Prime Minister of the Daleks (Asylum of the Daleks) so a page can be created for the title of Dalek Prime Minister; Celia Dunthorpe expresses her intention to become PM in We Are The Daleks.

The Prime Minister of the Daleks was the leader of the Parliament of the Daleks of the New Dalek Paradigm.


The Prime Minister was a genetically boosted Dalek mutant who resided in a cylindrical cabinet of transparent finitoglass. After the many defeats that the Eleventh Doctor had inflicted on the New Dalek Paradigm, the Prime Minister promoted the Red Daleks to an officer class and had the Dalek drones returned to the style of the Bronze Daleks from the Last Great Time War, a design that the Prime Minister believed would invoke the most fear across the galaxy.

The Prime Minister ordered the abduction of the Eleventh Doctor and his companions, Amy Pond and Rory Williams, summoning them to the Parliament of the Daleks and granting them a mission to lower the indestructible force field of the Dalek Asylum so it could be destroyed to prevent the Daleks in the Asylum from breaking out.

Once this had been achieved by the human-turned-Dalek, Oswin Oswald, the Parliament launched an attack to destroy the Asylum. The Prime Minister's memory of the Doctor had been wiped by Oswin, along with the rest of the Daleks. When the Doctor came back to their ship, he was bombarded with "the Question" ("Doctor Who?") by the Prime Minister and the rest of the Parliament. The Doctor left shortly thereafter.

The sudden deletion of all information concerning the Doctor from the Pathweb caused the Prime Minister of the Daleks to spend whole centuries scrutinising over the mystery of the Daleks' forgotten enemy, going insane in the process.

The Daleks regained their memories of the Doctor’s role as their greatest enemy after Tasha Lem was converted into a Dalek puppet during the Siege of Trenzalore. Upon regaining these memories, the Prime Minister dashed itself against its glass case; the Supreme Dalek declared it unfit for service and exterminated the Prime Minister, becoming the new leader of the Parliament of the Daleks.

This particular Dalek did not wear any sort of battle armour casing, but instead situated itself in a clear glass tube where it was protected by the rest of the Parliament who were armed and would protect him. He was guarded at all times by his second in command, the demoted Dalek Supreme, who assisted him. (TV: Asylum of the Daleks)


Like the Dalek Time Controller, its voice was softer and more controlled than the staccato ranting usually used by Daleks, as befitted its collected personality; the Prime Minister even demonstrated a snarky streak when taunting the Doctor. (TV: Asylum of the Daleks)
