[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryOfTheDaleks Cabinet War Rooms, 1941]]. The Allies have found a painting in Arles, and it's confirmed as a genuine Van Gogh. After seeing the painting, UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill gets on the phone to the Doctor. River Song, in a 51st century prison, gets the call instead (relayed by the TARDIS) and breaks out after talking to Churchill. She makes her way to the Royal Gallery, and gets caught nicking the painting by [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E2TheBeastBelow Liz Ten]], who lets her go after ''she'' sees the painting. River then is able to procure a vortex manipulator fresh off the wrist of a Time Agent (so fresh they're still attached!) after a bit of haggling, and travels in time.

We join the Doctor, who's taking Amy to the oldest planet in the universe. There's a message on the cliff side that no-one's ever translated, but that changes today. "Why today?", Amy asks. Because of the TARDIS' TranslatorMicrobes, answers the Doctor. They open the doors, and see in fifty-foot letters, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E6TheArmageddonFactor Θ Σ]][[labelnote:*]][[GratuitousGreek For those who don't know the Greek alphabet]]: [[DontExplainTheJoke Theta Sigma]][[/labelnote]], [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E4TheTimeOfAngels Hello Sweetie!]]". River's also left the Doctor some co-ordinates, which take the TARDIS to Roman Britain (102AD), where River's playing Cleopatra. As soon as the Doctor gets there, we finally get a peek at the painting; it's the TARDIS, and it's exploding!

Cut to the trio on horseback, riding to Stonehenge. River and Amy have a Timey-Wimey conversation about their goodbye [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone last time]]; "I'll see you again when the Pandorica opens", River had said. Maybe she did say that, but she hasn't yet. Maybe she will have. They move aside a stone and go under Stonehenge. Inside, they find a huge box carved with complicated patterns and symbols: the Pandorica. More than just a fairytale, then, and something's trapped inside. "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", the Doctor says. Indestructible, can't be caught or reasoned with; it would just drop out of the sky and tear down their world. How did it get caught? Like all fairy-tales, a good wizard came and [[{{Foreshadowing}} tricked it]]. Amy takes a moment to mention that it's a bit like PandorasBox, her favourite book when she was a kid; all the bad things trapped inside it that came into the world when the box opened. This arouses the Doctor's suspicion: Amy's favourite subject at school, the Romans, and now her favourite childhood book. "Never overlook a coincidence. Unless you're busy, then always overlook a coincidence."

River tells him to run, just this once, just run; he can't win, he can't even fight.

Back to Stonehenge where Amy's waking up, she bumps into Rory and recognises him as the guy who... did the... swordy thing. The Doctor sends her up to get some fresh air. Rory is rather traumatised and angsts for a bit before the Doctor shuts him up and tosses him the ring. There's no explanation to this; Rory was eaten up by a crack in time and space and now he's here with a head full of Roman memories. It's unexplainable, and to be honest, rather distracting, but the universe is big and sometimes impossible things just happen and people call them miracles. The Doctor's never seen one, but this is close enough. Rory goes after Amy.

Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans; they've all formed [[LegionOfDoom an alliance against the Doctor]]. They have deduced that the cracks in time are threatening reality and erasing all other universes, and that they have spawned from the explosion of the TARDIS. They're here to save reality from the Doctor under the (false) logic that only he can pilot the TARDIS, shutting him in the Pandorica (while he shouts desperately) in hopes that the TARDIS won't explode without him around. Elsewhere in time and space, River opens the TARDIS doors to... a slab of concrete, as behind her the ship starts to explode. "[[TearJerker I'm sorry, my love.]]" The alliance has failed. We zoom out from Rory holding Amy's body, a shot of the Earth against stars and galaxies exploding until all fades out in a black void of nothingness --

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: "I hate good wizards in fairy tales. They always turn out to be him." It's a ShoutOut to the Seventh Doctor story [[DoctorWhoS26E1Battlefield "Battlefield"]], where the Doctor was revealed to be Merlin. It may be worth noting at this point that the Doctor's fate at the end of the episode is quite similar to Merlin's (sealed in an impenetrable cave / castle of air / whatever for the whole of eternity) and may lead to thematically similar results (without Merlin, Arthur's Britain falls; without the Doctor, the ''universe will cease to exist'').
