Product Description

Directed by Gordon Flemyng and now fully restored, Dr. Who & The Daleks (1965) was the first big screen film adaptation of British TV’s most iconic sci-fi hero, and was the first time Doctor Who was ever seen in colour!

British film legend Peter Cushing plays everyone’s favourite Timelord, and having invented the TARDIS, a strange machine capable of travelling into other dimensions, the Doctor and his three young accomplices set forth on a quest through time and space. Their journey takes them into the dark, undiscovered depths of the universe and to the planet of Skaro. A primitive world devastated by nuclear war and populated by two warring species, a peaceful tribe known as Thals and a life form heavily mutated by radiation, encased in protective machines. A merciless force of destruction known as The Daleks!

Special Features:

- Dalekmania
- Restoring Dr Who & The Daleks
- Interview with author Gareth Owen
- Stills Gallery
- Trailer

Format:Blu-ray
With the television series celebrating its 50th anniversary of forcing children - and even some adults, I'm sure - to scurry behind the sofa or cower beneath one of its cushions, the release of STUDIOCANAL's DOCTOR WHO tie-in movies is adroitly timed and not only for that celebratory reasoning but for the fact that the Peter Cushing films are frequently derided and an intelligent analysis of their importance, not only within the DOCTOR WHO universe but assessing their role in British cinema in general.

Certainly, it would be remise of STUDIOCANAL to merely re-issue DR WHO AND THE DALEKS and DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. with new sleeve artwork and unceremoniously blow-off-the-dust in order to capitalise on DOCTOR WHO fan's whetted appetite in this anniversary year.

Sadly, that's what has happened, and whilst the two original print negatives have been meticulously cleaned & restored to their glorious Technoscope magnificence the releases have failed equally magnificently to provide a new array of intelligent, insightful, analytical `value added material' (VAM) or `Extras' that provides viewers with new appreciation.

And, regrettably, even the majority of the five VAMs are surreally obtuse and, seemingly, hurriedly written & filmed that result in an embarrassing mélange of mediocrity.

The VAM content could have been so much improved if - where's TARDIS when you need `her'? - STUDIOCANAL had researched and reviewed the `Extras' produced for BBC DVD's excellent DOCTOR WHO CLASSIC SERIES releases or had employed an independent production company, like London's PUP MEDIA LIMITED, to create an in-depth range of `Extras'.

Whilst that may seems harsh - yet honest - appraisal of the VAM, the RESTORING...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great film, average blu-ray. 6 Sep 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you already own the DVD version of this film, I'd suggest waiting a couple of years to pick up the blu-ray at a bargain price, as the HD transfer barely makes a difference. Honestly 'Dr. Who & The Daleks.' has never looked better, but clearly the source material was beyond improving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Who & The Daleks [Blu-ray] 2 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Dr. Who and the Daleks [1965], the first Doctor Who film and the first colour appearance of the Doctor, has finally been released on Blu-ray by Studio Canal to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the beloved sci-fi programme, which premiered on BBC Television in 1963. The release also coincides with the hundred year anniversary of famed actor Peter Cushing's birth, who stars here as the first non-canon Doctor. What does non-canon mean, in terms of the famous adventurer? Since the show first began with William Hartnell starring as the intelligent, if somewhat abrasive humanoid alien known as the Doctor, to date there have been eleven different actors appearing as the Doctor due to his ability to regenerate in different forms.

Peter Cushing is not considered part of that pantheon because his character, despite being known as Dr. Who, bears few things in common with the Doctor of the television show, such as his love of science, travel, and adventure. Specifically, Cushing's Doctor is a human, not an alien, whose surname just happens to be Who. Despite also featuring the Doctor's most infamous nemeses, Dr. Who and the Daleks is not an official Doctor Who film, but rather an attempt by British studio Amicus to continue competing with Hammer Studios. The two studios often ran neck to neck with horror films and adventure movies, and this film was Amicus's attempt to compete with Hammer's more family-friendly pirate and dinosaur-themed adventure films. Other than an intelligent, science-oriented character named Dr. Who, the villainous Daleks, and the Doctor's T.A.R.D.I.S. time vessel, Dr. Who and the Daleks bears almost no relationship to the Doctor Who Television Series.
The Film was Co-written by Amicus founder Milton Subotsky and Doctor Who scribe and Dalek creator Terry Nation, Dr.

Peter Cushing throws off his Hammer House of Horror charactors to play a loveable Doctor .... such a change from William Hartnell.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
For a bid screen Dr Who adventure I found it never came close to the original TV series and had very poor visual effects.
