Doctor Who (Tom Baker) and the newly regenerated Romana (Lalla Ward, taking over from Mary Tamm) land on a planet that turns out to be Skaro, former homeplanet of the Doctor's deadliest foes, the Daleks, which is now deserted ... but is it ?

Soon enough, the Doctor and Romana see a spaceship land, and while the Doctor soon mingles with the spaceship crew, who turn out to be Movellans and seem quite friendly at first, Romana falls down a shaft and is taken prisoner - by the Daleks, who soon put her to work in their mines as a slave. Eventually, the Doctor, with the help of the Movellans and Tyssan (Tim Barlow), an escaped slave of the Daleks himself, frees Romana, and eventually too, they find out what the Daleks are really after ... Davros (David Gooderson), creator of the Daleks, who has spent an eternity buried under rubble, but who's still alive and who wants to lead the Daleks to their former glory again.

But why do the Daleks want Davros back, whom they disposed of in Genesis of the Daleks, the last Dalek-episode, in the first place ?

Actually, the Daleks are in a war with the Movellans which has led to a long-lasting stalemate. Why ? Because just like the Daleks, the Movellans are actually robots, and both of them are controlled by super computers, and the Dalek-supercomputer and the Movellan-supercomputer just can't make up a plan that the other can't counteract on, because they have no real cretivity. So the Daleks decided to turn to their creator Davros, who is still humanoid to an extent, while the Movellans soon think the Doctor will help them - which the Doctor has no desire to do since he has found out they are robots just as evil as the Daleks. Soon enough, the Movellans want to blow up Skaro while Davros wants to blow up the Movellan ship (using his Daleks as suicide bombers), but thanks to the freed Dalek-slaves led by Tyssan and thanks to the Doctor and Romana both plans are foiled, both the Dalkes and the Movellans on Skaro are overcome and destroyed, and Davros is put into deep-freeze. And the universe is safe once more ... or is it ?

 

The last ever Dalek story Terry Nation wrote for television - and unfortunately one of his weakest.

The concept of Destiny of the Daleks, with two supercomputers going to war but locked in stalemate before the first shot is even fired - so much so that they desperately need human input - is quite interesting, but all this premise amounts to is a run-of-the-mill adventure with your usual amount of running to and fro, lacking both the depth and the suspense of earlier stories, especially Genesis of the Daleks. Not totally bad though, just a missed opportunity.
