Bio not provided
The daleks not only didn't exterminate in this episode. They didn't for EVERY EPISODE SINCE!!!!!!! The daleks have to kill someone we care about and have them stay dead to establish how serious the threat is. They are just exposition filled daleks who have as good as a shot as stormtroopers. and they don't even fire. They only shot at a character in one scene in Asylum and it is the same in the day and time of the Doctor. I was literally saying in the day of the doctor: Gun the citizens down, we need to see how serious the time war is. but nope they are turned into wusses. Also the last time they killed someone we cared about was in Evolution of the Daleks (Solomon).

@The Genie Wow! I still don't like Asylum and I don't see the positive opinions. But I get where you and everyone else is coming from. I DO like Oswin and the scenes between intensive care and Oswins goodbye are brilliant (though if Oswin said that the Daleks in intensive care were from the Time War it would've made sense for the design and their hatred for the doctor).

@Antee991166 He forgot to mention the divorce subplot which, for me, killed the episode and took the focus away from the supposedly scary Daleks. No seriously, I forget that they're in the episode.

@Chris502 That's surprisingly true. In both Destiny and Resurrection of the daleks they were desperate for davros' help despite them disliking him
The day of the Doctor. Duh.
Followed by a Christmas carol and the time of the doctor (though I dislike the episode as a whole)

@Jeavons @MichaelBoon But didn't the doctor fix everything and the only crack left was on trenzalore?
The big bang was a bit of a let down (it was still good, just didn't live up the expectations of the pandorica opens) so I'm choosing The parting of the ways. In my opinion, the best nuwho regeneration story.

Boy this is a toughie, but I'm picking the Pandorica purely because the stakes were higher. The sound of drums was really good but it never amounted to the pandorica

@supermoff What was wrong with what followed Utopia? My second favourite finale in my opinion (under the parting of the ways).
But I completely agree with your opinion of Toby Whithouse. He is my favourite recurring NuWho writer (alongside Mark Gatiss and Neil Gaiman) and yes that includes Steven Moffat (He has his bad ones: The Beast Below and Asylum of the Daleks are my picks)

Ah episode 11. Usually holds a weaker episode. Though I am gonna choose The God Complex. Literally Nightmare inducing
@Pockydon Instead of a dalek FPS, how about a Time War FPS.

Since I already gave human nature/the family of blood their score last time. I'll give forest of the dead (the scariest episode by far) their point here.

VERY hard seeing as I'm pitting Human Nature vs Silence in the Library vs Fathers day vs The impossible Planet. (LKH was bad and CW was just solid).
I'm picking Human Nature followed by forest of the dead and on Friday: The Doctor Dances (Blink wasn't as good)

@Amy the Consulting Key Ring Yeah, they also make the story seem less rushed
Hmm amy's choice or AGMGTW? Amy's choice was slightly better because it wasn't as drawn out

@Galax @JolomontheDestroyer But in the parting of the ways, The Daleks killed a group of innocent people because they were there. That's very Dalek. Now Rory was able to escape a group of daleks unharmed. The daleks need three things to be scary. One: The doctor's reaction. It needs to be out of fear or hatred (which is what this episode handles well) and two: they need to be a threat. This is a species where as soon as you hear them say 'Exterminate' you know you're screwed. But no-one actually died on-screen (except maybe Oswin) so it was a huge disappointment. Three: they need to kill someone we DO care about. This is a problem with the series overall as the only time that happened was in A Town Called Mercy with Isaac. That makes the threat very real as no main character is safe. Case in point: Solomon from DIM. Yeah that episode sucked, but Solomon was a character we cared about and when he was killed, that was one of the very few times where the Daleks became a threat (I said few).
Thank you btw for making that twist perfect again. I do like character development. I just like character development that makes sense. The Divorce makes amy very out of character as she treats rory like dirt. Also, they didn't really change. Amy and Rory still love each other as in series 6 before. Also, why was Rory a bumbling idiot again. He made the Cybermen wet themselves (practically) yet here, he was being dumb to a dalek.

@Galax @JolomontheDestroyer Oswin was awesome, Whilst it was fun to play Dalek Bingo, I was hugely disappointed with that aspect, The daleks were not scary as they didn't kill anyone, dialogue is ok, the twist was brilliant though why did Oswin sound human? (use quote to answer that), The acting was the best part of it (also <3 Coleman) the pacing was a little off (time how long the daleks are in it not counting the puppets), Nick Hurran is my Favourite director and that hallucination scene whilst pointless was pretty creepy and I HATED the Divorce storyline e.g. it never gets mentioned again, it came right out of nowhere (and don't say Pond Life because not many people saw that and it wasn't clear anyway), and it was pointless and in the way of the titular Daleks.
Any arguments against that?
Look it's not just the episode itself that annoys me it's people's reaction to it. No, it's not Moffat's worse story (The Beast below was) but it was still bad.
Just accept it guys: MOFFAT ISN'T PERFECT!!!!!!
(though I sometimes like the guy, his RTD era and early Smith episodes were fantastic)

Also, yes, I'm defending Moffatt for once though I haven't quite forgiven him for Series 7 part 1.
