Why has Zoe Heriot been having nightmares about the Daleks? Who is the Doctor, a mysterious man from her past? When an evil scientist hijacks her mind to control a galaxy-conquering weapon, Zoe must stop him. First, she and the Second Doctor will face an enemy they had thought destroyed forever.
The Doctor reassures Zoe some time after this adventure that the Daleks have now really met their final end at last, but Zoe is sceptical as he has said this before. (TV: The Evil of the Daleks)
In between the events of The Evil of the Daleks and Fear of the Daleks, the Doctor already had an encounter with the Daleks in which they confirmed they survived the Dalek Civil War and defeated the rebels. (COMIC: Bringer of Darkness)
