Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.


This article needs a big cleanup.

The term "Dalek Scientific Division" appears to only be used in two stories. Most of this page's info belongs on a separate "Dalek Scientist" page.

These problems might be so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Talk about it here or check the revision history or Manual of Style for more information.

The Dalek Scientific Division was a high-ranking group of Dalek Scientists in the Dalek hierarchy.

Their needs overrode all other orders and concerns in at least two missions. (AUDIO: The Genocide Machine, Return of the Daleks) They were headed by the Chief Scientist. (AUDIO: The Genocide Machine)

During the 22nd century Dalek invasion of Earth, Dalek scientists conducted the conversion of humans into Robomen. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Dalek Invasion of Earth)

The Chief Scientist reported to the Black Dalek that the TARDIS had been located. (PROSE: The Chase) After his "perfection" was called into question, a group of Dalek Scientists, headed by the Chief Scientist, were tasked by the Golden Emperor with taking him apart and rebuilding him with an increased brain capacity. After identifying the minor flaws in the Emperor's casing, the Scientists decided to rebuilt it completely, creating a much larger casing in Skaro's Great Hall with an enlarged, artificial organic brain to supplement the mutant, rather than a mere computer brain. The Chief Scientist, wearing a "special protective Dalekoat", was the one to finish plugging some cables connecting the casing to the wall. (COMIC: The Secret of the Emperor)

In 2540, a scientific group of no more than twelve grey Daleks, led by a Dalek Section Leader, attempted to learn the technique of invisibility from the natives of Spiridon, operating from a laboratory. (TV: Planet of the Daleks)

Amongst the humanised Daleks of Kyrol, scientists such as Adellus were had green casings. (COMIC: Children of the Revolution)

During the Second Great Dalek Occupation, the Scientific Division oversaw the reoccupation of Spiridon, now known as Zaleria. They intended to finish the invisibility experiments and recover the buried army. Susan Mendes and Kalendorf, on a visit to inspire the slaves as part of Susan’s work as “the Angel of Mercy”, noticed the Division’s occupation was more brutal than the norm, including the deployment of Ogrons to brutally police the population. Kalendorf began working with local rebels and the Seventh Doctor to destroy the frozen army, however the scientists realised his absence and tortured the truth from Suz, despite standing orders from the Supreme for her protection. The Daleks surrounded Kalendorf and threatened to kill him unless the Doctor backed down from destroying the army with heat rays. The Doctor complied, knowing Kalendorf‘s importance to history, and agreed to work with the Daleks on invisibility. After years of servitude to the Scientific Division, the Doctor overheard reports of a rebellion on Yaldos and, realising history was playing out correctly, released a virus that infected all the Daleks on Spiridon with fatal light wave sickness.
