Some more story hints for Doctor Who Series 7 are revealed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine.

Here’s the highlights:

Asylum of the Daleks (episode 1)

  • Episode 1 is “full on sci-fi” with spaceships and alien planets (Skaro?)
  • The Paradigm Daleks have “had some work done” on them

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (episode 2):

  • Described as “sci-fi with a hint of historical”
  • It’s set on a ship heading towards Earth, and Earth is on alert
  • The main villain Solomon (David Bradley) is a “half businessman, half Somali pirate.” He’s motivated by greed and profit
  • Rory to the Doctor: “Why can’t you just phone ahead?”

Cubed (TBC episode 4):

  • A story focused around Amy and Rory’s years with the Doctor before their final adventure
  • It centres on a very unusual invasion of Earth
  • Story was inspired by the notion that if things just appear and they’re free, people will take them
  • UNIT return because if there was an alien invasion, you need them to deal with it
  • The Doctor: “There is so much to see, Amy – and I don’t want to miss it. Any of it. Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things. I’m running to them. Before they flare and fade forever.”

Writer Chris Chibnall also confirms he was supposed to pen a total of three episodes for Series 7, but now has other commitments on ITV drama Broadchurch.
