We already knew the Daleks would return in season seven of Doctor Who and with that teaser trailer released months ago we had reason to believe it would be in the season opener. Now it’s confirmed with the announcement the first episode of season will be titled, “Asylum of the Daleks.”
Hmm, we’ve already seen what happens when Daleks go mad, in this episode do they visit a home for insane Daleks? I don’t know, maybe, but the Great Wizard Steven Moffat confirmed with the BBC, “the adventure will feature every kind of Dalek ever faced by the Time Lord – including the legendary Special Weapons Dalek!”
Whoa–! That’s a lot of Daleks.
But y’know, asylum also refers to protection. Could the “Asylum” be referring to a place where the Daleks go to feel safe. But from who? Oh right, The Doctor! The destroyer of worlds.
Executive Producer Caro Skinner didn’t add much in the way of clarification or detail, but she had this to say of the episode,
This is an epic Dalek adventure that kicks off the new series in explosive style! If you think you know all there is to know about the Daleks, think again…
No matter what, I think we can expect to be in for one of hell of show, Moffat and co. will deliver, and I’m hoping season seven will be their best yet. What do you guys think we’ll be seeing in, “Asylum of the Daleks”?
