Cut and pasted from the Radio Times:

Matt Smith returns as the oldest time-traveller in the universe. The Doctor, Amy and Rory are kidnapped by their deadly foe the Daleks and forced to go on a seemingly impossible mission - to enter the Asylum, a planetary prison containing the most terrifying and insane of the aliens' kind. They need an escape route, and fast - but with a mad, mechanised army closing in, and the Ponds' relationship in meltdown, it is up to the Time Lord to save not only their lives but his friends' marriage.

What a great start to the new series. My mind is still buzzing with it all two days later! :-)

As per usual with Dr Who, I had very little clue re what the hell was going on! (beyond the broad outline). However, I have been totally smitten with Matt Smith's Doctor since Day 1 (he is definitely my favourite Doctor - I love his quirkiness and his sense of fun and his kind heart) and so I just love watching Matt bring the role to life. And I will say one thing - I love Amy Pond, but I also loved the Doctor's new companion - great independent strong female role model - just what we need!

Didn't like this episode. Not one of their best by any standards.

Quite liked the new companion, so will be interesting to see where they go with her.


I liked it and I LOVED the new companion!
