The BBC has released a new trailer for the upcoming premiere episode of Doctor Who Series 7, entitled Asylum of the Daleks. Complete with the return of all versions of the iconic Daleks, including some from the Classic era, you can check out the new teaser at the bottom of this post.
Asylum of the Daleks begins with [WARNING: some minor spoilers ahead!] the Doctor being reunited with companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill respectively), who are dealing with some of their own real-life dilemmas. As the Doctor sweeps them into time and space again, they are captured by the Dalek Parliament, who demand that the Predator of the Daleks aka The Doctor (we assume so) is sent into the Asylum of the Daleks to destroy those therein.
Asylum of the Daleks is written by showrunner Steven Moffat and features the return of the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith. The episode kicks off the highly anticipated seventh series of Nu Who, which will be split in two: part one playing during the Fall, the Christmas Special introducing new companion Clara played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, and then part two concluding the series during Spring 2013.
It is rumored that the conclusion of Series 7 will directly lead into Series 8 during 2013 for the 50th anniversary of the longest running Science Fiction television show.
Asylum of the Daleks premieres on BBC and BBC America on Saturday, September 1.
