Dr Who and the Daleks, the first cinematic outing of the Doctor has been restored and is coming to DVD and Blu-ray this May!
The film, directed by Gordon Flemying, is an adaptation of the classic First Doctor serial The Daleks and sees Hammer Horror legend Peter Cushing taking on the role of an altogether more human Doctor in this revised telling of the Doctors origin tale.
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!
Special features for the release include:
- Dalekmania – a 1995 documentary about both this and Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 AD and the cult of the Daleks.
- Restoring Dr Who & The Daleks
- Interview with author Gareth Owen
- Stills Gallery
Check back later for news of the movie’s sequel, Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 AD, which is also being re-released.
