STORY
The Time Lords send the Doctor, Sarah and Harry to the planet Skaro at a time when the war between Thals and Kaleds in reaching its final stage. The Doctor's mission is to prevent the birth of the dreaded Daleks who evolved out of this war. Hunted by both sides in a war-torn world, the Doctor eventually becomes the prisoner of Davros, the brilliant crippled Kaled scientist. Davros has invented a travel machine to house the creature into which the Kaleds, genetically mutated by centuries of warefare, will eventually evolve. But Davros is obsessed by his own creation and is giving it destructive powers and a ruthless intelligence which were not part of the original design. These travel machines are destined to become the Daleks! The Doctor helps to lead a revolt of Kaled scientists, horrified by what Davros is doing. But Davros in his determination to preserve the Daleks, helps the Thals to destroy his own people with a super-missle. Then he uses the Daleks, now fully operational, first to wipe out the Thal city, then to destroy those remaining Kaleds who oppose him. Some Thals surivive. The Doctor manages to entomb Davros in the fortified bunker which has become his final refuge. Here the Daleks turn on Davros, destroying their creator. The Doctor refuses to destroy the Daleks when he has the chance on the ground that it would be genocide; he says that even from the Daleks a greater good will eventually emerge. Whisked away from Skaro by the Time Lords, the travellers disappear. The Doctor and his companions travel to Skaro and back using a Time Ring provided by the Time Lords.
