When Dr. Who shows his time machine TARDIS to the clumsy Ian, who is boyfriend of his granddaughter Barbara, he accidentally transport them and Dr. Who's granddaughter Susan to somewhere in space and time. They explore the spot and see a city; Dr. Who fakes a leak in the fluid and they go to the city to seek mercury to refill the component. They are captured by the Daleks and soon they learn that a war between Daleks and Thals has destroyed the planet. Further they are exposed to radiation and only the Thals have the antidote. The Daleks send Susan to find the cure and she meets the Thal Alydon that has the antidote and wants to negotiate with the Daleks to exchange for food. But the cruel Daleks want to destroy the Thals to rule the world.Written by

But, its so big in here and yet its so small from outside. How come?
In electro-connective theory, space expands to accommodate the time necessary to incorporate its dimensions.

This is a fair attempt at capturing the series on film. Missed the noise of the tardis though - this one was silent.
Not too sure about the daleks either. How did they build their cities? they don't really look cut out for labouring. And the way they were so easily defeated by a tribe of camp hairdressers wasn't so convincing. Loved the lava lights though, made the set look like a nineties bachelor pad.
Fortunately Roy Castle wasn't required to use his talents and we didn't get any tap-dancing or trumpet playing. Peter Cushing made a good doctor and the sets were all right in a pantomime sort of way. Won't be surprised to see a big Hollywood remake in the not too distant future
