Matt Smith as the Doctor in Asylum of the Daleks

Radio Times Says September 1st…

…and who are we to argue?

So, Doctor Who fans, Dalek fans and Karen Gillan fans, the time has been virtually formally announced. If the Radio Times are telling us to tune into BBC One on September 1st at 7.20 to watch Asylum of the Daleks, then we will!

According to the popular listings magazine, licenced from BBC Worldwide:

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. They need an escape route, and fast – but with an army of mad Daleks closing in, and the Ponds’ relationship in meltdown, it is up to the Doctor to save not only their lives but his friends’ marriage.

Written by Steven Moffat and starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill and others that we haven’t been told about as yet, the episode also features more Daleks than we’ve ever seen before.

That alone is pretty cool, don’t you think?

So, Kasterborites, this is it. We have a date. We have a time. Now we can start planning our Doctor Who Series 7 viewing parties, block-book the family television for five weeks and generally plan a shorter-than-usual annual timey-wimey-out.
