There is only one form of life that matters. Dalek life!' The TARDIS has been stolen from Gatwick Airport, and the Doctor and Jamie are hot on its trail. A series of cryptic clues lead them to an antiques shop owned by Edward Waterfield, and there it becomes clear that an elaborate trap has been laid for them - but by whom, and for what purpose? Only a journey back in time to the 1860s will reveal the answer... The Daleks are in search of the Human Factor, something which they believe will help their quest for universal domination. In order to achieve their aim, they need the Doctor's help and the use of his TARDIS. Worried that his old friend may be turning traitor, Jamie discovers that he too is part of the plan - in the course of which he encounters Victoria Waterfield, a young woman who is to play a large part in his and the Doctor's life. The Daleks' plan has far-reaching consequences, leading to conflict and destruction of astonishing proportions. And when the TARDIS arrives on the battlefield planet of Skaro, the scene is set for an encounter between the Doctor and the malevolent Emperor Dalek... Frazer Hines, who plays Jamie in the story, narrates this classic story from 1967.Show more
I've been renewed...without it I couldn't survive.' Before the astonished eyes of his companions Ben and Polly, the Doctor's whole body has apparently been transformed. Now they are confronted by a stranger who claims to be their old friend but how can they know whether to trust him? The TARDIS's arrival on the swamp planet of Vulcan brings its own problems; the Doctor is mistaken for an official come to solve the Earth colony's in-fighting, and soon he and his companions are embroiled in political wranglings. However, a far more serious threat lurks within the colony. The scientist Lesterson has discovered a crashed space capsule, within it a group of inert metallic creatures which the Doctor identifies as Daleks. Refusing to heed the Doctor's warnings, Lesterson supplies power to the Daleks and revives them. The awakened Daleks claim to be faithful servants of humanity but could such a thing ever be possible? By covert means they seek an increasing level of energy, but for what? By the time the Doctor and his friends discover the Daleks' true plan for the colony, it looks as if it might already be too late to stop them... Anneke Wills, who plays Polly in the story, narrates this debut story for the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, first broadcast in 1966 and long since missing from the television archives.Show more
