The Dalek Council was the governing body of the Daleks on Skaro.


They convened in chambers on the fourth Level of the City. They were presumably destroyed when their power was drained away. (TV: The Daleks)

It seemed to have survived and was present when the Daleks tried to win the Great War. The Dalek Emperor and the Supreme Council determined that the Dalek Factor had to be researched so they could recondition humans with Dalek mentality throughout their history, potentially preventing the wars from ever happening. A Red Dalek acted as an emissary for the Council, overlooking the experiment being carried out by the blackmailed Second Doctor on Earth in 1866. (PROSE: The Evil of the Daleks)

Some time after the Daleks recovered from the resulting Dalek Civil War, (TV: The Evil of the Daleks) a Dalek Supreme with a gold and black casing was identified as "one of the Supreme Council". (TV: Planet of the Daleks)

In a later stage of the New Dalek Paradigm's history, the Dalek Council appeared to have been replaced by the Parliament of the Daleks, led by the Dalek Prime Minister, then the Supreme Dalek below him, along with one Strategist Dalek, hundreds of Officer class Drone Daleks, and thousands of drones of a design resembling those from the Last Great Time War. (TV: Asylum of the Daleks)

Alternate timelines Edit

In one alternate timeline in which the Daleks invaded Earth in the 22nd century after a series of devastating wars, the Gold Dalek, the Black Dalek and their aids formed the High Council of the Daleks in Earth Sector One. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Day of the Daleks)

In another alternate timeline where the New Dalek Paradigm conquered Earth in 1963, the Supreme Council Chambers were located in Kaalann. (GAME: City of the Daleks)
