With a budget just barely above that of the TV show, this is a big screen, color remake of first Dalek adventure, which doesn't expand the story, while removing most of the elements that made the television show so intriguing. The Doctor is just some scientist from earth, as is his granddaughter Susan. Barbara is now also the doctor's granddaughter and Ian is her suitor. Peter Cushing does give an interesting interpretation of the the Doctor. Hard core fans of the television series may want to view this, everyone else beware.
A slow, depressing meditation on loss and legacy. If you can get through the snail-slow pace of the film (Mara Rooney eats a whole pie on the floor in a static shot without a single cut), it eventually pays off, but it will try your patience. Unless you are into artsy movies, avoid at all costs. Interesting characters would have helped.
