Harvest of the Daleks was the thirteenth story of The Many Lives of Doctor Who, published in 2018.

Summary Edit

No matter the time, the place, or the face, the Doctor will always run into the Daleks.

Not long before their trip to the Mondasian colony ship, the Twelfth Doctor and Bill Potts travelled to Gosligi's Branch tracking the signal of a Dalek harvest ship. Noting that the ship's tractor beams are abducting children, the Doctor runs into the open, his child-like mentality beaming him and Bill aboard.

Making his way to the ship's control room, the Doctor finds it automated, abducting children to harvest their creativity and upgrade the Pathweb. Suspecting that the old ship was pulled out of storage for the Last Great Time War, the Doctor wires himself in and puts it in a holding pattern, stripping its software to its most basic levels.

Despite this however, the door remains locked, even to the Doctor's Dalek impression. After Emily mentions "basic functions", the Doctor realises that the most basic thing to a Dalek is "Kaled", the word opening the door.

After gifting the ship to the people, the Doctor explains anagrams to Bill, using the example of "Eleven plus two" and "twelve plus one", both of which add up to thirteen.
