The Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith land in a field of giant sunflowers, near a small cottage. They have been here before. But the house is not empty this time – there are lights inside and the sound of someone playing music on the piano. As they watch from behind some nearby bushes, an old woman appears at one of the windows. She sees them but does nothing to stop their intrusion into her home. The Doctor knocks on the front door, then enters when it opens with no resistance. Inside they find furniture covered in sheets and dust everywhere; there is nobody else in sight.
The Doctor and Sarah Jane explore the house, finding that all the doors are locked. They hear a noise upstairs and go to investigate. The Doctor finds a bedroom with an old woman in it, lying in bed. She is very ill but still alive. The Doctor asks her about the Daleks, and she tells him that they will arrive tomorrow. She also warns him about something called ‘the Eve of the Daleks’. The old woman dies soon after this exchange, leaving the Doctor and Sarah Jane alone in the cottage on the eve of an invasion by the Daleks… Eve of the Daleks comes to BBC One on New year’s Day 2022 at 7 pm.

What is the story of Eve of the Daleks?
It’s a story about two people who go to investigate an old house on what seems to be their last night alive. They find out that there was once an elderly woman living inside it, but she died after warning them about something called “Eve of Dalek’s” before leaving only them alone in the house… Who goes up those stairs where they heard a noise coming from earlier and finds an old woman dying soon after this exchange with her illness. She also warns them about something called ‘the eve of Dalek’s’ which seems like it will become reality very shortly… What does Ben say?
The old woman’s face was white with terror. “Eve of the Daleks!”
she gasped. “You must leave – there’s not time to explain! Go to London – it will all be over by then!”
Polly looked at her incredulously. “What are you talking about?” she asked. But the old woman had already died.
Ben examined her closely but could find no trace to Polly as they’re leaving the house?“I don’t like it,” said Ben. “It gives me the creeps.”
They went back to the TARDIS and, a few minutes later, took off for London. As they left, they heard the sound of something moving upstairs. They ran outside as fast as possible but were too late – their enemy had escaped!
What are people saying about it?
The Doctor was sure that the Daleks were coming and he knew that they would be looking for him. He had to find a way to stop them before it was too late. Meanwhile, Polly and Ben were trying to figure out what was going on. They didn’t know who the old woman was or why she had given them such a warning.
