Director Gordon Flemyng Starring: Peter Cushing, Roy Castle/Bernard Cribbins (MGM/UA)

The good Doctor's two big screen outings, filmed at the height of Dalekmania, naturally find him pitted against his most inhuman arch-enemies. Based upon Terry Nation's scripts for the first two Dalek TV series, the first film has the Doctor travelling to Skaro to aid the pacifistic Thala in their straggle against the dustbins from hell, while the second has Daleks fighting cheeky Cockneys in a decimated London. One can scarcely blame the Daleks for attempting to exterminate the Doc's assistants—Castle in the first movie, Cribbins in the second.

The lack of the theme tune and the truly tatty TARDIS are unforgiveable, but Cushing makes a creditable Doctor (better than many), the Daleks are wonderfully Technicolour, and their city is pretty groovy too. As for Thal fashion (3-inch-wide rainbow mascara and gold Beetle wigs), it's certain to catch on eventually. What time/space is it now? • 6
