What did you Think of Asylum of The Daleks?

What did you Think of Asylum of The Daleks

The first episode of series 7a has finally aired so what did you think?, was it the best episode ever or just average. Vote below.

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.



From the official site…

Steven Moffat, Head Writer and Executive Producer, thanked fans and the press for keeping the secret:

“I hope you all got a nice surprise when Jenna popped up in Doctor Who several months early. If so, that surprise came to you courtesy of the frankly magnificent ladies and gentlemen of the press, and of the many Doctor Who forums and blogs too. This show has been seen at four separate screenings, across four different countries and yet not one person gave one spoiler. From all of us on Doctor Who, a heartfelt thank you for helping us tell our story.”

    The daleks could change,but I’m sure episode 13 will answer more as the daleks look like big bad this year

    yeah, it’s all see this person die then feel upset when you see them alive. well with river and oswin

    well, (my opinion) she was turned into a dalek because she was clever ‘hence the hacking’
    Yes it does as they have all forgotten
    i thought the mutant the doctor was talking to was the PM
    in the asylum they must have thrown them in before they all died, but otherwise dont know.
    dont know.
    come to think of it, there were only red and white daleks in this one. thats lazy.

    sheepinafez I fell is right! I love this, it’s like a Doctor Who fan debate! Before I new the site existed I used to just think in my head what i thought of the episode. Thank you Luke and booboo!

    I know they were not that scary but a bit more interesting Dalek humans,zombies.but this episode will probably be solved in episode 12 or 13

    i thought the episode was ok, but with an episode that promised daleks from all of the earas, it was a big let down to see the classic ones barley get a look in. i have a few questions, feal free to answer them if you want.

    why was the whoman turned into a dalek in the first place?

    does this change the way the dalek’s are now that they have forgetten the doctor?

    who do you think is the primeinister of the daleks?

    how did the bronze daleks make a comeback?

    and who is the eternal?

    i think they did actully make the daleks scary for onece wich was nice i would also like to see a whole episode on skaro

  • The 14th Doctor

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:49pm

    Skaro has probably been brought back coz of the Dalek’s huge new empire, and as for your question about the Bronze Daleks, I think that Moffat has taken the criticism like a man and given us back the proper Daleks and not those things he created.

  • RORY DOCTOR RIVER POND

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:49pm

    True. Bring back Russell T!

  • booboo

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:48pm

  • RORY DOCTOR RIVER POND

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:48pm

    they must have dumped loads of daleks in the asylum before they got destroyed… Thats Russel T’s

    i just hope the next episode featureing the daleks is less mediocre then this one, dont get me wrong it was good,just the plot just had me lost a bit.

    Excellent Epic fun sad surprising too!

    Where did you find this

  • the astronaut of death

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:46pm

    plese reply

  • Boodleoo

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:46pm

    Oh I though she said and remember.:S

  • The 14th Doctor

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:46pm

    Very good indeed, but lack of Classic Daleks really annoyed me. However, glad to see the Bronze Daleks back, they beat the TellyTubby Clan any day.

    Jenna Louise Coleman. Perhaps the best kept spoiler ever? She wasn’t due for another four months! Reckon it might be River Song all over again, which is a bit stupid.

    Finally, the Daleks forgetting the Doctor. It’s all right I guess, surely it makes them more of a threat if they don’t realise how significant he is. They kill anyone they see as insignificant. However, I have a feeling that one day they will get their memories back, mabe on the 50th?

    Sorry not done, I also thought that Amy and Rory should have gone in before the Doctor, as a sort of: “Now you must go Doctor, Destroy the Asylum to save your friends’ then he would go. he just… agreed.

    Sorry again…

    Ok cool, yeah i get that, and lets hope that it pays off then. But also what about my other questions, they are the more desperate ones i would like to discuss.

  • Jim

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:45pm

    My favourite scenes.
    1: where they’re looking into the tunnel light thing and the doctor and Amy ask really important questions and then Rory asks what colour they are!
    2: the dalek saying EX which Rory mistook for eggs and thought that the sense globes were eggs and the dalek wanted them back.

    Also I’m interested about how this new companion will fit into this?

    The title sequence well the title sequence was… Well I’d rather not use that language on here! I could make better on windows movie maker. And actually I have!

    The daleks had no memory of the doctor in the first episodes with daleks, I am shure the doctor will bump into them again and they will begin to learn 🙂 I LOVED the episode! I don’t care about errors, all that matters is that I enjoyed it at the time!
    and I wonder how oswin will tie in with the new companion!

  • RORY DOCTOR RIVER POND

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:44pm

    No, I dont think so, then she would recognise him?,,,

  • RORY DOCTOR RIVER POND

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:44pm

    Me too. But before that they must have dumped some in the Asylum.

  • the astronaut of death

    September 1st, 2012 - 8:44pm
