The explosive season concludes with Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory’s (Arthur Darvill) heart-breaking farewell – a race against time through the streets of Manhattan. Will the Doctor really lose the Ponds forever?
In the premiere episode of this season, “Asylum of the Daleks,” the Doctor (Smith), has been kidnapped by his oldest foe and 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. With Amy (Gillan) and Rory’s (Darvill) relationship in meltdown and an army of mad Daleks closing in, it’s up to the Doctor to save their lives, as well as the Pond’s marriage.
