The one that actually made good use out of the Skittle Daleks.


He returns with the pieces necessary, constructs the chronon blocker in the form of a fancy bracelet, and Amy is saved! For the moment, anyway. Now they can start investigating. The Doctor figures the answers lie in the Supreme Council Chamber, but they first must find out if anyone's in there. So they go on another stealth mission to the visualizer room, and then one more to disable the giant eye in the room that acts as security (also a librarian, kinda). They are then able to see who's in the Supreme Council Chamber, and it is none other than the Dalek Emperor[[note]]A brand new version was made for this game. Now in blue, resembling the new blue Dalek introduced in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks "Victory of the Daleks"]] as well as the Emperor in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E13ThePartingOfTheWays "The Parting of the Ways"]][[/note]]. And apparently there's a thingy there too; could it be what's causing all this? Only one way to find out: go ask the Emperor himself. They take a lift up to the floor where the room is located, and are immediately caught by some Daleks. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation They don't shoot them, but instead take them straight to the Dalek Emperor.]] After some interrogation, they find out they've managed to possess the Eye of Time; a powerful natural entity containing more power than every TARDIS ever existed, once owned by the Time Lords, lost when Gallifrey disappeared, and somehow discovered by the Daleks.

* NoExportForYou: Non-UK fans were left frustrated when this and the games that followed were not made available outside the UK right away. Eventually, they were distributed by a download service, but for a fee ''and'' only the Windows version was made available; the trope was left in place for Mac users outside the UK.


Amy returns with the items, and the visual limiter is complete. And just in time, too: the Daleks have returned with the Eye. Unfortunately the range is quite limited, but the Doctor believes they can boost it to create a larger radius if they attach it to the base of the dead Dalek Emperor. The problem is there are a rather large number of Daleks on patrol, leaving almost no room to sneak by. Amy makes use of herself fading away to zip by the patrol and is able to secure the visual limiter. The device is successful, and now all the Daleks can't see. In panic, they begin shooting wildly in an attempt to hit something. The Doctor carefully weaves through the lightshow and disables the generators powering the Eye of Time, but now needs to rush back to Amy or it explodes.

The first in the Adventure Games series, fully canonical {{licensed game}}s. "City of the Daleks" kicks things off, written by Phil Ford, who wrote the animated Tenth Doctor adventure "[[{{Recap/DoctorWho2009ASDreamland}} Dreamland]]".

The Doctor takes Amy to [[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E1AnUnearthlyChild London, 1963, 'the coolest place not just on earth, but the whole galaxy']] to see Music/TheBeatles. Except, it's in ruins. Along with the rest of the planet. Clearly that's not right. The Doctor and Amy suddenly see a woman running, and a Dalek follows giving chase while calling her the last remaining human being; woah, what? Cue the opening sequence, rendered in 3D like the rest of the game. It's like we're just watching an episode or something.
