Why does 'Asylum of the Daleks' seem a likely title?
The Special Weapons Dalek was not explained much in the episode it featured, Remembrance of the Daleks however in the novelization of the episode it clearly states that the ''enormous power source required for its weapon resulted in high levels of radiation being released and altering the structure of the Dalek's brain, resulting in insanity.''.
Now, an Asylum is a place where (usually, but not in this case) people who are insane are taken to 'live' and be locked up, Similar to Bedlam Hospital in Shakespearean Times. We have also seen broken Daleks (dirtied up from the classic series) which could be old, dead or broken daleks which have also been in this Dalek 'Asylum.
Could the title be true or just another hoax like Extermination of the Daleks?
As of this moment I believe this is the correct title so shall add it to our Series 7 page, but will add To be Announced to it, just to satisfy anyone who doesn't fancy it being classed as confirmed yet. :) - Skaro.
