DOCTOR WHO is a loose adaptation of the second DCOTOR WHO story from the TV series which manages to be somewhat faithful except
some major changes like making the Doctor human and Barbara being related to him. However, this is the first we would see
DOCTOR WHO and even Daleks in full color (years before the TV show would start shooting in color with season seven of the
classic DOCTOR WHO TV series). The movies would see another actor, Peter Cushing, playing a human version of the Doctor instead
of the TV show's William Hartnell who played the character on the series. They also called the character Doctor Who instead
of the Doctor with Barbara being related to the Doctor instead of a companion. DOCTOR WHO AND THE DALEKS takes the Doctor,
his granddaughter Susan, his niece Barbara, and her boyfriend Ian to the planet Skaro where the Thals are surviving years
after a war with the Daleks left Skaro radioactive.
If you're a fan of the DOCTOR WHO movies, go buy the blu-ray or DVDs of them. They aren't bad adaptations. It is great
to see DOCTOR WHO AND THE DALEKS in color despite Ian being more of a comic relief character in the movie verses the TV serial
by Terry Nation.

FINAL ANALYSIS: It is nice to have this movie on blu-ray with DOCTOR WHO looking great in color with a bigger looking
budget than the TV serial it is based on. If you're a fan of this movie or a DOCTOR WHO fan who want to check it out, but
this disc and the other DOCTOR WHO film release from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.
