Reviews

A double bill of big-screen outings for Doctor Who, as played by Peter Cushing. This Doctor differs from his television counterpart in that he is an Earth inventor, not a Time Lord. In 'Doctor Who and the Daleks', Eccentric Earth inventor Doctor Who (Peter Cushing) is demonstrating his space/time craft, the TARDIS, to his niece's boyfriend, Ian (Roy Castle), when he manages to whisk them all of to the planet Skaro. There they encounter two races: the blue-skinned, peace-loving Thals, and the bio-mechanical Daleks. In 'Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.' the Doctor returns to a future Earth to find that the intergalactic warmongering Daleks have invaded. He joins the Earth resistance movement to help them save the planet.

This is a brief and mainly technical review of Doctor Who - Daleks Limited Collector's Edition (2-Film Set) [Blu-ray].

Firstly, this set contains both Dalek films: DR. WHO AND THE DALEKS and DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. Rather than packaging the two separate releases together in a slipcase, Studiocanal has chosen to include each film in a single double-disc Blu-ray case with unique sleeve (as pictured) and matching cardboard O-ring.

Both films have been restored and look lovely. Don't expect 21st-century-looking quality. Colours are vibrant. A nice level of film grain is evident. And the soundtracks for each film are the original mono theatrical versions in PCM format; there is no pseudo 5.1 upmix here.

One of the bigger questions for fans will be whether the original pre-credits section of DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. is in the correct place. A number of releases and TV broadcasts have shifted it, thus beginning the film with the opening credits, often with an ugly jarring sound edit. I'm pleased to confirm that the pre-credits "smash-and-grab" sequence is in the correct place before the opening titles and the soundtrack is nice and intact.

Oh, and it goes without saying that both films are presented in their original Techniscope format. I haven't done a comparison with the original DVD release, but this set is definitely a worthy upgrade. The Dalekmania documentary is available on the first film's disc, and there are short interviews and restoration featurettes for each film.

Enjoy!

There's been a lot of discussion about the transfer of these two films onto Blu-ray. Certainly, they are not as colourful and saturated as previous television transmissions or VHS and DVD releases.

They are rather different in appearance to what we've seen before. However, the level of detail, and overall picture quality is quite remarkable!
I can whole heartedly recommend the upgrade to the Blu-ray.

If you are uncomfortable with the colour palette, just turn up the colour on your monitor or TV screen. Also, the occasional light flare at the top and bottom of the film frame was apparently a drawback of the particular filming process used. I should imagine not too much could have been done about that for this release; unless the film image was zoomed in and cropped - and that's to be avoided at all costs!
Instead just think J.J. Abrams!

Yes, it is a shame about missed opportunities regarding interviews and extras.
Yes, a pity about the wrong Tardis and Daleks on the main Menu.
However, all things considered, if you love these two wonderful old movies do not hesitate to upgrade!

Gorgeous remastering of the two movies. They have never looked better. All the bonus content from the DVD releases plus some new extra features. Peter Cushing is wonderful as the Doctor.
This double Blu-ray deserves a place in every Doctor Who fans collection.

It's a pity that these 2 "cult classic" style Doctor Who films don't mesh with current Doc Who canon. The late great Sir Peter Cushing would have made a great addition to the regular pantheon of Baker, Baker, Troughton et all. As it is he does an amiable job of portraying "Doctor Who" to quote the given name to his version of the character in both films.
Though neither film can be considered as a great show due to the lack of any real pace and what action there is is limited to 'a bit of a scrap' with the Daleks in both shows. It's just the novelty of seeing such a great actor playing a role that these days is such an iconic part of not just science-fiction but television history that makes watching them a must for fans of the show.
