Teaser trailer for the season 33 opener of Doctor Who, Asylum Of The Daleks.
As always the Beeb is being cagey about when exactly this will air, but at least we get a mini-introduction to the episode:
"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."The Daleks need saving... from Steven Moffat!
Great to see the most terrifying species in the universe being emasculated once more ("a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter"), but if nothing else this is supposedly the episode that uses every iteration of Dalek in it, which should make for some decent eye candy.
Of course, don't be surprised if they're just tucked away in the background of some wide shot...
