DOCTOR WHO Series 7 Premiere Episode Synopsis

DOCTOR WHO Series 7 Premiere Episode Synopsis

The Doctor returns with Amy and Rory this Autumn for the first half of Series 7. The BBC has released episode synopsis for the first three episodes, so with that in mind, hit the jump for the details and a few other rumors and possible spoilers...

After a slightly disappointing sixth series of the Worlds longest running science fiction series, Doctor Who is making it's triumphant return to the screen this Autumn/Fall.

We already know a few little bits - and a few rumors - so here is a bit of a catch up and official descriptions from the BBC for the first three episodes.

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.

Now we also know someone dies midway through the season and the TARDIS crew will be joined by Rory's Dad (played by Mark Williams, or Mr Weasley to the Harry Potter fans). I personally can't see Rory dying again (what... like the third or fourth time) so my bet is on Amy.

We also know the fan favorite baddies of the modern era, The Weeping Angels, will be making as return as well as old firm villains The Daleks.

I'm really looking forward to this series, which I am guessing will appear on our screen towards the middle of October. We also know the TARDIS crew will go their separate ways in episode six, making way for the introduction of new companion Jenna-Lousie Coleman, who will be portraying the character Carla.

The few rumors flying around are Carla will be the daughter of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, played by actor Nicholas Courtney, who sadly passed away February last year.

Also rumored is the TARDIS will have a complete makeover in preparation for next years 50th Anniversary. Again, this is just a rumor - I personally don't see the point as the current TARDIS interior has only been around for a couple or series and, I have to admit, I am pretty attached to it.

The final rumor is the return of Neil Gaiman writing an episode (possibly episodes 12 and 13) of series 7. This would be fantastic as his episode in series 6, The Doctor's Wife, was by far the most compelling of the last series and probably one of the best written Doctor Who episodes ever.

And finally, The Doctor is getting a bit of a make over also. Check out the mauve/lilac number...

Daleks, Dinosaurs on A Spaceship, the Old West, the return of UNIT and the fall of the Ponds


Although the one negative is, the series is rumoured to begin late August / early September, but that means after the first 5 episodes are shown, its going for ANOTHER 3 MONTH BREAK, until Episode 6 introduces the new companion at Christmas. Im not looking forward to another break, I think it would have been much better to put the show on late October, then it would be done by late November and still given us a month long break to feel the impact of the Ponds departure before starting up at Christmas again. But, thats just my idea

@ dancingmonkey08 - totally agree, although every time they have aimed for a release date with the last three series it has been put back a little, so here's hoping.

Seriously though... dinosaurs. On a spaceship.

What? "a slightly disappointing sixth series"... Don't put that in the article like it's a fact. I personally think you're full of shit if you think that. The previous series was ace.

My article, my rules. Don't like it, stop whinging and write your own you muppet.

Who's whining? You write a terribly false article. The past season was great. Obviously you're not a fan. Also don't write articles if you can't handle other opinions. Call this guy a muppet? you're obviously a clown.

That guy called him full of shit first. He's entitled to his opinion and just because he doesn't think series 6 was 'ace' doesn't mean he isn't a fan.

Yes. Obviously I am not a fan.

With every episode apart from a couple of Troughtons, it is filmed near me and I go take photos, having met the majority of The Doctors, having all the audio dramas, written two fan audio dramas and I can be bothered to write an article for this website and do so regulary regarding Doctor Who.

I haven't a clue what I am talking about.

But yeah, please tell us how you contribute to this site. No, really, please do.
