Product Description

Product Description

The first big screen spin-off from the television series featuring the infamous 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.

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...

DR. WHO & THE DALEKS [1995] [50th Anniversary] [Blu-ray] The First Ever Doctor Who Feature Film! Now On The Big Screen In COLOUR!

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!

FILM FACT: It is based on the second serial of the British science fiction Doctor Who television programme, The Daleks, produced by the BBC. Filmed in Technicolor, it is the first Doctor Who story to be made in colour and in a widescreen format. The television series continued to be made in black-and-white until 1969 and not in widescreen until the revival of the series in 2005.

This Film I remember seeing this at our pictures when I was a boy in 1965 my mother got chased by a Dalek in Manchester Lewis's store
the Perspex corridors were set up in the shop and one movie red Dalek, this film I have had on VHS and DVD and the Blue ray version is very well restored and sharp one thing about Blue Ray Discs is that they cannot be scratched they have a protective coating on them so in affect I have preserved this film in my collection for life time enjoyment This film is in big colour and the Daleks themselves are bigger than on the Telly and the voices were done by Peter Hawkins even though it does not say on the film credits the music is brilliant a lot of people do not like background music in films but to me the music is moving and well composed I quite like the Dalek city and the Thals and the story is as it appears on the telly I am glad I have finally managed to purchase this and the delivery was speedy I shall treasure this film

Bought this for my 3 going on 9 grandson and he loves it. Had to get him a Dalek so that he could join in with the film. Remember
watching this when it first came out, before all the special effects of today's films.

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.

I feel I have to put a disclaimer here. I am not a hardcore Dr. Who fan, I grew up with Pertwee and Baker and loved them, after that I hit puberty and the good Doctor left my own personal universe. So basically I want to say that I view this picture as a film lover, not as some serio Dr. Who fan. Thus I ask, just how did Amicus get it so wrong?

Oh it really isn't as awful as some "who" fans have painted it as, and by painted I mean spittle daubed venom! But it looks like Amicus have tried to reinvent Dr. Who about 25 years before he needed reinventing. I mean, I realise it's a show involving time travel, but Amicus' Tardis is just a bit too early! They have taken two of Britain's most beloved entertainers and made one a bumbling comedy side-kick (Castle as Ian), and the other a doddering old eccentric granddad type (Cushing as the Doctor). Fair enough Cushing's Doctor is a genius, we know and understand that, but if you take away the Tardis invention, then this could be any old geezer in a sci-fi movie.

Things are further muddied by lack of screen time for Cushing, he is strangely secondary here. It's a good job the two girls playing his nieces (Jennie Linden and Roberta Tovey) get good characterisations to work from, and that the Daleks are a colourful and dastardly foe, because Sir Peter of the Who is jostling for attention in a film that bears his character's name. The irritants continue when you reach the end credits and the action quota amounts to being very little. It's safe to say the stunt department and director Gordon Flemyng's camera were not required to work over time.

On the plus side. The production design, considering the low end budget, is visually impressive.
