Did You Know?


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 »


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.

Narrator: According to legend, wherever the Pandorica was taken, throughout its long history, the Centurion would be there, guarding it. He appears as an iconic image in the artwork of many cultures, and there are several documented accounts of his appearances and his warnings to the many who attempted to open the box before its time. His last recorded appearance was during the London Blitz in 1941. The warehouse where the Pandorica was...

Doctor Who no more
17 July 2010 | by Syra526See all my reviews

The whole season was worthless. I remember watching the show as a kid and finding it interesting but nothing really worth my time. When it came back with RTD holding the reins, it was brilliant. That first season with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor made me actually take a step back and say 'Well finally there is something to waste an hour on every week.' Of course I was upset when David Tennant took over, it took a few episodes for me to get used to him, but IMHO he turned out to be the best. Now he's gone and in all fairness to Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, I had to give Matt Smith a chance too. Wrong, wrong and really, really wrong. I wasted 13 hrs. watching that travesty and I would just like to ask for a refund. If it was canceled tomorrow I wouldn't even flinch. I put the 5th season of Doctor Who in the same category as I put the Torchwood disaster, Children of Earth. A waste of time that should be totally disregarded by anyone who calls themselves a fan.
