I've long since given up trying to understand the Dalek history/timeline (in fact, I think I gave up in the 80s). I just enjoy watching them turn up and yelling EX-TER-MI-NATE.
I would like the Time Lords back though. Actually, I'd really like a Time Lord/Lady companion again like Romana was or, perhaps better, one as a recurring neutral/lawful-good type character (i.e. not the Master). I like it when the Doctor has an equal to play off (to some extent River has filled this role in the Smith era, as did Oswin for much of Asylum of the Daleks, and the TARDIS herself did in that one-off ep last year).
