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

Steven Moffat had suggested that Matt Smith wear a fez in this episode to give the Doctor some character, as well as for comic relief. Others on the production staff, who had seen Smith's enthusiasm for costume items for the Doctor, were concerned that the fez might become a permanent part of the Doctor's wardrobe. Moffat had, however, already written the fez-destruction scene (in which, in one fluid movement, Amy throws the fez in the air and River shoots it) with this in mind. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: [last words to sleeping Amelia Pond] It's funny, I thought, if you could hear me, I could hang on, somehow. Silly me. Silly old Doctor. When you wake up, you'll have a mum and dad, and you won't even remember me. Well, you'll remember me a little. I'll be a story in your head. But that's OK: we're all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? Because it was, you know, it was the best: a daft old man, who stole a magic box and ran away. Did I ever tell you I stole it? Well, I borrowed it;...

deja vu anyone?
25 July 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The change of cast is always an adjustment for everyone, but by the end of Season 5 I got used to Matt Smith as the Doctor. In general, the cast - great.

The stories - OK. The fans of Russell T Davies seem to criticize this season. Steven Moffat fans are singing his praises, despite the obvious fact that neither of them wrote that many of the episodes.

The nag that I got from watching this season was a sense of Deja vu, the stories seemed familiar, safe and contrived. Before this season started I heard a lot of talk about how Moffat was to bring us a darker, deeper Doctor, which captured my interest. How was this going to work out? I asked myself; well pretty much same-old- same-old really! At the end of this season you will have a feeling of 'Well... oh... hmmm....good...now what?" and the lure of the line from River Song "Next is when everything changes", which was used almost from the very beginning of the new series (Even Captain Jack!).

Season 5 is enjoyable but forgettable, let's hope for more from season 6.
