From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

The Time Destructor was a unique superweapon developed in the 40th century.



A small device, easy enough to carry, the Time Destructor would only work once, until its taranium core exhausted itself. It could accelerate or reverse the flow of time, with devastating effect, as controlled by a switch. The TARDIS offered immunity from the distortions to the time flow. Once the Time Destructor had burnt itself out, its effects reversed for the survivors, those not for those killed by it. (DW: The Daleks' Master Plan)


From 3950 until circa 4000, an operation on the planet Uranus mined an emm of taranium, enough to power the weapon. The Daleks then secretly obtained the taranium. The Daleks wanted to use the Time Destructor in their invasion of the Solar System in general and Earth in particular. (DW: The Daleks' Master Plan)

Mavic Chen implied that he had overseen the operation.

The Daleks kept the Time Destructor on a secret city on Kembel, reputedly the most dangerous planet in the universe. The Doctor stole the taranium core and created a non-functional replica of it. Mavic Chen and the Supreme Dalek attempted to test the weapon on Trantis, then found that, without a functional core, it would not work.

Eventually, after chasing the Doctor and his companions through time and space, the taranium core was retrieved by the Daleks and re-installed. The Dalek Supreme ordered the Time Destructor placed in the flagship of the Dalek fleet. Meanwhile, the Doctor returned to Kembel, stole the Time Destructor and activated it in order to destroy the Daleks and their base. Fleeing the complex, they activated the Destructor. Time on Kembel began to advance at unnatural speed. This affected the vegetation, which slowly began to die and disappear, the Doctor himself and his Human companion Sara Kingdom most of all. The Daleks themselves remained unaffected. Sara aged to death, decayed into a skeleton and died as the planet turned into a lifeless wasteland.

With the reversal of the Time Destructor, the Daleks began at last feeling the effects, and reverted to helpless mutant embroyos without their shells. With the exhaustion of the taranium core, the Time Destructor turned into rusted junk. (DW: The Daleks' Master Plan)
