Big Screen Films for Dr Who & the Daleks
on 14 November 2010
Peter Cushing stars as the eponymous Doctor in battling his most feared and popular enemies the Daleks in these two films, Dr Who & the Daleks (1965) and Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD (1966). The first film is set on the Daleks' home planet Skaro and the second is located in London. For some viewers this may bring back memories of 45 years ago crowding into the local cinema to see Daleks in colour and to be captivated at what was then big production values. Now with the benefit of 21st century technology the films are dated, the special effects are poor and the acting leaving much to be desired. However, this is an opportunity to relive some of the delights and wonders of ones' youth and so enjoy. The accompanying documentary is worthy watching and makes this release a three star performance. Nice to see Bernard Cribbins who recently appears in the Dr Who television series with David Tennant.
