Destiny of the Daleks
“The Dalek fleet will be wiped from the heavens and nothing will stand in the way of our conquest of the galaxy…”
Accompanied by the newly regenerated Romana, The Doctor lands on a mystery planet intrigued by the evidence of drilling taking place there, deep underground.
The discoveries he makes are chilling. For the planet is Skaro and the Daleks are in charge of the operation. But just what are his old enemies searching for? And why?
Perhaps the answers lie with the Movellans, a beautiful humanoid race led by Commander Sharrel. They are waging a war of their own with the Daleks and the situation is now at a stalemate. Should The Doctor tip the balance of power to aid the Daleks’ ultimate destruction? Or are their intentions no less sinister than the Daleks’ themselves?
Suddenly The Doctor finds himself enmeshed in a deadly battle which could result in the destruction of the universe itself as, once more, he summons the strength to face an all too familiar, timelessly evil adversary…
