I think Oswin was what the Daleks wanted to be saved from.
I’ve mentioned before how it doesn’t make sense that the Daleks would imprison their crazier individuals on this planet, inside a nigh-impenetrable shield, and have the controls for said shield on the planet itself. Having the controls on the planet is the kind of thing you do when you want to keep things from getting in, not keep them from getting out. IMHO.
But then we have Oswin, who undergoes a full conversion to Dalek, but doesn’t lose her humanity, or even realize she’s been converted. Oswin, who can get inside the Dalek hive memory and erase their greatest enemy.
Which would, were I a Dalek, scare the living hell out of me.
I think they were terrified that Oswin would get off the planet, and her ‘insanity’ would infect the rest of them. I think they were terrified that her individuality might be catching.
