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.

Cast and crew

The Doctor -Matt Smith
Amy Pond – Karen Gillan
Rory Williams – Arthur Darvill
Writer – Steven Moffat

    Just taken 5 photos of my Special Weapons Gunner Dalek model kit I brought 4 years ago but never bothered to built it until recently, so it’s finish now just in time for it’s appearance in Asylum of the Daleks tonight πŸ˜€

    If anyone one like to view them –

    1) Go to Deviant Art.

    2) look up either ‘DoctorWhoOne’ or simply copy and paste ‘DW- Special Weapons Gunner Dalek Model Kit [1]’and you should be able to find them.

    If your own the site, comments would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you all, and enjoy it’s return in Asylum of the Daleks.

    news alert for christmas 2012! J-Lou has been confirmed as Clara Oswin, I saw it in the Daily Mail TV magazine. you probably all knew this, but just saying. it would be nice if it was on the official website, like when the name Amy Pond was revealed. A lot of images and info have been leaked in the last one or two years…
    i am looking foward to tonight! big expectations!

    Just finished an old model kit I brought 4 years ago of the Special Weapons Gunner Dalek from the old Who Shop in East Ham, hopefully I’ll take some pictures of it tomorrow and upload them onto Deviant Art before Asylum of the Daleks is broadcast.

    I was thinking thou while finishing the model wither or not we maybe seeing some sort of future releases involving the Special Weapons Gunner Dalek, like a remote control version with lights and sounds. Could be a big hit for Christmas either this year or Christmas 2013, thinking ahead shall we say πŸ˜€

      hi there i wish i had a special weapons daleks
      and a remote one would be awesome.
      why don’t you put those pictures on this website as well as we would all like to see them.

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      September 1st, 2012 - 7:22am

      I don’t work on this website so I can’t upload them.

      Unfortunatly I need a bit of super glue to attach a the front end of the canon of my model to the rest of the canon as it came off [damn UHU glue !!].

      I won’t have any pictures of my model on Deviant Art this morning which was my original intention, but hopefully I will get the super glue today just to glue that one piece back on, and then hopefully take some nice pictures and upload them onto Deviant Art, so keep check on my Deviant Art page, you can find me on the same name of Doctor Who One. If you want to make it easier to find my page on it, look for ‘Doctor Who: The Asylum Daleks – Remastered’ and bookmark my page on your computer / laptop if you know how.

      I could instead just copy and paste links of my pictures onto here on a comment like I did on the section featuring Boo Boos Dalek collection when I posted my 3 pictures of my Dalek Collection here on a comment.

      Don’t worry, I will hopefully have photo’s taken today before broadcast, theres loads of time.

      Had to miss it as my dad is watching an old episode of Stargate SG-1 on Sky 2.

      Don’t matter thou, someone always uploads clips of Doctor Who actors appearing on the One Show on YouTube, and personally I find the One Show to be a very boring series, especially with that female presenter, can’t stand her.
