The Doctor first encountered the Daleks on the radiation-soaked planet of Skaro, waging war with the peaceful Thals. The Daleks were the mangled and mutated remains of the Kaled people, placed in metal war machines by the Kaled’s chief scientist Davros.

Pursuing the Doctor across space and time, the Daleks invaded the Earth, developed the Reality Bomb and tried to imprison the Doctor in the Pandorica. They fought the Time Lords in The Last Great Time War – a conflict so powerful and destructive that the universe was said to convulse.

Of course, just like the Time Lords, the Daleks escaped too and the naughty little tanks teamed-up with their creator Davros in a bid to use the Doctor's regenerative powers to enhance their race.

  • You would make a good Dalek.

  • Pity? I have no understanding of the word.

  • We will prepare, we will grow stronger. When the time is right we will emerge and take our rightful place as the supreme power of the universe!

  • You will be exterminated!
