Doctor Who Returns Tonight With ‘Asylum Of The Daleks’

Doctor Who finally returns tonight.

The time has come! We’re into the last few hours before Doctor Who Series 7 kicks off with Asylum Of The Daleks. To get you in the mood, the synopsis for the episode is below!

1/14. Matt Smith returns as the oldest time-traveller in the universe. The Doctor, Amy and Rory are kidnapped by their deadly foe the Daleks and forced to go on a seemingly impossible mission – to enter the Asylum, a planetary prison containing the most terrifying and insane of the aliens’ kind. They need an escape route, and fast – but with a mad, mechanised army closing in, and the Ponds’ relationship in meltdown, it is up to the Time Lord to save not only their lives but his friends’ marriage. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill co-star.
