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

The scene in which the Doctor gives a final speech to young Amelia was not filmed with Matt Smith and Caitlin Blackwood on the same set. Smith's dialogue was shot first in the bedroom set, while the corner with the bed was recreated and filmed with Blackwood as a pick-up. Blackwood fell asleep during filming. See more »

Goofs

Around the time when the Doctor is taking the satellite dish off the roof to see if he could use it to hear his TARDIS, you can see a bird fly over. At the point when this happens every other sign of life is gone and they are the only living thing due to the fact that they are all anomalies, so it is impossible for a bird to still exist.

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.
