Zakia Akhtar lived in 107 Baker Street with her sister, Aisha.

Zakia worked as a cashier at her cousin Sanjit’s convenience store on Baker Street. (Wild Animals) She and Aisha had frequent arguments with Ron Winters and Tony Clare which settled down before briefly being reignited by the Pandora Bolt. After the Eighth Doctor, Liv Chenka and Helen Sinclair moved in, Zakia lent Helen her Oyster card. (Lost Property)

Zakia and Aisha helped get Liv a job at Sanjit’s shop and had dinner with Liv and Helen. Zakia and Helen found that Liv and Sanjit had been shot by a robber and, in hospital, learnt that Sanjit had died. Zakia seemed to blame Liv after hearing The Doctor and Helen say that she had most likely fought back against the robber. (Wild Animals)

Zakia was left unemployed after her family sold Sanjit’s shop and tried to find employment elsewhere, telling Aisha that she would go to the Jobcentre. The sisters were cold to Liv when she asked them if they had experienced any strange phenomena with their television, after which it turned itself on. (Must-See TV)

The Akhtar sisters both went to Wakefield’s for the house meal courtesy of the Doctor and left with Ron and Tony after Bourakai and Teeja attacked. (Divine Intervention)

When a supposed bomb was discovered under Baker Street, The Doctor took Zakia and Aisha back to 1941 to learn of their heritage in the form of their grandmother Nisha Bashir and met their grandfather Adi Akhtar. When Nisha was captured by Nazis, Zakia accompanied The Doctoron a mission to rescue her, despite Aisha’s protests. The Doctor tasked her with destroying the power station that had initially been Nisha’s mission while he went and rescued her, picking Zakia up after she had succeeded. Reuniting with Aisha in the TARDIS, Aisha revealed to her that she was in fact her mother and Nisha was her great-grandmother, having given birth to her young and pretended to be her sibling. Zakia was shocked but understood. (Baker Street Irregulars
