    Well the talking daleks are coming to forbidden planet on the 22nd, so it can’t be long after that until we get the first episode

      But they are already available in Argos stores, so that rules out that theory.

    August 1st, 2012 - 9:19am

    Don’t get your hopes up for this but I can’t remember where I heard this but I heard that in the trailer it’s mostly daleks and weeping angles and dinosaurs and also in the trailer there MAY be a clip of two daleks fighting

      That’s good! I hope it’s in the trailer. πŸ˜€

    I was looking forward to watching the new series of Dr Who, but then when I saw the first trailer shown of series 7, I was somewhat disappointed. I am not saying that it will not be any good, I am just saying that I hope that this trailer is better than the other one shown. The thing I found about the other trailer shown, was that it was mostly focused on the episode: A Town Called Mercy.

  • Doctor Stu

    July 31st, 2012 - 9:25pm

    I Really hope all of the Clssic Daleks are part of the Dalek story and are not just there s a sort of cameo and only appear for about 10 seconds

  • Doctor Who DVD Collector

    July 31st, 2012 - 8:57pm

    UHHH!!!! I am annoyed with Moffat, because of a few reasons:

    1) What did he do to the monsters? (Paradigm Daleks, Sillurians, etc) I just hope that he won’t bring any old monsters back until a new head writer comes.

    2) He has just denied that their will be a Doctor Who movie. David Yates promised a movie, and I was (just like thousands of people) very excited. I am sad πŸ™

    • crazy guy

      August 1st, 2012 - 8:46am

      he did not deny it he said there could be a film but in a couple of years. anyway if he did do a film it would not very good because David Yates sad it would be a reboot with a different doctor not the doctor that would currently be in the show

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      August 1st, 2012 - 1:16pm

      Yes, and as Moffat said, it could completely destroy the franchise.

    • KGF

      August 1st, 2012 - 2:55pm

      Steven Moffat has denied it, because the BBC have basically recruited Yates, without Moffat’s awareness. Moffat then goes on to say that there would only be a movie if he so wanted one (were he still Head Writer at the time), and if it were to feature the current Doctor – not a complete re-boot, because that would ruin the whole franchise. Yates seems to have made his own plans.

    I hope Davros and the different Emperor Daleks are featured in ‘Asylum of the Daleks'[even thou Davros was Emperor to the Imperial Daleks], it wouldn’t feel right to me if they had all the various Daleks we’ve seen since 1963 and not include the different Emperor Daleks and the man who created them in the first place.

    I just love the idea of seeing Davros gliding his modern New Series style Dalek casing that we saw him sitting inside of back in 2008 gliding past the casings of old Daleks, and maybe see him talk face to face with the original Emperor Dalek from the 2nd Doctor story ‘Evil of the Daleks’.

    Davros – “I am the true Emperor of the Daleks you giant pepperpot”.

    Emperor Dalek “La La La La La, I’m not listening to you prune face, La La La La La”.

    Davros – ” . . . . . Child . . . . . “.

    • Give me a Dalek any day

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 31st, 2012 - 5:08pm

      Should be 25th August and then four months after that, Doctor Who will be on again. πŸ˜€

    July 31st, 2012 - 3:01pm

    I can’t wait!!! πŸ˜€


    July 31st, 2012 - 1:41pm

    It will probably be on earlier, because ive just seen the Merlin advert today on BBC 1, so the Doctor Who one may be on early…

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 31st, 2012 - 1:48pm

      Possibly, but the Merlin one has been on since Saturday, so I think if we were going to see the Doctor Who one, we probably would’ve seen it by now. πŸ™‚


      July 31st, 2012 - 2:37pm

      Thats not guaranteed…

  • silencehavefallen

    July 31st, 2012 - 10:13am

    where will we be able to view it in case i miss it? Or when the the evening is it on?

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2012 - 10:14am

      probably on the BBC site, no doubt loads of people will put it on youtube


    July 30th, 2012 - 7:27pm

    I really hope we get a glimpse of a new creature/monster in this trailer. I know what Daleks and Weeping Angels look like!

    Hey BooBoo I know this is a little bit off topic but when is the next issue of Doctor Who Magazine coming out?

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 30th, 2012 - 3:03pm

      I’m not booboo, but it’s coming out 23rd August.

    • booboo

      July 30th, 2012 - 3:03pm

  • crazy guy

    July 30th, 2012 - 12:07pm

    it has been confirmed that the statue of liberty is going to be a weeping angel in episode 5 of series 7 i cant wait for this episode this will be great.

    • booboo

      July 30th, 2012 - 12:14pm

      Although we knew it was likely i see nothing from the BBC that confirms this

    • crazy guy

      July 30th, 2012 - 12:42pm

      it has been confirmed it says on another doctor who website but i cant put what the website was called because this comment would be removed

    • booboo

      July 30th, 2012 - 12:44pm

      who in turn got that story from a news paper

      This confirms nothing – only the BBC of official spokes people confirm stuff

      All these spoiler sites do is pick up news from other sites and it somehow becomes official

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 30th, 2012 - 2:57pm

      To be fair though, the Daily Star has been getting an awful lot of things right recently: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, Madame Vastra returning (although the *shudder* ‘other thing’ they mentioned is still yet to be proven.) and various other things which I’ve forgotten about. Probably because of the *shudder* ‘other thing’

    • booboo

      July 30th, 2012 - 3:03pm

      i have no doubt its true but my issue is its not confirmed

      Silurians? Giant Weeping Angels?

      I need to watch new Doctor Who now. Give me it now, please!


    July 29th, 2012 - 10:14pm

    Alex Kingston is doing Who Do You Think You Are?, a programme in which celebrities trace back their family trees. Just thought I’d let you know, so maybe you could make a page, BOOBOO. Also, I’ve got some new videos on my YouTube channel so if you could take a look at that, it’d really help me out. Just search YouTube for TIMEVORTEXKID.

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 27th, 2012 - 7:28pm

      I’m sure there will be lots from Episode 5 since it’s going to be very…err…dramatic. Hopefully, there’ll be footage from Part 2!!! And if there isn’t, I’ll be very annoyed. πŸ™‚

    • Anonymous

      July 27th, 2012 - 7:32pm

      I doubt there will be much from part 2 as they haven’t filmed much yet. But hopefully we will get a preview of the Christmas special, and the first view of Jenna louise Coleman !!!!!!

      July 27th, 2012 - 8:06pm

      They won’t show anything from the Christmas Special, if it had all been in one go as Moffat had wanted then maybe, but it isn’t.

  • Give me a Dalek any day

    July 27th, 2012 - 7:16pm

    Good news! It’s been a looooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggg time since the last trailer. Will there be clips from Series 7:Part 2, or will it just focus on the first half? πŸ™‚

    Finally, a new trailer!
