You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies.
--The Doctor

The Doctor and Ace arrive at Coal Hill School, perhaps a month after the First Doctor and company left. It doesn't take long before they're mixed up in trouble of the Dalek kind -- two separate Dalek factions, the Renegades (Grey) and Imperials (White), respectively opposed and loyal to Davros (as seen in "Revelation of the Daleks"), wage war on each other for possession of the Hand of Omega, a Time Lord superweapon. And unfortunately for both groups, the Doctor has laid a trap for them; he just has to make the right conditions to spring it and ensure that Group Captain Gilmore and his men don't get diced in the crossfire.


Despite being aired in the show's 25th anniversary year and featuring many links to Doctor Who's very first serial, "An Unearthly Child", this is not the official 25th anniversary special. That was "Silver Nemesis", the first episode of which aired on the actual anniversary.


Tropes

 Dalek: Small human female sighted on Level 3.

Ace: Who are you calling "small?!" [[[Batter Up]]]

Notes

  1. Ace has perhaps the most Backstory of any of the Classic companions. For one, as a child her friend Manisha's flat was firebombed by skinheads, so naturally she's less than pleased by both the sign and Mike's words
