This review is from: Dr Who: The Dalek Collection (Dr Who And The Daleks & Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150AD + Dalekmania documentary) [DVD]  (DVD)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.

Mr. M. Bloomfield says:
Your memory must be false. A Dalek would never allow itself to be dragged anywhere on a piece of string. It would surely have got a little angry.

Pedro, It's very interesting to read your comments there, especially about seing some of the filming in the Battersea area. I recall seeing these films at the Pictures when I was a kid in the sixties. I was 7 in 1965 (although for some reason I thought I was a bit older) and found them very scary! I recal too in those days that seeing anything on the big screen in colour added hugely to the experience as there were only black and white tv sets available for the home. An experience that modern kids just don't experience nowadays of course, although I read somewhere very recently that there are something like 50 000 + Black and white sets still licensed in Britain. I much prefer the older excentric types as the Doctor eg. Hartnel and Cushing though my favourite is still Tom Baker. The less said about the so-called 'middle three' Doctors though, the better! It's funny in that I really disliked Patrick Troughton in the role for many years, but have actually found myself in recent times revising my view of him in the role and warming to his effort. The Daleks are still my favourite baddies but I wonder if they are rust proof?!
