Before I go further, I will try to stay away from spoilers as much as I can but some aspects might have to be touched upon. Just to make you aware...
Asylum of the Daleks follows the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams as they are brought before the Dalek Parliament and are forced to help them by going to the Dalek Asylum, where a ship was said to
crash into and potentially release the most insane Daleks into the universe.
To say more would be spoiling the wonderful, startling, and often heartbreaking surprises that Stephen Moffat and company have cooked up for us. The performances are, as expected excellent. Matt Smith is clearly having the time of his life as the Doctor, as he should. However, my favorite performance of the episode is that of an actress names Jenna-Louise Coleman playing Oswin. To say more about this character would be spoiling but she makes you fall in love with her and causes you to root for her character in ways you never expected.
To close, Asylum of the Daleks is a definite strong episode to kick things off this season and a fun one to boot as Moffat brings the nostalgia factor to the proceedings with Daleks from just about every era of Doctor Who dating back from the days of William Hartnell. That alone is enough to make you sit down and watch the episode!
FINAL RATING: A+
