Despite bearing the credit "An AARU Production", this film (and its forerunner Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965)) was made entirely by Amicus. AARU received the sole production credit as part of a co-finance deal with Amicus, which felt it couldn't afford to make a movie of this scale by itself. See more »

Some versions of the film open with the credits sequence before switching to Tom's night-time street patrol. The original version opens with the raid, then the titles, then Tom's awakening in TARDIS. 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.
