Doctor Who News Arthur Darvill, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in Doctor Who: Asylum of the Daleks

The Other Asylum of the Daleks Prequel…

Did you enjoy Pond Life last week as a run-up to the spectacle that was Asylum of the Daleks?

It seems that there was another prequel created by the Doctor Who team, starring Matt Smith and written by Steven Moffat. Less domestic and more in tune with the episode, Asylum of the Daleks: Prequel was made available to BBC America viewers, but UK fans seem to have been largely overlooked, for one reason or another.

No matter – here it is now!

Now, I don’t know about you, but I enjoyed Pond Life – but this made a far more thrilling introduction to the episode, don’t you think?

(Cheers Scott!)

    A much better piece all round that sets things up for the episode. However, I couldn’t identify where the old Daleks were (apart from the Special Weapons one), any chance we could have Matt Smith’s Dr meet them properly in one of these web-isode extras?
