With the return of Davros in The Magician's Apprentice we thought it would be good to look back at some of his Classic Who stories.
Revelation of the Daleks
By Eric Saward
“When you have become a Dalek, you will suffer for every indignity you have ever caused me.”
The Doctor and Peri have landed on Necros to go to the funeral of his old friend Professor Stengos. The funeral is being held at Tranquil Repose which is a place where people go to be frozen and then awaken when a cure for their disease is found. On the way the pair is attacked by a mutant and tries to kill The Doctor before Peri hits him with a stick. Before he dies the mutant tells The Doctor that the Great Healer has been doing experiments on him and others.
Unknown to The Doctor and Peri that the Great Healer is in fact Davros and he made the whole funeral for The Doctor’s friend to get him to Necros. Davros is using Tranquil Repose for his own bidding as he is using the people in suspended animation to make a new type of Dalek. Those that don’t work out he process them as food as another way to get funding for his new Dalek project. The Doctor is starting to suspect something is not right with Tranquil Repose and once he is escorted to see the Great Healer and is greeted by Daleks it all makes sense. Yet another encounter with Davros himself and this time Davros has the upper hand.
