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

Originally there was a scene after the four had been reuninited in the museum where Amy had a "meltdown" and Rory assured her it was okay; this was cut due to pacing issues, which pleased Arthur Darvill as he disliked his performance in the scene. See more »

The Doctor: Saving her. This box is the ultimate prision. You can't even escape by dying. It forces you to stay alive.
Rory: But she's already dead!
The Doctor: Well, she mostly dead. the Pandorica can stasis lock her that way. Now all it needs now is a scan of her living DNA, and it'll restore her.

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.
