2013 marks the centenary of celluloid legend of film and TV great Peter Cushing, as well as the 50th anniversary of the first appearance on television of the legendary Timelord.

To honour this, STUDIOCANAL are delighted to announce the release on DVD and Blu-ray of both the only cinematic incarnations of the Doctor’s adventures, suitably putting him against his most infamous foes, The Daleks.

DR Who & The Daleks and Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. have both been digitally re-mastered and are available in HD for the first time from Monday, May 27, 2013.

These releases are accompanied by a host of specially created new extras, including a look at the restoration work and brand new interviews.

About Dr Who & The Daleks

Directed by Gordon Flemyng and starring Peter Cushing, Roy Castle, Jennie Linden and Roberta Tovey, Dr. Who & The Daleks (1965) was the first big screen film adaptation of British TV’s most iconic sci-fi hero, and the first time Doctor Who was ever seen in colour!

British film legend Peter Cushing plays everyone’s favourite Timelord, and having invented the TARDIS, a strange machine capable of travelling into other dimensions, the Doctor and his three young companions 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. A merciless force of destruction known as The Daleks!

Extras include audio commentary with Roberta Tovey and Jenny Linden, Dalekmania, Restoring Dr Who And The Daleks, an interview with Gareth Owen, a stills gallery and trailer.
