In the Season 4 finale, Davros and Daleks teleported Earth into Medusa Cascade. They were going to use Earth as a part of transmitter to demolish the reality itself.

What was the point of invading the Earth?

1 Answer 1


The Earth is a well known hub of anti-Dalek activity. Note that their primary targets seem to be facilities and locations that have shown an ability to defend the Earth against alien assaults in previous serials:

  • Unit HQ
  • The Valiant
  • Torchwood
  • New York (HQ of the United Nations)
  • London (the site of the Torchwood anti-Sycorax weapon seen in "The Christmas Invasion")

They expend a considerable amount of time looking for the Doctor

DAVROS : I mean, is there news of him?

SUPREME DALEK : Negative! No reports of Time Lord. We are beyond the Doctor's reach!

They also need to "harvest" a considerable number of humans (including Jackie, Mickey and Rose) to test their destructo-ray on.
