This technology has been falling to Earth for centuries. All it took was the right mind to use it properly. Oh, the advances I've made from alien junk. You have no idea, Doctor. Broadband? Roswell. Just last year my scientists cultivated bacteria from the Russian crater, and do you know what we found? The cure for the common cold. Kept it strictly within the laboratory of course. No need to get people excited. Why sell one cure when I can sell a thousand palliatives?
~ Van Statten while torturing the Doctor.

Henry Van Statten is the secondary antagonist in the Doctor Who episode "Dalek". He was the CEO of the American corporation GeoComTex and a collector and exploiter of alien technology, as well as the billionaire owner of the Internet in 2012. He owned a secret underground museum in Utah known as "The Vault" where he stored his alien tech, including a badly-damaged Dalek believed to be the last one in existence.

He was portrayed by Corey Johnson, who also played the Church Leader (Kingsman: The Secret Service) in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Biography

As head of GeoComTex, Henry van Statten had enough influence to sway the course of the next presidential elections.

Van Statten had been collecting extraterrestrial artefacts like a head of a Cyberman or and arm of a Slitheen on the grey market for years, buying bits and pieces of alien technology at auctions and then reverse engineering them to create "new" technologies which he would then exploit commercially. He claimed to "own" the Internet, and said that broadband was derived from technology scavenged from the Roswell crash. He kept these artefacts in a private collection, inside a bunker called the Vault more than fifty floors below ground in Utah near Salt Lake City.

Sometime between 2006 and 2012 by auction, van Statten acquired a living but unresponsive Dalek who had survived the Last Great Time War. He called it a "Metaltron". Van Statten tried to make the Dalek talk through torture but all it did was 'scream'.

In 2012, the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler arrived in the Vault in response to a distress signal, unaware that the signal came from a Dalek. At this time, Diana Goddard, van Statten's personal assistant, and Adam Mitchell, a scientist, worked by him.

Van Statten captured the Doctor instead, to examine his Gallifreyan physiology and had plans to make use of his binary vascular system in a marketing venture, branding it as his own creation through a patent.

When the Dalek freed itself, he gave the Doctor free rein to deal with it. By the time events came to a conclusion, 200 GeoComTex personnel had died and the Dalek had self-destructed. Goddard took charge at this point and ordered that van Statten be taken away, mind-wiped and dumped on the streets, "somewhere beginning with an 'S'," due to him causing the death of so many personnel while in due time his collection would be cemented over.

Personality

Intelligent, arrogant and selfish, Van Statten treated his employees as though they were chattel, to the point of mind-wiping them when they left his employ so they could not betray his secrets. He also displayed no concern for their safety and even when there was a deadly Dalek on the loose, he ordered them not to cause any damage to it and was willing to let them die just to keep the Dalek in one piece. Eventually, he decided to help the Doctor stop the Dalek but only did so to protect himself, telling the Doctor that the only reason he was helping was because he didn't want to get killed. Van Statten had a wry, dark sense of humour and treated other humans, and aliens especially, as things he could use to amuse himself or turn to his advantage. The Doctor compared him to Davros, the Dalek creator. However van Statten was not entirely heartless and apologized to the Doctor when they thought that Rose Tyler had been killed.
