...Asylum of the Daleks, per THIS announcement over at BBC.
The title of the new story has already increased the excitement building around it. Could the ‘asylum’ be a place or is it some sort of protection? Or does the word take on a new and sinister meaning in this adventure?
...asks the BBC piece.
Personally, I'm kinda hoping Asylum refers to a place where crazy Daleks go to chill-out. I've always been fascinated by the notion of Daleks as neurotic and angry lifeforms stuck inside of these tank-like hardshells...that's gotta be one of the elements which makes 'em so damn belligerent, no? So, imagine that conceit...applied on top of a Dalek mental care facility...
To be very clear, I have no knowledge this is the case in any way, shape, or form. I'm just thinking out loud and for fun. Knowing Moffat's work, I rather doubt that the Asylum allusion would be as simple as I'm making it. Of course, my conjecture would, to an extent, be in keeping with The Moff's stated desire for "slutty titles and movie-poster plots" for the upcoming season/series, so we'll see.
A recent issue of DOCTOR WHO Magazine revealed that the episode we know now as Asylum would feature a Dalek from every era. Here's a video refresher of what that means...
Thanks to Sminkypinky for the heads-up re: the title announcement!
