The adventures in time and space of the Doctor, a Time Lord who changes appearance and personality by regenerating when near death, and is joined by companions in battles against aliens and other megalomaniacs.
Based on a story from the BBC TV serial "Doctor Who". Dr. Who and his companions arrive on Earth in the year 2150 AD, only to discover that the planet has been invaded and its population enslaved by the dreaded Daleks. The time travellers assist human resistance groups to foil the Daleks' plan to mine the Earth's core.Written by

The 1960s street where the opening robbery takes place is the same one on which Wyler and Susan encounter a Dalek patrol over 180 years later (the unchanged Mitchell Real Estate premises and Harris & Son shop are prominent in both sequences). In reality this was part of the backlot at Shepperton. See more »
The shot of the Dalek bomb detonating is actually an unused model shot of the Dalek saucer explosion. See more »

We'll have to bypass Watford. The place is full of Daleks!

Despite even being included in the original 1966 theatrical trailer, some prints now excise the five shots of a Roboman lassoing a rebel and David's knifing of a Roboman during the saucer attack. See more »
I first saw this movie as a kid back in the 70's.It was screened as a saturday morning feature during the easter holidays.In those days it was the only 'repeat' you were likely to get.I can never understand the general disdain shown to it by Dr Who fans.The production values are high and there's plenty to keep you entertained.I think fans are critical of it because of its comical element.Yes it's cheap,ham-acted at times and the special effects not-very-special,but so was the tv series.I love this movie because of,not despite,its cheesiness.
