So, what’s in the Pandorica, then?

14th June 2010 • Blog Post by Seb Patrick •

Blimey, it’s crept up on us a bit (thanks to two low-key preceding episodes), but this Saturday, a MOFFAT SERIES FINALE begins. Exciting, isn’t it?

So naturally, it’s time to start speculating about the nature of the threat the Doctor and Amy will face, particularly given the tease of the “next time” trailer. I’ve got my theory – in fact, I’ve had it for a few weeks, now, and I also think I’m clearly not the only person to have it – which I’ll share after the jump. But what do you think? What’s causing the cracks? Who or what is in the Pandorica?

“There was a goblin. Or a trickster, or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it – one day it would just drop out of the sky, and tear down your world.”

“Daleks.. Cyber-ships, Sontaran, Slitheen, Chelonian, Nesteen Drahvin…” “What’s in there? What could justify all this?”

And it’s been said multiple times that whatever the “big bad” for this year is, it’s appeared in every episode of the series.

So… it’s the Doctor, isn’t it?

Seb Patrick once met Paul McGann, who immediately pretended to be Mark McGann. He writes for Den of Geek, BBC America, Film4 and the official Red Dwarf website, among others. He owns over thirty toy Daleks and wishes the Dapol factory tour was still open.
