Here I was, thinking I wasn’t going to get to see the new episode of Doctor Who, and I was totally wrong. Last night I got to see Asylum of the Daleks, and I was very impressed. The writing was excellent, it was the perfect balance of funny and slightly scary, and best of all, there were Daleks! (The Daleks were very absent last season and sorely missed.)
My biggest concern going into this season was the new companion. The best and worst part of Who is the fact that they change it frequently enough to keep it fresh. Every few years a new companion is introduced, and some take longer to like than others. The new companion was in Asylum, and I felt that her introduction was a bit reminiscent of the introduction we were given to River Song. I’m really curious to see how it’s all going to work out with her. However, I really liked her. I think she’ll be a nice change of pace from Amy and Rory.
All in all, I can’t wait for the rest of the season!
