Remembrance of the Daleks

Remembrance of the Daleks is a serial in the science fiction television series Doctor Who, which originally aired in four parts from the 5th through to the 26th of October 1988.


The Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and his travelling companion Ace (Sophie Aldred) land the TARDIS in London, 1963, where the Doctor has unfinished business: The Hand of Omega, an ancient relic of the Time Lord cvilisation that the Doctor hid on Earth on an earlier visit to 1963.

Unfortunately, the Daleks have also heard about the Hand of Omega, and are trying to find it before the Doctor does. To complicate matters, there are two groups of Daleks at work - the Daleks are currently in the midst of a civil war between those that accept and those that reject the leadership of their creator Davros, and each side wants the Hand for themselves.

The Doctor and several hapless local humans are caught up in the heat of the battle between the two Dalek factions. But will they manage to keep the Hand of Omega from the grasp of the Dalek emperor?
