Storyline

The Daleks, Cybermen and others have imprisoned in the Pandorica the most dangerous creature in the universe - the Doctor, who they say will in the future destroy the universe. Moving to 1996, a preteen Amy Pond visits a museum with her Aunt and opens the Pandorica, only to find the adult version of herself inside. Traveling back and forth in time, the Doctor tries to make sense of it all and find River Song, who is also missing. He realizes that there is only one explanation for a starless universe.

Trivia

Todd Haynes wanted to first show the revelation that the TARDIS would appear at the reception in a small way with minor changes such as the glasses tinkling and chandelier shaking, and build it up from there. See more »

Goofs

When Amy wakes up in present time her nails are still painted orange as they've been. After greeting her parents and once the scene cuts to her phoning Rory (she's still in her pajamas) her nails are now painted red for the rest of the episode. See more »

Quotes

River Song: Right then. I have questions, but number one is this - what in the name of sanity have you got on your head?
The Doctor: It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool.
[a pause, then Amy grabs the fez off the Doctor's head and throws it into the air, where River shoots it]

A very satisfying conclusion to a superb 1st series.
27 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Absolute genius. To link back to the first episode and show us the clues he left sprinkled throughout the 1st series shows remarkable confidence from Steven Moffat. Such complexity also shows the respect he has for his audience's intelligence.

This 2 parter was the best season finale so far in 'New Who' and wipes away the memory of Tennant as 'Yoda' Doctor with the Master.

As for Matt Smith - brilliant as usual - especially in the more emotional scenes with young Amy and all handled a lot better than the somewhat over the top style we got from Tennant & Davies.

Whilst other dramas seem to lose their way ( Lost, Heroes ) Doctor Who goes from strength to strength - and as long as Matt and Steven are around I don't see that changing.
