Evil of the DaleksEdit

In this story, do the black domed Daleks actually make up the Emperor's Personal Guard? I believe that when I was listening to the audio version they were referred to as Section Leaders, which would put them in a different class. Arguably they do guard the Emperor from the Humanised Daleks towards the end, however their role in directing the operations of "normal" Daleks seems consistent with them being Section Leaders rather than actual Guards. That said, are there any stills from the story that show black domed Daleks around the Emperor all the time aside from the "normal" Daleks when the Doctor and co. were brought before him? I'm open to having my view changed on this, I was a believer that these Daleks were his personal guard, but now I'm not so sure, thoughts? -- Imperial Emperor - Talk

Only for the Emperor? Edit

I don't think Emperor's Personal Guard is the best way to describe these Daleks. In the novel Prisoner of the Daleks, Dalek X has guards with black domes too, and he's not the Emperor. Maybe we could change the title of the page to something like Elite Guards or something along those lines? 16:15, May 17, 2011 (UTC)TheCoud'veBeenKing

I notice there's been a tiny bit of an edit conflict conerning these Daleks in the Series 9 opener. Is there any particular reason why information on these Daleks from that story shouldn't be included on this page?--TheCoud'veBeenKing 09:34, September 28, 2015 (UTC)

Multiple models of Daleks exist in the story, yes, but surely for an Emperor's Personal Guard, black dome or otherwise, they have to have an Emperor or similar to guard (the closest the stories get I think is The Magician's Apprentice calling Davros, dark lord of Skaro). The way the paragraph is laid out is that they're just one of several models and designs of Dalek seen which happen to have black domes and silver plating. I don't see any relevance here as to what that has to do with anything. -- Tybort (talk page) 10:23, September 28, 2015 (UTC)
