2013 marks the centenary of celluloid legend of film and TV great Peter Cushing, as well as the 50th Anniversary of the first appearance on television of the legendary Timelord.

To honour this, STUDIOCANAL are delighted to announce the release on DVD and Blu-ray of both the only cinematic incarnations of the Doctor’s adventures, suitably putting him against his most infamous foes, The Daleks: DR WHO & THE DALEKS and DALEKS’ INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. Both have been digitally re-mastered and are available in HD for the first time.

These releases are accompanied by a host of specially created new extras including a look at the restoration work and brand new interviews.

With Peter Cushing, Roy Castle, Jennie Linden, Roberta Tovey

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 the first time Doctor Who was ever seen in colour!

British film legend Peter Gushing 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 companions 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 Thais and a life form heavily mutated by radiation, encased in protective machines. A merciless force of destruction known as The Daleks!

Extras:

  • Audio Commentary with Roberta Tovey and Jenny Linden
  • Dalekmania
  • Restoring Dr. Who And The Daleks (new!)
  • Interview With Gareth Owen (new!)
  • Stills Gallery/Trailer

Directed by Gordon Fleming and now fully restored, DALEKS’ INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. (1966) stars Peter Gushing in his return to the big screen as British TV’s most iconic sci-fi hero, Doctor Who.

The earth of 2150 AD is a desolate and hostile ruin of a planet, crumbling at the edge of civilisation, slowly disappearing into the darkness of space.

For the future of planet earth now belongs The Daleks, a destructive arm of alien invaders who have turned the human race into cowering slaves.

Meanwhile deep within the London Underground a group of resistance freedom fighters are planning an attack. But there’s only one man who could possibly help them succeed in destroying their extra terrestrial enemies and take back control of planet earth. A man of mystery, a man of time and space, a man known only as… The Doctor.

      Bit annoyed as I shop in Sainsburys and have done for the last 25 years that they would not reserve me a copy in my local shop. As it was, I could see Inferno and 7.2 but no Dalek films behind the counter…

      I went to Sainsburys today and didn’t have any of any version. No where seems to have this set, so you did well to get it.
