Trivia:
André Morell was offered the role of Wyler, but could not accept because he had signed to star in the four-part "Doctor Who" (1963) serial, "The Massacre" with William Hartnell, which clashed with the filming dates. The role of Wyler went to Andrew Keir. Coincidentally, Morell played Professor Bernard Quatermass in the original television version of "Quatermass and the Pit" (1958) while Keir played him in the film remake Five Million Years to Earth (1967).See more »

Quotes:
Dr. Who:Your bomb is designed to slide down this shaft, strike a fracture in the Earth's inner surface, and so release the magnetic core of our planet. But the fracture is near the meeting point of the magnetic influence of the North and South poles. One mistake, one deviation in the aiming of your bomb and enough magnetic energy will be released to destroy you.
Dalek:There will be no mistake! These prisoners are to be exterminated!
Dr. Who:One moment. You must listen to me. If you spare us, I can help you. I can show you how to neutralize this magnetism, so that your plan can be carried out with no danger to yourselves.

The Daleks threaten the Earth, 26 April 2005
Author: Chris Gaskin from Derby, England

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.
