The Power of the Daleks
Episode Six contact sheet
The Dalek army prepares to take over. 'Exterminate all humans.'
'Daleks conquer and destroy, Daleks conquer and destroy...'
The Doctor, deputy governor Quinn and Polly are being led to the cells when the guards find their way blocked by a Dalek. The Doctor urges them to make a quick retreat.
Janley joins Bragen in his office. The rebellion is over, and Bragen now runs the colony.
Bragen asks Janley to help him kill the rebels who have made him leader.
Janley thinks it over and agrees...
... only to realise Bragen was ready to kill her if she didn't obey him.
The rebel Valmar has overheard their conversation.
The Doctor's party is confronted by another Dalek in the corridor.
The Doctor, Polly and Quinn use the distraction as an opportunity to escape from their guards.
Valmar goes to the room where Ben is being held.
He tells Ben that he's going to help him...
... because Bragen has got too ambitious.
Bragen proclaims himself governor...
... and announces that his predecessor was murdered by the rebels.
Declaring martial law, he tells the people, 'We know who the murderers are.'
As Ben listens to the announcement, the door opens.
He is joined by the Doctor, Polly and Quinn.
The Doctor's worried that the Daleks will soon begin destroying all life on the planet.
He rushes off to try and solve the problem.
Bragen's announcement has triggered the Dalek attack.
The exterminations begin.
The Doctor walks into the middle of a Dalek firefight and quickly plays dead.
Around them, the people of the colony are fighting the Daleks....
... and losing.
The bodies of the dead begin to line the colony.
In Lesterson's laboratory, Valmar is still fitting Daleks with guns.
Valmar is not pleased to be joined by Janley. She says she no longer trusts Bragen - but thinks she can still use the Daleks.
'We are your friends.' a Dalek agrees. Janley takes the Daleks with her.
The Doctor throws himself into his quarters, trying to escape the Daleks. Kebble follows moments behind him...
... and is exterminated.
The colony is at war. Guards are fighting rebels, and the Daleks are killing everyone.
A guard is shooting at a rebel barricade.
He's killing quite a few rebels. Janley turns up with her loyal Daleks, and orders the guard exterminated.
The Daleks gladly oblige...
... then turn on the colonists. Janley has been betrayed.
Janley and Valmar turn to run as the Daleks open fire.
The Doctor, Ben and Polly hide in Lesterson's laboratory.
Lesterson himself has gone mad.
He now marvels at the power of the Daleks.
'Man's had his day - finished now.'
Ben comforts Polly as a woman's dying scream is heard.
Out in the corridors, the Dalek slaughter continues.
Any attempt to fight back...
... is met with extermination.
Valmar is crouched over Janley's body. Quinn leads him quickly away.
The Doctor, Quinn and Valmar plot to stike back against the Daleks. The Doctor figures the solution lies with corrupting their power supply. He heads off to the Dalek capsule.
Bragen is losing control.
Most of the rebels are dead.
Most of the guards are dead.
Most of the colonists are dead.
The Daleks continue to slaughter the survivors.
Bragen broadcasts to the Daleks, offering them terms.
He's confronted by Quinn.
Quinn forces Bragen to order his remaining guards to sacrifice themselves to the Daleks. It's the colony's only chance.
The Doctor is trying to sabotage the Dalek's static power supply when he is interrupted by Daleks.
While the Doctor hides, the Daleks discover the interference.
Lesterson ducks out of hiding, offering himself to the Daleks. 'I am your servant. I gave you life.' 'Yes, you gave us life,' agrees the Dalek, killing him.
Lesterson is betrayed (montage with audio)
Lesterson's sacrifice has given the Doctor the chance he needed to activate his device. It doesn't work.
Frantically, the Doctor tries again.
Suddenly, the Daleks in the laboratory begin to scream.
Smoke belches out of them...
... and they explode.
It's the same across the colony...
... as the Daleks burn alive in their shells.
The crisis over, Bragen decides it's time to seize power again from Quinn.
He's shot by Valmar, falling dead by a burnt-out Dalek.
The Doctor has saved the colony - but ruined their power supply.
Stung by the colonists' ingratitude, the Doctor decides, 'I think we'd better get out of here... before they send us the bill.'
Out in the mercury swamps, the charred remains of a Dalek...
... stand guard over the TARDIS.
Feebly, the Dalek's eye stalk rises to watch the TARDIS fade from view.
