Doctor Who Re-Viewed: Peter Cushing's 'Dalekmania' movies

22 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Digital Spy presents Doctor Who Week - seven days of special features celebrating the return of the world's favourite sci-fi series, and the arrival of a brand new Doctor on August 23.

"Allow me to introduce myself. I am Dr. Who."

Dr Who. Daleks - Invasion Earth: 2150 Ad (1966)

As far as odd surnames go, 'Who' has to be up there. But that's just one of many examples where the treatment of the subject matter differs between the two 1960s Doctor Who movie spinoffs and their original TV counterparts. Made to capitalise on the rampant 'Dalekmania' and starring Peter Cushing as the time traveller, a contemporary re-viewing provides a fascinating trip back to a comparatively innocent era where the draw of seeing "motorised dustbins" from Skaro in widescreen Technicolor was a big selling point.

William Hartnell's grouchy alien and his maladjusted granddaughter Susan from the BBC series have been replaced by »
