A Special Look at: Asylum of the Daleks

Continuing from The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe is Asylum of the Daleks, Like The Name of the Doctor, I disliked it, because both stories require a descent amount of knowledge of the Classic Series in order to fully understand the context of things referenced, which only come off as nonsensical to the casual viewer. … Continue reading
