1966's Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 AD is another of those weird little movies that somehow got on Turner Classic Movies. One of the many weird things about it is that it's a Doctor Who movie, more or less, starring Peter Cushing as a version of the First Doctor; they hadn't thought of regenerations when it came out. Mostly they'd thought of doing some movies to capitalize on the popularity of Daleks.

I didn't have the chance to resume writing the honeymoon report, but let me provide you with entertainment in the form of reviewing one of the Doctor Who Actual Movies from the 60s. There's a lot of it that's entertaining and interesting, and then somehow it sort of evaporates and the attention starts to wander.  )

It's fun yet somehow hollow.

Trivia: In 1613, Amsterdam already had about five inns for every hundred inhabitants. By 1636 there were likely two hundred within the city walls of Haarlem, an area not much larger than Hyde Park.
