Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the only two theatrically released Doctor Who films ever made, comes this ultimate Collector's Edition DVD containing both films (presented in their original widescreen versions), a Behind-the-Scenes Documentary, a Photo Gallery of images from the films, and the original Theatrical Trailers. Both films star acclaimed actor Peter Cushing as "Doctor Who", along with Roy Castle, Ray Brooks, Bernard Cribbins, Jennie Linden, Jill Curzon, Barrie Ingham and Roberta Tovey — and of course, the dreaded Daleks. Having wowed TV audiences since their original appearance in 1963, the Daleks first blasted their way onto the cinema screen in the summer of 1965, and have gone on to become one of the most enduring characters in sci-fi history.

Cover blurb:
His biggest adventures ever in the wildest collection of all!

For more than 40 years, his BBC-TV serial has captured the imagination of the entire world. But for millions of fans, nothing can match the most remarkable adventures in Doctor Who history: the two action-packed feature films starring the legendary Peter Cushing as the Doctor!

In DR. WHO AND THE DALEKS, the Doctor and his friends activate the T.A.R.D.I.S. for a wild ride to the mysterious planet Skaro where they must save a peaceful society from a diabolical Dalek siege. Then, in DALEKS — INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D., Doctor Who travels to the Earth's future and becomes trapped in a battle-ravaged world enslaved by Dalek overlords. Finally, celebrate the 30th anniversary of both these classic movies in DALEKMANIA, a fascinating and comprehensive documentary that captures the remarkable Doctor Who phenomenon at its swinging '60s peak!

Note:  This release was plagued with disc authoring issues — all affecting disc 1. Two different faulty versions were issued — one containing an audio problem making the sound very "echoey" and a second where the disc froze during chapter 16. When Warner Home Video were made aware of these problems, they issued a third version which fixed both problems and offered a free disc exchange via post to purchasers of the earlier versions.

Cover blurb:
The legendary Peter Cushing stars in the first thrilling big screen adventures of the beloved BBC serial that captured the imagination of the world. The Dr. Who DVD Collection not only includes 2 feature length films but Dalekmania, a fascinating and comprehensive documentary that captures the remarkable Dr. Who phenomenon at its swinging '60s peak!

DISC 1
Dr. Who and the Daleks

The Doctor travels through time and space in his TARDIS to Skaro, birthplace of the terrifying metal monsters, the Daleks! Skaro is a planet devastated by radioactive fallout, where the hideously mutated Daleks, safe in their metal city, plot to exterminate their age-old adversaries, the Thals, with a massive neutron bomb. Only the Doctor can save them!

DISC 2
Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.

Dr. Who is transported by the TARDIS to a desolated future Earth under cosmic attack by the vengeful Daleks. Whole continents have been wiped out and humans turned into Robomen — living dead slaves! Only the underground resistance movement stands in the way of total Dalek control and extermination!

Note:  New remastered edition, entitled The Dalek Collection — not to be confused with the two TV episode box sets of the same name: one from the classic series and one from the new series. The first release of this box set contained a trading card and poster — omitted in later reissues. Also, due to an authoring error, a 3-minute pre-credits sequence from the Dalekmania documentary is missing from this release.

Cover blurb:
Dr Who and the Daleks sees Dr Who travel through space and time in the Tardis to find himself on Skaro, the birthplace of his arch-nemeses, the Daleks! Skaro is a planet devastated by nuclear fallout, where the hideously mutated Daleks have to live in metal suites [sic] to survive, and where they plot the destruction of the planet's other life-form, the Thals, with a massive neutron bomb — the gentle Thals are doomed to extermination — unless the Doctor can save them!

Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD tells the thrilling story of the Doctor's battle to save the human population of the future from being enslaved as Robomen — doomed to serve the dreaded Daleks forever! The human race has never faced a greater danger as only the underground resistance movement stands in the way of total Dalek domination.

This special pack also includes Dalekmania, the definitive story of the Daleks.

Note:  The first movie contains the original English audio with Italian subtitles, while the second movie contains Italian dubbed audio. The DVD special features simply comprise the same English commentary tracks as the UK releases (with Italian subtitles) plus introductions to both films by Italian movie director Luigi Cozzi which are unique to these releases. A shortened version of the Dalekmania documentary is also included, retitled "Dr. Who Mania".
Trivia fact: the title of the second movie in Italian is Daleks: Il futuro tra un milione di anni which literally translates as "Daleks: One Million Years in the Future" — somewhat more futuristic than the story's 2150 AD setting! Did the translators take a trip in the TARDIS?

Note:  In a first for Doctor Who, Amazon supply this title as a "print-on-demand" DVD, in other words no stock is held and copies are manufactured one-at-a-time when an order is placed. This does mean that the discs are DVD-Rs rather than "proper" pressed DVDs — however the discs should play regardless in the vast majority of DVD players.
