The Prequel to “Asylum of the Daleks” You (Probably) Didn’t See

Thanks to Pond Life, we all know how Amy and Rory came to the point where they were SPOILER WARNING kidnapped by the Daleks END SPOILER WARNING, but how did the Doctor find himself on Skaro?

In the opening moments of “Asylum of the Daleks,” the Doctor (Matt Smith) explained that he had been summoned by Darla via a dream message mentioning her daughter and directing him to the ancient home of the Daleks.

Well, here is that dream message — a surreal sequence penned by Steven Moffat himself — in which the Doctor is approached by a (very persistent) hooded man…

How cool was that? It started out light-hearted and grew chilling by the end. It’s quite a contrast to Pond Life. I love how unflappable the Doctor is — but then again, I imagine this sort of thing happens to him fairly regularly. However, when he finally pronounced the name “Skaro”… was that… fear in his eyes?

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it, as that was my wish in posting it — that fans who were not aware of the prelude’s existence could see it. It’s not absolutely necessary in order to enjoy the main story, but adds a bit of flavor.


Oh, yeah? Sez you!
