The 1960s Doctor Who movies featuring the Daleks and Peter Cushing are finally getting deluxe Blu-ray releases.
While these two films are not technically a part of the established continuity of the BBC TV series, they are heavily inspired by serials that starred William Hartnell in the 1960s – and truly need to be seen if you’re a fan of the show.
In these two films, Cushing plays a mysterious Doctor who has invented a time-traveling box known as a TARDIS. Like another notable Doctor, he decides to go traveling the universe with his three young companions.

Dr. Who and the Daleks brings them to the planet Skaro where The Doctor and his companions meet the evil pepperpots for the first time… and must stop their plot for world domination!
The sequel, Dalek’s Invasion Earth 2150 AD, rockets forward nearly 200 years as the aliens have overrun earth, now ruling it with an iron fist. It’s up to The Doctor and a group of resistance fighters to save earth from the grip of the Daleks.
Both films have received 4K restorations exclusively for these Blu-ray Steelbook releases, with prices slashed to £49.99 right now for pre-order ahead of a June release.
These sets are packed with bonus features, including audio commentaries for each film, featurettes on the Daleks’ 1960s phenomenon, booklets featuring exclusive interviews and artwork, vintage trailers and documentation on the restoration process.
A limited cinema release is also planned, beginning July 10, 2022.
Doctor Who‘s next special, ‘Legend of the Sea Devils’, premieres on April 17 on BBC One in the UK. In the US, the show airs on BBC America, with series 1-12 available on HBO Max.
