A Dalek Emperor presided over the Daleks' 2254 Dalek invasion of Earth. Unlike other holders of the Emperor rank before him, it was willing to work with Davros and allow him authority over the Dalek Empire. It inhabited a bronze-colored casing with a bulbous top section, similar to that of the Golden Emperor or Dalek Prime's, but, unlike the Golden Emperor's, this casing was large and heavily armed.
When Davros, in 2254, planned to have the Daleks invade Earth and turn it into a Dalek production planet, he addressed the Daleks on Skaro in the presence of a Dalek Emperor. This invasion, foreseen by the Time Lords, was put to an end by the Seventh Doctor and his companion Ace.
Returning from several globe-trotting missions foiling the Daleks' plan in various regions of Earth, the Doctor was told by the Time Lords that Davros had stolen a Time Ring which it was imperative that he should retrieve, and taken it to Skaro. The Doctor made his way to the Dalek planet, where, trying to get at the Time Ring, he encountered the Emperor, who was guarded by two Daleks of a new design. Using his sonic screwdriver, the Doctor was able to make the Emperor and its guards explode into nothingness. (GAME: Dalek Attack)
Behind the scenes
- This Emperor may be the earliest instance of a Dalek with a bronze-coloured casing, which would become the norm from 2005 onwards with the lasting Dalek redesign performed by the revived TV series.
