Doctor Who – Series 5, Episode 12 (Finale) “The Pandorica Opens” ‘Next Time’ BBC Wales Trailers/Sneak Peeks/Promo Photos

BBC — June 12, 2010 —

The Doctor’s friends unite to send him a terrible warning; the Pandorica – which is said to contain the most feared being in all the cosmos – is opening, as the time travelling drama continues. But what’s inside, and can the Doctor stop it?

‘The Pandorica Opens’ is written by Steven Moffat and stars Matt Smith as the Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond.

EDIT/ Just watched Episode 11, “The Lodger” and am reading some rather unhappy reviews about it. It wasn’t by far the worst Doctor Who ever, but it certainly was not stellar. My spouses’ complaint/inquiry was why did the Doctor not use the key to the Tardis to bring it back as he has done previously? As far as I recall, he didn’t even try to use the key–and that was before the time instability issues were discovered, which I’m assuming is why he couldn’t. Seemed like a bit of a thrown-together episode without an eye on the smaller details. Still looking forward to the grand finale, though!

The series final (remember, “series” is what the UK calls “seasons” so this is not the end of the show!) of Doctor Who looks and sounds like it’s going to be amazingly epic. We’ve got the preview trailer and 8 images below for you. This stuff is all pretty spoilerific so don’t proceed any further if you hate that kind of thing. We love that kind of thing and think this promo is pretty damn good, as are all the images.

First, here’s more info on the episode from the Daily Mail:

“Every major enemy of the Time Lord will make an appearance in the finale of this series of Doctor Who.In a terrifying two part programme – entitled The Pandorica Opens – the Doctor will be confronted by many of his old foes.

The Daleks, Cybermen, Silurians, Judoon, Sontarans, Sycorax, Weevils and Autons, will all feature in the final show.”

The first half of the two-part finale will run June 19 in the UK and July 3 here in the US.

Doctor Who: Series 5.09 “Cold Blood” RIP Rory – Tribute Videos *SPOILERS*

It is common knowledge that the long-running BBC series, Doctor Who, is on Series 5 (31 in total) with a new Doctor played by Matt Smith, a new companion, “Amy Pond” (Karen Gillan), and assorted new recurring characters like Rory (Arthur Darvill), Amy’s boyfriend and River Song (Alex Kingston) who is the Doctor’s future wife.
Since the UK is 3 weeks ahead of the United States in viewing series 5, they of course are aware of events we have yet to see. Having myself just viewed Doctor Who: Series 5.09 “Cold Blood,”  (cont. scroll below videos)

doctorwhotvuk — June 19, 2010 — Major spoilers if you haven’t seen The Pandorica Opens!

theskarorevenger — May 29, 2010 — the nurse boy?
who is he?
but he saved the world from and evil crack which keeps geting bigger and bigger…

“Losing Rory”

AnonymousCatt — May 31, 2010 — Just a reworking of Rory’s ‘death’… I refuse to believe he isn’t coming back, by the way. This is basically just an excuse to put this scene to an instrumental I like… enjoy!

(cont.) I understand why folks are getting concerned about Rory, especially now that he seems to be doing something more than being an appendage for Amy. Once again though I’m going to take a page from UK Doctor Who viewers who have more perspective (translation: are episodes ahead of the US) and quote:

(2 weeks ago) Yep, check IMDb, he’s (Rory– Arthur Darvill) listed in “Big Bang” as the season or should i say,? SERIES FINALE, as everyone knows doctor who isn’t seasons, it’s series’.
and The Crack in the skin of the universe, is the Pandorica, when it cracks everything will be released, including Rory, he’s not dead, just suspended in time.
It is a bit more of a thinking person’s explanation versus mine which was the standard “Science Fiction exception” excuse–”It’s science fiction –anything can happen.”

Doctor Who Series 5 - "Daleks"

Here we are  now  at episode three of series 5 with the new Doctor, Matt Smith. My family with whom I watch the show seems on the fence still about the new Doctor. The change in the Tardis is no problem nor is Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), the Doctor’s new companion.

The stories seem to be playing out as Doctor who (the show) seems to. I’m OK with it all so far–looking forward to watching the whole season. It is a UK show so only maybe 8 or 12 episodes? Must check again.

BBC— April 11, 2010 —

When Winston Churchill summons the Doctor to a Blitz-battered London he finds himself confronted by the Daleks! But could Britain’s wartime Prime Minster really be in league with the Time Lord’s most enduring enemies?

Episode 5.03 – Victory of the Daleks – Press Release & Spoilers

The Doctor has been summoned by an old friend, but in the Cabinet War Rooms far below the streets of blitz-torn London, it’s his oldest enemy he finds waiting for him, as the time-travelling adventures continue. The Daleks are back – but can Winston Churchill be in league with them?

Victory of the Daleks – due to be broadcast in the UK on April 17 – is written by Mark Gatiss who is no stranger to the world of Who having previously penned The Unquiet Dead and The Idiot’s Lantern whilst starring in The Lazarus Experiment (not to mention numerous other involvements).

Featuring the return of the intergalactic pepperpots this tale also sees the time period of World War II return with the familiar sight of Winston Churchill (played by Ian McNeice). But what is his alliance with Skaro’s finest all about?

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (number 420 – available from April 1) tells us that the Daleks are referred to as “Ironsides” and have been developed by the British army as a new weapon. But is there really a “victory” in store for The Doctor’s oldest foe? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see but both Steven Moffat and Gatiss suggest that the title is literal.

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith and Amy Pond by Karen Gillan.
