The two Daleks films bring Dr. Who firstly to the nightmarish alien world of Skaro and then to a devastated future Earth
Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965) was the first big screen film adaptation of British TV’s most iconic sci-fi hero. It was also the first time Doctor Who was ever seen in colour. 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. The ancient inhabitants devastated Skaro in a nuclear war and now, millennia later, conflict is returning between their descendants. One group is a peaceful tribe known as Thals. But Skaro is also home to a life form heavily mutated by radiation, encased in protective machines – a merciless force of destruction known as the Daleks!
The second film, Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150ad sees Cushing return to the big screen. He discovers that the future of planet Earth now belongs to the Daleks. But deep within the London Underground a group of resistance freedom fighters are planning an attack. Can the Doctor help them succeed in destroying their extra-terrestrial enemies and take back control of Earth before it’s too late?
