    Thoughts:

    • Skaro! I like...
    • Human-shaped Dalek infiltrators? Ok, that's a little creepy.
    • Hmm, new titles. Not so keen.
    • Wait... what? Jenna Louise-Coleman is in episode one? Oswin the Souffle Girl? Also, I like her!
    • "Don't be fair to the Daleks when they're firing me at a planet!"
    • Why is a wet, dark hallway of dead Daleks somehow creepier than live ones?
    • Calling it now: Oswin is
      Spoiler:
      a Dalek infiltrator who went a bit wrong.
    • Nanocloud... yep, that's creepy. Oh, and it got creepier with Dalek zombies. Kudos, Mr Moffat.
    • "Careful dear, you'll put someone's eye out." Yes, I definitely like her.
    • "Because we've had this conversation four times."
    • "I'm looking for reverse!"
    • Oh... so that's why the Ponds are having problems. Poor Amy.
    • Good old Oswin Oswald... but I will be very interested to find out how she becomes the Doctor's new companion!!


    Okay, I liked it. It wasn't utterly magnificent, but it was pretty good. Some new developments for the Daleks that might improve them quite a bit.

    Damn you Sealurk!!!! =P
    Brilliant start to the season!
    So, thats who the suprise was in episode 1!
    Eggsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssterminate!
    So the question is, how the hell does Osman fit into Clara?
    Those dead Daleks certainly were creepy, and the Dalek agents with stalks coming out of their heads...
    So, the Daleks now dont know who the Doctor is, interesting...

    Overall, a very good start to the season, and cant wait to see more!
    And no obvious story arcs!

    Damn you moffat, toying with us like that , he knew we all would know Jenna was the new companion, so he messed with us

    I agree, it was okay, but then I was expecting the world. would have liked more emphasis on the old model daleks, the ones that were shown were dusty so kinda blended together and most were RTD era daleks.

    Well I was totally shocked! I did not expect to see Oswin in this episode!! A complete surprise!!

    I need to watch it again and digest it some more before saying more, but I must say I really enjoyed the episode. Not one of the Moff's best, but thoroughly entertaining.

    So, it was definately Jenna playing her, cause I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me...
    This has led to a very interesting question... Who is she and how does she eventually become the Doctors companion...
    *shakes fist* Moffat!!!

    maybe they don't, Karen played a soothsayer in fires of Pompeii and Freema played Martha's cousin in series 2

    according to Moffat there are to be no arcs this year...

    Thats what I meant, I was happy that we wernt given a huge story, seeing as Moffat had said there wouldnt be...

    And about Jenna, this seemed to be way more than a coincidence, she was cast before the episode was filmed, and it appears in the same season!
    I think Moffat has plans...

    A excellent episode, considering it had the Daleks in it as the enemy.

    I hope Oswin is that intelligence when the Doctor meets up with her on that cruise ship or on her home planet, an they do not dumb her, it be nice to have someone more intelligence than the Doctor on the Tardis, an someone who is more interested in figuring out a way to save herself than the Doctor or planet earth.

    I like the way the Daleks memories of doctor has been erase.

    I wonder, what will be consequence of all those Daleks nano bots flowing around the Doctor. There a reason the Daleks gave his wrist brand, if he was immune to them they would not have brothered.

    I like Oswin character as well.

    Well, somewhat of an opening with bang

    Dalek infultraitors are fairly creepy, wonder how many people will e dressed as them for halloween?

    Also geting ot see more of Amy's modling career. 'Pouting at a camera', have to say I'm with rory on this one

    Spoiler:
    I thought the explination for why they broke up was actually fairly good, shows that they lack communication as a couple sometimes but at least showed some thought from the writers


    And Oswin! Such a sweet girl and clever too. If only she had joined them
    Spoiler:
    come on, who wouldnt' think it fun to see the Doctor wit ha human-Dalek copanion... jsut me and my brother? Oh well...
    Also, if you want to know why the Daleks hate you Doctor, you gve a pretty good show why when he discovered Dalek-Oswin. Having a go at her like she had dliberatly tricked him and telling her she wasn't human and when she flips at him suddenly backtracks and tries to remind her she's human.


    But now, things will eb very intersting for the Docot and his old enemies. It was fun playign spot the old daleks

    Next episode: DINOSAURS!!
    If found, is probably lost on the way to Azaroth or the Pegasus Galaxy

    Seemed to me that Nick Briggs was channelling Peter Sellers as Richard III for the Dalek Prime Minister's voice.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    An of cause we all know that the writers of Doctor who never lies.

    It obvious there a story arc there, whether it is to deal with Oswin herself, or those little machines that are inside the Doctory, she shouted something along the lines of "Do not forget" at the end there, they will certainly be following up the story line with the current Daleks an there new fleet of war ships as well.
    On top of that, I got a feeling that vision that Amy had will come into play as well.

    Doctor Who - a message from Steven Moffat and Jenna-Louise Coleman about tonight's surprise

    http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2012-...ights-surprise

    So, who got a whopping great surprise this evening when Jenna-Louise Coleman arrived on Doctor Who earlier than scheduled? Matt Smith’s latest companion made an unexpected first appearance in the series seven opener, Asylum of the Daleks, shocking TV viewers who believed she’d be making her debut in the 2012 Christmas special.

    Well, now that the secret’s out, we can share the thoughts of both Coleman and executive producer Steven Moffat regarding tonight’s bombshell.

    “Boo! Hello! Hope we gave you a good surprise!” the 26-year-old actress said. “Thanks to all the fans who kept it quiet! More to come...watch this space!”

    Moffat, who also penned tonight’s episode, said to RadioTimes.com:

    “I hope you all got a nice surprise when Jenna popped up in Doctor Who several months early. If so, that surprise came to you courtesy of the frankly magnificent ladies and gentlemen of the press, and of the many Doctor Who forums and blogs too. This show has been seen at four separate screenings, across four different countries and yet not one person gave one spoiler. From all of us on Doctor Who, a heartfelt thank you for helping us tell our story.”
