Asylum of The Daleks Final Viewing Figures

Asylum of The Daleks Viewing Figures

Final viewing figures show that Asylum of The Daleks was watched by 8.3 million viewers. This figure includes those who recorded and programme and then watched it within 7 days.

This does not include iplayer.


Overnight viewing figures showed that Asylum of The Daleks was watched by 6.4 million viewers. These overnight figures have become increasingly unreliable as to the true audience.

    I agree. Steven Moffet has killed Russel T Davies baby. The continuity is imposible for the average audience to follow. His characters are week and his plots have so many continuity holes in them that one just never knows where one is. After the 2012 Chistmas Special ‘The Snowmen’ just what is he doing here. Another new title sequence, reminicent of the McCoy era and another tardis interior. I’m finishing with it at the end of series 4, bring back Russel T Davis PLEASE

    tottaly agree. Matt Smith is actually a good Doctor and plays it better then one or two past actors but it has became pure fantasy and lost its continuity. One just never knows where on is in it and has lapsed into its former habit that got it axed in 1989. BRING BACK RUSSEL T. DAVIES PLEASE

    Dr who has become very soap operatic recently, burdened with over sentimentality and dreary story arcs, continuous references to the inevitable CGI monster mash at the end of the season, it also does not appear to be science fiction anymore, more like pure fantasy, it has always had an element of this but now it just seems like Harry Potter. It seems to be getting camp again like it did in the 80s, probably best to cancel it and leave it alone for while. Shame really as I really like Matt Smith, just think the scripts are dull, not complex, merely muddled.

    this was the worst daleks ep to have ever aired. the beginning the doctor was on scaro but the Hand of Omega or in the time war. secound why the hell do the daleks have a parlament or even a prime minister. the daleks have a emporer and that is their leader. then after that a supreme dalek. the writer has not only ruined r t d he ruined the origonals aswell. matt smith is a good doctor and the 50th annervey epo should have him and david tennant. but back to the story. it was hardley about the daleks at all more about amy and rory marrage. and oswin being trapped only to be a dalek making them seem weak. the fact oswin was converted into a dalek i mean converting humans is for cybermen only. then the ending when the daleks forget the doctor and the doctor who rubbish is dumb. steven leave the daleks to someone else and stay on your angels

    I think you missed the point here.
    Amy can’t have any more children because of the trauma she went through in demons run.
    Also, she says Rory wants CHILDREN – The fact that he has a daughter (River Song) is irrelevant as he never knew her as a CHILD or saw her grow up.

    Asylum Oswin called herself Oswin Oswald not Clara Oswin so presumeably the new companion is a different person. However, the Doctor never actually saw Oswin so his decision to make Clara his companion must be based on voice alone – and ‘Remember Me’

    amy left rory becuase she said she could not have children. first of all they did nothing to her at demons run the just kidnaped her and let her give birth. secondly you have to wait six to sevan months for divorce papers so rory and amy did not try at all to resovle there problams not once and any way they can adopted and thirdly THEY ALLREADY HAVE A DAUGHTER

    the daleks are underused half the time it is amy and rory trying to fix there marrage and makeing the daleks lose there memarys of the doctor stevan moffat is a terrible head writer and producer. He falsely advertised that the classic daleks would be in this episode and amy leaveing rory becuase she can’t have children is a big continuaty problam. first of all they did nothing to her a demons run they just kidnaped her and let her give birth, secondly you have to wait six to sevan months for divorce papers so during that time amy and rory did not resolve there problam and anyway they can adoped and thirdly THEY ALREADY HAVE A CHILD

    first of all there were barly any classic daleks. this story is terrible the writeing is lazy and very confuseing for the average viewer. stevan moffat asumes that everyone has watched the prequals, played the adventure games and read the comics. forinstance Amy and Rory getting a divorce yes it might make sense for the dr who fans who watched pond life but not for an average viewer. Amy leaveing Rory becuase she cant have children is an other huge conitinuaty problam. first of all they did nothing to amy at demons run they just kidnaped here and let her give birth, secondly you have to wait for six to sevan months for divorce papers so amy and rory had six to sevan months to works things out, thirdly ever heard of adoption( unless amy is so desperat to go throgh the joys of child birth) and last but not least YOU ALREADY HAVE A DAUGHTER remember river song melady pond

    stevan moffat is a good writer but a terrible head writer I bet there are thousands if not millions of really good fan scripts that stevan just ignors. he keeps bringing back the weeping angels( who are not scary any more) his storys have to many plot holes and don’t make sense and his charactors are just anoying. he will be the death of doctor who

    I did’ent think asylum of the daleks was any good.Evan though it was nice to see the daleks agian however they barly in it most of the time it is the doctor Amy and Rory( yes and oswin) It could of been better if it just stuck to one storyline. plus the ending was terrible. Mr Moffat said that the classic daleks would make an aperance there was evan posters advertiseing them but we barley saw any. that is called false advertsisement. Next he will be telling us that the sea devills will come back but they will only be in the background for 1 second. I hope dr who gets better writers like Mark Gattis and Robert Shearmen are just what the doctor orderd
