Episode 1, Asylum of the Daleks

You know about the hate between the Doctor and the Daleks, right? You might never believe that the Parliament of the Daleks would ask the Doctor to save them, but that happened in the first episode of the series 7.

The Asylum of the Daleks, the place where all the insane and the uncontrollable of the Daleks had been sent for ages. The place where the “normal” Daleks were so afraid to go they had to send their Nemesis in order to find out about the strange signal being send from there. The place where a spaceship penetrated the force field surrounding the planete and crashed on the surface, where a beautiful girl-junior entertainments manager was hiding out for an year in the wrecked spaceship hacking the most advanced warrior race the universe has ever known.

Finally, the place were we all meet the future Doctor’s companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman. Surprise! You were wrong to expect to meet her after Amy and Rory’s departure in the fifth episode… but that’s the beauty of the time travel: you don’t always meet in the same order. Remember the Doctor’s and River Song’s story. It’s too fast to say if the new companion’s story is going to happen the same, but the expectations to watch as it happens are GREAT!

Have you watch the episode? Than you already know the story. If you haven’t yet watch it you should know that the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams were kidnapped and taken to the Parliament of the Daleks. In order to save the Daleks (and themselves), they were send to the Asylum of the Daleks to stop the force field surrounding the planet in order to be purged by the Daleks from the spaceship from the orbit.

They had help from the brilliant girl hiding on the surface, and the Doctor decided to try and save her also. And… that’s all what I am going to say. I don’t want to spoil the surprise for the people that haven’t watch the episode. It’s a great story, I enjoyed watching it.
