Doctor Who, Asylum Of The Daleks: New Trailer

As the Doctor Who Season 7 premiere fast approaches, the BBC has released another tantalising trailer.

This one’s for the opening episode, “Asylum of the Daleks.”

It looks like it pays more than a stylistic nod to Star Wars, particularly with the Dalek eye popping up through the snow just like an imperial probe on Hoth.

Enjoy!

Doctor Who Season 7 premieres in the UK on Saturday 1 September, 7:35pm on BBC1.

Doctor Who Season 7 premieres in the US on Saturday 1 September, 9pm ET on BBC America.

Doctor Who: Five Essential Episodes

New to Doctor Who? Not a sci fi fan? Don’t let that put you off. Doctor Who has all the components of a truly classic TV drama series: Compelling storylines, outstanding performances from some of the best actors around, great scripts, a wry sense of humor, and moments that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.

Here’s my Who retrospective ahead of the upcoming Season 7 Premiere. This comes courtesy of the vastly talented crew at AOL TV.

We started a “5 Essential Episodes” section to help viewers who were ready to take the plunge into an existing show but didn’t have time to catch up on multiple previous seasons.

"Doctor Who", BBC

“Doctor Who”, BBC

We trained our spotlight onto five episodes from some of the best scripted comedies and dramas on TV that you need to see, including Fringe, The Good Wife and Doctor Who.

NB: I wrote “Doctor Who: 5 Essential Episodes” in August 2011 as an introduction to the series ahead of Season 6, so it doesn’t include any episodes from that season.

Looking back, I’d now add at least an honourable mention to Season 6, Episode 5, “The Doctor’s Wife.” Penned by the always terrific Neil Gaiman it explores the Doctor’s relationship with the enigmatic TARDIS, and hints at the complex personality and emotions concealed within the blue box.

Doctor Who Season 7 premieres in the UK on Saturday 1 September, 7:20pm on BBC1.

UPDATE: Doctor Who Season 7 premieres in the US on Saturday 1 September, 9pm ET on BBC America.

BBC America is launching Doctor Who Season 7 with “The Destinations of Doctor Who” special on Saturday, 25 August 2012 at 9pm ET. “Leave the beach towel at home and take a trip to the end of the earth this Saturday!”
