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

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.

Quotes

River Song: Amy! And the plastic centurion?
The Doctor: It's okay, he's on our side.
River Song: Really? I dated a Nestene duplicate once. Swappable heads. Do keep things fresh.

At last!
27 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Under Davies watch, Doctor Who became a mad rush of wackiness with incoherent stories and implausible deus ex machina endings.

Under Moffat, the series has improved significantly. Though they weren't all winners this season, Victory of the Daleks and the Upstairs Neighbor (I forget the exact title) were absolutely horrible, Moffat's finale' was absolutely perfect.

He tied in the entire series with things he's layered. He had a direction since the beginning, and followed it through competently.

While still maintaining a wackiness quota, Matt Smith's performance is stunning, and the finale shows us just how in deep he is with the character. You feel for the characters so much, and you want so BADLY to see the satisfying ending, and he gives it. He gives it without going over the top or pulling something out of his posterior.

I'm looking forward to next season, hoping they can overcome the rushed-out, hackneyed episodes that greatly suffered this otherwise great season. I foresee that the Doctor has nowhere to go but up after Davies, and with Moffat's brilliant storytelling, it WILL get better. It will.
