In his timemachine the TARDIS (Time And RElative Dimensions In Space), Doctor Who (Christopher Eccleston) & his travelling companion Rose (Billie Piper) land in Utah 2012, in an underground museum owned by millionair Van Stratten (Corey Johnson), who as a hobby collects alien relics that have fallen from the skies, but were hidden away by the gouvernment or whoever else in an attempt to hush everything up (among other things the collection features the head of a Cyberman, the Doctor's foes from the old series, which is charmingly out of place here).

But the museum also features one life specimen, a Dalek (voiced by Nicholas Briggs) - for all who are not familiar with the Daleks, these are essentially robotic beings looking like hovering tincans, but with (living) mutants inside.

Despite continuous torture though, the Dalek has so far not spoken a word or shown a sign of intelligence, only when confronted with the Doctor, he starts talking - since the Doctor is the arch-enemy of the Daleks, & in the Time Wars, it seems, the Daleks & the Timelords, the Doctor's race, have annihilated one another ... except for this Dalkek & the Doctor. The Doctor thus behaves rather hostile against the Dalek (& vice versa), who is essentially nothing more than a simpkle soldier waiting for orders (which will never come), only Rose shows compassion towards that chained up being, even touching it ... but somehow Rose's touch gives the Dalek some of her DNA & in consequence (?) enough power to break its chains & wreak havoc in Van Stratten's underground museum & kills most of his guards, while Rose & her new scientist-friend Adam Mitchell (Bruno Langley) desperately try to make an escape. Ultimately though the Dalek can catch up with Rose ... but her compassionate touch has triggered something in the creature so it can't kill her, thus turning more & more human ...

The Doctor meanwhile goes through Van Stratten's alien arsenal & soon finds a weapon to blast away the Dalek (at the sametime turning more & more into a Dalek-like killing-machine), but ultimately Rose prevents him from dong so.

The Dalek blasts a hole into the ceiling to one last time see the sun, but ultimately it realizes its time is over & self-destructs.

& while Van Stratten's second-in-command Goddard (Anna-Louise Plowman) sarts a welcome mutiny against her boss & promises to subject him to a bit of brainwashing & cementing his museum tight, the Doctor & Rose offer their new friend Adam Mitchell a trip through the universe but ultimately back home ...

 

This epsiode certainly features some nice (if not entirely orignial) ideas like the millionair collecting alien relics for his own pastime, but ultimately its a rather cheesy "there's something good in everyone - even a Dalek"-story that doesn't totally convince & due to its predictability (when Rose touches the Dalek, this is a dead giveaway that the creature won't kill her) fails to build up sufficient suspense.
