Planet of the Daleks
Planet of the Daleks is the fourth serial of the tenth season of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, first broadcast in six weekly parts on BBC1 from 7 April to 12 May 1973. Continuing from the events of the serial Frontier in Space, the story involves a small team of Daleks plotting to revive an army of Daleks which are being kept in suspended animation on the planet Spiridon; the Doctor has been wounded after being shot by the Master on the Ogron planet. Jo Grant manages to help the Doctor into the TARDIS, where he uses the telepathic circuits to send a message to the Time Lords before he collapses. Delirious, he falls into a coma. Jo dictates into the TARDIS log, a portable recording device, that she has seen this healing state before, that the TARDIS is moving, being controlled remotely by the Time Lords; when the TARDIS comes to a stop, Jo activates the external scanners to see some plants outside block the viewer by spraying a thick sap-like liquid at it. With the Doctor still catatonic, Jo leaves the ship to explore the surrounding jungle.
The plants spray sap on her as she walks by, a bit of it gets on her hand. As Jo explores, the TARDIS is being covered by plant sap, hardening into a shell around it; when the Doctor awakens, he finds himself sealed in and the oxygen in the TARDIS cabin being used up. Activating the emergency oxygen supply, he discovers the tanks empty, starts to suffocate from lack of air. Jo, in the meantime, discovers a spacecraft in the jungle with a dead pilot. Shortly after three blonde haired humanoids enter the spacecraft identifying themselves as Taron and Codal, they offer help but are cautious as there is an apparent danger outside. Taron and his men find the TARDIS and chip the hardened sap from its doors, managing to drag a nearly asphyxiated Doctor out into the open air; the Doctor notes that he finds them familiar. When the men explain that they are from the planet Skaro, the Doctor recognises that they are Thals and tells them he was on Skaro many years ago with his three companions, Susan and Barbara.
Meanwhile Jo has fallen unconcious as a result of the plant sap and is removed from the spacecraft by a Spiridon, an invisible humanoid lifeform. Whilst en-route to the Thal spacecraft the Doctor and the Thals encounter an disabled Dalek that has the power of invisibility. After examining it they return to the Thal spacecraft to discover the Daleks have found it; the Doctor still believing that Jo is on board reveals himself to the Daleks only to be disabled and the spacecraft destroyed anyway. The Doctor is taken to the Dalek base for interrogation and put in the same cell as the captured Codal; the Doctor tries to use his sonic screwdriver to to no avail. He and Codal conceive of modifying the components of the TARDIS log to emit a radio frequency that will jam Dalek control impulses. Meanwhile, Jo is being cared for by the Spiridon, his name is Wester, he is one of a group of his people who are trying to fight back against the Daleks. He cures her of her fungal infection with a salve, tells Jo that the Doctor and Codal have been captured and taken to the Dalek base.
Jo is determined to try to free them though Wester says that if the Daleks use them for their experiments, they are better off dead. The group flees down the corridors with the Daleks pursuing them, they get away, making their way back to the cooling chamber. Once there, the Doctor asks Rebec and Taron to barricade the entrance while he finds a way to keep the Dalek army from reviving, he and Codal decide to set an explosive in the wall of the chamber containing the Dalek army, coming to life. In the meantime, the Dalek Supreme, a member of the Dalek Supreme Council, has arrived in a spaceship, to oversee the final stages of the operation, exterminates the Section Leader for its incompetence. Jo and Latep arrive at the cooling chamber and use their bomb to destroy a squad of Daleks before joining the others; as another patrol comes through, the bomb set in the chamber wall explodes. Molten ice rushes out to flood the chamber; the group escapes over a ramp that leads to the surface while the rest of the Daleks abandon the base, filling with molten ice.
The group makes its way to the Dalek Supreme's spacecraft. The Doctor make war sound like an adventure; the Thals were a peaceful people and he would hate to see them change. Taron and Rebec promise and the Thals enter the spacecraft and leave for Skaro; the Doctor and Jo run back to the TARDIS, pursued by the other Daleks. They dematerialise just as the Daleks open fire; the Dalek Supreme orders operations to recover the invasion force and contact the Dalek High Council for a rescue ship. The Daleks have been delayed, but will never be defeated.... The story was commissioned as Planet of the Daleks, but during production it changed to Destination: Daleks. Episodes 2 & 4 do not feature a reprise of the previous episode's cliffhanger ending, while the reprises in Episodes 3 and 5 are re-performances. Though this latter technique was commonplace in 1960s episodes, by this time in the programme's history it was an approach never used; the Dalek Supreme in this story was a modified prop from the film Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.

The Daleks are a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants principally portrayed in the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who. The Daleks were conceived by science-fiction writer Terry Nation and first appeared in the 1963 Doctor Who serial The Daleks, in the shells designed by Raymond Cusick. Drawing inspiration from the Nazis, Nation portrayed the Daleks as violent and pitiless cyborg aliens, who demand total conformity to their will, who are bent on the conquest of the universe and the extermination of what they see as inferior races. In the programme's narrative the Daleks were engineered by the scientist Davros during the final years of a thousand-year war between his people, the Kaleds, their enemies the Thals. With some Kaleds badly mutated and damaged by nuclear war, Davros genetically modified the Kaleds and integrated them with a tank-like robotic shell, removing their every emotion apart from hate, his creations soon came to view themselves as the supreme race in the universe, intent on purging the universe of all non-Dalek life.
Collectively they are the greatest enemies of Doctor Who's protagonist, the Time Lord known as "the Doctor". In the programme's run the Daleks acquired time travel technology and engaged the Time Lords in a brutal Time War affecting most of the universe, with battles taking place across the whole of history; the Daleks are the show's most popular villains and their returns to the series over the decades have gained media attention. Their frequent order to "Exterminate!" has become common usage. The Daleks were designed by the BBC designer Raymond Cusick, they were introduced in December 1963 in the second Doctor Who serial, colloquially known as The Daleks. They became an immediate and huge hit with viewers, featuring in many subsequent serials and, in the 1960s, two films, they have become as synonymous with Doctor Who as the Doctor himself, their behaviour and catchphrases are now part of British popular culture. "Hiding behind the sofa whenever the Daleks appear" has been cited as an element of British cultural identity.
In 1999 a Dalek photographed by Lord Snowdon appeared on a postage stamp celebrating British popular culture. In 2010, readers of science fiction magazine SFX voted the Dalek as the all-time greatest monster, beating competition including Japanese movie monster Godzilla and J. R. R. Tolkien's Gollum, of The Lord of the Rings; as early as one year after first appearing on Doctor Who, the Daleks had become popular enough to be recognized by non-viewers. In December 1964 editorial cartoonist Leslie Gilbert Illingworth published a cartoon in the Daily Mail captioned "THE DEGAULLEK", caricaturing French President Charles de Gaulle arriving at a NATO meeting as a Dalek with de Gaulle's prominent nose; the word "Dalek" has entered major dictionaries, including the Oxford English Dictionary, which defines "Dalek" as "a type of robot appearing in'Dr. Who', a B. B. C. Television science-fiction programme. English-speakers sometimes use the term metaphorically to describe people authority figures, who act like robots unable to break from their programming.
For example, John Birt, the Director-General of the BBC from 1992 to 2000, was called a "croak-voiced Dalek" by playwright Dennis Potter in the MacTaggart Lecture at the 1993 Edinburgh Television Festival. Externally Daleks resemble human-sized pepper pots with a single mechanical eyestalk mounted on a rotating dome, a gun mount containing an energy weapon resembling an egg whisk, a telescopic manipulator arm tipped by an appendage resembling a sink plunger. Daleks have been known to use their plungers to interface with technology, crush a man's skull by suction, measure the intelligence of a subject, extract information from a man's mind. Dalek casings are made of a bonded polycarbide material called "dalekanium" by a member of the human resistance in The Dalek Invasion of Earth and by the Cult of Skaro in "Daleks in Manhattan"; the lower half of a Dalek's shell is covered with hemispherical protrusions, or "Dalek bumps", which are shown in the episode "Dalek" to be spheres embedded in the casing.
Both the BBC-licensed Dalek Book and The Doctor Who Technical Manual describe these items as being part of a sensory array, while in the 2005 series episode "Dalek" they are integral to a Dalek's self-destruct mechanism. Their armour has a forcefield that evaporates most resists most types of energy weapons; the forcefield seems to be concentrated around the Dalek's midsection, as ineffective firepower can be concentrated on the eyestalk to blind a Dalek. Daleks have a limited visual field, with no peripheral sight at all, are easy to hide from in exposed places, their own energy weapons are capable of destroying them. Their weapons fire a beam that has electrical tendencies, is capable of propagating through water, may be a form of plasma or electrolaser; the eyepiece is a Dalek's most vulnerable spot. Russell T Davies subverted the catchphrase in his 2008 episode "The Stolen Earth", in which a Dalek vaporises a paintball that has blocked its vision while proclaiming "My vision is not impaired!"
The creature inside the mechanical casing is soft and repulsive in appearance, vicious in temperament. The first-ever glimpse of a Dalek mutant, in The Daleks, was a claw peeking out from under a Thal cloak after it had been removed from its casing; the mutants' actual appearance has va
Terence Joseph Nation was a Welsh television writer and novelist. Nation first made his name as a comedy writer before becoming a prolific writer for drama, working on many of the most popular British series of the 1960s and 1970s, he made a significant contribution to the long-running BBC science-fiction series Doctor Who from its outset, creating the villainous Daleks which established its early popularity and devising the recurring character of Davros. Nation was the creator of two series for the BBC, Survivors and Blake's 7. Born in Llandaff, Nation worked in comedy, entering the industry in 1955 after a incident in which Spike Milligan bought a sketch that he had written because he thought that Nation appeared hungry. During the 1950s, Nation worked with John Junkin and Johnny Speight for the writers' agency Associated London Scripts, where he collaborated on hundreds of radio plays for comedians such as Terry Scott, Eric Sykes, Harry Worth and Frankie Howerd, his career break came in 1962, when he was commissioned to write material for Tony Hancock – first for Hancock's unsuccessful series for Associated Television broadcast on ITV in 1963, his stage show.
Although Nation accompanied Hancock as his chief screenwriter on tour in 1963, Hancock would neglect Nation's scripts in favour of recycling his old material. Following an argument over this, Hancock fired Nation. Prior his association with Hancock, Nation had declined an offer from scriptwriter David Whitaker to write for a new science-fiction programme, entering production at the BBC. Now unemployed, with a young family to support, Nation contacted Whitaker and accepted the offer, writing the second Doctor Who serial, The Daleks; the serial introduced the eponymous extraterrestrial villains that would become the series' most popular and enduring monsters, resulted in a major merchandising success for the BBC. Nation contributed further scripts to Doctor Who. In 1965, Nation and Dennis Spooner co-wrote the 12-part serial The Daleks' Master Plan, after which Nation, who still held the copyright to the Daleks, attempted to launch a Dalek spin-off TV series in the United States. Various other Dalek tie-in material appeared, including comic strips in the children's weekly TV Century 21 and annuals.
Between 1966 and 1972, appearances by the Daleks in Doctor Who became less frequent and were written for the series by other authors. In 1973, following an eight-year absence from scriptwriting for the series, Nation returned to writing for the Daleks on Doctor Who with the Third Doctor serial Planet of the Daleks. In 1998, readers of Doctor Who Magazine voted Nation's 1975 serial Genesis of the Daleks the greatest Doctor Who story of all time. In the story, Nation introduced the character of Davros, the creator of the Daleks, who went on to appear in further storylines. Nation wrote two non-Dalek scripts for Doctor Who, The Keys of Marinus in 1964, which introduced the Voord and The Android Invasion in 1975, which introduced the Kraal. During this time, Nation wrote scripts for series such as The Avengers, The Baron, The Champions, Department S, The Persuaders! and The Saint. Nation's work on Doctor Who was the subject of the documentary Terror Nation, a special feature on the BBC DVD release of the serial Destiny of the Daleks.
Having returned to writing for Doctor Who, the BBC commissioned Nation to create a new science-fiction drama series. First broadcast in 1975, Survivors is the post-apocalyptic story of the last humans on Earth after the world's population has been devastated by plague. Although the series was well received, Nation's creative vision conflicted with that of producer Terence Dudley, the final two seasons were produced without Nation's involvement. Meanwhile, screenwriter Brian Clemens claimed that he had related the concept for Survivors to Nation in the late 1960s, having registered it with the Writers' Guild of Great Britain in 1965. Although the case was brought before the High Court, both sides withdrew from the proceedings after their legal costs mounted; the production of Nation's next BBC creation, experienced fewer problems. This series follows a group of criminals and political prisoners who are on the run from the evil "Terran Federation", piloting a stolen spaceship of unknown origin.
Blake's 7 ran for four series from 1978 to 1981. Although Nation scripted the whole of the first season of Blake's 7, his creative influence subsequently declined in the following two seasons despite writing some key episodes, as script editor Chris Boucher exerted a greater influence on those seasons. Nation didn't write any episodes in the fourth season of Blake's 7. In the 1980s, Nation attempted, without success, to secure funding for a fifth season of Blake's 7. During the 1970s, Nation wrote a children's novel for his daughter Rebecca titled Rebecca's World: Journey to the Forbidden Planet, as well as a novel based on Survivors. In 1980, Nation moved to Los Angeles, where he developed programme ideas and worked for various production studios. Little of his work from this time was as successful as that of his earlier period in Britain, he wrote scripts for A Fine Romance. Nation suffered from declining health in his final years, died from emphysema in Los Angeles on 9 March 1997, aged 66.
Shortly before his death, he had been collaborating with actor Paul Darrow
Dr. Who and the Daleks
Dr. Who and the Daleks is a 1965 British science fiction film directed by Gordon Flemyng and written by Milton Subotsky, the first of two films based on the British science-fiction television series Doctor Who, it stars Peter Cushing as Dr. Who, Roberta Tovey as Susan, Jennie Linden as Barbara, Roy Castle as Ian, it was followed by Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A. D.. The story is based on the Doctor Who television serial The Daleks, produced by the BBC. Filmed in Technicolor, it is the first Doctor Who story to be made in colour and in a widescreen format; the film was not intended to form part of the ongoing story-lines of the television series. Elements from the programme are used, such as various characters, the Daleks and a police box time machine, albeit in re-imagined forms. Dr. Who, his granddaughters Susan and Barbara, Barbara's boyfriend Ian are accidentally transported to another planet by Dr. Who's latest invention, a time and space machine called Tardis. While exploring, the travellers see a city in the distance.
They find a small container of drugs which they take aboard Tardis. Wishing to investigate further, Dr. Who fakes a leak in a fluid link, a vital component of Tardis, to ensure that the group will go to the city to search for the mercury needed to refill the component. Once in the city they are captured by cyborg creatures which refer to themselves as "Daleks", who seize the fluid link for examination. Dr. Who realises that the group have contracted radiation sickness, that the drugs they discovered earlier may be their only hope of survival. While covertly observing the captives, the Daleks discuss their own plight, they are trapped inside their metal casings, within the city, by the radiation. They wish to leave so that they can claim the planet for themselves. Hearing the captives discussing the drugs, the Daleks make a proposal to them. If the humans bring the drugs they found to them, they will allow them enough to treat themselves. Susan goes. Reaching Tardis Susan collects the drugs and encounters Alydon, leader of the Thals, a species that fought the Daleks in an atomic war centuries previously.
Alydon gives Susan a second container of anti-radiation drugs to use if the Daleks fail to keep their promise. When Susan returns the Daleks discover the second drug supply, but allow the humans to treat themselves with it. Susan explains to her companions that, according to Alydon, the Thal crops have failed and they have come to the Dalek city, hoping to trade the anti-radiation drug formula for food. Again overhearing this conversation, the Daleks decide that they don’t need the Thals now that they have a sample of the drug, they get Susan to write a letter which they will leave for the Thals, stating that they will provide food, to be collected from the city, as an act of friendship. When Susan finishes the letter, the Daleks reveal that they plan to kill all of the Thals when they arrive; when a Dalek enters their cell the travellers manage to disable it. Once free, they are able to warn the Thals who are entering the city, escape with them into the jungle; the Daleks test the Thal anti-radiation drug but find that it causes disastrous side effects.
Thwarted, they decide to detonate a neutron bomb to increase the planet’s radiation to a level which the Thals cannot survive. Back at the Thal camp, Dr. Who realises that the travellers are trapped on the planet as the Daleks still have the fluid link, he will need the Thals’ help to recover it, he urges Alydon to fight the Daleks to save his species but he refuses, insisting that the Thals are now peaceful. In response, Dr. Who pretends to order Ian to take a Thal woman to the Daleks in exchange for the confiscated component. Horrified, Alydon attacks Ian realises that the Thals can fight for things they care about. Alydon, Dr. Who and Susan lead the Thals in an attack on the city, but the Daleks repel the assault and Dr. Who and Susan are recaptured. Meanwhile Ian, Barbara and a small group of Thals infiltrate the Dalek city from the rear. Once inside they join the rest of the Thals, who have mounted a frontal assault to rescue Dr. Who and Susan; the Thals and humans enter the control room, where the Daleks have started the bomb countdown.
During the ensuing struggle the Daleks inadvertently destroy their main control console, which kills them by cutting their power and stops the bomb detonation. Back in the jungle, with the fluid link recovered, the travellers depart in Tardis to return home. Amicus bought an option to make the story and two sequels from Terry Nation and the BBC for £500. Principal photography took six weeks; the film was produced on a budget of £180,000. Although the planet on which the action takes place is not named in the film, it is retroactively identified as Skaro in the sequel, matching the name given in the television series; the actor Barrie Ingham discussed the production in an interview in Australia in 1976 for the Doctor Who fanzine Zerinza. In 1995, a documentary about the two Dalek films, was released on video, it revealed details about the productions, spin-offs, publicity campaigns. It was included as an extra in many of the home media video releases of the two Dalek films; the Daleks were redesigned for the film.
They had larger base sections, which made them taller and more imposing than the TV Daleks, which were only about five feet high. They had large, red dome lights and some were fitted with a two-jawed mechanical claw instead of a plunger, they had more colourful paint schemes. Standard Daleks had blue domes, skirt balls and fenders, gold collars. A Dalek leader was painted predominantly black and a s
