After his capture on Necros, Davros is destined to face the justice of the Daleks. He sits alone, isolated in his cell. His creations will no longer listen to him. But out of the darkness comes a voice... Davros is no longer alone in his torment. Before he faces trial on the planet Skaro, he must go through an ordeal that will force him to the very limits of his sanity. But where do his true loyalties lie? How will he face the future?

- This story is set directly after the Sixth Doctor television adventure, Revelation of the Daleks when Davros was taken to stand trial on Skaro. He was their creator, but they turned on him. At the end of The Davros Mission, a begrudging alliance is formed. It continues in The Curse of Davros, until the end when he gains full control over a faction of Daleks. After that, the two Dalek sides go to war against each other.
- Further trial scenes with Davros and his Daleks are featured in the I, Davros audio series. It is not certain whether these scenes are from the same trial heard here.
