Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
"Motorized dustbins" enslave the Earth -- it must be a Doctor Who story! The Dalek Invasion of Earth, a six-episode story from the early days of TV's longest-running sci-fi serial, features the program’s first Doctor, William Hartnell. Doctor Who is a mysterious "Time Lord" who uses the TARDIS, a time-travel machine in the shape of a London police box, to navigate the fourth dimension. He arrives on 22nd-century Earth to discover that the planet has been conquered by a robot race called the Daleks. This invasion marks the Daleks' second appearance on the show, and they would quickly become Dr. Who's most popular adversaries (his Klingons, if you will). Here we also say goodbye to the Doctor's first traveling companion, his granddaughter Susan (original cast member Carol Ann Ford). This is cheesy stuff, to be sure. But the low-budget trappings, along with the compelling plots, are half the charm for fans. The other half is Hartnell; he brings Merlin-like charisma to his take on the Doctor. Made in 1964, this is classic, black-and-white Who, a perfect introduction to one of sci-fi television's most venerable institutions.
