Cushing plays Dr. Who with amiable gravity.
The settings are moderately imaginative in a tacky sort of way...
Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 AD, the sequel, is even better, but the two Who films still make an engaging kiddie matinee double bill.
I can't recommend it to Peter Cushing fans either as it is hardly his finest hour and he is in no way centre stage.
It's colourful, kiddie-friendly stuff, of course, but the Daleks - taller, chunkier and, obviously, more colourful than those previously seen on TV - have never looked better
No wonder people don't talk about Dr Who and the Daleks any more.
The biggest problem with these scenes is that few of the actors seem properly scared, a factor perhaps influenced by censors who, at the time, had to be patiently persuaded that the film would not be too frightening for children.
However, despite the many faults, it's still a fun ride for both the uninitiated and die-hard fans alike.
Although it was made to attract a new audience, this is a movie that's really only ever going to be of interest to fans of the original Doctor Who series. Its entertainment value to those unfamiliar with the show is bound to be limited at best.
A film not only for children but for adults who are undemanding.
A patchy piece of juvenile science fiction. The settings are quite effective in a Christmas pantomime way, while the Daleks themselves make admirable villains.
Cushing is Dr. Who, a time lord, and he and his companions travel through time and space in his time machine, the Tardis.
"The Daleks" was a serial from the most popular BBC series that is an absolute television classic. Doctor Who and the Dalkes is unfortunately inferior. There isn't any deep development into the character of The Doctor in this film. Each and every doctor has its own unique personality. I didn't feel it though in this film. The action sequences dont really excite and I couldn't really find myself caring about what happens to his companions in this adaption.
