Doctor Who - Dalekmania!

DOCTOR WHO: ASYLUM OF THE DALEKS

Meh. It was all right. OK, it was better than all right and certainly in comparison to the previous Dalek episode it was awesomeness squared, but does it make up for the delays and shortages of Who? That Moffat's rabid antispoiler phobia means none of the newspapers could review the ep and thus Season 7/33 has garnered less media attention than anything post-2005? Seriously, bar a casting decision (wow, companion actress playing someone else - ain't seen THAT since Amy... and Martha... and Romana...) and some plot twists at the end of the episode... what were they so worried about?! Sheesh...

It surprised me, to say the least... and I completely avoided spoilers. :-P

I liked it; whacking great fun. :-)

I am quite stunned by how much I liked it. I've written my own review (yes, been a while since I've done that) which is absolutely fawning by my standards. I should probably brace myself for disappointment from hereon...

By the nefarious powers of iview I have already seen the next episode. And I liked it even more than Ayslum.

If you can imagine Double the Fist trying to do a Blake's 7 episode with casting by the ghost of JNT and add EVEN MORE AWESOMENESS, then it's even better than that. I loved it.

I mean, the moment where the Doctor snogs Rory is about the most normal it gets...

Hope the music vid entertained.

I've definitely heard nothing but good things...

It did. You have a good ear for music that will surprise, bewilder and entertain me. In that order.

Well, that puts a lot of pressure on the next vid...
