Doctor Who: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Daleks

Great video by Andrew Orton, aka solidbronze.

I don’t know how he did it. Also very nice is the “trailer of the third and lost Dalek film, made in 1967”.

Everyone knows that there were two Dalek films in the 1960s starring Peter Cushing. It’s not generally knwon that there was a third film made in 1967, based on the Doctor Who TV serial ‘The Chase’. The master print of the film was lost in a fire in the Aaru / Amicus archives before the film was officially released. In 2009, in a box of dusty, charred old film canisters in the basement of a church in northern England, I located the last surviving footage from this film.
All that survived was the trailer…

Sure 🙂

Some info about the Daleks is here, of course. Here is a screenshot of the Dalek, taken from Andrew Orton’s film:
