After Captain Jack breaks Doc out of not-Shada, they team up with the Scoobies for one last adventure as a fam
After the events of Resolution (of the Dalek), as the Fam obliviously indulged in 007-themed shenanigans, the corrupt half of the two people working at GCHQ handed the remains of the Reconnaissance Dalek to Mr Big of Spiders in Sheffield fame. Similar to GCHQ, captain of industry Jack Robertson’s company also only employs two people, and the not-Mr-Big half of them sets about revolutionising the Dalek to form the basis of a new prototype security drone with a suspiciously Dalek-sized hole in the middle.
One year later, the aforementioned corrupt official is now somehow-still-not-the-worst Prime Minister and about to level up Britain’s security by unilaterally rolling out said security drones nationwide. Obviously the Dalek has gotten itself cloned in the meantime, though, and with Doc still stuck in a space prison there’s no one around to prevent the Earth from getting invaded from within. Nope, spoke too soon. Actual Captain Jack just broke her out of there with a breakout ball and a quick dart of Harkness, OK, tension resolved.
(Ok, there WAS a podium…)
