You do realize that's a reference to the second Doctor's first story, The Pwer Of The Daleks?

All kinds of fuck yeah! Well worth the wait.

Jenna Louise Coleman was excellent.

Daleks were atmospheric and creepy, the new super robomen were pretty good.

I need to watch it again.

Wow - good episode. So the new companion is going to start out as or end up as a Dalek? Cool!

Re: 7X01 Asylum Of The Daleks (Grading/Discussion) (SPOILERS!)

as confusing as some of this episode was the pay off of the Daleks chanting "Doctor Who" was a total joy to watch. However one thing I did think was odd, was how the Doctor told Amy to hold on to scared, because it wasnt Dalek, when the whole reason he was there was because they were scared.

On a more serious point, ok so all the Daleks on the parliament of the Daleks I get, but where did Skaro and the Asylum come from, its a very long way from "every atom of your existence, I divide them"

Anyways all of this seems to distract from the appearance of Clara, which the show did an amazing job of keeping secret, going to interesting to see how she becomes the companion proper.

On another note I was hoping for more of the previous Daleks, was there really no big doors Special Weapons could have blown up.

ok so the first pay off I mention of "Doctor Who?" is the second pay off, but the first pay off of Clara being a Dalek seems to make the whole episode worth whatever faults I might like to nitpick.

im going to need to watch this one avian.

I got Sally Phelan lump in my throat when the converted human Dalek spoke to the Doctor.
It's also a iconic episode as last season the Doctor said he's made too much noise and needs to make a low profile.

Well we don't have a specific 'date' for when this episode took place...

We know Rose obliterated the Dalek's when the Gamestation was active... somewhere around the year 200,000 - 200,100... Pretty far in the future... safe to say the Dalek's prior to that happening weren't affected as we've seen the Dalek's several times since then.

So we can just assume that this episode took place somewhere before the year 200,000... not a big stretch lol

the Nina and Amy reunion was a bit easy at the end, but really they did very little in the episode, and I fear wont do anything really worthwhile ever again.
