It took me many years to forgive this film for the many inconsistencies between it and the TV series that inspired it. But I did, and have warmed to it over the years. Whereas the first Dalek story, both on the big screen and the small screen was an adventure story, pure and simple, Terry Nations original scripts allows for this to be a science fiction film in the classic style. It may be blasphemy to some, but I have watched this film many more times then I have the original TV story. It manages to condense a six part serial into 1 and a half hours, and looses nothing in the screen adoption.Mention has to be made of the transfer, it is perfection, this is the best quality print I have ever seen of it, and the audio track is just brilliant. Fans of both Doctor Who and Peter Cushing must add this to their collections.

This film was as good as I remembered it. After seeing it on TV many years ago it always stuck in my mind so when I saw it on amazon I decided to buy it and I am so glad I did it did not disappoint it is still a great watch and the passing years have not changed my opinion on this film in fact like a fine vintage wine it has improved over time now adding nostalgia to its strengths. In my opinion peter cushion makes a fine Dr Who and the Daleks have always been my favourite enemy of the doctors. A great film well worth adding to any collection, 5 stars and well deserved in my opinion.

Its certainly worth watching and enjoyable but the black and white original episode with William Hartnell as the the Doctor is far superior. This just doesn't really have much of a Doctor Who feel to it apart from the Daleks.

Definately one of the best sci-fi movies ever made, and in the full English style. Peter Cushing and Bernard Cribbins are great. Funny and exciting ! I thoroughly recommend it.

A Bernard Cribbins commentary would have been very welcome.
