‘Doctor Who’ Season 7 Episode Details; Images

3 years ago by  

With details slowly trickling in and time nudging closer to the highly-anticipated seventh season of  Doctor Who, the BBC released a set of new and somewhat spoilery images of the first three episodes of the upcoming season. In what is expected to be one of the best seasons yet, the Doctor (Matt Smith) will be joined by some familiar faces from the past and will even receive a new companion – but that means saying a teary final goodbye to his beloved Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill).

Check out the insanely awesome photos of the first three episode of Doctor Who series 7 “Asylum of the Daleks”, “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” and “A Town Called Mercy” :

Between these photos and the epic recently released trailer its getting difficult to contain the exciting for the upcoming season of Doctor Who – and the fact that the BBC still hasn’t let us know the exact date the new series will hit our television. In the meantime, check out descriptions of the three episodes shown in the images:

Asylum of the Daleks

In this “epic Dalek adventure” the Doctor is captured by his oldest foes and taken to Skaro, (the Dalek home-world). With Amy and Rory’s relationship in meltdown, The Doctor is forced on an impossible mission – to a place where even the Daleks are too terrified to enter… the Asylum, a snow-covered planetary prison confining the most disturbed and insane of their race. The Doctor must not only find an escape route but save the marriage (and lives) of his in-laws.

Asylum of the Daleks was recently screened at BFI Southbank on August 14th and will be screened at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival August23–25.

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

Taking place ten months after the events of “Asylum of the Daleks,” Dinosaurs on a Spaceship starts off in Ancient Egypt with The Doctor chilling out with Queen Nefertiti (Riann Steele). He soon receives an ominous call that an unmanned spaceship will crash into Earth in six hours. With Nefertiti in tow, he picks up an Edwardian big game hunter (Rupert Graves) and his faithful companions Amy and Rory – but accidentally ends up taking Rory’s father Brian (Mark Williams) on the TARDIS as well. They land on the spaceship and come face-to-face with the toothy smiley of two ankylosaurus dinosaurs – if that wasn’t enough, unbeknownst to The Doctor there is someone else onboard who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.

A Town Called Mercy

The Doctor and his companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams visit the American Frontier where he finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg cowboy, named Gunslinger. If that wasn’t enough, the Doctor encounters a mysterious, alien doctor named Kahler-Jex, who seems to be hiding a dark secret.

  1. CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS SEASON!!! I hope they bring back some old companions and characters like Martha, Captain Jack, maybe Gwen? I would also like to see some of the one off companions from some of the specials return. The Doctor’s Daughter?

  2. So excited for this!
    All three episodes sound epic. Let’s hope the rest of the season will be as well.

    • Series*

      • yeah in the uk, season are series, just another thing thats backwards between the uk and the us. it would be a lot easier if the us was like the rest of the world.

        • I’m not from the US.
          Around the world the word season is actually used more than series.
          A series is generally a word used to refer to an entire show or program, while a season is used to refer to a set of episodes for the particular year.

          Both words can be used though… there isn’t a right or wrong, so get of my back jack! ;)

          • Yeah I think season is pretty widely used, outside the US.

            But in the case of Doctor Who I always thought the old Who episodes were grouped into seasons – so I assumed they called it series to now confuse the new ones with the old episodes.

          • I said series because the show is British, and they promote it as something British. For example I am in to U.S shows such as Breaking Bad, and I refer to them as seasons. With shows over here in England, I call them series. I’m probably being far to picky.

            • I only started calling them seasons a few years ago – just avoids confusion.

            • I like Chinese food, but if I order Chinese I don’t do it whilst speaking Chinese (same principal… kinda ;))
              I’m not gonna change my way of thinking/speaking just because of [insert subject here]‘s country of origin.

  3. Dr. Who AND dinosaurs? COUNT ME IN!!

  4. I always thought Series referred to the entire thing where as season was one set of episodes such as Season 1,2,3 etc. Also I’m not liking the recent run of episode titles, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship? So now the Dr.Who team are just giving up on titles? Also the cyborg cowboy is called Gunslinger? They really couldn’t think of anything else.

    Maybe I’ll be wrong and this season will be great but this dosen’t fill me with much hope. Also weeping angels? Again? (They were in one of the first trailers)

    • Weeping angels are awesome! as long as they dont overuse them like the daleks. and as long as they keep some of the mystery.

    • I don’t know why you’re sounding so suprised mate, this show has been running for a very long time. With any show, not every episode is going to be something completely new AND good. It’s TV, they’re dramatically limited in production values. Unwise of you to expect so much.

  5. Not that I’m any great authority on dinosaurs, but I’d guess those two in the above photo are meant to be Allosaurs. Ankylosaurus was a heavily-armoured vegetarian (might want to avoid the club tail though).

    Some of the best – and funniest, it has to be said – Dalek moments over the years have involved hearing those voices occasionally becoming tinged with hysteria, so as much as the Daleks are overused, the idea of them having an insane asylum is an inspired one; a story precedent set up by Dalek Caan in “The Stolen Earth” and Journey’s End”. A perfect excuse to include the variants from every era as well.
