Dalek Invasion of Earth 2150

Peter Cushing plays the first Doctor! What awful casting.

Then there's the movie. Every shot with the Dalek ship clearly shows
the wires even though they clearly spent a decent (by the relevant
standards) making the film. And why is Susan played by a girl who is
much younger than when we first see her in the very first episode?
Oh, and I loved the way the fearsome Dalek gun is replaced by a fire
extinguisher. Then there's England which hasn't changed a wit in
almost 200 years.


Very odd film.

Remembering that the film was made in the 1960s (as also was "Doctor Who
and the Daleks" IIRC), I'd have thought that the chance of finding a US
distributor for a British film based on a TV show which 99% of Americans
would never have heard of was remote. So if they did hope to sell the
film to the US I think they were being very optimistic. But I think that
it was actually made mainly for a British audience, but one that -
rather oddly - was assumed to have little familiarity with the TV show.

I didn't mind the casting. What annoyed me was the Doctor no longer
being an alien but portrayed as human.
