I have recently watched the classic Doctor Who episode Resurrection of the Daleks. It follows on from the events at the end of Frontios and sees The Doctor, (Peter Davison)Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Turlough being dragged down a time corridor in the TARDIS Before landing in the London docklands on the embankment side of Butler’s Wharf in 1984. Here they encounter A group of humans who are gunned down by two people disguised as policemen, led by Commander Lytton. Luckily Two of them Galloway and Quartermaster Sergeant Stien,(Rodney Bewes) manage to escape into the adjacent Butler’s Wharf.
Lytton is actually the commander of a Battle Cruiser which is preparing to attack a prison space station crewed byDr. Styles and Lt. Mercer. The only prisoner aboard the Space Station is the villainous Davros, the creator of the Daleks who has vowed revenge on The Doctor. Elsewhere , Lytton explains that the Movellans developed a virus that specifically attacks Dalek tissue, and the Daleks need Davros to find a cure. Davros then manages to take control of the engineer Kiston’s mind and the Doctor and his companions soon find themselves in the middle of a dastardly plot by the Daleks to release their evil leader Davros.
Lytton persuades the Dalek Supreme to use poisonous gas to clobber the crew and the Daleks take over the Prison ship. However Watch Officer Osborn attempts to destroy Davros, but is killed and Davros is released from his cryogenic imprisonment. The Doctor and his friends then meet a traumatised Stien and Turlough accidentally finds himself aboard the Dalek Ship having found the Time Corridor. Having learned the whereabouts of the Doctor, the Supreme Dalek orders a Dalek to be dispatched to EXTERMINATE him. Tegan suffers a head injury in the ensuing battle and Styles, Mercer, and two guards are the only members of the original crew to survive. Disguised in uniforms taken from Lytton’s guards, they plan to blow up the station via its self-destruct system.
Tegan, the Doctor and Stien discover what is happening at the other end of the time corridor. The TARDIS materialises inside the Dalek ship and Stien reveals that the Daleks are controlling his mind and he tries to EXTERMINATE the Doctor, luckily Lytton intervenes. Elsewhere Turlough joins forces with the remnants of the ship’s crew, who escape through the time corridor. The Supreme Dalek then reveals a dastardly plan to clone the Doctor and his companions, and use them to assassinate the High Council of Time Lords on Gallifrey.
Then group commander, Colonel Archer, is clobbered by Lytton’s associates and is cloned by the Daleks. The Daleks try to Condition The Doctor’s mind and Tegan makes an escape attempt, but is recaptured and taken to the Dalek ship. The squad’s scientific advisor, Professor Laird, is also shot while trying to escape and Davros orders the Daleks to give him tissue to establish the cure after consulting with The Supreme Dalek they agree however Davros has other ideas. In the duplication chamber, Stien becomes increasingly confused: the Doctor realises his conditioning is unstable and encourages him to think independently and he frees the Doctor. The Doctor then finds Turlough and Tegan, and they return to the TARDIS along with Stien and the last surviving station crew member.
Instead of departing, the Doctor decides he must destroy Davros once and for all. With Stien and Lt. Mercer he heads to the station lab, leaving Tegan and Turlough in the TARDIS. Davros then dispatches his Dalek Army to Earth, where they encounter the Daleks loyal to the Supreme Dalek, then Davros gives them a capsule of the Movellan Virus and all hell breaks loose. Then, while trying to escape from the Space Station, Davros finds himself incapacitated by the Movellan virus, and The Dalek Supreme tells the Doctor that the Daleks have duplicates of prominent humans all over Earth. Meanwhile Stein attempts to destroy the Space Station and The Dalek Ship.
