Season 7 of ‘Doctor Who’ is only a week away and the BBC has decided to elevate the level of excitement by revealing another trailer for the first episode called ‘Asylum of the Daleks.’ As promised in their tweet, the trailer is “explosive” and “thrilling” and shows some new footage not seen in the first trailer for this episode.
Steven Moffat has repeatedly stated that this season will play more like mini blockbuster movies and by the promotion of the series so far, this seems to be the case. With two trailers already released, I wouldn’t be surprised if in the next week we’ll be seeing clips and TV spots.
In an interview with Radio Times, executive producer Caroline Skinner did mention the use of one special Dalek in this episode:
“Well, I’m good friends with Russell T Davies (Doctor Who’s showrunner during the Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant eras) and I knew Russell has a replica Dalek in his house in Manchester. So I asked him whether he’d like to lend it to us because, you know, the more Daleks the merrier. So we shipped it down. And it’s there on screen, in some of the final, climactic moments of the episode, actually. And having now ‘acted’ on the show, it’s now no longer a replica. It is an official ‘canonised’ Dalek. And Russell’s thrilled.”
See the Daleks in all their glory in this new trailer called ‘Predator of the Daleks:’
Kidnapped by his oldest foe, the Doctor is forced on an impossible mission – to a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter… the Asylum. A planetary prison confining the most terrifying and insane of their kind, the Doctor and the Ponds must find an escape route. But with Amy and Rory’s relationship in meltdown, and an army of mad Daleks closing in, it is up to the Doctor to save their lives, as well as the Pond’s marriage.
