Film #313: DALEKMANIA
3 out of 5 stars
As someone who was raised in America, I never really got the whole British Dalek fascination. I did catch a lot of the DR WHO episodes on PBS, but that was many years after they played in their homeland. This almost sentimental documentary focuses on the two Dalek films which starred Peter Cushing with only some minor nods being given to the television show. There are some very cool interviews with cast and one short bit that shows an array of collectible Dalek toys. For people who’ve never seen either the films or the TV show, all of this nostalgia will undoubtedly be lost on them. For those who have, it will be a fun little (and short at 57 minutes) trip down Memory Lane.
