Okti", in the UK trade paperback, despite Doctor Who Comic running the story unchanged.
