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 »

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

The Doctor: Earth alone in the sky. Lets go and have a look.
[Holding out his are with the manipulator on it]
The Doctor: You put your hand there. Don't worry, should be safe.
Rory: That's not what I'm worried about!

Welcome Matt Smith , Oh and BOW TIES ARE COOL
26 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The doctor , the master of the universe , the time lord , the lover of all things good.

Does Matt smith bring all those elements to the role? Yes , Yes he does , i was skeptical at first , but now having seen a entire season with Matt smith , i can honestly say hes taken on the role with sheer class , i Absolutely love him.... , the writers have done well , its not easy writing in a new doctor , all actors/actress's have their own way of bringing their own unique quality's to the role , and Matt and the storyline have blended in extremely well.

The episode was a emotional roller coaster , and at times , slightly confusing , considering the show is aimed at 11 to 16 year olds , i was extremely shocked to see such a complex story line , however the actors and writers have pulled it off , Matt smiths career is off to a Big Bang!
