I have to admit, I have my problems making heads or tails of this story, but I'll try to retell it for you anyhow:

The far future: The Daleks are suffering from some virus so they need their creator Davros (Terry Molloy) to make them resistant. Davros is locked up in a cryogenic chamber in some prisonship, so the Daleks will have to free him first before he will be able to work on them, naturally. But the Daleks also want to destroy Davros so he can't take control over them. On the other hand, the Daleks are not all that good in combat anymore, so they hire earth mercenary Lytton (Maurice Colbourne) to help them free Davros - but Lytton has an agenda all of his own, even if we never learn what it is.

Oh yeah, and zylinders containing the virus are hidden in present day London, so the Daleks have installed a time corridor so they can pick up the zylinders anytime they want. And for some reason, the Daleks have substituted a few leaders of present-day earth with duplicates who are to obey the Daleks' every will, but the duplicates are terribly unstable and usually find back to their originals' will after some time or other - not that that has much to do with the story though.

Ultimately Davros and his Daleks clash with the other Daleks loyal to Dalek Supreme, pretty much everyone releases the virus, the Daleks all die, Davros suddenly finds himself infected as well, the prison ship he is still at is blown to smithereens by one of the Daleks' duplicates (Rodney Bowes) who has found back to his original's will - and somehow Doctor Who (Peter Davison) and his companions Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Turlough (Mark Strickson) are thrown into the mix as well, but don't ask how.

The ending hjas Tegan bidding the Doctor farewell in a disappointingly banal and cheesy scene ...

 

Considering Doctor Who was originally conceived as a kids' TV show back in the 1960's, this episode is surpsisingly graphic: There are ruthless killiongs, violent shoot-outs and the Daleks and Davros all have splattering deaths - that said though, Resurrection of the Daleks actually is a major disappointment: The plot is overly convoluted on one hand and fails to make too much sense on the other, the Doctor himself and his companions are all but essential to the plot and have precious little important to do, and Maurice Colbourne's Lytton, the most colourful character of the story, is unfortunately underused and his motives are never properly explained - he will however return in the 1985 episode Attack of the Cybermen - by which time Colin Baker has taken over as the Doctor and Nicola Bryant as his companion.

In all, Ressurrection of the Daleks is a terrible waste of time.
