MANY THANKS to Studio Canal for sponsoring one of our PCASuk Competitions today! Here is YOUR chance to WIN a copy of this 4K out of this world, SPECIAL COLLECTOR EDITION restoration BLU RAY release #DrWhoandtheDaleks' (1965), starring Peter Cushing as Dr Who with a supporting cast of Jennie Linden, Roberta Tovey and Roy Castle. This was the first big screen film adaptation of British TV’s most iconic sci-fi hero, and the first time the #Daleks were ever seen in colour! 
THE PLOT: Having invented the TARDIS, a strange machine capable of travelling into other dimensions, the Dr. and his three young accomplices set forth on a quest through time and space. Their journey takes them into the dark, undiscovered depths of the universe and to the planet of Skaro, a primitive world devastated by nuclear war and populated by two warring species, a peaceful tribe known as Thals and a life form heavily mutated by radiation, encased in protective machines, merciless force of destruction known as The Daleks!
We have ONE copy 'DR WHO AND THE DALEKS' Special Collectors Edition 4K Blu Ray up for grabs. Dr Who and the Daleks has enjoyed several home releases over the years, Studio Canal has worked it's magic in not only presenting the film restored and remastered, but now for the first time in ultra high-definition 4K. ‘Dr Who and the Daleks’, looks brighter, more colourful and sharper than ever before! 
THE STUNNING 1960s vintage-style cover artwork by Johnny Dombrowski packages ‘Dr Who and the Daleks’ very attractively for fans. A collector’s edition also includes a booklet. There are several exciting extra features on the disc. ‘The Dalek Legacy: Destination Skaro’ is sixteen minutes in length and sees modern-day voice of the Daleks Nicholas Briggs and other ‘Doctor Who’ luminaries putting the legacy of the 1960s films into context within the wider world of ‘Doctor Who’. ‘Restoring Dr Who in 4K’ is an eleven-minute instalment about how the original film elements have been digitally enhanced for this restoration.  
THE DISC ALSO boasts the documentary ‘Dalekmania, filmed in the mid-1990s, which covers both films and features some of the then-surviving cast and crew from both films and explores the possible reasons for the overwhelming popularity of the Daleks. Of particular interest are the stories of Jill Curzon and Roberta Tovey, guest actors Barrie Ingham and Yvonne Antrobus; as well as Eddie Powell, a stuntman whose involvement in the second film left him with a broken ankle. Pinewood Studios expert and Roger Moore’s former right-hand man Gareth Owen is also available to impart his knowledge of the film’s origins. An audio commentary featuring film critic Kim Newman in conversation with ‘Doctor Who’ writers Robert Shearman and Mark Gatiss takes you all the way through the film with affectionate insights. A separate audio track reunites companions Jennie Linden (Barbara) and Roberta Tovey (Susan).
