The Movie Doctor, Peter Cushing

Peter Cushing played the Doctor in two movies during the sixties.

In the 1960s, there were two movie versions of Doctor Who, starring Peter Cushing in the main role.
The first was in 1965 and entitled 'Dr Who And The Daleks. This film saw the Doctor travel through time and space in his new invention, the TARDIS. (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space)
Along with his companions, grand-daughter Susan, Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton, they find themselves materializing on the planet Skaro.

The planet is suffering from a nuclear fallout, where the inhabitants of this world are deformed mutated lifeforms who have incased themselves within metal shells in order to survive. These are the Daleks.
The Doctor and his three companions have found themselves in the middle of a war with the planet's other inhabitants, the Thals, a peaceful, humanoid species. The Daleks aim to annihilate the Thals by detonating a neutron bomb and only the Doctor can help save them.
