Asylum of The Daleks Sat 1st Sep BBC1 7:20 – 8:10

Asylum of The Daleks Sat 1st Sep BBC1 7:20pm – 8:10pm

Matt Smith returns as the oldest time-traveller in the universe. The Time Lord, Amy and Rory are kidnapped by their oldest foe the Daleks and forced on a seemingly impossible mission – to enter the Asylum, a planetary prison confining the most terrifying and insane of the deadly aliens’ kind.

They need an escape route, and fast – but with an army of mad Daleks closing in, and the Ponds’ relationship in meltdown, it is up to the Doctor to save not only their lives but his friends’ marriage. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill co-star.

    I’m curtain they will, if they don’t then almost 50 years of Dalekmania will be crashing through there walls demanding an explanation, cos not only is Asylum of the Daleks a brand new Dalek story, but rather in a way celebrating the Daleks as a whole, showing their past by showing us the Doctor encountering the old versions of his oldest enemy.
