Story notes[edit | edit source]
- This game is an alternate version to the events of TV: Dalek.
- The Doctor is the only other character from the original episode to appear in this game. The Dalek does not encounter anyone else and, as such their fates in this alternate version of the events of Dalek are unknown.
- In Level 10, the Dalek enters the Artefact Museum, where it can observe the various artefacts which were seen in Dalek.
- Upon completing the game, the player achieves a rank depending on their progress. From lowest to highest; Standard Dalek, Imperial Dalek, Supreme Dalek, Dalek Prime, Dalek Ultima, Dalek Emperor. Distinctly, the rank of "Dalek Ultima" is not derived from any story.
- The "Mission Complete" message deems that the Last Great Time War is ended when the Dalek exterminates the Doctor, the last Time Lord, and his TARDIS, the last TARDIS, thus making the Daleks the new Lords of Time, fulfilling the ambition Davros stated in TV: Remembrance of the Daleks.
- The models of the orange-hazard suited scientists seen here were later coloured white and repurposed to represent Cassandra O'Brien's surgeons in K9: Deja Who.
