Synopsis

A double bill of Dalek films accompanied by a documentary tribute. 'Doctor Who and the Daleks' (1965) is the first big screen spin-off from the television series featuring the infamous Daleks. Eccentric Earth inventor Doctor Who (Peter Cushing) is demonstrating his space/time craft, the TARDIS, to his niece's boyfriend, Ian (Roy Castle), when he manages to whisk them all of to the planet Skaro. There they encounter two races: the blue-skinned, peace-loving Thals, and the bio-mechanical Daleks. 'Dalek's Invasion Earth: 2150 AD' (1966) is the feature film sequel to 'Doctor Who and the Daleks', and is based on the the TV story 'The Dalek Invasion of Earth'. Peter Cushing reprises the role of the Doctor, who returns to a future Earth to find that the intergalactic warmongering Daleks have invaded. He joins the Earth resistance movement to help them save the planet. 'Dalekmania - Shooting the Daleks' (1995) is a nostalgic look back at the making of the Dalek movies. The documentary reveals the history of the Daleks from their mad publicity appearances to newly-discovered archive footage of the Doctor's enemies in action.
