You may be looking for the comic story Museum Piece.

Museum Peace was the tenth and final short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Dalek Empire. It was written by James Swallow. It featured the Eighth Doctor and Kalendorf.

Later, it was re-released in Short Trips: Re:Collections. In 2009, it was read by Nicholas Briggs, becoming the first release in Big Finish's Subscriber Short Trips series.


The Doctor arrives in a Velyshaan museum dedicated to the Dalek War. He meets Kalendorf there, an old soldier. They reminisce about the war. The Doctor needed to meet Kalendorf so he could help him make a decision that would destroy the Daleks, albeit at the cost of everything the Doctor holds dear, namely Gallifrey and Time Lords.

A nearby Dalek in a display cabinet is not as dead as it seems and has charged enough power for one shot of its energy weapon. It sees the Doctor and Kalendorf and has to make the decision of which to kill. The Dalek chooses and fires. A nearby school child runs in front of the Doctor and Kalendorf and takes the shot. Kalendorf responds by destroying the Dalek. He turns around to see that the child is dead and the Doctor is nowhere to be seen. Kalendorf concludes that the Doctor had made his decision.
