Five years of Doctor Who...

The Big Bang

It’s the season finale of Doctor Who! And that, naturally, leaves us with some huge questions that need to be answered. While Steven Moffat is famous for his anti-climactic cliff-hanger resolutions, he’s set us up with four scenarios that cannot be explained, resolved or shuffled around with a single line or action, and in honour of this unique situation, we’ve ditched the usual preview format for a week. Read on as we ask the questions that matter...

 

NOTE- There is spoilers for Episode 12 in this article. However, we know NOTHING of Episode 13, and have totally avoided spoilers. Everything in this article is guesswork on our behalf.

 

1- How can the Doctor possibly escape?

 

So, he’s trapped inside the now-opened ‘Pandorica’, surrounded by all of his greatest enemies, with all locked down. However, the Daleks and co have forgotten to strap up the most dangerous part of him- His mouth. We saw his Eleventh incarnation blab some of the ‘truth’ out of his nemesis’s at the end of The Pandorica Opens, and what’s’ to say he doesn’t do his normal thing and talk his way out of it all? The only other option is some other alarm to cause them all to flee. However, the Doctor is their first priority- always has been, always will be. Whatever could draw them away from their ultimate victory? The only plausible reason is a civil war amongst ‘The Alliance’.

 

Either that, or the Doctor –for once- doesn’t escape...

 

2- Is Amy really dead?

 

The episode closed with Amy Pond, reunited with her no-longer-never-born boyfriend Rory Williams, only for it to turn out he’s actually an Auton! A living, plastic person who immediately goes on to... shoot her! Shock! Horror! However, with actress Karen Gillan signed up for a second series, due to start filming in just over a week, so surely she can’t be dead...? Besides, a simple shot into a major character is way too simple for Doctor Who. Shot, maybe, but did she really die as a result? It’s going to be far more complicated. So complicated only the mind of Steven Moffat could possibly pull it out...

 

The synopsis for the next episode says “The only hope of the universe lies in the hands of a little lost girl who still believes in the stars”. Now, this is going to sound ridiculous, but what if Amelia Pond (The 10-year-old version of Amy from The Eleventh Hour) is still alive, and saves the world herself, and grows up to be the Amy that travels with the Doctor in Series Six, with the new Amy missing the memories of the old? Hmmm...

 

3. Who said that?

 

River Song is trapped inside the TARDIS, on one certain day: The date described as the end of “Amy’s time”.  But when she is inside the spaceship, she keeps hearing a voice. A voice saying one thing over and over, “Silence is coming.” Our first feeling was a master-villain, running everything behind the scenes, as was seemingly everyone else’s when we did a quick patrol of Doctor Who fan sites. Speculation doesn’t stop at the character behind the voice, but also the actor- Ian MacDiarmid (Darth Siddious in Star Wars), Julian Bleach (Davros), Philip Maddoc (A number of classic villains) are favourites, with interest for Lucious Malfoy himself, Jason Isaacs.

 

As far as character goes, Omega seems the most likely suggestion, the creator of Time Travel who first appeared in Jon Pertwee story The Three Doctors. The Dream Lord from Amy’s Choice was another likely suggestion, as was Prisoner Zero of Eleventh Hour fame. Then it all started to get a bit daft- The Black Guardian. Rose Tyler. The Master. The TARDIS. If you want our bet? It’s the Atraxi, that big eye-shaped space-enforcer from The Eleventh Hour, sending out a warning to the Earth, but only reaching River...

 

4. What is ‘The Alliance’?

 

Oh, come on- The Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Autons and everything else have come together to save the universe? It would even be a bit far-fetched if they’d decided to try and work together to defeat the Doctor. The Daleks are evil, plotting specimens, and the Cybermen are cool and calculating, (Sometimes overly so) but the Sontarans are spuds with adrenaline. All they do is declare war and fight it out. However, chiefs have been seen to do slightly more. Could we be in for a long-awaited “Smart Potato” story?

 

We reckon it’s an elaborate hoax from a greater enemy. Omega, anyone? The Master is the only other contender, and he died too recently to come back again. However, they did go the whole way of including those horrible, new multi-coloured Daleks, so there’s a chance that it’s real...
