The full synopsis reads:

In the Galactic Census, idyllic Strellin is recorded as a Grade Three planet – its inhabitants possessing neither advanced technology, nor knowledge of other worlds. Accordingly, Strellin is protected: landings by off-worlders are strictly prohibited. Unless, of course, those off-worlders are officials of the Galactic Census itself, come to investigate the origin of a mysterious sub-space signal – a signal no native of Strellin should be able to send…

Breaking all local by-laws, the time-travelling Doctor and his companion L/Wren Mrs Constance Clarke (AWOL) have only just landed on Strellin, too. But they and the Census officials aren’t the only off-worlders to have come here. Inside a nearby monastery, the monks of the reclusive Brotherhood of the Black Petal are guarding a strange and terrible secret. Something that might bring disaster not just to Strellin, but to every civilised world in the galaxy!

Doctor Who – Order of the Daleks stars Colin Baker and Miranda Raison as the Sixth Doctor and Mrs Constance Clark, as well as Coronation Street and TV royalty John Savident and the ever-present Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.

Speaking of TV royalty, the story is directed by Jamie Anderson, son of Gerry Anderson: creator of Stingray, Thunderbirds, Space 1999 and a host of other TV classics. It was written by Mike Tucker, Doctor Who novelist and FX wizard for both the classic and new Doctor Who series.
