** The real kicker is that the latter is long before the Time War, and the former is not long after, over half a dozen incarnations later. Three treats this kind of situation like a staunch, reserved, and observant gentleman who is happy to be in a position of superiority over a group of Daleks and believes there's a real chance at turning the tables on them. But after seeing the Daleks have grown into a much bigger threat and propelled the Time War, Nine is reduced to a panicked, hopeless fear just to be in the same room as a Dalek, and then gets worked up into a frothing rage turning openly wrathful and vindictive, maybe even bloodthirsty, at just ''one'' Dalek.

** Also this line...
-->'''Ninth Doctor:''' ''(said coldly, spitefully, and full of hatred)''
-->''(joyfully astonished)'' It's not working..! ''(laughs mean-spiritedly)'' Fantastic! Oh, ''fantastic!'' Powerless! Look at you. The great space ''dustbin.'' '''How does it feel!?'''
** [[CallBack Compared to this line from]] "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E3DeathToTheDaleks Death to the Daleks]]":
-->'''Third Doctor:''' ''(said warmly, triumphantly and full of confidence)''
-->Well, well, well. Daleks without the power to kill. [[HarsherInHindsight How does it feel?]]

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: Well, aside from the fact that the Dalek is the last of its kind, it's a bronze-casing Time War model Dalek. In other words, a basic footsoldier drone, finding out that its entire command structure and allies have literally been all destroyed, to the last unit. Compare it to a hardcore SS trooper finding out that the Reich has suddenly ceased to exist, and eating his gun.

Added DiffLines:

* ShockingVoiceIdentityReveal: The Dalek's distinctive voice and [[TalkingLightbulb flashing headlamps]] are all the Doctor needs for the horror to sink in.

Added DiffLines:

* SuicideDare: The Ninth Doctor delivers this line almost verbatim to the titular creature, and gets a great big ShutUpHannibal for his efforts. An unusual case of the [[AntiHero (anti-)]]hero delivering this line to the villain.

** Although not named, Davros is given a ShoutOut when the Doctor is asked who created the Daleks.
--->'''The Doctor:''' By a genius, van Statten. A man who was king of his own little world. [[StealthInsult You'd like him]].



** The Daleks putting the "technical" in the Doctor's TechnicalPacifist nature is [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E4PlanetOfTheDaleks nothing]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E4ResurrectionOfTheDaleks new]]. (See also BerserkButton.)
** Van Statten's line about how his men are replaceable but the Dalek is unique is quoted almost word-for-word (replacing "Krynoid" with "Dalek") from Harrison Chase in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E6TheSeedsOfDoom "The Seeds of Doom"]].

Added DiffLines:

** "EL-LEVATE!" After years of being joke antagonists, one line made quite sure these would be far more terrifying and less joke-prone than their older incarnations.

Added DiffLines:

* BatmanGrabsAGun: The Doctor, upon realizing what Van Statten's hiding, tries to torture the Dalek to death.


Added DiffLines:

* CharacterShilling: The Doctor's description of the damage one Dalek could do unchecked. Notably, this episode reintroduces the Daleks from the original show as a threat, when previously they'd suffered BadassDecay. TropesAreNotBad.


Added DiffLines:

** Played straight with the old Cyberman head, foreshadowing the next series.


Added DiffLines:

** "DOK. TOR." While the title gave away what Van Statten had in his basement, hearing the voice again qualifies both in-universe and for fans.

* ChewingTheScenery: The Doctor starts ''literally'' foaming at the mouth. {{Justified|Trope}} because, well, it's a ''[[TheDreaded Dalek]]''.

** On a lesser scale, but still counting due to how how much it changes the stakes from Classic Who: "[[AC:E-LE-VATE!]]"
*** Well, if you haven't seen Recap/DoctorWhoS25E1RemembranceOfTheDaleks, that is.

* BadBoss: Henry van Statten keeps control via his army of {{mook}}s and by brain-wiping his executives on a whim, keeping them in a state of sycophantic terror. Unfortunately by insisting the Dalek be captured [[WeHaveReserves regardless of casualties]] he alienates his security force, and by breaking down in fear in front of Goddard he loses her respect. Both quickly join forces to depose him after the crisis is over.



* KickTheDog: Van Statten brainwipes his executives on a whim, just to keep them in a state of sycophantic obedience.
