Explosive New Trailer Now Live + Screenshots

Explosive New Trailer Now LIve

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.

    On the pic before you play the vid theres an ironside dalek

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      August 28th, 2012 - 4:25pm

      No it’s not. It’s just an ordinary Time War Dalek that’s all dirty and broken.

      If it was 1 of the 2 Ironside Daleks [which if you recall was destroyed by the Paradigm Daleks]it would have the Union Jack underneath the eyestalk and woul have that green bag thingy around it’s midsection covering most of it’s slates.

      Actually, there is one!

      i set the pic as my desktop background and it has the union jack thingy

    Lately Ive been wondering if this story will be the best Dalek story since the all time fan favorite ‘Genesis of the Daleks’, but considering Ive only seen 4 different classic Daleks in the trailers, I guess this story won’t surpass ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ at all.

    So reports that they dont even fire their weapons in the episode were rubbish.Thank goodness for that!

    OMG, why do the classic Daleks all have blue eyes? NO! Only the Bronze ones have blue eyes.

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      August 27th, 2012 - 8:15am

      They don’t in the trailers, so that’s ok.


      August 27th, 2012 - 8:49am

      I think it was just to show that they where active and alive in the poster because the imperial dalek action figure has a blue eye it would take a log of time and editing to edit all the classics with blue eyes they probaly will have the original eyes 🙂

    August 26th, 2012 - 7:36pm

    I remember saying that Victory of The Daleks was gonna be the best dalek story well I’m glad I was wrong Asylum of The Daleks looks brilliant.


    August 26th, 2012 - 3:31pm

    I like the new mobile version of the News Site! Is this why I couldn’t get onto it earlier?

    • Luke

      August 26th, 2012 - 4:35pm

      Thank you! 🙂 Might have been but it should have been ok, did any error message come up?


      August 26th, 2012 - 4:57pm

      No, I was trying to get onto it on my iPod and it just wouldn’t load. At least it’s working now. Are you planning to redesign any other sections of the site for mobile?

    • Luke

      August 26th, 2012 - 5:11pm

      Ah ok, it might have been that than. Yep we’ve redone the Doctor Who and Dalek section:

      Next will probably be the homepage and spin offs section, plus tidying that up a bit.

      Not in a rush to do TW, SJA or K9 as they’re not relevant atm (no current series).

      The merchandise section needs doing but that’ll take a lot of planning/work so that’ll have to wait a while.

      This month 20-25% of our visitors viewed the site on iOS or an android device so it needs doing 🙂


      August 26th, 2012 - 5:19pm

      Ok, I look forward to it! It will be a lot easier, I normally have to zoom in to most of the text to read it all. Just one thing though, I do miss the links across the top banner (News, Merchandise, Doctor Who, etc.). Is there any way you could get them back for this version of the site, or at least a link to the Merchandise Section?

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 26th, 2012 - 8:13pm

      That’s funny BOOBOO JR, I was on my iPod too until I went on and saw this. I didn’t think the news section change, I just thought it was the way the iPod showing it. It’s really good though! 🙂

      And is it just me BOOBOO JR, or have you not been posting for a while on here? 😀

    • Luke

      August 26th, 2012 - 8:27pm

      I’d be interest to know, do you mostly view this site on your iPods? or do you sometimes use desktop computers.

      I’ll have a think about the top links, I only removed them as on the Doctor Who and other sections they have their own navigation so it got a bit messy but you’re right, now that the news page is mobile friendly the links will need to be somewhere 🙂

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 26th, 2012 - 9:19pm

      Yes Luke, these days there’s quite a lot of people with iPods. Before Christmas, I used to use my Wii to view this website cause my laptop was very slow. Then I got an iPod, and I must say it’s helped me a lot! So much that I’m using it now! 🙂 I have a new good laptop, but I usualy use it to play games, not go on websites.

    • Luke

      August 26th, 2012 - 9:30pm

      I know a lot of people that use iPads and phones etc more than PC’s now, it’s interesting to know how people view the site. I’ve got an iPhone and I use it all the time for checking emails, twitter etc but not for web browsing as a lot of sites aren’t very mobile friendly


      August 26th, 2012 - 10:07pm

      I mainly use my iPod to get onto the site, I find it quicker and easier. Though I do occasionally use my laptop. Good to hear you’ll have a think about the top links, it would just speed up the process of getting to different parts of the site.

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 27th, 2012 - 7:56am

      I only use my iPod to go on the Internet, cause as BOOBOO JR said, it’s easier and quicker! 🙂


      August 27th, 2012 - 4:53pm

      Hi Time Lord of Doom. Yes I haven’t been posting in a while, I’ve been on holiday for the past few weeks. I never managed to find a Wi-Fi connection so I couldn’t get onto the site. But the day I got back and opened up the Merchandise Page, it was pretty cool to see the news of a Rory Figure!!!

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 27th, 2012 - 7:31pm

      Good to hear that BOOBOO JR! Welcome back!!! 😀
      Also in case you didn’t know, I’m the person from Greece, remember? We used to chat a lot!
      Oh and last, Series 7 in 4 days!!!!!! 😀


      August 27th, 2012 - 7:46pm

      Yes, I do remember you! I can’t wait for S7 either!!!

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 28th, 2012 - 8:20am

      I can’t wait any longer! Wild West, Daleks and Dinosaurs?! Oh and Black Cubes and the Angels?! It’s gonna be great! 😀


      August 28th, 2012 - 8:41am

      Yes, Asylum of the Daleks is going to be brilliant! And with a new episode of Pond Life every day until Friday, this week is going to be great!!!


      August 29th, 2012 - 9:41am

      Thanks Luke (or Booboo, I don’t know who did it) for adding in the links across the top on the Mobile Site 😀

    • Luke

      August 29th, 2012 - 9:33pm

      No probs, thanks for the feedback and glad you found them ok 🙂


      August 29th, 2012 - 9:37pm

      I honestly can’t praise you enough for the Site, and I look forward to other Mobile related content soon. Thanks again!

    • Commander Strax

      August 26th, 2012 - 4:51pm

      Could it be a classic?


    August 26th, 2012 - 11:51am

    why are they releasing so many trailers!! you could probably leave some out. the very first one months back was strange as the new series was know where nere then, and that save the dalek one could have been put in this one… and on the trailer it still doesnt have a date.


      August 26th, 2012 - 11:51am

      although we already know it!

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      August 26th, 2012 - 2:42pm

      I’ll admit the amount of trailers recently is quite a bit too many, but I’m sure this will be it for now!

      The date is only shown in the transmission version.

    What happened to my reply to MadGuyInATARDIS?

  • Jim

    August 25th, 2012 - 10:13pm

    I went to look at the synopsis of this on my sky box and it doesn’t look like the Xmas special is part of the series because I put the information up and it said. New series 1/12. So does the Xmas special count as an episode?

    • MadGuyInATARDIS

      August 25th, 2012 - 10:20pm

      Its episode 0. Thats how its always been classified anyway! 🙂

    • Jim

      August 25th, 2012 - 10:36pm

      I thought it was part of series 7 episodes because Moffat said 14 episodes including Xmas special. So theres only 13 now then

    • MadGuyInATARDIS

      August 25th, 2012 - 10:40pm

      Yeah but I think as it’s in the middle of the series… I don’t know sorry! Haha


    August 25th, 2012 - 10:03pm

    booboo are you able to get that image that is on the video? The one of Rory, the Doctor and Amy in front of classic daleks? I really want it as a wallpaper!

    • MadGuyInATARDIS

      look at the dalek at the far right hand side then look ath the ID tag ITS AN IRONSIDE!!!!!!!
      shame its not today.

    August 25th, 2012 - 8:14pm

    you know the guy in the white jumper from the first trailers

    do you tink he is a thal

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      August 25th, 2012 - 8:20pm

      I doubt it. Thals had blonde hair, this guy seems to be bald despite wearing a hood, and not be racist or anything, but his black skinned, Thals have always appeared to be white skinned in both ‘The Daleks’, ‘Planet of the Daleks’and ‘Genesis of the Daleks’.

      I wonder thou what happened to the Thals, cos after Genesis, we never see or hear of them again.

      I reckon they are either all wiped out, or they are alive safe and sound on another planet, in hiding from the Daleks, and living a peaceful life.

    • Dalek Fanatic

      August 25th, 2012 - 10:49pm

      Possibly, I mean the events of Planet occur after Genesis so there may be a fair amount of Thals surviving in hiding from their enemies the Daleks, and in “The Only Good Dalek” we saw the return of the SSS so it’s a good chance 🙂

  • Stan Stanmanson

    August 25th, 2012 - 6:31pm

    whenever that dalek says-“The Asylum must be cleansed, the predator of the Daleks will be deployed!”, it always makes me smile. not like 🙂
    But like 😀

  • Commander Strax

    August 25th, 2012 - 2:57pm

    The planet looks like a moon, so it cant be Skaro or its that snow. I dont under stand that there is someone else in snow clothing in the other trailers.

    From Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine: Doctor Who boss Steven Moffat has exterminated two – part episodes. So Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillian will leave in a single show. “My boys Louis and Joshua got cross when an episode ended without a real conclusion.” he says.

  • dr who

    August 25th, 2012 - 2:51pm

    i heard somewhere that someone thought clara [jlc]might become a dalek at the end of the series,because someone in filming heard her shouting doctor and it sounded similiar to the dalek shouting,but i don’t think it is true,but you never know i think it is all linked together

    • dr who

      August 25th, 2012 - 3:09pm

      in short words some thought

      clara might become a dalek[series finale maybe]

  • SpaceBUZZlite

    August 25th, 2012 - 1:01pm

    So much for every single dalek EVER, they should of said every dalek minus half of them. I would if loved to see the genesis daleks be the main ones after all we all want the old ones rather than the bronze daleks. Seems like a big dissappontment

      Well you never know, Genesis dalek might be back. TRUST ME! 🙂

    • Will

      August 26th, 2012 - 4:54pm

      The NSDs are one of the most popular types of Dalek and they are a modern realisation. I doubt the Genesis ones would become the main ones.

  • Dalek Jake

    August 25th, 2012 - 12:48pm

    I hope the Special Weapons Dalek actually has some scenes rather than being in the background the whole time.

    • Jason doctorwhoone

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    August 25th, 2012 - 10:13am

    If you look at the above image showing the Doctor, Amy and Rory with the Dalek behind them, they seem to have a 1963 original and 1984 Resurrection Dalek with blue eyes when they shouldn’t, only the Time War Daleks have eyes that glow blue.

    I feel theres gonna be a sense of disappointment for classic series fan’s and Dalek fan’s in general in terms of how many classic Daleks will feature, all Ive notice so far is –

    1963 original.
    ‘Evil’ Emperor Guard.
    Special Weapons Gunner Dalek.

    Time War Daleks seem to dominate this story, and theres vary few Paradigms from the look of it, just the Supreme Dalek, several Drones and 1 or 2 Strategists Ive seen so far from what’s been shown online.

    So much for claiming this story will feature ‘ALL of them’.

      Well Character Options have done destroyed Cybermen and a destroyed Imperial Dalek, so yeah, very much likely they might.

      only 7 days left,trailers just ruin it,i wish i would hurry up or iam going to see if i can find all the spoilers.

    • DoctorWhoUltimateFan

      August 25th, 2012 - 10:18am

      Don’t they just spoil things! I like the idea of an Asylum but I bet you it’s probably going to be one of those episodes where there’s just a whole load of speech. But then again, I could be wrong…
