Screen legend Peter Cushing (The Skull, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Madhouse) plays everyone’s favorite Timelord, and having invented the TARDIS, a strange machine capable of traveling 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 the Thals and a life form heavily mutated by radiation, encased in protective machines… a merciless force of destruction known as the Daleks!

Now fully restored, Dr. Who and the Daleks, directed by Gordon Flemyng (The Split, Great Catherine), 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 color! Screenplay by Milton Subotsky (They Came from Beyond Space), based on the original BBC TV serial by Terry Nation (The Avengers).

    Would be nice if they were sold together in a set…seems a bit steep for me to pay $40 to get both films and somehow pay for the Dalekmania doc twice. I want to get these on blu (a first here in the US), but I will wait until the prices go down or they package them together in a better deal.

    What is Mr. “Dalek Book” Dalek doing here? Always a pleasure to see him, but a bit odd.

      Looks like he’s falling off the ledge and begging his red mate to save him.

      He is dead now. Even a Dalek can’t survive a that fall! Can you imagine a Dalek screaming and it’s falling. It would probably sound like ‘eAeEaeEzeaezdaeaeEae’ or something like that (: I am very funny.

    One of the Biggest selling points of these, in the UK. Is Mark Ayers has done a complete upgrade to the soundtracks, which have had so many issues over the years.

    But They never seem to use this as a selling point. These are for the US market as we got the Blu ray versions (.without 2020 upgrades/extras ). A few years ago. I doubt these will get a Region B release, as the previous ones are still viable.

    Shame Really.
