Asylum of the Daleks

Doctor Who Series 7 Broadcast Date Revealed!

At last! No sooner have we posted a summary about the current situation concerning Doctor Who Series 7 and scheduling that the news is released from the BFI screening of Asylum of the Daleks – it’s September 1st!

If you were like us and unable to either get a ticket or make it to London (or both) then you can at least get a glimpse of what happened via this gallery thoughtfully provided by the Official Doctor Who website, where you can catch a glimpse of Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill. The BBC also report that new images from Asylum of the Daleks will be available tomorrow (along with official news of the broadcast date, no doubt).

Lucky fans able to attend the screening of the Dalek-tastic first episode of the new run – the beginning of the end for the Ponds – will not only have had the chance to watch the episode, not only find out the date of the new series launch but also discover that the titles of the first five episodes have been confirmed as:

  1. Asylum of the Daleks
  2. Dinosaurs on a Spaceship
  3. A Town Called Mercy
  4. The Power of Three
  5. The Angels Take Manhattan

Previously only episodes 1, 2 and 3 had been confirmed with heavy suspicion about episode 5. Episode 4 was previously believed to have been called “Cubed”.

And if that wasn’t enough, Doctor Who companions past and present met up for the first time:

That’s a fangasm for another day…
