For those that haven't seen the films before, the blurb for each film is below. Both films star Peter Cushing as Dr. Who, and they were directed by Gordon Flemyng.

1. Dr Who and the Daleks (1965)

Based on a story from the BBC TV serial. Scientist Dr. Who accidentally activates his new invention, the Tardis, a time machine disguised as a police telephone box. Dr. Who, his two granddaughters, and Barbara’s boyfriend Ian are transported through time and space to the planet Skaro, where a peaceful race of Thals are under threat of nuclear attack from the planet’s other inhabitants: the robotic mutant Daleks.

2. Daleks Invasion Earth - 2150 AD (1966)

Based on a story from the BBC TV serial. Dr. Who and his companions arrive on Earth in the year 2150 AD, only to discover that the planet has been invaded and its population enslaved by the dreaded Daleks. The time travellers assist human resistance groups to foil the Daleks' plan to mine the Earth's core.

Hope to see you there!
