P.C. Tom Campbell, (Cribbins), mistakes The Tardis, Doctor Who's time machine, for a police telephone box while trying to report a robbery. Campbell, the Doctor and his assistants go forward in time to futuristic London where the Daleks are controlling the city. These robot creatures house an alien intelligence who have designs on turning the earth into a massive spaceship by dropping a bomb into the core and extract the metal found there. The Doctor tries to organise an uprising to crush the Daleks, but the rebellion fails. In a last minute bid to save the world Tom manages to deflect the bomb away from the core thereby altering the magnetic field and causing all the Daleks to malfunction and die.
The second feature to be based on the popular television series. The shoddy sets and the television styles make this all the more endearing to fans.

Tedious sci-fi tale with some cheap effects that cannot be helped by Bava's good photography.
