! The TARDIS is dragged down a time corridor, forcing the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough to materialize in a disused part of London in 1984.
The corridor links Earth with a battle cruiser in the future that contains the Doctor's oldest enemy - the Daleks. Having lost the war with the Movellans, only one person can now help the evil race. With shocking consequences for the Doctor, it is time for the Daleks to resurrect their creator Davros.

In an impressive opening sequence, two 'fake' policemen wipe out an group of escaping slaves.
Somewhat daft-looking 'Dalek' headgear is worn by Lytton and his troops.
There is another sequence of clips from past stories, as the Doctor's brain waves are drained by the Daleks' replication equipment in Part Two. This features all the past Doctors and companions bar Leela.
Rodney Bewes, well known as one of The Likely Lads in the BBC sitcom and its sequel, Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?, plays Stien.
Rula Lenska, of Thames TV's Rock Follies fame, plays Styles - a rare example of a relatively major character in a story who never gets to meet the Doctor.
Chloe Ashcroft, better known as a presenter of the BBC's pre-school children's programme Play School, appears here as Professor Laird.
Les Grantham plays Kiston, an engineer taken over by Davros. Grantham went on to star, under his full name Leslie Grantham, as 'Dirty' Den Watts in the BBC soap opera EastEnders.
