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 »

At last!

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.
