BBC has released synopsis of the first three episodes of DOCTOR WHO Season/Series 7. Keep in mind, these are officially issued descriptions and, thus, aren't likely to contain anything terribly spoilery.
Episode 1: Asylum Of The Daleks - 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.
Episode 2: Dinosaurs On A Spaceship - 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 onboard who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.
Episode 3: A Town Called Mercy - The Doctor gets a Stetson (and a gun!), and finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg, who goes by the name of the Gunslinger. But who is he and what does he want? The answer seems to lie with the mysterious, Kahler-Jex, an alien doctor (yes another one!) whose initial appearance is hiding a dark secret.
Al in all, we know know the titles and authors of the first five Season/Series 7 episodes. Asylum of the Daleks is scripted by current WHO mastermind Steven Moffat, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship is written by Chris Chibnall (S5's The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood) , A Town Called Mercy is by Toby Whithouse (S5's The Vampires of Venice and S6's The God Complex), The Power of Three by Chris Chibnall, and The Angels Take Manhattan - which exits current companions Amy and Rory - is by Steven Moffat.
Some new images from this first batch of episodes are also making the rounds. A few of them are presentd here, but you can JUMP TO BBC for a broader (and EMBIGGENABLE!) selction. Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. My 5 year old heard rthat title and practically pooped himself. This may well be the first DOCTOR WHO episode he watches...
2) matters of SPOILAGE should be handled with thoughtful consideration and sensitivity. Posts containing SPOILERS should clearly state that a SPOILER exists in its topic/headline and should never state the spoiler itself . "** SPOILER ** Regarding Rory" is OK, for example. "** SPOILER ** Battle of Zarathustra" is fine as well. " **SPOILER** Why did everyone die?" Is NOT good.
3) converse, agree, disagree, and question as much as you want - but the freedom to do so is NOT a license to be rude, crass, disrespectful, or uncivilized in any way. Not remaining courteous and civil, as well as TROLLING or undertaking sensational efforts to ignite controversy, will result in banning. Lack of courtesy may receive one (1) warning before a ban is instigated. Obvious Trolling or Spamming will result in summary banning with no warning. One word posts intended to bump-up any Docback's figures on AICN's "Top Talkbacks" sidebar will be considered actionable Spam - they not only complicate efforts to access Docback from mobile devices, but impede readers' abilities to follow or engage in flowing conversation.
