This was the first of Dr Who's appearances on the big screen. The doctor was played by Peter Cushing in both of the movies and some say he is the best actor ever to play the role. He certainly makes a good Doctor. Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 AD followed in 1966.
The Doctor, who is showing his two grand-daughters and the eldest's boyfriend the TARDIS end up on a strange planet after the boyfriend accidentally pushes the go lever. They see a city and that is when the Daleks appear. We learn of the war between them and the good people of the planet, the Thals and that the Daleks plan to finish them off. After being held as prisoners by the Daleks, the Doctor and the others help the Thals to defeat them and they eventually succeed. After saying their goodbyes, the Doctor and the others manage to get back Earth, but not home...
The Daleks look quite good in this movie which is quite creepy in parts, especially the forest scenes. The movie has a good score too.
As well as horror legend Peter Cushing, the rest of the cast includes Roy Castle (Record Breakers), Jennie Linden and Roberta Tovey as the grand-daughters and Barry Ingham (A Challenge For Robin Hood).
If you are a Dr Who and sci-fi fan, Dr Who and the Daleks is certainly worth viewing. Excellent.
