Order of the Daleks
Colin Baker (The Doctor), Miranda Raison (Constance Clarke), Nicholas Briggs (Tanapal/Daleks Voices), John Savident (Pendle), Olivia Hallinan (Asta), Robbie Stevens (Boswyck/Raspak), Sam Fletche (Rosco/Gabber), Joseph Kloska (Habrild).
In the Galactic Census, idyllic Strellin is recorded as a Grade Three planet – its inhabitants possessing neither advanced technology, nor knowledge of other worlds. Accordingly, Strellin is protected: landings by off-worlders are strictly prohibited. Unless, of course, those off-worlders are officials of the Galactic Census itself, come to investigate the origin of a mysterious sub-space signal – a signal no native of Strellin should be able to send…
Breaking all local by-laws, the time-travelling Doctor and his companion L/Wren Mrs Constance Clarke (AWOL) have only just landed on Strellin, too. But they and the Census officials aren’t the only off-worlders to have come here. Inside a nearby monastery, the monks of the reclusive Brotherhood of the Black Petal are guarding a strange and terrible secret. Something might bring disaster not just to Strellin, but to every civilised world in the galaxy!

Order of the Daleks story was recorded on 13 and 14 April 2016.
The stained glass Dalek on the cover was designed by Chris Thompson.
A trailer for part one was released.
This story takes place contemporaneously with the Dalek invasion of Kantra which, based on Destiny of the Daleks, if that takes place around the time of the Dalek-Movellan War, then this story takes place somewhere circa 4949, as the war was dated by Neverland.
The Doctor notes the absence of terraforming machines on Strellin. (Shield of the Jötunn)
The injured Daleks include some of the Emperor’s Personal Guard. (The Evil of the Daleks, The Partings of the Ways)
Before they crash-landed on Strellin, the Daleks were involved in the invasion of Kantra. (Destiny of the Daleks)
During his fourth incarnation, The Doctor previously visited another Grade 3 planet, namely Ribos. (The Ribos Operation)
