Malpha was one of the representives of the Galactic Council in the Doctor Who serials, Mission to the Unknown and The Daleks' Master Plan who had allied themselves with the Daleks.
They planned to conquer the Solar System with the Daleks. In Mission to the Unknown, Malpha had a bigger presence but less so in The Daleks' Master Plan. When the Daleks fitted the Taranium core into their Time Destructor, they betrayed the council as they had exceeded their usefulness. However, they were released from confinement in the abandoned city by Sara Kingdom and Steven Taylor. Malpha escaped the planet Kembel in his ship and warned his people about the Daleks.
