When an unknown Van Gogh painting is found in a house in France in World War II, it's pretty obvious who it's meant for. It's left to Prime Minister Winston Churchill to try and contact the Doctor and does so in a round about way via an imprisoned Dr. River Song. The work is called Pandorica Opens, the Pandorica being a mythical enclosure for the most dangerous thing in the universe. The Doctor soon finds themselves in Roman Britain where at Stonehenge they discover the fabled Pandorica. Rory, who was supposed to have been erased from time and never existed, is now a Roman soldier but Amy doesn't recognize him. River travels to the future in the TARDIS and discovers something important in Amy's room. Written by
Did You Know?
When Dorium is talking to River at the beginning, they mention time travel. Dorium says he has a vortex manipulator that was taken off the wrist of a handsome time agent. This is a nod to Captain Jack Harkness, who was a character with the previous 2 regenerations of the Doctor. See more
When Amy is left to hide behind the Pandorica alone, on her close-up the back wall of this perfect prison wobbles. See more
There was a goblin, or a... trickster. Or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or... reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
