Before ''Film/TheTerminator'', there was ''Day of the Daleks''.

A peace conference is being held in Britain under the auspices of Sir Reginald Styles - it's a reconvening of the one from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E2TheMindOfEvil The Mind of Evil]]", and UNIT are once again providing security. Because they did such a bang-up job previously.

Anyhow, Styles is attacked and nearly killed by a guerrilla fighter in futuristic dress, but is saved by the intervention of a big - well - '''go'''rilla fighter, who knocks the assassin out and disappears. The Doctor deduces that the unconscious man is from the future, and that a device found with him is a time-travel gadget.

-->''"I assure you, Brigadier, there's nothing to worry about. Tell Styles that. Tell the Prime Minister. And, Brigadier, be particularly sure to tell it to the Marines."''

Daleks''.



The Doctor poses as Styles in order to catch the assailants. They try again, but the Doctor convinces them he's not Styles. Jo accidentally activates one of the time-travel gadgets and zaps herself into the 22nd century, and the Doctor and the guerrillas follow her. One of the guerrillas, Shura, is attacked and left behind, presumed dead..

* EnhancedOnDVD: The DVD special release does an ''extensive'' overhaul of the episode. It adds a lot of CGI in place of the primitive green screen-esque colour separation overlay effects (the monitors look more futuristic, the Dalek headquarters exterior shot is completely different and the building looks more intimidating with flying vehicles in the background), laser blasts, with people and Ogrons being more graphically disintegrated (controversially adding a scene where the Doctor [[BatmanGrabsAGun kills another Ogron]]).
** It also has veteran Dalek voice actor Nicholas Briggs portray the Daleks in place of the original and admittedly shaky voice acting- the series had tried to write off the Daleks and thus didn't have a go-to actor portrayal ready and able, and so the producers brought on two actors who hadn't been as versed with Dalek voices and by now were out of practice- Roy Skelton would later be called back and become the definitive classic series voice of the Daleks.
** Most notably, the climactic battle at Auderly House had entire sequences re-filmed ''decades'' after the serial had been released through funding by 2 entertain to show a true army of Daleks and Ogrons duking it out versus using new and borrowed costumes, when the original tried to create the illusion of an army by re-using the same shots of only a few Daleks and Ogrons rather unconvincingly. In fact the production team may have possibly been limited to '''two''' Daleks by Jon Pertwee's estimate (again, the series nearly wrote off the Daleks and didn't have that many props on hand), nowhere near enough to depict a fearsome battle.
