Product Description

A 2 disc box set dedicated to Doctor Who's iconic arch nemeses, including the two classic Dr Who feature films from the Amicus stable - Dr Who and the Daleks from 1965, and the following year's Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. The set also includes the definitive Dalek documentary 'Dalekmania'.

From the Back Cover

Dr Who and the Daleks - 1965; Based on a story from the BBC TV serial Doctor Who. An inventor Dr. Who accidentally activates his new project, the Tardis, a time machine disguised as a police telephone box. Dr. Who, his two grand-daughters, and Barbara's boyfriend Ian are transported through time and space to the planet Skaro, where a peaceful race of Thals are under threat of nuclear attack from the planet's other inhabitants: the robotic mutant Daleks.

Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D - 1966; Again, based on an original story from the BBC TV Series, Dr. Who and his companions arrive on Earth in the year 2150 AD, to discover that the planet has overrun by Daleks and the population enslaved. The time travellers assist human resistance groups to foil the Daleks' plan to mine the Earth's core.

4.0 out of 5 stars mummy is behind the sofa again! 20 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase
I saw these Dalek films 35 years ago and peed my pants...the bit where the Dalek comes out of the Thames still sends shivers down my spine...and my boys aged 3 and 5 watch it ALL the time. I half expected them not to like the old films because they are SO old. How wrong I was! These two films have truly stood the test of time and will keep your dalek fans happy on many a rainy afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars We all have our Doctors, we all have our Daleks 22 July 2011
By S. D. Spicer VINE VOICE
Peter Cushing is often the forgotten Doctor, but in reality he's one of the best. I liked him a lot and seeing these films again I still do.

Here we have the two Dalek films from the 1960s, when Daleks were to be feared rather than the blobby plasticy creations of late. I can remember being riveted to the screen when I saw these as a 10 year old. The first because we got a glimpse of the Dalek creature (too hideous to be seen...) , and the second because it is just scary. The Daleks are big, intense and not stupid.

The second film in the series, Invasion Earth is the better one if you can ignore Bernard Crippens hamming it up as the comedy turn. Here the Daleks are truly menacing and the the whole film rolls on much more grippingly than the slow burn TV series on which it is based.

Now when I watch these films again, my heart still beats a bit faster even through I have seen these many times. They say you date yourself by 'your' doctor - for the record - Hartnell - but I think you also have your Dalek and the film Daleks are mine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dr. Who 9 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase
Two very camp classic Dr. Who films at a very good price.

They come in a regular Dvd case with a nice glossy slipcase outer cover. The Dvd's no longer come with the trading cards and poster(advertised at time of purchase), but at this price I didn't mind.

As for the films, I've never seen them look better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dalek Invasion Of The Cinema: 1960s A.D 21 Jun 2011
By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Doctor Who has weathered differing levels of popularity over the decades and cemented itself as a British institution. When the series first aired in the 'sixties, it was well received but surprisingly, the biggest stars weren't The Doctor and his TARDIS assistants - instead the runaway stars were the pepperpot-esque baddies who appeared in the second story of the first series. The Dalekmania which followed meant that a big screen outing for the Daleks seemed financially viable and fans could finally see the nations favourite aliens in full colour.

Instead of a new story, the first Dalek film was a remake of the first Dalek TV serial. The same treatment was given to the second film, this time it was a remake of the classic "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" story which featured in the second series. It's clear that the production values are much better for the big-screen, the wobbly sets are gone, coloured lights flash on consoles and the visual effects don't look home made. It is well known among Doctor Who fans that the film is not part of established Doctor Who canon, this is independent to the TV series and Peter Cushing plays "Dr. Who"; a role based on the BBC character rather than The Doctor himself.

The first film wastes no time and only six minutes in, we are introduced to the main characters as they travel in the TARDIS to a strange land populated by Thals, their bright eye makeup making the most of Technicolour! It's also not long before the Daleks make an appearance, though it's not quite as scary as the cliff-hanger from the TV series where they first made an appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dalek experience 20 Jan 2009
Two wonderful films - Roy Castle showing "If you wanna be the best, if you wanna beat Daleks...Extermination's what you need!"(Apologies to Record Breakers)and Bernard Cribbins making a prophetic early appearance before being regenerated many years later as Donna Noble's grandfather.
Just to add a bit of colour, can I say that, back in 1964/5,I saw the iconic scene from Daleks:Invasion Earth 2150 AD when the Dalek emerges from the Thames being filmed. I was a young lad at the time on my way back home from a cub scouts morning (ah, bless!) and went past the filming area at some old riverside warehouses around the Battersea area. My father and I watched the Dalek being repeatedly dragged out of the river at the end of a thin wire until they got the scene just right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia trip 13 Jun 2011
I remember these films as a child and purchased this as I imagine other people have done as a trip down memory lane.I stopped watching doctor who many years ago and the last one I watched I believe was a christmas one with Kylie Minogue with a sort of spoof titanic in space story.Thought it might be amusing as a titanic buff.The fact Ms Minogue was in it is another story lol.What struck me was the bad acting and limp cgi effects that supposedly make Dr Who so wonderful these days.Other reviews of this put the old films down purely because these effects are missing and so called poor acting.If thats the case nothing has changed.Enjoy these films for what they are

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dalek movies 4 Feb 2010
CLASSIC!!,,,,
Spent a wonderful afternoon with my son, watching peter cushing save the universe ,,twice.
While not being recognized as a 'real' dr who movie Peter Cushing is, in my oppinion, a great one.
Fans of the new Dr Who TV shows will enjoy seeing bernard Cribbins as a much younger actor as opposed to his current role as donna noble's grandfather, lets see the script writers work that one out,,lol
A Treasure for all Who fans
