Trivia

This film was part-financed by the Quaker Oats Company, then-makers of the "Sugar Puffs" cereal, in return for an exclusive merchandising deal. Quaker combined with the film team in a £50,000 campaign which included 3½ million boxes of "Sugar Puffs" advertising the film, and a competition to win toy Louis Marx Daleks or the top prize, a full-size Dalek prop. Several posters for "Sugar Puffs" cereal are visible during the movie, an early (for a British film) example of product placement. Two special screenings for grocery traders were also arranged via the deal with executive producer Joe Vegoda. See more »

Goofs

Observing the Dalek saucer, the Doctor notes that it seems to be landing in the vicinity of Sloane Square. There is then a lengthy shot in which it is shown to be continuing in level flight for what must be several miles over London (with no apparent intention of landing) before we finally get a close-up of it descending.

The Daleks threaten the Earth
26 April 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Daleks Invasion Earth: 2150 AD is the second of the Dr Who movies starring Peter Cushing. I enjoyed this as much as I did the first, Dr Who and the Daleks.

The Doctor, his youngest grand-daughter, his niece and a copper use the Tardis to travel to the year 2150. When emerge they find London in ruins and what few humans are left are trying to avoid capture by the Daleks. The Doctor and the others start exploring and all split up. A flying saucer lands and the copper and the Doctor's niece end up in it. What the Dalaks do to humans once captured is turn them into the Robomen. Everybody gets reunited at the mine in Bedfordshire where the Daleks plan to use a magnetic bomb to blow up Earth's core and use it as a giant spaceship. The Daleks are eventually defeated after the bomb is diverted and the strong magnetic field causes the flying saucer to crash and explode. The Earth is saved.

This movie has a 1960's jazz music score throughout and the special effects are not too bad.

Now to the cast: as well as Peter Cushing returning, Roberta Tovey reprises her role as Susan, the Doctor's youngest grand-daughter. Jill Curzan plays his niece and Bernard Cribbins (The Railway Children) is the policeman, Tom. The movie also stars Andrew Keir (Quatermass and the Pit), Ray Brooks and Philip Madoc (He is the one who played the German U-boat Captain in the classic Dad's Army episode The Deadly Attachment).

Along with John Pertwee and Tom Baker, I think Peter Cushing is one of the best Dr Who's, although the current Doctor, Christopher Eccleston is good too.

Daleks Invasion Earth: 2150 AD is very enjoyable and is worth checking out.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
