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.

    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 😀

    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.
