Asylum of the Daleks: latest images

The BBC have released new images to promote the forthcoming Asylum of the Daleks:



The episode is to be broadcast at 7:20pm this Saturday on BBC One.

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.

Guest stars: Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks); Anamaria Marinca (Darla) and Naomi Ryan (Cassandra)

Written by Steven Moffat; executive produced by Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner; produced by Marcus Wilson; and directed by Nick Hurran

Matt Smith appeared on BBC Radio One's Greg James Show yesterday afternoon to promote the return of the series, during which he discussed being in New York at the weekend for the premiere of Asylum of the Daleks for BBC America, his favourite moments on the series, and what he thinks about the potential for a female Doctor. The programme is available to listen to on the BBC iPlayer (42m in) for the next seven days.

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

Meanwhile, the Radio Times has listed Dinosaurs on a Spaceship to transmit at the even later time of 7:35pm the following week, making it the second latest time of broadcast since 2005 (with only Gridlock broadcast later at 7:40pm). BBC Programme Information has yet to confirm the time, which will be finalised later in the week.

An unmanned spaceship hurtles towards certain destruction - unless the Doctor can save it, and its impossible cargo... of dinosaurs!

By his side a ragtag gang of adventurers, a big game hunter, an Egyptian Queen and a surprised member of the Pond family. But little does the Doctor know there is someone else on board who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.

Guest stars: Riann Stelle (Queen Nefertiti); Rupert Graves (Riddell); Mark Williams (Brian Williams) and David Bradley (Solomon)

Writer: Chris Chibnall
Executive Producers: Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner
Producer: Marcus Wilson
Director: Saul Metzstein
