This was a Peter Davidson episode where the Tardis lands in the warehouse district of London. The Daleks have opened a time corridor from the future where they are storing lethal samples of the virus that the Movellans are using against them. Guarding these samples are a group of brainwashed clones the Daleks have created.
Meanwhile, back in the future, the Daleks assault a spacestation which is holding Davros in deep freeze. After a brutal battle to take the ship using lasers and mutilating poison gas, the Daleks rescue Davros.
But Davros has ideas of his own, and uses some sort of device to reprogram some of the clones and Daleks to make them loyal to him. Then he launches a civil war against the other Daleks and clones.
The Doctor tries to kill Davros during this mess, but lacks the resolve to do so. Since the Daleks are all killing each other off, however, there's little he has to do.
At the end Davros is apparently killed by the virus and the space station he's on is apparently blown up. I say apparently because Davros returns in a later episode, with little explanation of how he survived these things.
Because this was a heavy action episode, this was one of the best episodes, despite the presence of the annoying Tegan and the dull Turdlough.
