The Dalek Time Controller was a Dalek from the far future which was created with an evolved mind that allowed it to perceive time in a more advanced manner than a standard Dalek. Consequently, the Dalek Time Controller was given the position of strategist for all Dalek time missions. (AUDIO: To the Death)
The Dalek Time Controller oversaw the Dalek scheme to transform the 400 Sunlight Worlds into "a billion Skaros." He manipulated the TARDIS' destinations in the Time Vortex and led the Eleventh Doctor into uncovering the secrets to the Cradle of the Gods. The Time Controller also outranked the Dalek Supreme on this mission and countermanded the Supreme's orders to take action, lest it disrupt the flow of time. This Dalek was described of being of a similar design to the Time War Dalek, but having a shifting color scheme and shape, with a neck section surrounded by rings and containing the Time Vortex. A wavering effect surrounded the rings.
The Time Controller posed as the Dalek Litigator — a judge in the law courts of the Sunlight Worlds. It acted as the prosecution when the Eleventh Doctor was placed on trial on two occasions for claiming the Daleks were evil (something considered a hate crime), outwitting him on both occasions.
When the Daleks tracked Patient Zero to the Amethyst Viral Containment Station in the past the Time Controller commanded a mission sent there, planning to move the station through time to the Daleks. The Sixth Doctor damaged their operations and left them trying to fend of an explosion. However the Time Controller realised the explosion at the Amethyst Viral Containment Station had caused the viruses to be scattered through time and allowed it to happen. The Doctor believed the Time Controller had been destroyed in the explosion. (AUDIO: Patient Zero)
However, it was blasted back through the Time Vortex to the late 22nd century where it was retrieved by the Daleks, though it was decaying from its experience. They contacted the Monk due to his temporal knowledge, and he was able to repair it. The Dalek Time Controller took control over Dalek operation and orchestrated the second Dalek invasion of Earth, forcing the Monk to release another plague to weaken humanity. It planned to use Earth as a space ship containing the viruses from the Viral Station, having seen where they would end up while it was in the Vortex and installing a time engine into Earth to travel to this point. The plague planet could then be piloted through the Universe, infecting entire planets. Ultimately, the time controller, and all Daleks on its ship, were dragged into a time warp thanks to Lucie Miller crashing a Dalek Saucer containing a bomb into the mine. (AUDIO: Lucie Miller / To the Death)
However, the Time Controller was saved from destruction by Kotris. (AUDIO: X and the Daleks) From then it oversaw the chasing of the Eighth Doctor and Molly O'Sullivan through time and space, (AUDIO: Fugitives) by using a relativity map and a Temporal Chamber to create a Space-time projector. Using retro-genitor particles implanted inside Molly, it and Kotris planned to destroy the Time Lords. (AUDIO: Tangled Web, X and the Daleks) After Straxus killed himself, he erased Kotris from history. The Dalek Time Controller's plans involving Kotris were therefore erased. The Dalek Time Controller was aware of the change in history while it occurred, and swore to Kotris before he was erased that he would destroy the Time Lords. (AUDIO: X and the Daleks)
The Dalek Time Controller oversaw the invasion of Nixyce VII, and created mines in the planet to create a Dalek superweapon. The Doctor detonated a bomb located on a nearby Dalek in the time controller's chamber, damaging the Time Controller and causing him to flee to his ship in orbit above the planet. (AUDIO: The Traitor) Rather than destroying the weapon, the Doctor asked for the Dalek Time Controller's help in defeating the Eminence, who posed a bigger threat to the Daleks than the Doctor. (AUDIO: Eyes of the Master) The Dalek Time Controller agreed, and used the weapon to destroy the Eminence fleet. (AUDIO: Time's Horizon)
