- The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond were summoned to the Cabinet War Rooms in London by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The Doctor discovered Daleks working for Churchill. Increasingly frustrated by their charade as "soldiers", he shouted his name at them. This testimony unwittingly activated the Progenitor, awakening the New Dalek Paradigm, who killed the older Daleks. The new Daleks distracted the Doctor by arming their robot Bracewell with a bomb that would destroy the Earth. The Doctor saved the Earth, but the Daleks escaped. (DW: Victory of the Daleks)
