New Series 7 pic: The Doctor! Amy! Lots of Daleks!

August 2nd, 2012
Warning! This article and its comments may contain spoilers...

The BBC has just unveiled a brand new promotional image for the seventh series of Doctor Who – we are sure you’ll agree that this one really is quite something!

Living up to Karen Gillan’s promise that this year’s series is filled with “movie style” epicness, the picture – which can only be described as cinematic – depicts a slightly worse for wear Doctor carrying (who appears to be in an even stickier situation…) out of flames. But fire’s not the only thing that is engulfing them – check it out for yourself below!

In the opening episode, Asylum of the Daleks, the Doctor’s iconic foes return (every version of them ever – no biggie!), and it’s been said that they’re “worse than ever”

Above –
The Doctor and Amy Pond return… and so do the Daleks!

Don’t forget the new 90 second trailer for the series is released online at 6am today!

    Oh no Amelia, does it really come down to her death, i hope not! I might cry looking at this picture! I can’t wait though to see the new trailer!

    She won’t die, she is the preverbal bad penny that you just can’t seem to get rid off!

    This is from the first episode, though. :) Amy & Rory leave in the fifth one.

    To be honest, whilst seeing a large range of Daleks altogether is fantastic, I can’t help but think they should have updated the eyestalks on some of the Daleks. Can’t wait to see the episode, though!

    I think its better that the eyestalks stay the way they are for each type of Dalek as some notice the difference and plus it just looks cool :P

    The whole point of the episode is to keep the Daleks as original as possible. If you start tampering with them then what’s the point in bring them back at all.

    But the Cult of Skaro died. Dalek Thay and Dalek Jast died in the series 3 2 part episode. And Dalek Sec became part human and the Daleks killed him. Caan escaped but returned in series 4 finale and he probably died though may have escaped with davros.

    Yeah, TWWL!!! I’m seriously pumped that the Special Weapons Dalek is there! We didn’t get to see very much of it on the show (in spinoff media, it’s described as “the abomination” and said to have been greatly disliked by other Daleks because of it being different — maybe relevant to the whole “Asylum of the Daleks” thing). This looks to be a very interesting episode — perhaps this is a planet for Daleks so mad, so crazy, so *evil* that even other Daleks are afraid of them.

    Yeah, I’m not saying it’s him just that it’s the same model.
    Seriously doubt he’ll ever come back.

    My bad didn’t read it properly. I just read Dalek Sec same ID :P

    I know it’s just sad to see him carry her like that. I don’t like it when he loses his companions :( I think the trailer looks great and i always enjoy seeing River Song return.
