This feeble sci-fi whimsy was the first big screen spin-off from the cult television series. Peter Cushing plays the good Doctor as a bumbling, grandfatherly eccentric. Roy Castle is the fool who inadvertently whisks the Tardis through the aeons and into the Daleks' backyard. The special effects are crude (the gadgetry looks as if it is made from papier mâché and the Daleks resemble tin pots with stuck on baubles), but despite the hints of metal fatigue in Milton Subotsky's script, it retains a kitsch, nostalgic appeal. (MFB No. 379)
