    I hope it’s longer than 45 minutes just so we can have more Dalek action. 😀
    Also, I hate to sound too picky, but Journey’s End was 75 minutes (I think. It was definitely longer than 45) and The Big Bang was 55 minutes. Wait a second! The Big Bang was 2 years ago today. 😀 Happy 2 years since our Universe was rebooted! 😀

    Booboo more news! An episode in Series 7 part 2 is called Phantoms of the Hex. It’s possibly episode 11 and actress that’s in it said it but I can’t remember her name. 😐

    Yes, but having every Dalek ever, would need to at least be a two parter. Every Dalek Ever would be just too awesome to be in one episode.

    “the doctors wife”, “the big bang” “journeys end”. All epic 45 minute episodes. If they can do that, they can do this!

    i can mean a few things, it can mean a retreat or hideaway, somewhere there are protected or it can mean a “prison” or secure place where they are held because they have gone mad or to stop them from doing harm

    So this episode is being billed as ‘epic’. How we can expect an epic adventure in the space of only 45 minutes is anyone’s guess.

    This needs to be something special. If not a 2 parter, then a longer episode.

    And as for every Dalek ever appearing. Does that mean millions of Daleks will be in this episode? I think not. Surely every incarnation of Dalek ever would be a more apt description.

    You’re going from all the way from the USA?

    I think you should definately choose doctor who experience because i had an amazing time there when i went and if you dont go to the episode 1 screening, you’ll only have to wait for about 2 weeks for it to be on tv

    Silly question, but what does asylum mean?

    that’s the point, moffatt said that if he revealed the name of the episode too soon, it’d give away the plot in a second, i don’t see how it could now that it has been revealed

    June 25th, 2012 - 8:00pm

    AWESOME! Just awesome. Awesome. I can’t wait! 😀

    Everything is pointing to a possible 25th August airdate, which is a bank holiday weekend

    There are no two parters in this series. However, Moffat has said there will only be two parters if there needs to be. 🙂

    The title sounds interesting

    Well, it look like Series 7 could be airing at the end of August since most screenings are usually 1-2 weeks before the episode. I have to admit, I was hoping that it would air around late September/early October time.
