    Cannot say how glad I am that they are bringing back all the Daleks! William Hartnell Daleks and Genesis of the Daleks designs are my favourite, and I love the Special Weapons Dalek. And… since the old designs are all coming back, the focus will be shifted off the dodgy “pregnant” Daleks!

    I disagree I think the story line will be great nd stolen earth I thought wasn’t that good I mean the red supreme DALEK looked awful and we saw no development in the daleks them self really

    Its nor gonna be as epic as the stolen earth. Them just avoiding reanimated daleks on Dalek prison on an Abandoned Penal planet. End of. Forget and move on to Ep 2

    Terribel ttile, should have been Legecy of the DaleksIt’s gonna be bad, the whole episode will be like series 5 cold blood, them running down corridors avoiding dales that just woke up in some kind of Dalek Prison/Museum. Boring like The Rebel flesh two parter. But we can live in hope, it won’t be like the stolen earth unfortunately a well.

    The Girl Who Waited had several as well, and Closing Time was also briefly Three Cybermen and a Baby (until the budget got boosted and they could have a fourth Cyberman).

    Yer I agree with you it’s going to be AWSOME 🙂 but what I said before is what I THINK might happen I love the daleks!!!! My favorite monster!


    June 26th, 2012 - 8:10pm

    I agree with you although it still might be good

    if the daleks are in the first episode it might not be something big. like in series 3 the dalek story was in the middle of the series and the big plot was the master returning. this could be a similr thing


    June 26th, 2012 - 7:23pm

    I reckon everyone will hate me for saying this bit I don’t think it will that good because only the first episode so by episode 4 everyone would have just forgotten about this :/ they should have made a bigger thing about if the daleks just don’t seem like such a big thing anymore it’s going to be AWSOME to see the old ones but I bet it’s gonna be rushed :/ I’m not putting my hopes up high

    Asylum of the Daleks is only the start of the mad, wonderful rollercoaster that is Series 7 (or 33). There’s lots more to look forward to after that and I am definitely excited! I can’t wait any longer! 😀

    the daleks have found more progenitors and have created more daleks. each dalek design is a differant dalek rank.I have a feeling that davros or the evil of the daleks emperor will return

    Davros better be back! It wouldn’t be right bringing all of them back and leaving him out.

    June 26th, 2012 - 1:20pm

    I knew all of them apart from The Curse of the black Spot and Closing Time. 😐

    That means it’s also 2 years since the Fez. Oh and it’s Amy and Rory’s wedding anniversary, but nothing (and I mean nothing) beats a Fez! 😀

    episodes are often given working titles before the final one in decided, happens all the time.not saying this isn’t the final name just that it might not be and i think the BBC would rather it was revealed via official channels than someone’s CV to be honest.

    Remember these from last year?…

    The Impossible Astronaut – The Year of the Moon

    The Curse of the Black Spot – Siren

    The Almost People – Gangers

    A Good Man Goes to War – Demons Run

    Night Terrors – What are Little Boys Made of

    Closing Time – Carry-On Lodging

    The Wedding of River Song – The Wedding

    But booboo how could it be when the actress herself said it? I don’t understand.

    June 26th, 2012 - 12:13pm

    Oh Give me a Dalek Any day, you always make me laugh! “Happy 2 years since our universe was rebooted!”. 😆 Also Journey’s End was definetaly not that long! That’s as long as Voyage of the Damned. It was around 60-65 minutes I think.
