The Emperor Dalek is the ruler of the Dalek race, ruling from an immobile location in Dalek City on the planet Skaro (home of the Daleks).

The Emperor Dalek appears in the Second Doctor 1967 episode, "The Evil of the Daleks." The Daleks kidnap the Doctor to force him to isolate "the human factor" that enables the human race to repeatedly defeat them. Completing his experiment, however, the Doctor also creates three "human Daleks" designed to wipe out the Skaaran Daleks -- if he can get them to Skaro at the proper place in time...

Of the seven episodes that make up this serial, only the fourth is still in existence. The rest were destroyed by the BBC to save room in their archives. (Episodes one and three to six were wiped in August 1968, and episode seven wiped in September 1969.)
