Part One
(drn: 31'31")

Twenty of the greatest powers in time and space are attending a conference on the planet Archetryx, the site of a rather disturbing incident in the recent past. Monitor Trinkett is determined to ensure that nothing goes wrong, but despite her best efforts there have been a number of unexplained energy surges from her planet's gravity wells, and the delegates are becoming concerned. The TARDIS materialises in the conference hall, drawn through Archetryx's temporal shields in the wake of a powerful time vessel -- presumably the ship from the Monan Host world. The Doctor and Evelyn are nearly arrested by Commander Vorna when they emerge, but to the Doctor's surprise, Co-ordinator Vansell of the Celestial Intervention Agency steps in and identifies them as members of the Time Lord President's personal staff. Vorna, irritated by the Time Lords' apparent disdain for Archetryx's security procedures, takes Evelyn to the security centre, while the Doctor accompanies Vansell to speak with the President and learn why the isolationist Time Lords have chosen to attend this conference.

Once the gravity wells are stable again, Trinkett's assistant Ensac leaves to escort the High Minister to the delegates' lounge. Soon afterwards Evelyn arrives to be fitted with a security bracelet, but before she can return to the lounge, Trinkett picks up a gravitational disturbance in a nearby sector of space. It appears that the phantom planet of Etra Prime has returned, and that Archetryx's defensive shields are now unstable -- which should be impossible, as the High Minister himself had examined them just the other day. But the High Minister is no longer entirely in control of himself. Moments after addressing the delegates, he hears a high-pitched tone in his mind, and orders Ensac to escort him back to his quarters -- where Ensac also hears the sound in his mind. Entranced, Ensac returns to Control, where he tells Trinkett that the instrumentation is giving faulty readings, and shuts it all down for "repairs" before she can stop him. Even as they speak, the Daleks are approaching Archetryx, ready to put their latest plan in motion...

The Doctor is greeted warmly by the elderly President, who explains that he was called out of retirement to serve during Gallifrey's current state of emergency. Twenty years ago, unique elements which seemed to disobey the laws of physics were found on Etra Prime, the oldest known planetoid in the Universe. Since Etra Prime was in Archetryx's space, representatives from numerous interested worlds traded with them in exchange for permission to send a scientific team to Etra Prime. Shortly afterwards, however, Etra Prime vanished into time and space, taking 500 people with it, including the newly elected President of the Time Lords. One year later, three hundred of the missing scientists were found dead on Archetryx, their bodies riddled with time distortion. Only the fact that Archetryx clearly did not possess the means to commit such a crime prevented a war, and its desperate people were only too happy to volunteer their world as the site for this conference on the limitation of temporal manipulation. The Doctor realises that Vansell is attending in the hopes of conducting a little espionage on the other species which possess time-travel technology -- but the President is here in the hope of learning who or what is responsible for the disappearance of Etra Prime... and of President Romanadvoratrelundar.

The Doctor is disturbed to learn that his former companion has been missing for twenty years, but his more immediate concern is the temporal wake which brought him here. What if it wasn't caused by the Monan Host vessel, but by Etra Prime? The Doctor and Vansell decide to question Trinkett, and although she tries to convince them at first that nothing untoward is happening, she is eventually forced to admit that before Ensac switched off her monitors she had detected what appeared to be a planetary body moving through the system at high speed. It was not massive enough to be Etra Prime -- unless the minerals beneath its surface had been entirely mined out... The Doctor notes Ensac's strained behaviour, and when he tries to get a closer look at what Ensac is doing Ensac attacks and nearly kills him. Vorna restrains him, and the Doctor discovers that Ensac has sabotaged the sensors and shields, effectively blinding them and trapping them within the conference hall. The Doctor attempts to repair the damage -- and picks up life signs directly outside the building...

While searching for the Doctor, Evelyn spots the High Minister behaving suspiciously, and follows him to the hall's berthing bays -- where she sees him plant a bomb by the exterior wall. She is nearly buried under the rubble when the bomb goes off, killing the High Minister, bringing down the wall and allowing a squad of Daleks into the building. The Doctor repairs the internal sensors just in time to see his greatest enemies invading the building, preparing to destroy the engineering section. As long as the shields remain active the delegates will be unable to escape. Vansell offers to rescue Evelyn on the condition that the Doctor use his expertise to lower the shields again. As the Doctor gets to work, Ensac dies, his usefulness as a Dalek pawn fulfilled. But what do the Daleks want -- and why are they apparently steering Etra Prime on a collision course towards Archetryx?

Vansell and Vorna rescue Evelyn, but are too late to prevent the Daleks from destroying the engineering section. Rather than proceeding to exterminate the delegates, the Daleks instead attempt to steal the Monan Host vessel -- the only ship powerful enough to force its way through the active shields, and the reason that Vansell came to the conference in the first place. The Monan craft is not dimensionally transcendental, however, and only eight Daleks will fit inside. They are able to pilot it through the shields and back to Etra Prime, however, and the remaining Daleks fan out through the docking bays and self-destruct, bringing down the walls and blocking the doorway with rubble. The delegates, already trapped behind the shields, have now been cut off from their time machines.

The Doctor is unable to circumvent Ensac's work, and realises that to lower the shields he will have to go directly to their power source, the gravity wells. Although Trinkett is reluctant to reveal her world's secrets to an outsider, she has no choice, and thus warns the Doctor about the recent power surges. There appears to be a high level of organic impurity within the wells, and the Doctor fears that this may explain where the remaining bodies from the Etra Prime expedition are located. He must enter the gravity wells both to save Archetryx and to find out what has happened to Romana. He and Trinkett don survival suits and enter the wells, but encounter an unexpected threat within. The wells are full of Dalek mutants, outside their travel casings and manouevring freely within a zero-gravity environment. Before the Doctor and Trinkett can retreat to safety, they are overwhelmed by the attacking mutants...

Part Two
(drn: 35'36")

For twenty years, Romana has been a Dalek slave on Etra Prime, confined to a small lightless cell for days at a time, given barely enough food and exercise to keep her alive, and forced to carry out those tasks which the Daleks cannot or will not perform themselves. The soul-numbing routine is killing her a little bit each day. When the stolen Monan ship arrives, Romana and a former Monan engineer named Vrint are ordered to remove its main drive and use it to construct a temporal centrifuge. As they work, Romana notes that the Daleks are communicating with a science team still hidden on Archetryx, using crystal implants which seem to channel Dalek mental energy; presumably they are avoiding conventional transmitters in order to prevent their team on Archetryx from being discovered. The science team's creation, something with the ominous name of the Apocalypse Element, is to be transmatted into an inertia chamber on Etra Prime, and Romana deduces that it must be too volatile to handle by conventional methods -- and that the temporal centrifuge is required to accelerate the process and allow the Daleks to harvest the Element before they abandon Etra Prime for good.

The Doctor gets Trinkett to safety, and just as he is about to be overcome by his attackers a surge of energy through the gravity wells weakens the Daleks and allows him to escape. Evelyn has followed the Doctor, seen his predicament and tampered with the wells' controls to create a distraction; unfortunately, although she has saved his life, she's also created a feedback loop which threatens to blow the wells open and kill them all. The Doctor sets up a counter-harmonic vibration and stabilises the power surge, but is forced to devote the console's entire programme to maintaining this stability -- which means that the only way to lower the shields is to enter the gravity wells once again, risking another attack from the mutants.

The Black Dalek informs the trapped delegates that the surviving Daleks in the berthing bays are plundering the secrets of the delegates' time machines. Attacks have been launched on the delegates' home worlds, and the people of Archetryx will not be of any help; their leaders were replaced with Dalek duplicates long ago, who manipulated the powers of the galaxy into holding their conference here. Soon Etra Prime will collide with Archetryx, destroying both worlds. Realising that they have been played for fools, the delegates agree to work together to break through into the berthing bays. Vansell contacts the Doctor to update him on the situation, and Evelyn offers to help clear the rubble away from the berthing bays. As soon as the delegates break through, however, the Daleks open fire upon them, driving them back. Evelyn and Trinkett offer to look for another way through; perhaps if they find an inspection hatch they can get behind the Daleks and create a distraction.

As Vrint and Romana work, they learn that the Daleks intend to crash Etra Prime into Archetryx, destroying both worlds and all evidence of what they have done here. As soon as the two planets are within transmat range, the science unit on Archetryx transmats the Apocalypse Element to Etra Prime, and the Black Dalek orders Romana to operate the temporal centrifuge so the Element can be harvested. Romana claims that she must first examine the transmat to ensure that the Element was not damaged by its transfer. The Black Dalek is suspicious and orders his guards to exterminate her, but Romana and Vrint take shelter behind the inertia chamber, and the Daleks are unable to fire upon them for fear of damaging the Element. Romana reverses the settings on the transmat and sends herself and Vrint back to Archetryx, along with one of the Daleks' focussing crystals -- a vital element of their plan. The transmat is damaged when the Daleks attempt to gun down the escaping Romana and Vrint, and they are thus unable to follow her. The spearhead on Archetryx must recover the crystal, whatever the cost.

The Doctor enters the gravity wells to complete his work, and this time, by keeping his torch off and staying quiet, he avoids the Dalek mutants long enough to reach the shield controls. They soon find him again, but as they launch themselves at him Romana and Vrint materialise nearby, distracting the Doctor's attackers. The Doctor manages to switch the lights on inside the wells, disorienting the mutants long enough for him to switch the gravity on as well. The mutants are crushed against the walls by the sudden return of gravity to the wells, and the Doctor completes his work and switches off Archetryx's temporal shields. He is then joyously reunited with Romana, and finds that she and Vrint have materialised a Dalek laboratory set up to synthesise a substance which could only be created in the unique conditions of Archetryx's gravity wells. The Dalek embryos in the wells have also been implanted with the thought-transfer crystals, but the Doctor and Romana have no time to ponder their discoveries. As they flee back to the berthing bays, the Doctor is shocked by Romana's callous dismissal of her fellow slaves, trapped on Etra Prime and doomed to death; twenty harsh years as a Dalek slave have changed his former friend.

Vorna and Evelyn locate an inspection hatch and distract the Daleks while the Time Lord President rallies his fellow delegates into an attack. The Doctor and Romana arrive and join the attack, but there is little time for a reunion, as the Daleks immediately head for Romana to recover the stolen crystal. The Doctor tosses Evelyn the TARDIS key, and he and Romana retreat once again to lure the Daleks away. They are cornered in the corridors, but the Doctor holds off the Daleks by threatening to smash the crystal against the wall, and as they hesitate Trinkett arrives and destroys them. The Doctor flings the crystal back at the pursuing Daleks, who immediately retreat and evacuate from Archetryx. The Doctor, Romana and Trinkett get to the TARDIS, where Evelyn is waiting for them, and escape from Archetryx mere seconds before Etra Prime collides with it. As the Doctor prepares to return Romana home, Trinkett realises that her planet has just been destroyed, but as she tries to cope with the shock, the Doctor picks up a rather disturbing transmission from his own home world...

The President and Vansell return to Gallifrey, and the furious President demands an immediate meeting of the High Council to determine their response to the Daleks' latest outrage. Captain Reldath then reports that a delegation from the Monan Host world has arrived in Gallifreyan space, seeking sanctuary; they are being pursued by Daleks which have invaded their own home world. The President sympathises but is unwilling to intervene in matters of war; however, Vansell points out that the Monan Host time ship is smaller and sleeker than the one they saw on Archetryx, and therefore must be more advanced. He still wishes to learn the secrets of the Monan Host's technology, and therefore suggests that they allow the flagship through the transduction barriers; they will then be able to set terms for future assistance. Even as they speak, a Dalek fleet is approaching Gallifrey and the Monan refugee fleet; the desperate Monans will agree to any terms the Gallifreyans set. Reluctantly, the President agrees to let the flagship through the transduction barrier, and Captain Reldath transmits the co-ordinates of the TARDIS cradles to them. It is this transmission which the Doctor picks up, and only he suspects the truth. But he has no way of warning the Time Lords, who go to greet the Monan delegates -- only to be attacked by a spearhead of twenty Daleks. This is not a Monan ship at all, but a disguised Dalek time machine... and the Daleks are invading Gallifrey.

Part Three
(drn: 35'58")

Trinkett wants to return to Archetryx to find out if her world has survived, but the Doctor can't afford to leave until he's sure whether Gallifrey is safe. However, as he watches, the "Monan" ships transform into Dalek ships -- and if the camouflage is no longer necessary, this must mean that the Daleks have achieved their objective and reached Gallifrey. Romana connects herself to the TARDIS telepathic circuits, hoping to use her Presidential access codes to get them through the transduction barrier; however, as she struggles to synchronise herself with the antique Type 40, the Daleks notice the nearby TARDIS and open fire. Romana feels each impact through her telepathic link to the TARDIS, but with effort she manages to transmit the codes and pull them through the transduction barrier. Straight into a war zone...

The Time Lords never expected anything like this. The Daleks have seized the TARDIS cradles, and as the guards have been forced to retreat, leaving their dead and wounded behind, the Daleks have harvested the eyes from a wounded soldier and used them to bypass the cradle's retinal security locks. As the residential areas of the Capitol are evacuated, the guards fight their way back step by step, trying to prevent the Daleks from reaching the access ports, through which they will be able to travel anywhere in the Capitol. The President blames himself for listening to Vansell and throwing away the Time Lords' isolation in the hope of gaining a minor strategic advantage. But if the Daleks have already invaded the Monan Host world and assimilated all of their discoveries -- technology which even the Time Lords wanted for themselves -- what do they want with Gallifrey? Meanwhile, the Black Dalek monitors the progress of the invasion; the team from Archetryx has returned with the focussing crystal, and the Daleks on Gallifrey have secured the means to override the Time Lords' security systems. Soon they will shut down the transduction barriers and the fleet will be able to invade en masse...

The Doctor's TARDIS materialises in the cradles, and as the Doctor prepares to face the Daleks, the others offer to accompany him; if Gallifrey falls, what will the Daleks set their sights on next? The TARDIS doors open upon a massacre; the ceremonial guards in the cradles never stood a chance against an invasion force. The Daleks surround the Doctor and his friends and prepare to exterminate them, but Romana offers to give them the Presidential codes they need to lower the transduction barriers. Vansell and Reldath arrive with their forces, but fortunately they hold off to see whether Romana is bluffing, and she is able to penetrate the Dalek neural net using a stolen thought-transfer crystal and release twenty years of repressed loathing and hatred upon the Daleks. The spearhead is stunned, and the Doctor and his friends manage to escape from the cradles; however, the Daleks detect the presence of an intruder in their group mind and expel her. The Doctor gets her to safety before the spearhead recovers, but she has touched the Dalek mindset and knows that they are planning something truly evil with the Element they harvested from Etra Prime.

A chance comment from Evelyn inspires the Doctor, who takes her and Vansell to security control while Romana confers with the President. Trinkett and Reldath remain, trying to hold off the Dalek spearhead and buy the Doctor time. At the security centre, the Doctor has Vansell order the operators to stand down and then uses Vansell's security override to erase every Gallifreyan retinal print from the Matrix and install Evelyn's. The Daleks will no longer be able to use slaughtered Gallifreyan soldiers to bypass the security systems -- now only Evelyn's eyes can access the grid. The Doctor sends Evelyn and Vansell to pull the isolated guard patrols together, while he tells the President and Romana what he has done. Romana in turn warns him what she sensed in the Dalek neural net; the ancient essence mined from Etra Prime has been imbued with the evil of all the thousands of Daleks connected to the neural net, and the result is something almost inconceivably malevolent and destructive. The Doctor has no choice but to ask Romana to enter communion with the Daleks again, so they will have some idea of what it is they're up against.

The Daleks shoot out the power lines, plunging the TARDIS cradles into darkness; whereas the Daleks can see in infrared, the Gallifreyan defenders are helpless. Reldath chokes up, and it is left to Trinkett to order the guards to retreat. They manage to escape seconds before the Doctor seals the bulkheads, locking the Daleks in the cradles. As they rest outside, Reldath confesses to Trinkett that he's completely out of his depth; the Time Lords thought themselves above the barbaric concept of war, and were never prepared for anything like this. Evelyn and Vansell arrive, but as Vansell explains the importance of protecting Evelyn, the Daleks burn through the wall of the cradles, cutting off their retreat. Meanwhile, the Black Dalek learns that the Apocalypse Element is now ready for use, and sends a soldier Dalek on a suicide mission. It is to take the Element to the heart of Galaxy 17A53, otherwise known as Seriphia, and there it is to self-destruct, thus demonstrating the power the Daleks now hold over the entire Universe.

As Romana struggles to interpret the images she is receiving from the Dalek neural net, the Black Dalek contacts the President and threatens to destroy Seriphia if he does not surrender. Romana realises that it's not bluffing; the Apocalypse Element the Daleks have synthesised reacts catastrophically with the fabric of space, and could conceivably set the Universe ablaze. The reaction can only be controlled using Gallifreyan time technology to distort time around the Element, containing it within a separate time continuum. The Doctor and the President refuse to believe that even the Daleks would release such a hideously destructive and uncontrollable force, and call their bluff... and the Black Dalek therefore ignites the Element. Romana tries and fails to contain the mental signal, and as she collapses from the psychic shock, the centre of Seriphia begins to blaze. Unless the Time Lords act to contain the effect it will spread out throughout the rest of the Universe -- but they will have to lower the transduction barriers to do so, and this will allow the Dalek task force to land and conquer Gallifrey. Either way, the Universe is doomed...

Part Four
(drn: 34'00")

With every second's hesitation countless lives are added to an already incalculable death toll. Nevertheless, when Vansell calls from the TARDIS cradles to report that they are trapped, the Doctor goes to the rescue, opening a bulkhead, locating a Daleks whose eyestalk has been shot off, and using it as cover to steer the others to safety. He then pushes the Dalek towards the rest of its comrades, and as the blinded Dalek fires randomly into the darkness, the other Daleks delay to destroy it while Evelyn shuts the bulkhead. Reldath takes Evelyn to close the remaining bulkheads between the cradles and the Council Chamber and delay the Daleks for as long as possible, and then she joins the Doctor and Vansell in the operations chamber while Trinkett and Reldath remain to hold off the Daleks. The President is monitoring the devasation in Seriphia, and Romana, recovering from the mental backlash of the Element's ignition, accompanies the Doctor to the Eye of Harmony to set up the equipment they will need to contain the effect.

Vansell and Evelyn set off to collect the stellar engineering equipment the Doctor will require, but Vansell is still bemused by the insanity of the Daleks' scheme. Their ultimate goal has always been their own survival, so why risk unleashing a force which will destroy even them? Even now, the Daleks are discovering that the rate of destruction is exceeding their own predictions; Seriphia will be destroyed within six hours and after that the firestorm will be uncontainable. The Black Dalek contacts the President and informs him that there is insufficient time remaining for the Time Lords to contain the effect themselves; they must allow the Daleks to land on Gallifrey and assist them if the Universe is to be saved. The President refuses even to consider such an action, at least out loud... but what if the Daleks are telling the truth? The Dalek spearhead on Gallifrey is self-destructing its way through the bulkheads, suggesting either that they are confident of victory -- or are desperate to get to the Eye of Harmony before it's too late...

Even if the Doctor and Romana succeed in controlling the Effect they will be handing the Daleks the means of controlling the ultimate weapon, but even so, the Doctor insists that they must save as many lives as they can. His frustration is getting the better of him even as Romana strives to remain objective, knowing what a mistake will cost at this stage. When Vansell and Evelyn arrive with the equipment they need, the Doctor installs it and tries to coax as much power through as he can... but it is ultimately not enough. Romana is forced to shut it down before the Eye blows them all to bits, and the President reports that the effect is still uncontained. The Doctor, frustrated, loses his temper when Evelyn seems unable to comprehend the scale of the disaster they are witnessing; an entire galaxy four times larger than the Milky Way is burning as they speak, six hundred billion stars and an unimaginable number of lives have already been lost, and if they cannot contain the firestorm then it will spread out until nothing is left, anywhere. The Doctor calms down and apologises for his outburst, but Evelyn now understands the incomprehensible scale of the disaster, and goes with Vansell to fetch the power boosters which the Doctor requires.

The President, knowing that the Doctor and Romana have tried and failed, has no choice but to contact the Black Dalek and offer a conditional surrender. He will allow an unarmed scientific team to land on Gallifrey if the Black Dalek orders the spearhead already on Gallifrey to self-destruct. The Black Dalek rejects his proposal and makes a counter-offer; if the President raises the bulkheads and allows the spearhead through to operations control, then they will allow him to disarm them. Trusting to the Daleks' urge to survive, the President accepts these terms and proceeds to the front lines, where he orders Reldath and Trinkett to fight to the last man should the Daleks renege on their agreement. He then raises the bulkheads, and allows the Dalek squad leaders through. As promised, they permit him to begin disarming them.

Evelyn and Vansell find the power boosters which the Doctor requires, but are then confronted by a lone Dalek, which managed to slip through the bulkheads when the Doctor rescued them and which has now circled around behind them. As they flee, Evelyn is caught by the fringe of a blast and loses the feeling in her legs. Knowing that the Doctor needs the boosters and that the Daleks will have to keep her alive to use her eye-print, she urges Vansell to flee and gives herself up to the Dalek scout. Once it verifies that her eyes are indeed Gallifrey's sole security clearance print, it contacts the spearhead leader to inform it that access to the Council Chambers is now assured. The President has only disarmed one Dalek when they receive the news, and as they no longer require his co-operation, the other Daleks exterminate him. Furious, Reldath snatches up the dropped gun and destroys the disarmed Dalek, but he and Trinkett are then forced to flee as the remaining Daleks advance. The spearhead then shuts down the transduction barriers, allowing their fleet access to the planet. Gallifrey has fallen to the Daleks.

The Doctor and Romana have recalibrated the Eye of Harmony and are ready to try again. Evelyn arrives under guard, but Trinkett and Reldath also arrive and destroy the scout. The Doctor orders Evelyn to open the Eye of Harmony, but as she does so, a Dalek time machine materalises in the chamber of the Eye and the full invasion force emerges to seize control. They appear to be too late; even the stunning amount of power now flooding through the Eye is not enough to contain the Effect. The Black Dalek, however, tells the Doctor to throw Romana's captured thought-transfer crystal into the Eye; the neural energy of the Dalek group mind will give the Eye the power boost it needs. Although unconvinced that this will be enough, the Doctor has nothing to lose, and he therefore tosses the crystal into the Eye. An enormous explosion rocks the chamber, and when the smoke clears, Romana finds that the effect has indeed been contained -- and that the Daleks are all dead, having poured their entire life essence through the crystal to contain what they had unleashed. What's more, the Dalek operating the console has set time into acceleration within the new barrier, and even as Romana watches the Element burns itself out -- and new matter forms in place of the destruction, a new galaxy born out of Seriphia's ashes. It appears that the Daleks overreached themselves, but the dying Black Dalek reveals that this was always their contingency plan. They knew that the Element was too unstable to use as an instrument of destruction -- but they have just created a whole new galaxy in place of Seriphia, millions of virgin worlds which the Daleks are poised to transform into their new empire...

Later, as Gallifrey recovers from the invasion, the Doctor prepares to slip away again. Vansell is upset with the Doctor for leaving just as the cleaning up begins, but it's no more than Romana had expected. Evelyn's eye-print has been removed from the security matrix, but the Doctor advises her not to look too closely at the TARDIS; there's no telling how it will react to a human retinal print in future. Reldath has taken Trinkett back to Archetryx to help locate survivors of the devastation, and Romana promises to help both Archetryx and the Monan Host world to recover from the Dalek attack and to ensure that Seriphia doesn't fall to the Daleks. As long as she remains President, Gallifrey will never be isolated and defenseless again...
