"While some revel in new-found personalities and their associated... Dysfunctions, I have dedicated myself to a new task."

The darkness shown on screen is no mistake. The lens slowly reels back to give some perspective on the location, which appears to be some generic sewer-based location. Or at least, somewhere which opens into it. Clearly, Davros no more requires a flat surface for mobility than his creations do. A fact which was demonstrated a long time ago.

The camera, however, is made to turn and the hum of the machine's motor can be heard as it does so.

"A world of mutation and assorted genetic detritus has an air of... Familiarity about it. Why, it's almost enough to remind oneself of home."

What can be made out, now, are a couple of figures labouring away on something in the darkness. To assume Davros' crippled state of being means he's beyond the ability to enact his will, is a fatal mistake. Either the hidden injection device in his chair which allows for mind-control of subjects, had never malfunctioned or he has fixed it. Now he's evidently quite capable of building things with this manual labour, because they're working away without protest or questions.

"How remarkable, the variety of tools a technologically advanced society can discard... Material which can easily be converted for another purpose. A greater purpose."

The lighting brightens for just long enough to make a deliberate show of what's being worked upon: The outer shell of a Dalek. Crude, bulky, but (as shown here, here and here) most definitely a Dalek... A Dalek with weapons of alarming size, too. Either they're of normal capacity and have to be made that large with what's available or it's a 'Special Weapons' version.

Either way, even for those who have seen them before, it's a terrifying new development; as well as being close to completion. Even those who can't receive a video feed, get a series of images alluding to this.

As is the glass tank with another captured mutant inside - possibly being readied to be converted into a proto-Dalek creature to pilot the machine.

Of course, it's entirely possible he's bluffing... That Davros hasn't been able to find what's necessary for such a construction project. But can anyone really take that frightening risk?

"I think the leadership of your planet is well aware of what I infer... And of how proficient I am in identifying the key infrastructure with which to... Maintain his limited dominance."

Soldiers could be redirected to search mile upon mile of tunnels, it's true. But Davros wouldn't be Davros if he wasn't prepared for that eventuality... What will the Master do?

"Your authority shall be relinquished immediately. Or you shall suffer the consequences."

Not that Davros cares about the freedom of the masses. But is aware that having the mob on your side, of appearing like a liberator, can be a powerful weapon, in itself.

Even you couldn't raise an army that quickly.

One would be quite sufficient, for now.

Hardly. You seem to forget what Time Lords are capable of.
