Recurring and Historical Characters

The Daleks are a race of evil mutants encased in powerful cyborg bodies whose shape is reminiscent of pepperpots. The Doctor has fought them many times, first encountering them on their home planet of Skaro in The Daleks. In that story, they were confined to a single city on Skaro and the Doctor thought he had defeated them forever. He later encountered them in The Dalek Invasion of Earth, where they had conquered the planet Earth, and The Chase when they had acquired a time travel machine and were chasing the TARDIS through time and space. In Mission to the Unknown and The Daleks' Masterplan they were plotting to conquer the Solar System. And the Doctor defeated a ship of Daleks on the planet Vulcan in The Power of the Daleks. The Doctor considers them his greatest enemy, and they are a serious threat to anyone they encounter.
