Ah, finally the mystery of why the daleks have whisks is explained. For making souffles!

I haven't seen it yet. Missed the start through watching City beat QPR and now I have a party to go to. At least it's been recorded on to video tape*

Bam, I thought that was brilliant. Didn't expect to see Jenna, didn't see the twist coming, at all. I'm excited to think how that all works out in the end.

@Danny - I think there were a couple of old school ones I saw. I was chuffed that I saw the Heavy Weapons Dalek, though it was very blink-and-you'll-miss-it. I did hear that they did use examples of every Dalek model ever before used somewhere in the episode.

Sadly, the Heavy Weapons Dalek was the only one I saw. frown

Decent ep and wiping the Dalek memory was an interesting concept

I liked the new companion, but then again, it wasn't her was it

Or wasn't it? I'm genuinely fascinated to see how that is resolved. smile

@Danny - I may have to go back through that episode on iPlayer just to hunt for the other Daleks. I'm...almost sure I saw an old style Dalek, apart from the heavy-weapons one.

Brilliant start to the new series, that twist with the new companion is really interesting and I'm trying to figure it out:


Was very pleased about the play on words with "Asylum of the Daleks", glad it used the other meaning of the word rather than it being an ep about the daleks having to beg.

Also, totally going to make a guess about what will happen in the ep where Rory and Amy leave:


Quite optimistic about the approach of treating each ep as a mini-movie, have a feeling this season could be great. New companion intro was good too, much better than when Catherine Tate was introduced (I hated that xmas ep, and stopped watching the show once it was announced that she was becoming a regular).

I cannot wait for Amy and Rory to piss off. Matt Smith is a great Doctor, but those two have been bogging him down. I've found them very unlikable, Amy especially. And the entire "I broke it off with you because I can't have children after Demon's Run" isn't the type of subject matter that belongs in Doctor Who to me. It's trying to 'grow up' with the fans and I don't feel it needs to. It's becoming way too serious for me, I miss the pantomime feel it used to have. The only good episode with Pond I can remember is the one with Vincent Van Gough, and even then, it wasn't very Doctor Who.

Sorry, that's just a rant really. I feel I'll love the new companion, but her introduction in Asylum has confused me.

As for the episode, I was very pleased.  I agree with tnuk that it wasn't at all what I was expecting from the advertising, but I liked the way it turned out, especially the tone.

He is THE Doctor.

I really need to re-watch this episode when everything isn't spinning. I feel like half of what happened got lost on me because of dizziness. Still loved it just need to re-watch. I didn't even realise that the girl was supposed to be the new companion. Shows how much I've been paying attention to news.

Hmm, I like calling him Who because it sounds cool.  I don't care what it makes me sound like.

I stand by the nanobot thing though.  I just can't believe that Moffat would reuse the whole River Song/first meet at the end plot again.

Nanogenes! They've been used before.

Also Louis he really didn't reuse it. She didn't even know who he was which is a good thing. It would be interesting if he went around with her as a Dalek but that can't happen.

That would be so awesome. The Doctor with a dalek companion would be an amazing episode or season of episodes, I'm sure. The dalek's main suggestion for solving problems could be to exterminate the people having the problem.

I actually just recently saw one of the Peter Cushing Doctor Who movies and his name was actually Dr. Who. If it's good enough for Peter Cushing, it's good enough for you!

Anyway, just saw the season premiere and loved it. I think the current incarnation of the series just keeps getting better and better.

One bit about Oswin, how at the end she says "Remember me" then looks towards the camera... I just get that feeling that she's looking to something off-screen that will explain her re-appearance in a few months time (even though everything she can see is technically not real).
... Or failing that she's breaking the 4th wall, which would kinda disappoint me a bit.

/edit - and Danny, having watched it again, immediately after that line, as the Doctor is running through the explodey room, the Dalek nearest the camera is an old-school model! big grin

I've thought for years that it would be fascinating for the Doctor to have a defective Dalek (one that wasn't hate-filled and obsessed with exterminating) as a companion. The fact that this episode came so close yet turned away for... some reason, makes it impossible for me to give Asylum of the Daleks any other rating than:

THEY WASTED A PERFECTLY AWESOME PLOT! mad

Didn't we just establish that they don't have the same name? One of them is called the Doctor, the other is called Doctor Who. One is a Time Lord (half human if you believe the revelations surrounding his 8th incarnation) and the other is fully human. One stole a TARDIS, the other built it and refers to it as simply "TARDIS" as though it was the name of the ship and not the type of vessel. However, both of them have had adventures with Bernard Cribbins, I'll grant you that.

But she is supposed to be the next companion... I mean, I'm baffled but excited to see just how she returns.

I loved Rory's dad, Brian. The special effects were what I've come to expect from DW, but Jesus Christ the engine and blue plasma/flames coming off of Solomon's ship looked terrible.

And the Doctor kissed Rory on the lips, then went on to call his dad "delicious". wtf?

Sorry--was being intentionally obtuse for the purpose of humor. I should have asked DaveMason to post it instead.

Anyway...tonight's episode was alright. I am really looking forward to next week. Farscape/Who crossover!!!

Great episode! Had its flaws but there was so much to like about it. Mark Williams was great, the imagination behind the design of the ship just brilliant and Mitchell & Webb as the voices of the robots...well certainly novel tongue

Solomon's engines looked okay to me - the rest of the effects were very well done IMO.

'Dinosaurs on a Spaceship' was definitely a weaker episode; Rory's father annoyed me from the start; I was hoping he'd die horribly... and quickly. The two camp robots were also rather irritating. I thought Riddell, the big game hunter was a good character at least and Solomon was a decent villain.

Well, that's almost everything that I wanted to say about the episode, neatly packaged for me by Tweek. Mark Williams wasn't used well at all, Mitchell and Webb were wasted as robots that looked and sounded straight out of the Teletubbies, and overall the episode wasted a decent premise.

There was little point in Nefertiti (surely the TARDIS is worth more?), but Solomon was a pretty good bad guy. Shame he got all explodey at the end. It might have been nice to see him again.

It was good to see Rory putting his skills to use, and great to see an episode whose plotline revolved around events not located on Earth in the 20th Century.

Words cannot describe the let down factor when it was revealed he's talking about Nefertiti. I was all like "sure, let him have it" after that.

The idea of a Triceratops that likes playing Fetch made me smile, and at least the robots obeyed the Forth Law of Robotics (Any AI being forcibly deactivated will sing Daisy, Daisy.) So, amusing in parts, but not a classic.

Have you seen tin cup?

On the ep itself, robots reminded me of fifth element and were certainly a waste of a cameo. Also felt like a rip off of Jurassic park with the hunter and the raptors, was waiting for him to say "Clever girl".

Golf ball. Not sure whether it would bounce the distance depicted, or necessarily attract a Triceratops, but it would bounce longer than a wiff-waff ball.

Yeah, I have to say I thought that Solomon was talking about the TARDIS as well. In fact I was sort of predicting the following plot points as he said it. So...yeah...Egyptian Queen instead.

It's the TARDIS, but whereas the Doctor can render himself worthless, the TARDIS is a TARDIS. The only thing I can think of is that the IV scanner or whatever genuinely scanned and saw "20th century police box...meh"
Otherwise, a TARDIS! Value: Astronomical. Surely?

Either that or Solomon saw it and thought to himself "claim alien ship...can't control it, ends with me in mortal peril. Claim Time Lord ship...er...no, never mind."

Rather not think too much about that, takes away from what I liked about the episode. Had its flaws, etc.

I liked it way more than the last two, The Gunslinger is like one of the coolest villains yet. The sound of his leg thudding when he walks, his sweet-ass gun, his cyborg eye (even if it was a little Terminator-y, but perhaps that's what they were going for), etc.

The Doctor's dark side went crazy! Next week's ep is the one I've been looking forward to the most. big grin

I've been watching some "old" DW recently (by "old" I mean CE and DT) and I'm so happy that the recently instalments have had so little to do with Earth in the modern era. RTD actually felt that the show needed the "grounding influence" of the families and friends of the companions. I'm glad Moffat has shown him just how wrong he was (although maybe it needed that element to get more people to watch it in the first place).
