I like the use of lava-lamps in the Daleks control room, groovy.

You really can't tell it was made in the sixties...

This is not a bad film. I watched it about 3 weeks ago! Daleks Invasion Earth is OK, but let down by the special effects. Still, a pleasent way to lose 85 minutes!

We've just stuck the DVD on. I was just wondering what it would be like if it became a proper film franchise and went on for years. I guess it could have gone one of three ways, either the film franchise carried on alongside the series and wasn't canon in the actual series, the films were so popular the BBC partnered with the filmmakers and scrapped the television series or the films didn't do so well and they didn't bother making anymore.

I quite enjoy it, the daleks look great

Mind you the countdown at the end is silly, it must take two minutes to get from 24 seconds to 13 seconds lol!

The Dalek time unit is the REL, which is probably short for relativistic. Having few emotions, you see, they have to ACTUALLY change the unit of time passing to fit the ongoing situation. Time flies when you're having fun.

Does anyone know if there's any likelyhood that the movies will see a blu ray release?

I was surprised earlier to find that they're only available on DVD.

That should fix the link, the closing bracket was outside the url tags.

Sadly Bradley Walsh was unavailable so it was cancelled.

Was it trying to copy Bond girl Ursula Andress's famous coming out of the water entrance in Dr No ?

I didn't realise there were mountains near Bedford.
Unless it was set in 'Pete Tylers parallel universe' ?

At the time that sequence was filmed for the series the Thames was fairly polluted - there were a number of precautions made in case he swallowed any water.

(I believe the reason why the Dalek was in the water was explained in the book, but it is a long time since I read it.

BBFC have put their thoughts of the script from 4/2/65 online-

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/sites/default/...s/Dr%20Who.pdf

Close ups of the hideous reptile like creature should be avoided!
