Movie-A-Day #327: Doctor Who and the Daleks (1965).

November 23, 2011

Happy birthday to “Doctor Who.” The show, one of the most influential pieces of science fiction in the world, debuted on the BBC on this date in 1963. It ran continuously through 1989, went through a few lean years, then reemerged in a fantastic new version in 2005. A film version of the modern incarnation is rumored to be in the works, but there have already been two Doctor Who movies, the first of which was “Doctor Who and the Daleks.” It (as well as its follow-up, 1966’s “Daleks’ Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.”) starred Peter Cushing as The Doctor in a loose retelling of a story from the TV series.
