[Doctor Who] S07E01: Asylum of the Daleks

Watch Date: 2019-06-25

IMDb link.

Watched on: Amazon Prime Video India

Notes:

  • This “Rory and Amy are insecure in their marriage” business is tiresome by now; I wish they would find a new angle on their relationship. At least this time it wasn’t the Doctor being the Other Man. Also, absolutely no acknowledgement of River Song as a child, good or bad?
  • So now the Daleks have completely forgotten the Doctor. Oho. This kind of continues the theme of the previous season finale; but also feels very gimmicky.
  • Dat twist tho. And the souffle / milk / egg bit. Whatay.
  • But overall, it felt a bit too gimmicky. I hope the season picks up from this.

Edited to add: the Doctor fixing the Ponds’ marriage is very Hercule Poirot. This is more of a Christie homage that way than The Unicorn and the Wasp.
