[[WMG: Anything that is inside a crack becomes a dream]]
In Amy's Choice, the TARDIS is blown up in a dream. Later (Cold Blood), a hunk of blown up TARDIS turns up in a crack.
Furthermore,if later on the Doctor is eaten by a crack, that will explain why young Amy dreamt about him.
And why monsters have nightmares about the Doctor.
And maybe even why the ood had bad dreams
** Could be some sort of.. I dunno, psychic feedback? That sounds like DW technoexplanation. But also, this could make the Dream Lord a much deadlier villain. Because now he exists.

[[WMG: The cracks have started to affect the Time War.]]
The Fall of Arcadia was one of the major events of the Time War, yet in "Vincent and The Doctor" it's mentioned that The Doctor took Amy to Arcadia. Therefore, the cracks have erased the Fall of Arcadia from history, and since The Doctor had fought on the frontlines there, his memories of it were erased as well.
* Interesting! Maybe if his memories return, he'll get more angsty and less manic, like his predecessors who had never come to terms with the fall. Also, maybe the cracks reach further back, and that's why, per "The Lodger," he can't remember why he's called The Doctor.
* Or maybe he took Amy to Arcadia, Greece...or Arcadia before the Time War?
** Or a different Arcadia? There's 15 New Earths, why not two Arcadias?
* Or Arcadia, the burnt husk of a planet where once a mighty civilization lied?



----

[[WMG: The Universe being destroyed was due to Anti-Time]]
* There was still some in the TARDIS, the paradoxes and explosion spread it through history.

[[WMG: The Rory rumoured to appear in the finale is...]]
the original IdenticalGrandfather. Let's see:
a) RTD had already {{Technobabble}}d an explanation in "Journey's End". Wouldn't it be cool for Moffy to [[ArcWelding Arc Weld]] a throwaway line into the season's twist?
b) It's CrazyEnoughToWork

So, the finale is approaching. Any idea?

* And it's '''Jossed!'''. It's the real Rory, too. In a manner of speaking.

[[WMG: The Other Doctor/10.5/Valeyard? is behind everything in series 5]]
Because its so crazy it might be true. He's probably the one manipulating the Daleks too. Thats why they win.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord is the Celestial Toymaker]]
As the preview for ''Amy's Choice'' would suggest, this "Dream Lord" is perfectly capable of creating alternate realities to trap the Doctor, Amy, and Rory in for what looks like no reason other than teh lolz. Also (of course this is from the ExpandedUniverse so its canonicity is up to you) the Celestial Toymaker has been called the Crystal Guardian who governs dreams and games. And it's about time [[RuleofCool he showed back up too]].
* Jossed. He's the dark side of the Doctor's mind.

* ''Confirmed'', except because of his actions during the "rewind," he gets better.

[[WMG: The Doctor in tweed isn't the Doctor at all.]]
And who can take others forms and knew Amy when she was 7? Either Zero has escaped again, or is using the link to project to Amy from it's cell. Given that they took 12 years to catch it, I don't see them being in any rush to carry out the execution. And even if they did, we don't really know how their connection works. Either way, Zero has something larger planned for the Cracks, and is attempting to activate some sort of command or ruse it planted in Amy's mind when she was still a child.

[[WMG: The real Amy Pond is dead.]]
She was killed after the Doctor left her house for the first time. She's really an artificial being created by the Alliance to work as an information gatherer in order to get the Doctor into the Pandorica.
* In that case, why didn't the Alliance just shut down/turn to "obedient mode" the Artificial!Amy?
** Perhaps because they needed her to be as close to the "real" Amy as possible so that the Doctor wouldn't be suspicious?
*** But when they eliminated her through Rory, the Doctor is already restrained and knows of the Alliance's plans. Perhaps they killed her because she would resist her programming even harder than Auton!Rory.
* On the other hand, Amy's room is full of her art about the Doctor, also her two favorite childhood books. It looks more like the room of an 8-year-old girl than a 21-yo one. (Except for the wedding dress, which could have easily been placed there by the Alliance.) My theory is this: young Amy was kidnapped/killed, then a few days before the arrival of the Doctor kissogram Amy and Rory were placed in Ledgeworth, and a perception filter was applied to other inhabitants of the village. The fact that we know plenty of Amy's childhood and her present self, but nothing in-between seems to support his. Prisoner Zero was also part of the plan, he made sure that the Doctor gets interested in Amy and is informed about the Pandorica arc. When Rory is absorbed by the crack, he gets erased from history because he never existed in the first place. In essence, it's nothing more than a perception filter shutting down. (Still working on why the clerics get erased)

[[WMG: Alternately, the real Amy Pond is ''gone''.]]
The Doctor came back for her after being released from the Pandorica by his future self.

[[WMG:The Eleventh Doctor will spend some time stranded on Earth along the lines of what happened with Three]]

The violent regeneration pretty thoroughly trashed the TARDIS and it's in for a crash landing at "The End of Time Part 2". Just the damage we saw could well be enough to justify building a new set for the interior of the TARDIS and stranding the Doctor on Earth for some time while he fixes the TARDIS.
* {{Jossed}}. While the TARDIS did get repaired (with a new control room), she did so herself and was fixed within a day. He gets stranded later on in "The Lodger", but that's not in the same league as Three's three-year exile.

The Eleventh Doctor will probably also be in pretty bad shape for his first appearance.

[[WMG:The Dalek Civil War will make an appearance in series 5]]
In the trailer for series 5, we see two Daleks. The first is clearly dark grey (much like the Renegade Daleks); though we only see the head of the second, it's clearly white (much like the Imperial Daleks)
* {{Jossed}}. There's some Daleks from the Medusa Cascade; they're loyal to both the Dalek Supreme (or "Supreme One") AND Davros, so they fit neither Renegade or Imperial. The taller ones with colour schemes were a new post-Time War breed created through a Progenitor device. In other words, prior to series 5, these five Daleks did not exist.

[[WMG: Alternatively, there will be a new Dalek Civil War]]
Between the [[FanNickname Dalek Rangers]] and Void Daleks. Admit it, it would be awesome.
* '''Confirmed.''' Ish. The Doctor Who Experience (a "walk-through episode" in the UK) has a battle between the old Daleks and Paradigm Daleks as a setpiece.
* In terms of series 5 itself, '''{{Jossed}}'''. The old Daleks willingly let themselves be killed by the Progenitors, due to their inferior DNA.



[[WMG: The ArcWords of Series 5 will be "MΨTH"]]
* It's on, at the very least, Jeff's laptop and a bunch of the coma equipment. Some sort of [[{{Series/Firefly}} Blue Sun]] / [[Series/TheMiddleman FatBoy Industries]] type company, perhaps?
* '''Jossed.''' Looks like it was a red herring.
** Not necessarily. Matt Smith has said there are not one but FIVE arc words. So assuming that the Silence the cracks and the Pandorica were three of them that leaves two extra. And the arc ISN'T over as the identity of who created the Cracks will be revealed in series 6.
** Wasn't another of the ArcWords suppose to be "time can be rewritten?" Shouldn't that count as well?

[[WMG: The ArcWords of Series 5 will be "fairy story/stories"]]
Every episode so far up to Ep. 5
* '''Jossed''', but they did have a very important part to play in the finale.




* I'd like to add that, like those above, I just KNOW this is important, although I can't yet say exactly how! I'm not even sure if the duck pond and its lack of ducks is itself important, or if it merely served as a kind of 'pointer' to make it easy to remember the point in time. The moment I am getting at is in The Eleventh Hour, when the Doctor and Amy were.... erm....discussing the duck pond (as the end of the world rushed toward them), and then the Doctor started clutching at himself and saying 'No! It's too soon! I'm not done yet!!' . My weird head later combined this with his words from The Impossible Astronaut : 'Ah, humans, I thought I'd never get done saving you....'. This looks suspiciously like a link to me. [I know it just looks like the final remnants of his regeneration, which is how I interpreted it the first time I saw it, but it's actually a bit weird as it had been a while since he had last done any of that convulsing and clutching stuff, particularly since the knock with the cricket bat, which he claimed had set him straight. ]

[[WMG: A Multi-Form's tail goes on forever.]]
I've seen it asked at least once what, if anything, Prisoner Zero is hanging from. Given it's [[StarfishAliens Starfishness]], if not outright EldritchAbomination, the tail goes on forever. It's not really hanging from anything, it just hangs. If you were to follow it's tail, it would go on into space, unless you blinked or looked away, even for a fraction of a second, in which case it would disappear, since the tail only seems that long when observed. This could probably go on the spoiler-free page, but it hates me for some reason.

[[WMG: Something is very wrong in Leadworth, and it has to do with Time being held unnaturally in stasis.]]
* Leadworth is characterised as "the village that Time forgot".
* In the dreamverse, the old in Leadworth were preying on the young to stretch out their unnatural existences.
* Rory's badge is 20 years out of date.
* Leadworth cannot engender life: the duck pond has no ducks.
* It all adds up to Leadworth being held unnaturally in stasis--out of Time, if you will.
* Leadworth seems to be culturally frozen in the year 1996, despite having the technology of 2010. This may be because Leadworth is the closest thing Eleven has to an ideal permanent residence (The neighborhoods of Craig and Vincent are likely second-best). Eleven has a love/hate relationship with all of the places in which he lives, especially the TARDIS herself. His hate for the TARDIS' destinations manifests itself as Time Cracks that suck the life, passion, happiness, and existence out of every place he goes. The technology of these places remains modern, because Eleven has no problem with the strength of his neocortex (other than the fact that his amygdala keeps interfering with its functioning).



* Apparently the title of Episode 8 is actually "[[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Hungry_Earth The Hungry Earth]]".


[[WMG: Jack Will Become The Beast Beneath]]
At some point between going from how he looked at the end of ''Children of Earth'' to the Face of Boe, he will become the Space Whale that rescues the children of the UK. the evidence for this is simple:
* We know Jack will go through a massive physical transformation as a result of just being sooooo old.
* Jack has hinted that he has had past...err...''contact'' with space whales.
* After the events detailed in ''Children of Earth'', Jack will likely feel an obligation and duty that will make him friends to all children, and feel especially obligated to the children of the UK.
* The Space Whale's plan consisted of going to earth, being captured, being used a means of transport, and then being painfully tortured over the course of several centuries until someone awesome rescues him, which follows the standard arc of most Jackplans.
* Or even more depressing, Jack due to his actions in the sixties led to multiple deaths latter on including his own grandson. Will be driven to protect the Children of Britain. He knows already what is going to happen to him but takes it as a form of penance, hundreds of years of agony for the deaths of Ianto and his grandson. And for how many other people killed by his actions or inaction no matter how necessary .

[[WMG: Amy Pond lives in a psychiatric hospital, dreaming that the Doctor returned for her]]
The Doctor wasn't 12 years late, more like 120. Amy is deluding herself, imagining all the adventures we see. The cracks tend to show up to remind her of the most traumatic experience of her childhood.
* All previous "new Who" companions had a downer ending. After Donna, it will be rather hard to raise the stakes, but this might just cut it.
** How is Martha choosing to leave of her own accord because she's sick of pining over the Doctor a downer ending? She left ''of her own free will'' and had (still has as far as I'm aware) the ability to contact the Doctor if she needs him.
* The duck pond doesn't have any ducks, because it's just a figment of her imagination.
* If this theory is not true, some villains might still mess with Amy's brain, leaving her to believe it is, à la Captain Sisko in ''Star Trek: Deep Space Nine''.
* Alternatively, she might be [[WMG/{{Garfield}} a lonely girl starving to death in an empty house]].

[[WMG: Jackson Lake will return in Series 5]]
Jackson Lake. Amy Pond. River Song. Might be just a coincidence, but there is seemingly a pattern emerging with companions named after bodies of water. Might have something to do with the Doctor drawing Amy's attention to the Duck Pond with No Ducks In It.
* Added: I was pointed out to Adelaide Brooke too.

[[WMG: After the Events of Victory of the Daleks.....]]
...The [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Dalek Rangers]] threw the most awesome victory party the universe has ever seen, in celebration of finally pulling one over on the Doctor. I only bring this up because the idea of the Daleks [[HairTriggerTemper OF ALL RACES]] doing your typical wild party antics with those screeching voices of theirs amuses me.
* "THE BOTTLE HAS SPUN! DALEK ETERNAL MUST SNOG DALEK STRATEGIST!"
** Someone has to draw that now, complete with Dalek Scientist scuttling around at top speed with a lampshade on its head.
*** "MY VISION IS IMPAIRED!"
* Truth or Dare with Daleks. I swear, that would be the best party ''ever''.
-->Scientist: DALEK ETERNAL, TRUTH OR DARE?
-->Eternal: ...TRUTH.
-->Drone: WHO IS YOUR CRUSH?
-->Eternal: ...CAN I DO A FORFEIT?

[[WMG: One of this series' themes is provoking the Doctor to anger]]
So far, in every episode there has been an attempt, either intentional or not, to provoke the Doctor and make him angry- perhaps he will truly crack in the finale? (pure coincidence that the more blatant theme is 'cracks')
* In "The Eleventh Hour", Prisoner Zero taunts the Doctor- 'the Doctor in the TARDIS doesn't know'
* In "The Beast Below", the Doctor is unintentionally (noone knew who the Doctor was, therefore had no need to provoke him) angered to the point of willingly killing an innocent creature (tbh, this episode could do with some expansion on the theory)
* In "Victory of the Daleks", the Doctor is successfully and definitely intentionally provoked by the Daleks until he angrily states 'I am the Doctor, and you are the Daleks!', triggering the progenitor device.
* In "The Time of Angels", it is explicitly stated that the Angels are attempting to provoke the Doctor to make him angry, though it doesn't work.




[[WMG: The events of "Blink" were an EvilPlan on the part of the Angels.]]

Now that we know that anything that holds the image of an Angel becomes and Angel, it would seem the Angels in ''Blink'' succeeded in getting into the TARDIS after all. How? ''Those pictures Sally Sparrow took of them, then gave to the Doctor.'' Now they're sitting in the depths of the TARDIS somewhere, forgotten and waiting for the perfect time to attack. Assuming that during ''Blink'' they still had the problem of the Angels dying in the Maze of the Dead, they had this plan: because they don't know how to fly the TARDIS, the Angels from the pictures and the Angel from the Byzantium plotted to bring the Doctor to them. Then while he's running around trying to climb up to the ship, they take control and use the TARDIS energy to feed their army. Then they have two sources of energy instead of one, doubling their chances of success.
* No, that's not it. The Angels in Blink are also part of the time loop. Sally Sparrow gives the Doctor the pictures. He takes them. The angels get out. He and Martha get zapped back in time, defeat the angels, get the pictures... I'm not entirely sure that works, but I think there's a way to do it so that the Doctor and Martha are not part of the time loop.

[[WMG: Prisoner Zero gave Amy brain damage]]
There is no way having an evil alien developing a mental link with you when you were a child and keeping it until you were an adult would not negatively affect the way your brain developed.

[[WMG: Amy gave The Doctor brain damage]]
There is no way a Scottish redhead hitting you on the head with a cricket bat when you are still in the first 24 hours of your regeneration would not negatively affect the way your brain developed.
* However, since he ''was'' in his first twenty-four-hours of regeneration, [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion any damage done to him would have healed]].

[[WMG: The Clerics are a future version of The Church of the Assembly of Man from FanFic/TheReturn.]]
I have no justification of this other than [[RuleOfCool it'd be cool]].




[[WMG: Amy pond is an Autassassinophile]]

Also know as danger fetishist. So far, in the two situations where she has been terrified and very nearly killed (Vampires of Venice and Flesh & Stone) she has responded by enthusiastically getting off with the nearest bloke. I can't be the only one thinking this.









[[WMG:Amelia Pond is a Time Lord superweapon.]]
Wayback in their first proper appearance,the Time Lords were summoned by the Second Doctor
to fix something.Thier response was to
* 1.Execute a renegade Time Lord
* 2.Force the Doctor to regenerate.
* 3.''Delete an entire military regime and all its soldiers from history.''
* So the reason Amy Pond recalls no Daleks is because she erased them from history,just as the Time Lords intended. PS.She's the Nightmare Child (since she's the only companion we see as a child or having a nightmare).


[[WMG:Since the events of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]] have been seemingly erased, some of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]] must have been as well.]]
Since Amy cannot remember the Daleks stealing the Earth despite it having been a completely worldwide event that was unescapable, then everyone else (except the Doctor) probably also doesn't remember. Besides the great continuity issues this raises (Donna, the 10th Doctor's clone, Davros, etc.), since Wilfred clearly remembered what happened before during "The End of Time" this means that whatever happened to cause the erasures must have started after that. This means that part or nearly all of that episode may have also been wiped from existence, which probably doesn't mean good things to come for the Doctor, especially if the [[FanNickname Dalek Rangers]] are involved.




[[WMG: Amy is Turlough's daughter.]]
Both are ginger. Both have rather snarky personalities. And honestly, Amy is how I imagined a [[GenderFlip genderflipped]] Turlough to be. It's canon that Amy's an orphan, it could be that she was the result of a one night stand Turlough had with a an Earthling. Now, how to prove Turlough would be on the planet around the time Amy was conceived...

[[WMG:Rory is The Master.]]
In all (or almost all) his oldWho appearances,The Master gets into swordfights, losing only to the Doctor.
Rory got into a swordfight.Also:Rory seems distinctly unfreaked out by the TARDIS "It's another dimension."
ExactWords,because he already knows how it works and ''exactly'' what the Doctor would say.
* {{Jossed}}. Rory got erased from time and The Doctor kept all his memories of him. Had he been the Master he would have lost them and who knows what would happen to his mind if that happened.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord was not in control]]
The Doctors mind was in control of most of the situation most of the time. There are hints it's his dream, such as him being able to complete the sentences of the Ecnodeen. The Doctor is play acting...he's aware of what is going on and manipulating events so that Amy is forced to make this choice. He creates a safe situation where Amy can feel how much Rory means to her. Only one situation comes out as not making sense if the Doctor were in complete control, which would be when the Ecnodeen corner him when he's alone at the butcher shop. Perhaps the Dream Lord and Ecnodeen had some free will and actually cornered him, and he needed to stay in the dream for it to keep existing. Even the last shot at the end makes sense, he sees his dark side in the deeds he has committed to push Amy to make her choice.


[[WMG: The Dream Lord was also feeding off Amy]]
* Because if he was only after the Doctor, he wouldn't have spent so much time and energy messing with Amy's head. Rory was really the only one who had so little dark in him that the best the Dream Lord could get out of him was Englands dullest village.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord was really concentrating on Amy, not the Doctor]]
* As the Dream Lord kept saying, it was all Amy's choice, he just taunted the Doctor to distract him from that fact.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord is the TARDIS]]
Formiddable psychic power, age measured in centuries, access to Doctor's darkest secrets... yup, definitely rings a Cloister Bell.
* So...the dreams were all because the TARDIS's consciousness! The dust that had knocked the three into unconsciousness DID get into the TARDIS's engine, and since it has been said the TARDIS is a sentient being, it manifested itself as the Dream Lord.
* This theory would explain why the TARDIS seems to do the Dream Lord's bidding. In the scene in "Vincent and the Doctor" where the Doctor introduces Vincent to the TARDIS, the Doctor does not quite look in control of the situation, which may indicate that the TARDIS decided to invite Vincent inside. The TARDIS misbehaves more severely in "The Lodger". Rather than directing Eleven's subconscious to a certain location as it seems to do in "Vincent and the Doctor", it takes him to a place he never consciously intended to go, and throws Eleven out until he takes action in stabilizing the TARDIS (by stabilizing the crashed Time Engine). If the TARDIS is as lust-powered as it behaves, then Eleven could have stabilized it by actually going along with what it wanted in several episodes (if not the entire series). These episodes include: "The Eleventh Hour", "Flesh and Stone", "Vincent and the Doctor", "The Lodger", and "The Pandorica Opens". Eleven finally stabilizes the TARDIS (at least temporarily) in "The Big Bang".

[[WMG: The first ten Doctors never existed, Eleven really is Amy's imaginary friend, and the Crack in Reality can work in reverse.]]
''(from [[http://community.livejournal.com/fanficrants/9552494.html?thread=299601774#t299601774 a comment on FFR]])''
Eleven, along with all his memories, were created by Amy when she wished for someone to fix the crack in her wall. Because she was constantly exposed to the fracture in reality in childhood, the crack in reality absorbed images from her imagination and created the Doctor. No one can remember the events from previous series because they never actually happened.
* This kind of thing could tie in with River Song saying "After all, we're all fairy tales." at the end of Flesh and Stone.
* One can only wonder then what was going through her mind then to create the events of ''[[Recap/DoctorWho1985JFIGSAFixWithSontarans A Fix With Sontarans]]''...
* Semi-Confirmed, argubly.

[[WMG: The Doctor thinks Amy's uncertainty about the wedding will cause the universe to split, at a weak point where it can't afford to.]]
The schism into two parallel universes, one where the wedding occurred and one where it didn't, is happening at the same moment as a lot of other timey-wimey stuff, creating a perfect storm that threatens to end the universe. The Doctor thinks that by making Amy travel with him and Rory until she's absolutely committed to him, he can prevent the "no wedding" universe from coming into existence. [[YouCantThwartStageOne Of course]], he's wrong. He'll get Amy sorted out, then ''Rory'' will cause the rift.
* ...Cold Blood may well have just done this. No Rory, no wedding, no character development for Amy, etc. Cue massive paradox that causes gigantic rifts and cracks in time!

[[WMG: Series 5 was written to parallel Leonard Cohen's ''[[http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/leonardcohen/anthem.html Anthem]]'']]
Stand-alone episodes are based on individual lines/verses, and the arc itself is based on the chorus. The song was chosen because it contains a bunch of Nu Who motifs already.

* The Beast Below: ''We asked for signs, the signs were sent: the birth betrayed, the marriage spent. Yeah the widowhood of every government -- signs for all to see.''
* Victory of the Daleks: ''Ah the wars they will be fought again'' (Both WWII and the Time War).
* The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone: ''While the killers in high places say their prayers out loud''
* The Vampires of Venice: ''But they've summoned, they've summoned up a thundercloud and they're going to hear from me. ''
* Amy's Choice: ''The birds they sang at the break of day. "Start again," I heard them say. Don't dwell on what has passed away or what is yet to be.''
* Arc: ''Ring the bells that still can ring/Forget your perfect offering/There is a crack in everything/That's how the light gets in. ''
* Also the theme - ''"there is no drum"'' (The theme song is missing the old backbeat)

[[WMG: The Rani will return.]]
Old villians left, right and centre have been returning and its never said in the show whether she died, so its possible.

[[WMG: The reason the Angels didn't move before Flesh and Stone is because of the camera man.]]

In Attack of the Graske, the camera man is confirmed to be in-universe, as the Doctor addresses him: (Including you, mate. Where DO you get the energy?). Therefore, we can conclude that the reason the Angels didn't move during Blink when Sally/Cathy/Larry couldn't see them is not because the audience was looking at them, as was originally thought, but because the camera man was looking. Whereas, in Flesh and Stone, the camera man looks away (though of course the audience can't see this, as he's behind the camera), and thusly the Angels move.
* {{Jossed}}. The Doctor was talking to the audience member with the remote/mouse, not any camera man. Who looks directly into a lens to speak to a camera man?

[[WMG: The future Amy and Rory Team TARDIS saw will play an important role in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E9ColdBlood Cold Blood]]]]
Why point them out? Why show Amy and Rory (and subsequently us) them if they aren't important. And yeah, the Doctor may say NeverTheSelvesShallMeet but surely he remembers that that actually ''saves the day'' in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E3MawdrynUndead Mawdryn Undead]]. I think that whole scene was to set up a ChekhovsGun.
* Technically confirmed. Well, it's the absence of the 2020 Rory that's important.

[[WMG: The Pandorica is...]]
Amy herself. She's said that the cracks in time seem to be following her. We'll just have to wait and see.
* Not quite, but she did wind up inside it for a couple of thousand years until Amelia touched it to restore her.
* It seems more likely that Amy is the main reason the Pandorica unlocked itself from the inside. In "The Pandorica Opens", the Pandorica seems to unlock every time the Doctor gets an impulse, so when Amy snogs the Doctor in "Flesh and Stone", the kiss may have resulted in the Pandorica unlocking.
** That second bullet is completely {{Jossed}} like it isn't even funny.

[[WMG: The Doctor is Merlin and River is the Lady of the Lake]]
The Doctor like Merlin seems to age backwards, successive regenerations tend to make him younger, he's pretty much magic, and he often disappears for considerable periods of time.

The Lady of the Lake, learned magic from Merlin, who then lusted after her, and eventually she used her magic to entomb Merlin in a tree or under a Stone. Merlin did not try to counter this. River, has a water themed name, likely learned about sonic screwdrivers and TARDIS piloting from the Doctor, and killed a very good man who was hero to many. As for lusted after, they do seem to have some sort of romantic relationship, what with they're very romantic dates to singing towers and picnics at Asgard.

The Pandorica is rumored to be, confirmed actually if you can trust the Doctor Who Wiki, Stonehenge. It is also mentioned on the wiki to be some type of prison (imprisoned under a stone get it). Rory is rumored to have been rewritten in time as a Roman Centurion. King Arthur is argued by some historians to have been a Celtic King who fought the Romans.

Now Merlin is said to have taken joy in deaths and final goodbyes because he lived backwards in time, so they were like first meetings for normal people. The Doctor first met River from his perspective when she died. Merlin also found first meetings and births tragic for similar reasons, so if River's first meeting of the Doctor from her perspective is the Pandorica, and she kills "the best man she ever knew" and there is sorrow in the first meeting.

Alternatives involve Pond as the Lady of the Lake.
* Wasn't it Nimue/Vivian that Merlin taught magic to, not the Lady of the Lake?
** I get my knowledge of Arthurian myth from TheOtherWiki but it claims that the characters were conflated in some sources.
* King Arthur, if he ever existed, came after the Roman occupation had ended, and fought against the Saxon invaders; that's as old as the story can possibly be stretched, certainly not to the Roman times.
* Depending on how much we can take from the original run, it was already established that the Doctor was Merlin -- or an alternate-dimension version of the Doctor was. That storyline was a bit confusing.

[[WMG: Rory is not coming back, and Amy will be killed in the finale.]]
Any future appearances will be a hallucination / impostor taking his form. The reason there was no information available about Amy's maritial status in ''The Beast Below'' was because to the future timeline he never existed, and Amy may have never married.

He's gone, pretty much set up to be the Adric of the new generation, and is never coming back.

Amy may well not survive the finale either, which would make two dead companions in the span of one season for the Eleventh Doctor. Moffat may well be trying to break The Doctor more than RTD ever did... 06/26/2010 could be the date of Amy's ''death'', not her wedding.

* {{Jossed}}. Rory, is back, as a human and everything. Amy's killed in the climax of the first part, but she was OnlyMostlyDead.

[[WMG: The Dreamlord is not part of the Doctor.]]
When in the butcher shop, the Dreamlord derisevly says that the Doctor is 'probably a vegetarian,' when he is obviously not (as recently as the Eleventh Hour he eats bacon and fish sticks with little moral hesitation). Something that was literally a manifestation of his darker side would not make such a glaring mistake, hence the Dreamlord is something external to the Doctor which nevertheless knows a great deal about him.
* Except the Doctor's tastes and preferences change from regeneration to regeneration, and he was trying to figure out what food he liked then. He threw out the bacon, don't forget, and for some reason fish is considered something vegetarians actually can eat (not vegans, however, but that's digressing). We haven't seen Eleven eat anything else yet, so he could be vegetarian, theoretically, if he dislikes other meats. Plus, given the inevitable rise to "Dream Lord is the Valeyard" theories it could also be a shout-out to Six, the Doctor who met the Valeyard, being vegetarian.
** While we don't see him eat it, the omelette that the Doctor cooks in The Lodger has ham in it. That makes a shout-out a more likely explanation.
** During The Two Doctors, the Sixth Doctor vows to become a vegetarian after meeting an [[IAmAHumanitarian Androgum]] (and seeing Two turned into one as well). This does not stick forever (Nine had steak in Boom Town) and wouldn't fit with the Dreamlord's comment anyway; the Doctor swore off meat because he was thoroughly disgusted by what he'd seen his previous self become. The Dreamlord's comment implied moral condescension, not personal distaste, while the Doctor vowed to become a vegetarian in much the same way that a drunkard may swear, "I'll never drink again."
* It's possible that the Doctor is either wrong or [[BlatantLies completely lying]] at the end of the episode, explaining the dreams as being caused by "sleep dust" or whatever. [[BlatantLies He seemed a bit ''too'' quick in explaining that]]...plus the last shot of the Dream Lord in his reflection...





[[WMG: Anything that is inside a crack becomes a dream]]
In Amy's Choice, the TARDIS is blown up in a dream. Later (Cold Blood), a hunk of blown up TARDIS turns up in a crack.
Furthermore,if later on the Doctor is eaten by a crack, that will explain why young Amy dreamt about him.
And why monsters have nightmares about the Doctor.
And maybe even why the ood had bad dreams
** Could be some sort of.. I dunno, psychic feedback? That sounds like DW technoexplanation. But also, this could make the Dream Lord a much deadlier villain. Because now he exists.



[[WMG: Amy Pond is in a parallel universe]]

Somehow, during the regeneration, the Doctor managed to break through to another universe. Due to the fact he had just finished regenerating, and into a madman no less, he didn't realise this. Breaking through to the other universe caused the cracks, and it explains why Amy can't remember the Daleks.

The two problems with this are River and Churchill. River could have moved between universes, if a future doctor told her she had to, and how to do it. And as for Churchill, this universe may have split after UsefulNotes/WW2, so when the Doctor travelled back in time it was to a time when the two universes were together.

* River and Churchill could be explained, actually. Maybe Amy's Universe had it's own Doctor who had similar - but not identical - adventures.
** In that case that universe is in more trouble than I thought; having two doctors has got to have repurcussions somewhere; maybe that's contributing to the cracks.

[[WMG: The cracks have started to affect the Time War.]]
The Fall of Arcadia was one of the major events of the Time War, yet in "Vincent and The Doctor" it's mentioned that The Doctor took Amy to Arcadia. Therefore, the cracks have erased the Fall of Arcadia from history, and since The Doctor had fought on the frontlines there, his memories of it were erased as well.
* Interesting! Maybe if his memories return, he'll get more angsty and less manic, like his predecessors who had never come to terms with the fall. Also, maybe the cracks reach further back, and that's why, per "The Lodger," he can't remember why he's called The Doctor.
* Or maybe he took Amy to Arcadia, Greece...or Arcadia before the Time War?
** Or a different Arcadia? There's 15 New Earths, why not two Arcadias?
* Or Arcadia, the burnt husk of a planet where once a mighty civilization lied?

[[WMG: The 'Time Capsule Tardis' in The Lodger was built by the Ood.]]
No real reasons for this, barring true conjecture. The controls seem very Ood, placing your hand against the controls. A Timelord was too powerful for it, but humans too weak. And the Ood's technology was advancing at about 10x speed. [=TARDISes=] were in the path of technology they'd develop, given they could already psychically see across time.

[[WMG: The Doctor makes things up to explain what he doesn't have a clue about]]
Back in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone Flesh and Stone]] the Doctor (metaphorically) threw three-year worth of continuity into the Crack when he said that the Angels can choose not to move when they think they're observed. [[MagicAIsMagicA Which goes against everything we know about them.]]

But look at what evidence he'd got. As far as the Doctor knows the Angels have a habit of turning into stones when the only witness around is not looking. Not exactly familiar with the FourthWall and the thousands of tropers behind it, he jumps to the best conclusion at hand. Sensible enough?

[[{{Foreshadowing}} Just wait for the next time the stakes rest on his educated guess.]][[note]]and given the way he laments at how others always know much more about [[ArcWords the Cracks]] than him in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E9ColdBlood Cold Blood]]...[[/note]]
* Support: In "Amy's Choice," Amy questions The Doctor on whether cold burning suns could actually exists. He's particularly flustered at the time and snaps at her: " I don't know! Why do people always think I know these things!?"
* Who says that Ten was right? As far as we can tell, everything he knows about the Angels in Blink he learned from a StableTimeLoop. There's no good reason that any non-essential knowledge [[OntologicalParadox Ontological Paradoxed]] into existence need be correct.

[[WMG: The prisoner within the Pandorica is...]]
* '''...Davros.'''
** Soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies? Anyone remember that alternate universe he destroyed in Turn Left?
*** Technically, it was Donna who destroyed that universe by killing herself. Plus, the Reality Bomb was stopped before detonation, therefore, the only destroyed universe was destroyed because of Donna.
*** The universe was already fading before Donna killed herself, so Davros would still have gotten quite a lot of galaxies
* '''...Zagreus.'''
** RuleOfCool. What can I say, I really want to see Moffat tackle that plotline.
* '''...The nightmare child or one of the other players in the time war'''
** The time war did some major damage, possibly destroying a billion galaxies(or one galaxy at a billion points in time). Since the Daleks are already present there, it's not them. It is possibly trying to erase the time war from time so it can escape.
* '''...The Doctor.'''
** Or that alternate timeline version of him that everyone is convinced is out there, or future version of him that's another nod to the Valeyard, and just a future version of him that's not evil, but it was the only way his enemies could finally whoop him.
** The quote from the Next Time trailer is an incredibly apt description of the Doctor:
--->''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.''
** Every ''Series/DoctorWho'' villain in the known universe would '''absolutely''' show up if they know that someone already had the Doctor locked up in a cage.
** It explains how River could kill the greatest man she'd ever known -- a hero to millions -- and still be ''relatively'' flippant about it: she killed "the Doctor", but not THE Doctor, and got locked up by people who didn't realise the difference.
** This one's confirmed...[[FromACertainPointOfView in a certain sense.]]
* '''...The Black Guardian.'''
** Stolen from elsewhere on this page.
* '''...Cthulhu.'''
** Hey, someone had to say it!
*** The Doctor was imprisoned in the Pandorica... Perhaps the Doctor is Cthulu and Cthulu is the most benevolent Old One?
* '''...Chuck Norris.'''
** Now """THAT'S""" someone to be scared of!
*** Chuck Norris wouldn't let a silly little thing like the Pandorica detain him.
*** Hence why he's breaking out. From his perspective, it only held him for like half a second.
* '''...Rory.'''
** He somehow survived, and is ''pissed'' at the Doctor for leaving him behind.
* '''The Void itself'''
** Remember the thing the daleks and Cyberman were sucked into? It'll be back. And EATING THE UNIVERSE. It'll be a convient way to bring back the OTHER Doctor and the daleks and cybermen in them as well
* '''Everyone and everything the Cracks have consumed'''
** Omniversal ResetButton perhaps?

'''They were ALL {{Jossed}} by the episode.''' What was in the Pandorica? Nothing. It's an empty cage. But once it's open, the [[VillainTeamUp epic alliance of villains]] ''trap the Doctor inside'' and then close it up again. (so those who guessed that it'd be the Doctor were ''almost'' right)

[[WMG: The Dreamlord is driving the Tardis]]
Why? No clue. But perhaps with The Doctor stuck in the Pandorica, he'd be able to escape. Or, it's Jenny. or Jenny will come back and save him?

[[WMG: How they escape]]
After the end of ''The Pandorica Opens.''
* River: Vortex manipulator.
** Confirmed, but the Doctor himself rescues her with it.
* The Doctor: Auton!Rory lets him out (the Doctor says it's easy to open from the outside).
** The rumors that there is a second Doctor are true. He will let himself out.
*** It's both, actually. A future Doctor hands his sonic to Rory.
* Amy: DisneyDeath?
** No. She's really dead, but [[OnlyMostlyDead Only Mostly]]. The Pandorica's puts her in stasis before she receives a living DNA sample from her younger starless-timeline self.

[[WMG: The Pandorica Opens during Amy's time]]
The idea that it's during Roman times is just part of the KansasCityShuffle. That's why Stonehenge looks old, when it didn't get that way until later. What evidence do we have that it's the past?
** The Stonehenge was old even in the Roman times; it's the oldest known structure in the area, as old as the pyramids of Egypt (which too are a millennia older than the Roman Empire).
*** For the purpose of this WMG, we're subscribing to the popular theory that Stonehenge was still a complete circle in Roman times, that was later sacked and then partially restored.
*** From where?
* The space-time coordinates Vincent painted: the BigBad is controlling when time-travelers end up, so River and the TARDIS could've been manipulated.
* The Romans: fake.
* The absence of modern-day people: The villains killed them all (and shot down any planes).

* Jossed. The Doctor states it's 102 AD by looking at his timey watch, and Rory says on several occasions he waits for centuries to reunite with Amy in 1996. Did the villains (oh, wait, WHAT villains?) manipulate the museum exhibits about the Lone Centurion too? Did they create a fake Blitz to bury Rory in? And I don't see how co-ordinates on a PAINTING can mess up the Doctor's sense of history.

* The Romans ARE fake, however. They're Autons.

[[WMG: The TARDIS fragment was fake]]
Why not? Everything else was.
* Wha?

[[WMG:Little!Amy's "dream" of the Doctor coming back for her wasn't, and this is the cause of the cracks]]
The Doctor, possibly at some point in his own personal future, goes back to little!Amy out of guilt or a desire to "rewrite" time so that he didn't actually disappear for twelve/fourteen years. He took her on marvelous adventures in a timeline parallel to the one we're watching for fourteen-ish years. The two of them ended up on the Byzantium - causing a paradox which caused the cracks in time, as per the rest of the theories on this page - and got separated while fighting/running from the Angels. Tweed!Doctor is this alternate-timeline Doctor who mistook "our" Amy for "his" Amy - the one he's been traveling with. He told her something when she was seven, possibly along the lines "I will always come back" or "I will always be here for you" that alternate!Amy would have immediately understood, but Amy Prime has no hope of getting.
** The two Doctors, two Amys ending is foreshadowed by Amy having a different name when the Doctor sees her again. There is an Amelia Pond, traveling with the other!Eleven and an Amy Pond, who we have been following.

[[WMG:Alternately, whatever Tweed!Doctor told her when she was seven was eaten by a crack]]
And that's why it's so crucial that she remembers it, rather than him telling her. The same way he later tries to get her to remember Rory after his death and absorption into the crack.

[[WMG:Jack showed up for the finale again in Series 5.]]
Well, part of him.
* Please explain?
** I'm assuming the original writer meant that the hand we see from the unnamed handsome Time Agent was actually Jack's.

[[WMG: Amy never had an aunt and was raised by the Dreamlord.]]
There's alredy a theory that Amy's aunt was swallowed by a crack, but I don't believe she ever existed. In the first episode, seven year old Amy was all alone,at night, I don't recall ever seeing a trace that anyone else lived in the house. And when River goes to the house, it doesn't seem as though anyone was in it, plus she is never mentioned when the Daleks, Cybermen, etc talk about how they used Amy's memories to build a scenario. This is even stranger when you consider the other companions' parents:

Jackie Tyler became a recurring character.
Martha's father appeared several times, and her mother played an important part in the Harold Saxon plot arc.
Donna's mother also appeared a lot, and Wilfred got given a starring role in ''The End of Time''.

But we never see evidence of Amy's aunt.

On to the second part of the theory.

So far, every previous episode of the series which didn't either mention or show cracks (not including the first parts of two parters) has contributed a character to the final. A lot of them don't even do anything important; really, what purpose does Queen Elizabeth from ''The Beast Below'' serve? She's just there. And the crack at the end of ''The Lodger'' didn't do anything other than make the viewer worry. Basically, every episode has a connection to ''The Pandorica Opens''.

Except for ''Amy's Choice''. And I'm not sure I buy the story of the Dreamlord being the Doctor. I think he was the one piloting the Tardis with River inside.

And these two link together like this; he tricked Amy's mind into believing that she had an aunt, when she didn't. He never actually appeared to her, he just made sure she was able to stay alive until the Doctor came. Somehow, and for some reason, he was using her to lure the Doctor.

I'm not going to push this as a theory, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that that half of Amy's house doesn't exist; all we ever see is the passage, her bedroom and the kitchen. Everything else is just empty rooms, as the Doctor pointed out.
* There's even [[http://i754.photobucket.com/albums/xx181/DarkOverlordKtar/Doctor%20Who/Picture1.png this stairway going to... the ceiling]]. [[SarcasmMode Not weird and suspicious ''at all''.]]
** What the Heck!? How come I never noticed that before? It's like there's a 'real' perception filter around that door...
** Obviously, we were all distracted by a hot redhead in a police outfit...
** Trap door to the attic. Though I got to agree, we should have noticed that. Now we need to get a boombox and a recoding of a Dalek yelling "Explain" (because I really, really like it), take that picture, print it up, corner Stephen and play the recording while showing him the picture to confirm it.
* Wasn't Amy's aunt seen in the beginning of "The Big Bang", when Amy is 7? She's the one who talks about "star cults".

[[WMG: Amy is dreaming in reality.]]
Another dreamlord theory.

Amy is asleep, and has been asleep for the entire series. She may still be a little girl who only dreamed she grew up.

However, she is not having a regular dream, rather the dreamlord is controlling it. The village where she lives, the Doctor, Rory, and everything and everyone else, are real. The dreamlord possibly has more power than he seemed to, and can influence people in the village's thinking. Amy's house isn't really there, or it's just old and abandoned, hence the empty rooms. The Amy everyone sees is simply the dream version of her. That's why her life "makes no sense": everything personal about it is a dream.

[[WMG: The Dreamlord is behind everything.]]
At the end of Amy's Choice, we see the Dreamlord in the Tardis Console. Somehow when the Doctor exploded the Tardis in the Dreamworld the Dreamlord got trapped in the Tardis in the real world. The cracks are actually openings into the Dreamworld that the Dreamlord managed to place across the Universe. When the Tardis explodes the entire universe will be sucked into the Dreamworld the same way The Doctor, Rory and Amy were able to escape the Dreamworld by exploding the Tardis. Once this happens, seeing as the entire universe is inside the Dreamworld, the Dreamlord can manipulate the universe any way he pleases.

[[WMG: Prisoner Zero is behind everything.]]
Given Moff's love of the TimeyWimeyBall and the StableTimeLoop, this could be the event explains why he was a prisoner in the first place.. People have been created from Amy's memories, just as Zero disguised himself using them in the season opener. The Davros-like voice saying "Silence will fall"? He's using the Doctor's memories too. He makes the link while people are asleep, and in "Amy's Choice" all three characters were asleep for a long enough time.
* It's been hinted that he's a member of the Silence. And since he's Prisoner ''Zero'', that could mean he's either the first prisoner the Atraxi caught, OR he's the leader.

[[WMG: Human!Ten is behind everything.]]
Rose dumped him, because adventuring with the Doctor is quite different than settling down with him. He got to ''Waters of Mars''-level of madness, but had the ambition of a human instead of the wisdom of a Time Lord. Ten punched the first crack to this universe and began his quest to rip the Time Vortex apart and ascend to godhood. (He didn't see the gap year finale, but since he has the Doctor's memories from the end of the Time War, he knows of the possibility.)
Further evidence:
* The whole scheme is centered on Amy, and the Doctor's greatest weakness (and strength) is always his companion.
* The Doctor speculates in the Dream Lord episode about there being only one person who hates him so much, and is implied that that's the Doctor himself. Now, Human!Ten * is* the Doctor, (has his memories) additionally he was screwed over by the the Doctor. (stranded in a human body, with no TARDIS) Add Ten's emotional instability in late gap year to the mix, and you have the ultimate OmnicidalManiac.
* Someone was trying to build a TARDIS...
* He sends his greatest enemies on a wild goose chase after the real Doctor while he enacts the last phase of his plan.
* His voice is disembodied because he transmits it through the cracks.
* He can be the "good man, a hero to many" who gets killed by River.
** I'm not going to rule out the theory River killed the Doctor (or his clone), but she was already in jail at the beginning of the episode. It could have been for something else, I guess.
* In ''* Silence* in the Library'', Ten doesn't trust River, also mentions the possibility of River taking the screwdriver from his dead body. Maybe she did...




[[WMG:Dreamlord aka Valeyard is now an independent entity like the 4th/5th doctors Watcher]].
From the Angel episode: "What happens when dreams no longer need their dreamers?"
The Dreamlord is of course a Dream of the Doctors'. + Thematic element of all the Romans and such being
a dream of Amy's (whatever she might be).Not sure what this has to do with the lack of ducks in the pond though.Naturally,the Dreamlord (aka Valeyard) aka The Doctor is what's driving the TARDIS at the end of "Pandorica Opens." PS:The reset button will be everybody just...[[AllJustADream waking]] up.

[[WMG: Themes of this Season]]

Looking over the episodes of this season, I've been noticing a few trends.
* Growing up/Evolving/Change- Amy grows up, Liz 10 doesn't, and the dream pensioner's aging rates are slowed down. The Dalek are reborn, the Angels are restored, the Saturnynes change humans into themselves. The Silurians stay exactly the same due to their hibernation. The emergancy hologram changes forms to suit it's needs. And, of course, Regeneration.
* Disguises/Masquerades- Prisoner Zero's disguises, the star whale deception, the Daleks pretending to be servants, the Angel pretending to be dormant. Vampires pretending to be aristocrats, two dream worlds, the hidden Silurians, the invisible Krafayis, the emergancy hologram and the second floor. Not to mention the Pandorica.
* Senses- The Doctor adjusting to new taste buds, his HD memory, Amy's "Notice Everything" moment, Amy being blinded, and having to feel her way through the forest, the vampires tasting they're victims blood, The Doctor feeling the oddity of the ground near the drilling project, etc.
* Bringing about your own end- Prisoner Zeros connection with Amy, the Star Whale's charity causing it to suffer, Bracewell's attempted suicide, the Angels feeding on the Ship's energy, Rosanna sending the girls after the doctor and commiting suicide, Amy and the Doctor's suicides, Rory's sacrifice, the emergancy hologram's desire for a pilot, and, of course, Vincent...
** All of these themes may be united by the following over-arching message: The world is filled with scary things, many of which are inside yourself. Ignoring the monsters (on the inside especially) does not make the monsters go away. It simply makes the problem worse. The Angels can kill you, but the Cracks can erase your existence. Addressing an issue and facing the consequences is better than avoiding the issue and letting it grow like a cancer.



[[WMG: The doctor earns his title as a lonely god]]
Silence falled. The Tardis, Galaxies and Stars exploded. Everything is over. Only the Pandorica and the Doctor still exist, because... well, i have no idea. But now there is a lonely being which remembers all reality. And maybe the Doctor remembers desperatly enough, so that his memories held the Nothingness at bay. And a part of his memory is running around and will save the world from the BigBad. There we have our second Doctor. But now he can't never open the Pandorica or he will release his other self, which is now the cornerstone of all reality. The Doctor in the Pandorica is sealed forever. A truly lonely god.
* No chance, that it happens like that. I just wanted to add it, because i like the part about the Lonely God.

[[WMG: The TARDIS is evil]]
Remember the psychic pollen? The stuff that draws out your darkest side, created the Dream Lord, all that? Got into the TARDIS's rotors? Oh, yeah, and remember that the TARDIS is ''sentient''? The TARDIS is currently under the influence of its evil side, its equivalent of the Dream Lord. When it started behaving weirdly, taking River Song to the wrong time, locking her in, and then exploding in a cataclysmic universe-destroying explosion--nobody was messing with it. ''It did all that itself.'' ForTheEvulz.
** Holy crap, this is brilliant! It makes so much sense!
** It actually does, I agree. Matt Smith apparently said in one panel that the BigBad of the season was in the first episode "but not in a conventional way," the TARDIS has certainly taken some abuse from the Doctor over the years (intentional or not, that could cause some bitterness), and... the TARDIS never died in the 2015 Leadworth dream. It could still be dreaming while its dark side takes over.
*** If the TARDIS is evil, why did BBC America re-air an episode seemingly designed to repair mental imbalance in its audience? I'd say the TARDIS is approximately half-evil, half-good.
*** First off, what? Second off, did he say "the first episode", or "The Eleventh Hour". Because, as you all seem to forget (I blame the cracks in time) 11's first episode WASN'T The Eleventh Hour, it was The End of Time. Ten regenerated in that episode, and we saw 11 for the first time. Taking that interpretation of his words, it opens up the Big Bad List to every Time Lord (everyone from the Meddling Monk to The Master to The Rani), Handy (10 and Handy are both 10, so that could be the meaning of "not in the conventional way), Captain Jack Harkness (the man REALLY wants to die, I wonder what happens when an immortal fixed point in time actually finds a way, going by the last few times someone messed with a fixed point, it can't be healthy for anything), The Dreamlord (The Dreamlord is The Doctor, The Doctor was in both The End of Time and The Eleventh Hour, this is the most likely), The Valeyard, who may be the Dreamlord, time itself (because, well, what else hasn't tried to kill the Doctor yet?) or even Donna.

[[WMG: Mr. Pond is the season villain]]
The cast page for The Big Bang has been posted on the other wiki, and it looks rather... domestic. The only non-mundane things are the Doctor (duh), River Song (hardly indicative of much), and a "stone Dalek", which is handled by their usual Dalek prop handler, and seems to not even have a speaking role, though we don't know that for sure. Given the events of The Pandorica Opens, this seems rather odd.

But their is one incongruity. Mr. Pond is played by a "Helco Johnston". A quick Google search, as well as one of IMDB reveals no such person. Now, conceivably, they hired a really obscure actor, who doesn't even show up on Google. But I'd call that unlikely, especially with a name as unusual as Helco. This is clearly a pseudonym, and possibly an anagram, though for what I have no idea. But there's clearly something to conceal.

I'm guessing that Mr. Pond is a character we've seen before. If so, he's probably not a hero. I can't think of any heroic character whose identity they wish to conceal, which leaves villains. They'd only go to these lengths if it was someone important, so I'm guessing he's the main villain. I'm not just basing this on meta evidence. Amy says that she doesn't have parents. What does that even mean? And now he turns up. For the finale. I'd guess that he's going to play a major role, and not as a protagonist.

If anyone can crack the anagram or whatever it is for Helco Johnston, I'd be quite appreciative.

* "CLOTHES ON JOHN"? ...so Captain Jack is gonna turn up and '''not''' take his pants off?
** Yes. The new Whoniverse is a Mirror Universe. In the Series 5 Whoniverse, Eleven was biologically programmed to seduce people like Rory Pond or Jack Harkness. In the Series Shag Whoniverse, Jack Harkness is the only person who can refuse to have sex with Eleven, and Eleven is the only person who can refuse to have sex with Rory.
* CHEST JOHN LO NO -- Captain Jack will appear and have a shirtless scene, but not a pantless scene?

** OK. The big name I get out of it is Elton John; that leaves you with COSH, which doesn't make any particularly good words, which is unfortunate. You can also get STONE (which seems to link with the stone Dalek that's been seen) and that leaves you with LOCH JOHN. So god knows what's going on.
*** [[Series/{{Lost}} JOHN LOCH]]?
*** For the record, cosh is a perfectly fine word itself, meaning, among other things, to knock someone unconscious with a blunt instrument. So clearly the universe will be saved by Amy knocking Elton John's character out with a cricket bat. Presumably to stop him [[JustBugsMe/DoctorWho2005Series chasing the Doctor with a hatchet]] while singing ''Anthem''.
* CHLOE JOHNSTON - doesn't have the hugest filmography, but at least she shows up on Website/IMDb. As for MR. Pond, maybe he is a hermaprodite.. or a shapeshifter.. and a monkey-robot-pirate-ninja as well.
* CELT HO JOHNSON - a slutty druid, fits well with the Stonehenge.
** '''Jossed''', and Amy's dad is played by [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1546076/ ''Halcro'' Johnston]], and he has been in some minor parts.
** Eh, it was a reasonable theory. Wikipedia was wrong, so it was based on incorrect information, but I feel my conclusions were reasonable given the available information.
*** You were almost correct actually! You just got the wrong Mr. Pond! The mid-series cliffhanger involves Rory Pond snogging Eleven against the wall of the TARDIS. His reason? He thinks that he and Eleven need to move past their internalized homophobia. Technically, Eleven has already moved past this mentally, but he has not accepted Rory's existence emotionally. The Whoniverse is not fixed. It is a Pete's World with all the sadness dumped into the Series 5 Whoniverse. Even after the "Flesh and Stone" kiss, the Eleventh Doctor felt comfortable in his role. For Eleven, the "Flesh and Stone" snog was a localized Time Loop and out-of-body experience, so Eleven had as much time as he wanted to examine the situation. He determined that there was a 50% chance of Amy's plotline having a happy ending, and decided that 50% was acceptable odds. Eleven may have been a lot more scared of the snog with Rory (which I like to call the "Stone and Flesh" cliffhanger). This would explain why it was uncertain for a few weeks in October of 2010 whether or not the Eleventh Doctor would reprise his role in Series Seven. Note that Eleven was a lot more committed to portraying the second half of Series 5. Luckily he's decided to portray Series Seven despite the fact that it climaxes with his worst nightmare.
*** Mid-series cliffhanger nonsense Jossed.
*** As of "The Wedding of River Song" we've got ''another'' Mr. Pond, who has far more potential for villainy than the other two...


[[WMG: Amy is really a dream construct, to trap the Doctor.]]

* The Pandorica was based on her mind, and she seems to fit perfectly for what the Doctor needed when he found her: someone to constantly take his mind off of his troubles.
* Plastic!Rory was a fake, who believed he was real, so it's not out of the question.
* Planted by the Daleks or one of their 'allies'(they're also going to turn on their so-called alliance).

[[WMG: Mr.Pond is the Dream Lord.]]
Helco Johnson is either an obcusre actor or is concealing who will really play him. Helco Johnson's letters form Jones. Who played the Dream Lord. Toby Jones. Also, notice how Mr.Pond has no first name given, and no first name like the other cast.
* Wouldn't that make the Doctor Amy's father? If so, perhaps Amy will have a child named Susan later?
* Jossed. Nope, they're clearly different actors. No aliases like Anthony Ainley.

[[WMG: Mr. Pond is Darth Vader...]]
...and he will get a LukeIAmYourFather moment with Amy. (Who is apparently a regenerated and unknowing Princess Leia) Maybe we get to see Karen Gillan in a metal bikini.
* Also, Rory might be Luke, which will boost the squick-factor of their relationship to the skies.
* Note that the cracks are affecting EVERY universe, even the SW one. These three character fell through a crack into the Whoniverse and forgot who they were.
* The first crack was created when the Emperor hit the reactor. Good news for the Endor Holocaust Theory.
* Jossed. Amy recognises her father in "The Big Bang" right away.

[[WMG: Rory always was a Auton]]
Bit of the TimeyWimeyBall here. The trauma of killing Amy causes Auton!Rory's memory to partially short out, forgetting that he killed her. He lives the next 2000 years, then assumes his identity as Rory in Leadsworth and asks Amy to marry him, joins the Doctor again only to be killed and erased again- and then to copied again by the Alliance. This explains why he remembers being killed. Rory no doubt visited Amy's house often and the Alliance would have copied his memories too. This also explains why his hospital badge said 1990- as an Auton Rory doesn't age and he could have been in the hospital that long. He'd likely get a lot of comments about how good he looks for his age though....
* In "Eleventh Hour", Rory mentions how Amy asked him to dress up as the Doctor when they were kids. Now, a 20-ish guy playing with young Amelia is a bit weird...
** The nice Daleks saw Amelia playing with her [[{{Franchise/Barbie}} Ken doll]] and thought they could do [[BarbieDollAnatomy "better"]]...

[[WMG: The Doctor will stay stuck in the Pandorica for 2000 years and be released by a 7-year old Amelia Pond]]
This is how the "little girl" will save the universe. He will then tell Amelie the thing that he told Amy to remember in "Flesh and Stone".
* This actually seems pretty possible, considering Amelia appears to be in a museum of some sorts with the Pandorica. Although we don't know where or when this museum is. What came to mind was
-->'''River''': Two things always garunteed to show up in a museum, the homebox of a category 4 starliner, and sooner or later, [the Doctor].
* and
-->'''Rosanna''': You should be in a museum!.

* Though they're most likely not realted to the Pandorica at all, it might be a bit of foreshadowing.

* '''Semi-Confirmed.''' Young Amelia rescued her future self from the Pandorica instead.

[[WMG: The Doctor will get River's Vortex Manipulator and travel back over his own time line to fix things]]
This explains the shadowy figure in "The Eleventh Hour", the "other" Doctor in "Flesh and Stone" and various other minor "continuity errors" over the season.
* '''Semi-Confirmed''' with extra mind-screwy goodness. He does use the Manipulator, but the Shadowy figure and Jacket!Doctor was his timeline being rewound due to his HeroicSacrifice.

[[WMG: The black TARDIS or its creators will still show up for the finale.]]
Every episode in the season has thusfar had an influence on the finale within the main plot of the story.
* the eleventh hour set up the basic premise, introduced Amy and Rory, whose interaction was vital in the finale
* the beast below gave us elizabeth X, who appeared in the first part
* victory of the daleks gave us churchill and the new daleks, both making appearances in the finale
* The time of Angels and Flesh and stone gave us foreshadowing of the finale and the effect of the cracks in time and space, which shows that Rory should not have been able to survive.
* The vampires of Venice and Amy's choice both had the underlying story of connecting Rory and Amy again and to set up the adventures of Rory with the doctor.
* The hungry earth and cold blood gave us Homo Reptillius and the death of Rory
* Vincent and the Doctor gave us the painting that led to River breaking out of prison
* And then came The Lodger. The only influence this episode had on the finale was Amy finding the engagement ring, something that happened in a single scene and had no influence on the rest of the plot. This is the only episode in the season where the main plot did not work towards the finale. Maybe it has yet to show up.
** The lodger had part of a house being a tardis, and a staircase into nowhere (although IMO [[http://i754.photobucket.com/albums/xx181/DarkOverlordKtar/Doctor%20Who/Picture1.png the one in amy's house]] looks like there ''is'' another floor there - you can see the two ceilings aren't the same height)
** Given that in ''The Pandorica Opens'' the Doctor said that Amy's house was too big and had too many rooms, and that Creator/StevenMoffat has said that the BigBad is in the first episode, but not the way you'd expect, I'm guessing that Amy's House is the BigBad.
*** look at her front door. The window pattern makes it look ''very much'' like a police box
*** So the big bad is a [[color:red: minotaur]] and her [[color:blue: house]] is ''the'' [[Literature/HouseOfLeaves house]]?

* Nope, Jossed. However,[[spoiler: the black TARDIS does not appear again until the series 6 premiere.]]




[[WMG: Prisoner Zero is somehow related to the silence.]]
Not necisarrily the BigBad as in the theory above, but related. The key detail being something that I only realized in a LateToThePunchline. The line that it said early on "The Pandorica will open, and Silence will fall." The key word being AND. The Pandorica was designed by the Alliance to prevent the Silence from falling. That line would imply that Zero knows more about what's going on then they do.

[[WMG: The ring survived because Rory put it in the same force-field thing that kept the recorder from becoming anti-matter in ''The Three Doctors''.]]
They look rather similar, don't they? Thin bars of metal attatched to a thick base with ropes perpendicular to the bars tied around them. 11's is just smaller than 3's (but let's not go there.)



[[WMG: That voice that came from ''freaking nowhere'' in The Pandorica Opens and said "SILENCE WILL FALL" was the Dream Lord.]]

* And he's gonna say it again in the next series. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
** Could also be the voice of Prisoner Zero or some other chaos-focused villain. Perhaps the voice is meant to sound like a combination of chaos-focused villains seen previously in Series 5. Or perhaps it is the voice of the TARDIS. She may not be a villain, but she certainly seems chaos-focused.



[[WMG: When the Doctor Rebooted the Universe, he brought back Gallifrey and the Time Lords]]
Agreed. Although there's an audio drama that implies the Doctor turned human at some point, and this troper can see several humans that look like Time Lords. Perhaps Time Lords are supposed to be our higher selves (with the exception of imagination, which is supposed to be human). Modern humans who look like Time Lords when one makes eye-contact with them are probably the most Time Lord humans can get.
* {{Jossed}}. All the Time Lords are still dead, as confirmed by "The Doctor's Wife".

[[WMG: The Atraxi's prisoners are numbered in ''ascending'' order of scariness.]]
Prisoner Zero was the least dangerous, and so had the least security and was the first to escape. Soon, we will meet...PRISONER ONE! RUN!
* Prisoner number one was briefly contained in the Pandorica.
** Was Prisoner One the Eleventh Doctor?
*** And Prisoner Two will be the Valeyard.
* The fact he is numbered "Zero" that blows my mind in a Schrodinger kind of way

[[WMG: The TARDIS protecting earth was deliberate.]]
We know that the TARDIS is sentient. We know that it sealed the console room and stuck River in a Time loop to save her. Though it could be just protocol, it is more likely that without the Doctor there, the Tardis' priorities as its last acts were to protect the Doctor's companion and protect the Earth, becoming a substitute sun and providing radiation and gravity to allow humanity to keep living as long as it could.
* The TARDIS could have also been shielding Earth from the destruction of the Universe. The Doctor says the Earth was at the eye of the storm, but it could have just as well been that the Tardis knew the Doctor was on Earth and it's last act was not to protect humanity but to protect the Doctor.
** The TARDIS may have deliberately attempted to protect Earth because she knows that the protection of Earth is required for the Doctor to stay sane (or about as sane as the Doctor is supposed to be). When the TARDIS explodes, she deliberately protects all of the Companions and Allies of Eleven that remain in existence (assuming they were not all swallowed by Time Cracks) because she knows that the continued existence of these humans and humans in general are a psychological need of Eleven. The existence of most (if not all) of Eleven's Companions and Allies are tied to Eleven's deepest need. The TARDIS may be a Kinky Sex Machine Matchmaker.

[[WMG: The Pandorica is a void ship]]
In "Doomsday", isn't it explicitly stated that nothing can get inside a voidship and you could survive the end of the universe and the beginning of the next inside one?
* I suppose. And that has to do with the Pandorica how exactly?

[[WMG: The Cybermen featured in ''The Pandorica Opens'' and ''Blood of the Cybermen'' are ''not'' from Mondas ''or'' the Alternate Earth.]]
They are in fact a union of the two factions, having registered each other as being the same, with the same goals, they teamed up. The two shared their technology, the Mondas Cybermen benefiting from the Alternate Earth's conversion tech, armor and weaponry, and the Alternate Earth Cybermen gained the Cybermat, which replaced the Cybershades they used in ''The Next Doctor''.

[[WMG: The chickeny monster thing from "Vincent and the Doctor" is a ShoutOut]]
Specifically, to Literature/{{Discworld}}. I mean seriously, a brilliant MadArtist is the only one who can see an invisible chicken monster that's slow driving him mad(der)? That's straight out of ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!''
* ...damn, that actually makes sense!



[[WMG: Amy's Choice is about The Doctor performing an Film/{{Inception}} on Amy]]
With the intent of making her choose Rory over him, because The Doctor is tired of all the romantic drama he had to suffer through as Ten. He intentionally drove through the psychic pollen because he didn't have one of those PASIV suitcases on him. The Dream Lord was intentionally created by him (though not controlled) as a way of creating a situation that would make Amy choose Rory and show Amy how untrustworthy The Doctor really is.
* The Twelfth Doctor may be devious and deliberate, but the Eleventh Doctor seems to do things by accident. I think it is more likely that the TARDIS performed an Inception on Amy.
** There is no Twelfth Doctor. Matt's signed on until at least series 7.

[[WMG: Amy and Rory's dream lord counterparts in Amy's Choice are their baby and ponytail respectively]]
There is not enough darkness in their hearts to give their counterparts sentient form, but they are still there, taunting them about how different their lives would be without The Doctor.

[[WMG: Big Bang II never happened]]
It may occur in 2012 though, at least fictionally.

[[WMG: Series 5 was designed to isolate Whovian speculators]]
The Pandorica could be the most powerful ContinuityLockOut ever.

[[WMG: The Reapers have been erased from time through the cracks]]
The reapers, if you don't remember, came through time paradoxes and destroyed everything to stop a timey-wimey ball from destroying everything. Since they destroy everything influenced by the paradox, then there's no one to remember them for the Big Bang II. After all, the Doctor does say to Amy that if she remembers her parents, she can have them back. So if there's nobody who remembers the Reapers, there's no one to bring them back.

----[[WMG: The TARDIS is behind the cracks in time... only it's not the TARDIS.]]
Now stick with me: In The Eleventh Hour, the TARDIS crash landed in Amelia Pond's backyard. The Doctor and Amelia talk, open the crack, close it, and the Cloister bell rings. Now, when the cloister bell rings, it is not because its about to fly away, but because it was being attacked. By what, you ask? By the faux-TARDIS from the Lodger, which took its place. To recap The Lodger; Someone was trying to build a TARDIS, but there were two things wrong with it; 1: The TARDIS needed a pilot, and B: ... No, 2: TARDI are GROWN, not built.

Once the TARDIS in The Lodger got a taste of the power it could have working with/for The Doctor, it needed more, and rather than give up The Doctor because of ''ThePowerOfLove'', it actually went back in time, and replaced the real TARDIS while The Doctor was talking to Amelia.

To prove this point, if you would remember, at the beginning of the episode The Lodger, The Doctor is inexplicably thrown out of the TARDIS by a burst of air, which one would assume was because of the time loops. But, if you believe this theory, you could say that it was actually an action done purposely by the faux-TARDIS to get The Doctor to meet it's past self, so it could go back in time to replace the true TARDIS...

This theory, while far out, explains why both Prisoner Zero in The Eleventh Hour, and Angel Bob in the Weeping Angel two parter both said "The Doctor <in the TARDIS> doesn't know what's going on." Now, as a throwaway line, that doesn't seem like much, but they are actually telling The Doctor, "Helloo! You are IN the problem!"
** Additionally, The Moff has said that the culprit behind the cracks has showed up in The Eleventh Hour, although not obviously. How much more do we need?
** And in the preview for Series 6, there are shots of the TARDIS from The Lodger. (while the way it looks is constant with The Lodger, and not how it looks through the rest of the series, it may be explained.)
** And there is talk that Craig will be returning for Series 6.
** Jossed as of season six. Although, it's now even spookier given how the Silence remained secret. They ''were'' in The Eleventh Hour, but you've forgotten you saw them, kinda like the way the angels move.

[[WMG: Amy Pond is a future Doctor who's been under the Chameleon Arch.]]
For a large part of The Beast Below, Amy's behavior bears a striking resemblance to the way The Doctor acts when he's exploring. Then, in the voting booth, the machine declares that she is 1306 years old. The episode in set in the 29th century, so even if it's 2899, that would still put her birthdate as 1593. At the end, she refers to a creatur that is very kind, very old and the last of its kind being unable to ignore a child crying. She explains that she's seen this from her interaction with the Doctor, but what if it's from personal experience?
* Except that it was only the 29th century when Earth was roasted. It's been implied that Liz X has been reigning for close to 300 years, and she's the one who set up the whole system. Ergo, The Beast Below doesn't take place in the 29th century but the 32nd.
** But that still makes her birthdate to be 1893. Basically, it's either this or that computer can't do a simple calculation.
** We're never told if Liz X actually took command before the solar flares struck Earth. If Amy was born in 1989, then the age given in The Beast Below would place the year as 3295, which is three centuries after the 29th century.

[[WMG: In ''The Beast Below'', we see how the Valeyard could have been 'created'.]]
When The Doctor is about to [[spoiler: turn the SpaceWhale into a vegetable]], he says ''"And then I find a new name, because I won't be The Doctor anymore."''. In some alternate reality in which Amy didn't realize that [[spoiler: the SpaceWhale came to stop children from crying]], the Doctor ''did'' do it. He changes his name to The Valeyard, does increasingly nasty things, justifying them the way he did the events in The Beast Below. The Valeyard from the old stories is the 12th regeneration of ''that'' Doctor, but ''our'' Doctor. Because of Amy (and perhaps the cracks-in-reality thing going on), though, that Valeyard never comes to pass. He still exists in the old stories, for no other reason than he's just enough of The Doctor to not muck with history by removing his origins.

[[WMG: We haven't seen the last of Dr. Ramsden.]]
She won't necesarilly be plot relevent, besides as a side character to Rory, but did anyone else find it strange that Prisoner Zero claimed to have killed her and the nurses, and yet there were no bodies in the ward? No one even commented on it when barracading themselves in there. Add in that Zero has shown a tendancy to avoid unnecessary bloodshed, the Doctor even trying to bargain with it early on, and it really seems the claims to be less then reliable.

[[WMG: The cracks in time will re-write the events of the Time-war]]
Hence reviving the Time Lords. It's possible. After all, we already know, according to the Doctor, that time is not as linear as all that. It is possible that the cracks could erase certain events that would have led up to the war being time-locked, but have still allowed for the doctor to go on all his current adventures.
* Jossed. The Time Lords are still lost as of "The Doctor's Wife".

[[WMG: The Weeping Angels could always move as stone]]
Human mothers can be known to do magnificent feats when their children are endangered, such as lift cars, which is not possible in usual life. In psychology, this is called the "fight or flight" response. Well, why is it such a stretch to say that, in a crisis, the angels could still be stone, but move, though significantly slower than their real-body? In "Blink" whenever they moved, we heard the song of wings-not the crunching of stones. Just as they can consciously turn themselves stone, they can consciously move as stone-after all, they still can't be killed. Not blinking won't even save you now.

[[WMG: There was only one original Weeping Angel.]]
It reproduced by images, which then later themselves reproduced by images, and so on. And since each generation of copies may likely be weaker than those before them, the older copies would be much more powerful, not to mention the original.

[[WMG: The Dreamlord was real]]
See [[http://londonparticulars.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/who-cares/ here]] for details. Summary: the Doctor was wrong when he said the Dreamlord wasn't real and so when he prepared to blow the TARDIS up, it actually did explode, causing the cracks in reality and TARDIS shrapnel. Everything that happened since then has been an alternative reality.
* Jossed. The explosion was in Leadworth, 2010, not in orbit around a cold star.

[[WMG: The TARDIS - and Steven Moffat - have grown tired of the sonic screwdriver's inability to bypass a deadlock seal and the Eleventh Doctor's new screwdriver is now able to do so.]]
The Doctor explicitly states in "The Pandorica Opens" that he can easily open the Pandorica, despite the specific mention of deadlocks. Also, Steven Moffat actually introduced the concept in "The Empty Child" and is presumably sick of the writing team's reliance upon them - particularly the work of Russell T Davies which included the mention of double, triple and maximum deadlocks - presumably stuff the Doctor SERIOUSLY can't open (the Torchwood SUV is triple deadlocked, even!) Therefore, to force the storylines to be more complex, Moffat has ended his own era and and the new screwdriver has been upgraded to deal with those bothersome deadlocks.

[[WMG: As of the New Series, The Doctor is now calculating his age using Earth Years. In the original series, he was calculating his age using Gallifreyan Years]]

One year is the amount of time it takes a planet to orbit its Sun Once. So a year on one planet is highly unlikely to be exactly the same length as a year on another planet.

Given that, there's a fair possibility that once Gallifrey was no more, The Doctor - who has always been more at home on Earth anyway - began using the Earth calendar to keep measurement of his age. So presuming that Gallifrey has shorter years than Earth, he could easily have been 953 years old in Gallifreyan Years during "Time and The Rani" and then later have been just over 907 years old in Earth Years in "Flesh and Stone".

* Alternatively, maybe he used Earth years to start with (he was rebelling against Gallifrey and it's laws for a fair bit during the Classic series, wasn't he?) and because Gallifrey got destroyed, he decided to remember his planet through little things- like using the Gallifreyan calendar. This would work if Gallifreyan years were longer than Earth years.
** On a related note, how exactly is a year calculated on a planet with two suns?
*** Depends on the type of Binary System - Most have a primary that has a secondary orbiting it like a planet, thus if the planet is orbiting the primary, then it is following the orbit of the primary. If it is orbiting the secondary, it still would follow the orbit of the primary, as well. Now, if the primary and secondary are orbiting in the center, and the planets are orbiting around both, it is probably a work of astronomy to determine the exact time one full rotation would be, as these masses would not make for stable orbits...

[[WMG: The Doctor was doing an alien tribal dance at Amy and Rory's wedding.]]
Specifically, the Barcelonian Sacred Dance of Joy, traditionally performed at weddings by the family of the bride to bring good luck to the newlyweds.
* So does this mean the Doctor considers Amy to be family?
** Well, he is her imaginary friend...
** and her [[spoiler: son-in-law]].

[[WMG: River meets the Doctor when...]]
He's imprisoned somewhere and she frees him. In Pandorica she is alone and mutters that she doesn't know why she let him out.

to:

[[WMG: Amy's Choice is about The Doctor performing an Film/{{Inception}} on Amy]]
With the intent of making her choose Rory over him, because The Doctor is tired of all the romantic drama he had to suffer through as Ten. He intentionally drove through the psychic pollen because he didn't have one of those PASIV suitcases on him. The Dream Lord was intentionally created by him (though not controlled) as a way of creating a situation that would make Amy choose Rory and show Amy how untrustworthy The Doctor really is.
* The Twelfth Doctor may be devious and deliberate, but the Eleventh Doctor seems to do things by accident. I think it is more likely that the TARDIS performed an Inception on Amy.
** There is no Twelfth Doctor. Matt's signed on until at least series 7.

[[WMG: Amy and Rory's dream lord counterparts in Amy's Choice are their baby and ponytail respectively]]
There is not enough darkness in their hearts to give their counterparts sentient form, but they are still there, taunting them about how different their lives would be without The Doctor.

[[WMG: Big Bang II never happened]]
It may occur in 2012 though, at least fictionally.

[[WMG: Series 5 was designed to isolate Whovian speculators]]
The Pandorica could be the most powerful ContinuityLockOut ever.

[[WMG: The Reapers have been erased from time through the cracks]]
The reapers, if you don't remember, came through time paradoxes and destroyed everything to stop a timey-wimey ball from destroying everything. Since they destroy everything influenced by the paradox, then there's no one to remember them for the Big Bang II. After all, the Doctor does say to Amy that if she remembers her parents, she can have them back. So if there's nobody who remembers the Reapers, there's no one to bring them back.

----[[WMG: The
TARDIS is behind the cracks in time... only it's not the TARDIS.exploding wasn't intended to end everything.]]
Now stick with me: In The Eleventh Hour, the TARDIS crash landed in Amelia Pond's backyard. The Doctor and Amelia talk, open the crack, close it, and the Cloister bell rings. Now, when the cloister bell rings, it is not because its about to fly away, but because it was being attacked. By what, you ask? By the faux-TARDIS from the Lodger, which took its place. To recap The Lodger; Someone was trying to build a TARDIS, but there were two things wrong with it; 1: The TARDIS needed a pilot, and B: ... No, 2: TARDI are GROWN, not built.

Once the TARDIS in The Lodger got a taste
From what we've seen of the power it could have working with/for The Doctor, it needed more, and rather than give up The Doctor because of ''ThePowerOfLove'', it actually went back in time, and replaced the real TARDIS while The Doctor was talking to Amelia.

To prove this point, if you would remember, at the beginning of the episode The Lodger, The Doctor is inexplicably thrown out of the TARDIS by a burst of air, which one would assume was because of the time loops. But, if you believe this theory, you could say that it was actually an action done purposely by the faux-TARDIS to get The Doctor to meet it's past self, so it could go back in time to replace the true TARDIS...

This theory, while far out, explains why both Prisoner Zero in The Eleventh Hour, and Angel Bob in the Weeping Angel two parter both said "The Doctor <in the TARDIS> doesn't know what's going on." Now, as a throwaway line, that doesn't
Silence, they don't seem like much, but [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal maniacs.]] Yet they're responsible for the cracks. Why did they are actually telling The Doctor, "Helloo! You are IN do this? All part of their EvilPlan. [[GenreSavvy They knew the problem!"
** Additionally, The Moff has said that the culprit
Doctor would save reality,]] because they were behind it and the cracks has showed up in Pandorica. The Eleventh Hour, although not obviously. How much more do we need?
** And in the preview for Series 6, there are shots of the TARDIS from The Lodger. (while the way it looks is constant with The Lodger, and not how it looks through the rest of the series, it may be explained.)
** And there is talk
fact that Craig will be returning for Series 6.
** Jossed as of season six. Although, it's now even spookier given how the Silence remained secret. They ''were'' in The Eleventh Hour, but you've forgotten you saw them, kinda like the way the angels move.

[[WMG:
Amy Pond is a future was capable of remembering the Doctor who's back into existence was an extension of their ultimate plan-to learn and perfect rewriting reality. To become a more powerful force, [[AGodAmI even gods.]] Their sudden prescene could be an example of this-before Series Six, they could've been under the Chameleon Arch.a primitive race. Now,they're manipulating humanity. [[GalacticConqueror And in]] [[DimensionLord a few more]] [[MultiversalConqueror attempts...]]
For a large part of The Beast Below, Amy's behavior bears a striking resemblance to the way The Doctor acts when he's exploring. Then, in the voting booth, the machine declares that she is 1306 years old. The episode in set in the 29th century, so even if it's 2899, that would still put her birthdate as 1593. At the end, she refers to a creatur that is very kind, very old and the last of its kind being unable to ignore a child crying. She explains that she's seen this from her interaction with the Doctor, but what if it's from personal experience?
* Except that it was only the 29th century when Earth was roasted. It's been implied that Liz X has been reigning for close to 300 years, and she's the one who set up the whole system. Ergo, The Beast Below doesn't take place in the 29th century but the 32nd.
** But that still makes her birthdate to be 1893. Basically, it's either this or that computer can't do a simple calculation.
** We're never told if Liz X actually took command before the solar flares struck Earth. If Amy was born in 1989, then the age given in The Beast Below would place the year as 3295, which is three centuries after the 29th century.

[[WMG: In ''The Beast Below'', we see how the Valeyard could have been 'created'.]]
When The Doctor is about to [[spoiler: turn the SpaceWhale into a vegetable]], he says ''"And then I find a new name, because I won't be The Doctor anymore."''. In some alternate reality in which Amy didn't realize that [[spoiler: the SpaceWhale came to stop children from crying]], the Doctor ''did'' do it. He changes his name to The Valeyard, does increasingly nasty things, justifying them the way he did the events in The Beast Below. The Valeyard from the old stories is the 12th regeneration of ''that'' Doctor, but ''our'' Doctor. Because of Amy (and perhaps the cracks-in-reality thing going on), though, that Valeyard never comes to pass. He still exists in the old stories, for no other reason than he's just enough of The Doctor to not muck with history by removing his origins.

[[WMG: We haven't seen the last of Dr. Ramsden.]]
She won't necesarilly be plot relevent, besides as a side character to Rory, but did anyone else find it strange that Prisoner Zero claimed to have killed her and the nurses, and yet there were no bodies in the ward? No one even commented on it when barracading themselves in there. Add in that Zero has shown a tendancy to avoid unnecessary bloodshed, the Doctor even trying to bargain with it early on, and it really seems the claims to be less then reliable.

[[WMG: The cracks in time will re-write the events of the Time-war]]
Hence reviving the Time Lords. It's possible. After all, we already know, according to the Doctor, that time is not as linear as all that. It is possible that the cracks could erase certain events that would have led up to the war being time-locked, but have still allowed for the doctor to go on all his current adventures.
* Jossed. The Time Lords are still lost as of "The Doctor's Wife".

[[WMG: The Weeping Angels could always move as stone]]
Human mothers can be known to do magnificent feats when their children are endangered, such as lift cars, which is not possible in usual life. In psychology, this is called the "fight or flight" response. Well, why is it such a stretch to say that, in a crisis, the angels could still be stone, but move, though significantly slower than their real-body? In "Blink" whenever they moved, we heard the song of wings-not the crunching of stones. Just as they can consciously turn themselves stone, they can consciously move as stone-after all, they still can't be killed. Not blinking won't even save you now.

[[WMG: There was only one original Weeping Angel.]]
It reproduced by images, which then later themselves reproduced by images, and so on. And since each generation of copies may likely be weaker than those before them, the older copies would be much more powerful, not to mention the original.

[[WMG: The Dreamlord was real]]
See [[http://londonparticulars.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/who-cares/ here]] for details. Summary: the Doctor was wrong when he said the Dreamlord wasn't real and so when he prepared to blow the TARDIS up, it actually did explode, causing the cracks in reality and TARDIS shrapnel. Everything that happened since then has been an alternative reality.
* Jossed. The explosion was in Leadworth, 2010, not in orbit around a cold star.

[[WMG: The TARDIS - and Steven Moffat - have grown tired of the sonic screwdriver's inability to bypass a deadlock seal and the Eleventh Doctor's new screwdriver is now able to do so.]]
The Doctor explicitly states in "The Pandorica Opens" that he can easily open the Pandorica, despite the specific mention of deadlocks. Also, Steven Moffat actually introduced the concept in "The Empty Child" and is presumably sick of the writing team's reliance upon them - particularly the work of Russell T Davies which included the mention of double, triple and maximum deadlocks - presumably stuff the Doctor SERIOUSLY can't open (the Torchwood SUV is triple deadlocked, even!) Therefore, to force the storylines to be more complex, Moffat has ended his own era and and the new screwdriver has been upgraded to deal with those bothersome deadlocks.

[[WMG: As of the New Series, The Doctor is now calculating his age using Earth Years. In the original series, he was calculating his age using Gallifreyan Years]]

One year is the amount of time it takes a planet to orbit its Sun Once. So a year on one planet is highly unlikely to be exactly the same length as a year on another planet.

Given that, there's a fair possibility that once Gallifrey was no more, The Doctor - who has always been more at home on Earth anyway - began using the Earth calendar to keep measurement of his age. So presuming that Gallifrey has shorter years than Earth, he could easily have been 953 years old in Gallifreyan Years during "Time and The Rani" and then later have been just over 907 years old in Earth Years in "Flesh and Stone".

* Alternatively, maybe he used Earth years to start with (he going on a theory that they're actually good guys, it was rebelling against Gallifrey and it's laws for a fair bit during {{plan}} to get the Classic series, wasn't he?) and because Gallifrey got Doc more regenerations, as they believed that being basically recreated out of Amy's memories would set him back as the first, while still preserving his previous incarnations due to the Doctor himself remembering them. And whoever posted above that this had reset his regenerations was a Silent attempting to gain redemption in the eyes of the fans.
** If the Silence are good guys, they may have altered history so they can be Earth's protection. That way, even in the event of the Doctor's death, the universe will be safe. Or they're one of many individuals who think the Doctor is a threat to the universe. Their {{plan}} would mean the universe wouldn't stay
destroyed, he decided to remember his planet through little things- like using the Gallifreyan calendar. This would work if Gallifreyan years were longer than Earth years.
** On a related note, how exactly is a year calculated on a planet with two suns?
*** Depends on the type of Binary System - Most have a primary that has a secondary orbiting it like a planet, thus if the planet is orbiting the primary, then it is following the orbit of the primary. If it is orbiting the secondary, it still would follow the orbit of the primary, as well. Now, if the primary
and secondary are orbiting be reset in the center, and the planets are orbiting around both, it is probably a work of astronomy to determine the exact time one full rotation would be, as these masses would not make for stable orbits...

[[WMG: The Doctor was doing an alien tribal dance at Amy and Rory's wedding.]]
Specifically, the Barcelonian Sacred Dance of Joy, traditionally performed at weddings by the family of the bride to bring good luck to the newlyweds.
* So does this mean
end. However the Doctor considers Amy would be DeaderThanDead, aka RetGone. Everything he's doen to be family?
save reality, however, would remain. So the universe remains safe.
** Well, he is her imaginary friend...
**
Seems partly confirmed: [[WellIntentionedExtremist their ends are good]], but their means are extreme and her [[spoiler: son-in-law]].

[[WMG: River meets

[[WMG:The Silence's scheme to kill
the Doctor when...]]

The very reason the Silence wanted to kill the Doctor is to prevent him from kickstarting the chain of events
that she doesn't know why she let led him out.
to turn the human race against them, but it was their assination attempt that triggered the chain of events leading to their defeat later. The Silence shot their own feet.
** Confirmed.



[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jossed]]

[[WMG: The Rory rumoured to appear in the finale is...]]
the original IdenticalGrandfather. Let's see:
a) RTD had already {{Technobabble}}d an explanation in "Journey's End". Wouldn't it be cool for Moffy to [[ArcWelding Arc Weld]] a throwaway line into the season's twist?
b) It's CrazyEnoughToWork

So, the finale is approaching. Any idea?

* And it's '''Jossed!'''. It's the real Rory, too. In a manner of speaking.

[[WMG: The Other Doctor/10.5/Valeyard? is behind everything in series 5]]
Because its so crazy it might be true. He's probably the one manipulating the Daleks too. Thats why they win.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord is the Celestial Toymaker]]
As the preview for ''Amy's Choice'' would suggest, this "Dream Lord" is perfectly capable of creating alternate realities to trap the Doctor, Amy, and Rory in for what looks like no reason other than teh lolz. Also (of course this is from the ExpandedUniverse so its canonicity is up to you) the Celestial Toymaker has been called the Crystal Guardian who governs dreams and games. And it's about time [[RuleofCool he showed back up too]].
* Jossed. He's the dark side of the Doctor's mind.

[[WMG: The Doctor in tweed isn't the Doctor at all.]]
And who can take others forms and knew Amy when she was 7? Either Zero has escaped again, or is using the link to project to Amy from it's cell. Given that they took 12 years to catch it, I don't see them being in any rush to carry out the execution. And even if they did, we don't really know how their connection works. Either way, Zero has something larger planned for the Cracks, and is attempting to activate some sort of command or ruse it planted in Amy's mind when she was still a child.

[[WMG: The real Amy Pond is dead.]]
She was killed after the Doctor left her house for the first time. She's really an artificial being created by the Alliance to work as an information gatherer in order to get the Doctor into the Pandorica.
* In that case, why didn't the Alliance just shut down/turn to "obedient mode" the Artificial!Amy?
** Perhaps because they needed her to be as close to the "real" Amy as possible so that the Doctor wouldn't be suspicious?
*** But when they eliminated her through Rory, the Doctor is already restrained and knows of the Alliance's plans. Perhaps they killed her because she would resist her programming even harder than Auton!Rory.
* On the other hand, Amy's room is full of her art about the Doctor, also her two favorite childhood books. It looks more like the room of an 8-year-old girl than a 21-yo one. (Except for the wedding dress, which could have easily been placed there by the Alliance.) My theory is this: young Amy was kidnapped/killed, then a few days before the arrival of the Doctor kissogram Amy and Rory were placed in Ledgeworth, and a perception filter was applied to other inhabitants of the village. The fact that we know plenty of Amy's childhood and her present self, but nothing in-between seems to support his. Prisoner Zero was also part of the plan, he made sure that the Doctor gets interested in Amy and is informed about the Pandorica arc. When Rory is absorbed by the crack, he gets erased from history because he never existed in the first place. In essence, it's nothing more than a perception filter shutting down. (Still working on why the clerics get erased)

[[WMG: Alternately, the real Amy Pond is ''gone''.]]
The Doctor came back for her after being released from the Pandorica by his future self.

[[WMG:The Eleventh Doctor will spend some time stranded on Earth along the lines of what happened with Three]]

The violent regeneration pretty thoroughly trashed the TARDIS and it's in for a crash landing at "The End of Time Part 2". Just the damage we saw could well be enough to justify building a new set for the interior of the TARDIS and stranding the Doctor on Earth for some time while he fixes the TARDIS.
* {{Jossed}}. While the TARDIS did get repaired (with a new control room), she did so herself and was fixed within a day. He gets stranded later on in "The Lodger", but that's not in the same league as Three's three-year exile.

[[WMG:The Dalek Civil War will make an appearance in series 5]]
In the trailer for series 5, we see two Daleks. The first is clearly dark grey (much like the Renegade Daleks); though we only see the head of the second, it's clearly white (much like the Imperial Daleks)
* {{Jossed}}. There's some Daleks from the Medusa Cascade; they're loyal to both the Dalek Supreme (or "Supreme One") AND Davros, so they fit neither Renegade or Imperial. The taller ones with colour schemes were a new post-Time War breed created through a Progenitor device. In other words, prior to series 5, these five Daleks did not exist.

[[WMG: Alternatively, there will be a new Dalek Civil War]]
Between the [[FanNickname Dalek Rangers]] and Void Daleks. Admit it, it would be awesome.
* '''Confirmed.''' Ish. The Doctor Who Experience (a "walk-through episode" in the UK) has a battle between the old Daleks and Paradigm Daleks as a setpiece.
* In terms of series 5 itself, '''{{Jossed}}'''. The old Daleks willingly let themselves be killed by the Progenitors, due to their inferior DNA.

[[WMG: The ArcWords of Series 5 will be "MΨTH"]]
* It's on, at the very least, Jeff's laptop and a bunch of the coma equipment. Some sort of [[{{Series/Firefly}} Blue Sun]] / [[Series/TheMiddleman FatBoy Industries]] type company, perhaps?
* '''Jossed.''' Looks like it was a red herring.
** Not necessarily. Matt Smith has said there are not one but FIVE arc words. So assuming that the Silence the cracks and the Pandorica were three of them that leaves two extra. And the arc ISN'T over as the identity of who created the Cracks will be revealed in series 6.
** Wasn't another of the ArcWords suppose to be "time can be rewritten?" Shouldn't that count as well?

[[WMG: The ArcWords of Series 5 will be "fairy story/stories"]]
Every episode so far up to Ep. 5
* '''Jossed''', but they did have a very important part to play in the finale.

[[WMG: Jack Will Become The Beast Beneath]]
At some point between going from how he looked at the end of ''Children of Earth'' to the Face of Boe, he will become the Space Whale that rescues the children of the UK. the evidence for this is simple:
* We know Jack will go through a massive physical transformation as a result of just being sooooo old.
* Jack has hinted that he has had past...err...''contact'' with space whales.
* After the events detailed in ''Children of Earth'', Jack will likely feel an obligation and duty that will make him friends to all children, and feel especially obligated to the children of the UK.
* The Space Whale's plan consisted of going to earth, being captured, being used a means of transport, and then being painfully tortured over the course of several centuries until someone awesome rescues him, which follows the standard arc of most Jackplans.
* Or even more depressing, Jack due to his actions in the sixties led to multiple deaths latter on including his own grandson. Will be driven to protect the Children of Britain. He knows already what is going to happen to him but takes it as a form of penance, hundreds of years of agony for the deaths of Ianto and his grandson. And for how many other people killed by his actions or inaction no matter how necessary .

[[WMG: Amy Pond lives in a psychiatric hospital, dreaming that the Doctor returned for her]]
The Doctor wasn't 12 years late, more like 120. Amy is deluding herself, imagining all the adventures we see. The cracks tend to show up to remind her of the most traumatic experience of her childhood.
* All previous "new Who" companions had a downer ending. After Donna, it will be rather hard to raise the stakes, but this might just cut it.
** How is Martha choosing to leave of her own accord because she's sick of pining over the Doctor a downer ending? She left ''of her own free will'' and had (still has as far as I'm aware) the ability to contact the Doctor if she needs him.
* The duck pond doesn't have any ducks, because it's just a figment of her imagination.
* If this theory is not true, some villains might still mess with Amy's brain, leaving her to believe it is, à la Captain Sisko in ''Star Trek: Deep Space Nine''.
* Alternatively, she might be [[WMG/{{Garfield}} a lonely girl starving to death in an empty house]].
** Yeah, probably not...

[[WMG: Jackson Lake will return in Series 5]]
Jackson Lake. Amy Pond. River Song. Might be just a coincidence, but there is seemingly a pattern emerging with companions named after bodies of water. Might have something to do with the Doctor drawing Amy's attention to the Duck Pond with No Ducks In It.
* Added: I was pointed out to Adelaide Brooke too.
* Jackson hasn't come back, but the bodies of water are indeed significant--[[spoiler: River Song = Melody Pond!]]

[[WMG: The Clerics are a future version of The Church of the Assembly of Man from FanFic/TheReturn.]]
I have no justification of this other than [[RuleOfCool it'd be cool]].

[[WMG:Amelia Pond is a Time Lord superweapon.]]
Wayback in their first proper appearance,the Time Lords were summoned by the Second Doctor
to fix something.Thier response was to
* 1.Execute a renegade Time Lord
* 2.Force the Doctor to regenerate.
* 3.''Delete an entire military regime and all its soldiers from history.''
* So the reason Amy Pond recalls no Daleks is because she erased them from history, just as the Time Lords intended. PS.She's the Nightmare Child (since she's the only companion we see as a child or having a nightmare).

[[WMG: Amy is Turlough's daughter.]]
Both are ginger. Both have rather snarky personalities. And honestly, Amy is how I imagined a [[GenderFlip genderflipped]] Turlough to be. It's canon that Amy's an orphan, it could be that she was the result of a one night stand Turlough had with a an Earthling. Now, how to prove Turlough would be on the planet around the time Amy was conceived...

[[WMG:Rory is The Master.]]
In all (or almost all) his oldWho appearances,The Master gets into swordfights, losing only to the Doctor.
Rory got into a swordfight.Also:Rory seems distinctly unfreaked out by the TARDIS "It's another dimension."
ExactWords,because he already knows how it works and ''exactly'' what the Doctor would say.
* {{Jossed}}. Rory got erased from time and The Doctor kept all his memories of him. Had he been the Master he would have lost them and who knows what would happen to his mind if that happened.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord is the TARDIS]]
Formiddable psychic power, age measured in centuries, access to Doctor's darkest secrets... yup, definitely rings a Cloister Bell.
* So...the dreams were all because the TARDIS's consciousness! The dust that had knocked the three into unconsciousness DID get into the TARDIS's engine, and since it has been said the TARDIS is a sentient being, it manifested itself as the Dream Lord.
* This theory would explain why the TARDIS seems to do the Dream Lord's bidding. In the scene in "Vincent and the Doctor" where the Doctor introduces Vincent to the TARDIS, the Doctor does not quite look in control of the situation, which may indicate that the TARDIS decided to invite Vincent inside. The TARDIS misbehaves more severely in "The Lodger". Rather than directing Eleven's subconscious to a certain location as it seems to do in "Vincent and the Doctor", it takes him to a place he never consciously intended to go, and throws Eleven out until he takes action in stabilizing the TARDIS (by stabilizing the crashed Time Engine). If the TARDIS is as lust-powered as it behaves, then Eleven could have stabilized it by actually going along with what it wanted in several episodes (if not the entire series). These episodes include: "The Eleventh Hour", "Flesh and Stone", "Vincent and the Doctor", "The Lodger", and "The Pandorica Opens". Eleven finally stabilizes the TARDIS (at least temporarily) in "The Big Bang".

[[WMG: The first ten Doctors never existed, Eleven really is Amy's imaginary friend, and the Crack in Reality can work in reverse.]]
''(from [[http://community.livejournal.com/fanficrants/9552494.html?thread=299601774#t299601774 a comment on FFR]])''
Eleven, along with all his memories, were created by Amy when she wished for someone to fix the crack in her wall. Because she was constantly exposed to the fracture in reality in childhood, the crack in reality absorbed images from her imagination and created the Doctor. No one can remember the events from previous series because they never actually happened.
* This kind of thing could tie in with River Song saying "After all, we're all fairy tales." at the end of Flesh and Stone.
* One can only wonder then what was going through her mind then to create the events of ''[[Recap/DoctorWho1985JFIGSAFixWithSontarans A Fix With Sontarans]]''...
* Semi-Confirmed, argubly.

[[WMG: The Doctor thinks Amy's uncertainty about the wedding will cause the universe to split, at a weak point where it can't afford to.]]
The schism into two parallel universes, one where the wedding occurred and one where it didn't, is happening at the same moment as a lot of other timey-wimey stuff, creating a perfect storm that threatens to end the universe. The Doctor thinks that by making Amy travel with him and Rory until she's absolutely committed to him, he can prevent the "no wedding" universe from coming into existence. [[YouCantThwartStageOne Of course]], he's wrong. He'll get Amy sorted out, then ''Rory'' will cause the rift.
* ...Cold Blood may well have just done this. No Rory, no wedding, no character development for Amy, etc. Cue massive paradox that causes gigantic rifts and cracks in time!

[[WMG: The Rani will return.]]
Old villians left, right and centre have been returning and its never said in the show whether she died, so its possible.

[[WMG: The reason the Angels didn't move before Flesh and Stone is because of the camera man.]]

In Attack of the Graske, the camera man is confirmed to be in-universe, as the Doctor addresses him: (Including you, mate. Where DO you get the energy?). Therefore, we can conclude that the reason the Angels didn't move during Blink when Sally/Cathy/Larry couldn't see them is not because the audience was looking at them, as was originally thought, but because the camera man was looking. Whereas, in Flesh and Stone, the camera man looks away (though of course the audience can't see this, as he's behind the camera), and thusly the Angels move.
* {{Jossed}}. The Doctor was talking to the audience member with the remote/mouse, not any camera man. Who looks directly into a lens to speak to a camera man?

[[WMG: The Pandorica is...]]
Amy herself. She's said that the cracks in time seem to be following her. We'll just have to wait and see.
* Not quite, but she did wind up inside it for a couple of thousand years until Amelia touched it to restore her.
* It seems more likely that Amy is the main reason the Pandorica unlocked itself from the inside. In "The Pandorica Opens", the Pandorica seems to unlock every time the Doctor gets an impulse, so when Amy snogs the Doctor in "Flesh and Stone", the kiss may have resulted in the Pandorica unlocking.
** That second bullet is completely {{Jossed}} like it isn't even funny.

[[WMG: Rory is not coming back, and Amy will be killed in the finale.]]
Any future appearances will be a hallucination / impostor taking his form. The reason there was no information available about Amy's maritial status in ''The Beast Below'' was because to the future timeline he never existed, and Amy may have never married.

He's gone, pretty much set up to be the Adric of the new generation, and is never coming back.

Amy may well not survive the finale either, which would make two dead companions in the span of one season for the Eleventh Doctor. Moffat may well be trying to break The Doctor more than RTD ever did... 06/26/2010 could be the date of Amy's ''death'', not her wedding.

* {{Jossed}}. Rory, is back, as a human and everything. Amy's killed in the climax of the first part, but she was OnlyMostlyDead.

[[WMG: The Dreamlord is not part of the Doctor.]]
When in the butcher shop, the Dreamlord derisevly says that the Doctor is 'probably a vegetarian,' when he is obviously not (as recently as the Eleventh Hour he eats bacon and fish sticks with little moral hesitation). Something that was literally a manifestation of his darker side would not make such a glaring mistake, hence the Dreamlord is something external to the Doctor which nevertheless knows a great deal about him.
* Except the Doctor's tastes and preferences change from regeneration to regeneration, and he was trying to figure out what food he liked then. He threw out the bacon, don't forget, and for some reason fish is considered something vegetarians actually can eat (not vegans, however, but that's digressing). We haven't seen Eleven eat anything else yet, so he could be vegetarian, theoretically, if he dislikes other meats. Plus, given the inevitable rise to "Dream Lord is the Valeyard" theories it could also be a shout-out to Six, the Doctor who met the Valeyard, being vegetarian.
** While we don't see him eat it, the omelette that the Doctor cooks in The Lodger has ham in it. That makes a shout-out a more likely explanation.
** During The Two Doctors, the Sixth Doctor vows to become a vegetarian after meeting an [[IAmAHumanitarian Androgum]] (and seeing Two turned into one as well). This does not stick forever (Nine had steak in Boom Town) and wouldn't fit with the Dreamlord's comment anyway; the Doctor swore off meat because he was thoroughly disgusted by what he'd seen his previous self become. The Dreamlord's comment implied moral condescension, not personal distaste, while the Doctor vowed to become a vegetarian in much the same way that a drunkard may swear, "I'll never drink again."
* It's possible that the Doctor is either wrong or [[BlatantLies completely lying]] at the end of the episode, explaining the dreams as being caused by "sleep dust" or whatever. [[BlatantLies He seemed a bit ''too'' quick in explaining that]]...plus the last shot of the Dream Lord in his reflection...

[[WMG: Amy Pond is in a parallel universe]]

Somehow, during the regeneration, the Doctor managed to break through to another universe. Due to the fact he had just finished regenerating, and into a madman no less, he didn't realise this. Breaking through to the other universe caused the cracks, and it explains why Amy can't remember the Daleks.

The two problems with this are River and Churchill. River could have moved between universes, if a future doctor told her she had to, and how to do it. And as for Churchill, this universe may have split after UsefulNotes/WW2, so when the Doctor travelled back in time it was to a time when the two universes were together.

* River and Churchill could be explained, actually. Maybe Amy's Universe had it's own Doctor who had similar - but not identical - adventures.
** In that case that universe is in more trouble than I thought; having two doctors has got to have repurcussions somewhere; maybe that's contributing to the cracks.

[[WMG: The 'Time Capsule TARDIS' in The Lodger was built by the Ood.]]
No real reasons for this, barring true conjecture. The controls seem very Ood, placing your hand against the controls. A Time Lord was too powerful for it, but humans too weak. And the Ood's technology was advancing at about 10x speed. [=TARDISes=] were in the path of technology they'd develop, given they could already psychically see across time.

[[WMG: The prisoner within the Pandorica is...]]
* '''...Davros.'''
** Soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies? Anyone remember that alternate universe he destroyed in Turn Left?
*** Technically, it was Donna who destroyed that universe by killing herself. Plus, the Reality Bomb was stopped before detonation, therefore, the only destroyed universe was destroyed because of Donna.
*** The universe was already fading before Donna killed herself, so Davros would still have gotten quite a lot of galaxies
* '''...Zagreus.'''
** RuleOfCool. What can I say, I really want to see Moffat tackle that plotline.
* '''...The nightmare child or one of the other players in the time war'''
** The time war did some major damage, possibly destroying a billion galaxies(or one galaxy at a billion points in time). Since the Daleks are already present there, it's not them. It is possibly trying to erase the time war from time so it can escape.
* '''...The Doctor.'''
** Or that alternate timeline version of him that everyone is convinced is out there, or future version of him that's another nod to the Valeyard, and just a future version of him that's not evil, but it was the only way his enemies could finally whoop him.
** The quote from the Next Time trailer is an incredibly apt description of the Doctor:
--->''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.''
** Every ''Series/DoctorWho'' villain in the known universe would '''absolutely''' show up if they know that someone already had the Doctor locked up in a cage.
** It explains how River could kill the greatest man she'd ever known -- a hero to millions -- and still be ''relatively'' flippant about it: she killed "the Doctor", but not THE Doctor, and got locked up by people who didn't realise the difference.
** This one's confirmed...[[FromACertainPointOfView in a certain sense.]]
* '''...The Black Guardian.'''
** Stolen from elsewhere on this page.
* '''...Cthulhu.'''
** Hey, someone had to say it!
*** The Doctor was imprisoned in the Pandorica... Perhaps the Doctor is Cthulu and Cthulu is the most benevolent Old One?
* '''...Chuck Norris.'''
** Now """THAT'S""" someone to be scared of!
*** Chuck Norris wouldn't let a silly little thing like the Pandorica detain him.
*** Hence why he's breaking out. From his perspective, it only held him for like half a second.
* '''...Rory.'''
** He somehow survived, and is ''pissed'' at the Doctor for leaving him behind.
* '''The Void itself'''
** Remember the thing the daleks and Cyberman were sucked into? It'll be back. And EATING THE UNIVERSE. It'll be a convient way to bring back the OTHER Doctor and the daleks and cybermen in them as well
* '''Everyone and everything the Cracks have consumed'''
** Omniversal ResetButton perhaps?

'''They were ALL {{Jossed}} by the episode.''' What was in the Pandorica? Nothing. It's an empty cage. But once it's open, the [[VillainTeamUp epic alliance of villains]] ''trap the Doctor inside'' and then close it up again. (so those who guessed that it'd be the Doctor were ''almost'' right)

[[WMG: The Dreamlord is driving the Tardis]]
Why? No clue. But perhaps with The Doctor stuck in the Pandorica, he'd be able to escape. Or, it's Jenny. or Jenny will come back and save him?

[[WMG: How they escape]]
After the end of ''The Pandorica Opens.''
* River: Vortex manipulator.
** Confirmed, but the Doctor himself rescues her with it.
* The Doctor: Auton!Rory lets him out (the Doctor says it's easy to open from the outside).
** The rumors that there is a second Doctor are true. He will let himself out.
*** It's both, actually. A future Doctor hands his sonic to Rory.
* Amy: DisneyDeath?
** No. She's really dead, but [[OnlyMostlyDead Only Mostly]]. The Pandorica's puts her in stasis before she receives a living DNA sample from her younger starless-timeline self.

[[WMG: The Pandorica Opens during Amy's time]]
The idea that it's during Roman times is just part of the KansasCityShuffle. That's why Stonehenge looks old, when it didn't get that way until later. What evidence do we have that it's the past?
** The Stonehenge was old even in the Roman times; it's the oldest known structure in the area, as old as the pyramids of Egypt (which too are a millennia older than the Roman Empire).
*** For the purpose of this WMG, we're subscribing to the popular theory that Stonehenge was still a complete circle in Roman times, that was later sacked and then partially restored.
*** From where?
* The space-time coordinates Vincent painted: the BigBad is controlling when time-travelers end up, so River and the TARDIS could've been manipulated.
* The Romans: fake.
* The absence of modern-day people: The villains killed them all (and shot down any planes).

* Jossed. The Doctor states it's 102 AD by looking at his timey watch, and Rory says on several occasions he waits for centuries to reunite with Amy in 1996. Did the villains (oh, wait, WHAT villains?) manipulate the museum exhibits about the Lone Centurion too? Did they create a fake Blitz to bury Rory in? And I don't see how co-ordinates on a PAINTING can mess up the Doctor's sense of history.

* The Romans ARE fake, however. They're Autons.

[[WMG: The TARDIS fragment was fake]]
Why not? Everything else was.
* Wha?

[[WMG:Little!Amy's "dream" of the Doctor coming back for her wasn't, and this is the cause of the cracks]]
The Doctor, possibly at some point in his own personal future, goes back to little!Amy out of guilt or a desire to "rewrite" time so that he didn't actually disappear for twelve/fourteen years. He took her on marvelous adventures in a timeline parallel to the one we're watching for fourteen-ish years. The two of them ended up on the Byzantium - causing a paradox which caused the cracks in time, as per the rest of the theories on this page - and got separated while fighting/running from the Angels. Tweed!Doctor is this alternate-timeline Doctor who mistook "our" Amy for "his" Amy - the one he's been traveling with. He told her something when she was seven, possibly along the lines "I will always come back" or "I will always be here for you" that alternate!Amy would have immediately understood, but Amy Prime has no hope of getting.
** The two Doctors, two Amys ending is foreshadowed by Amy having a different name when the Doctor sees her again. There is an Amelia Pond, traveling with the other!Eleven and an Amy Pond, who we have been following.

[[WMG:Alternately, whatever Tweed!Doctor told her when she was seven was eaten by a crack]]
And that's why it's so crucial that she remembers it, rather than him telling her. The same way he later tries to get her to remember Rory after his death and absorption into the crack.

[[WMG:Jack showed up for the finale again in Series 5.]]
Well, part of him.
* Please explain?
** I'm assuming the original writer meant that the hand we see from the unnamed handsome Time Agent was actually Jack's.

[[WMG: Amy never had an aunt and was raised by the Dreamlord.]]
There's alredy a theory that Amy's aunt was swallowed by a crack, but I don't believe she ever existed. In the first episode, seven year old Amy was all alone,at night, I don't recall ever seeing a trace that anyone else lived in the house. And when River goes to the house, it doesn't seem as though anyone was in it, plus she is never mentioned when the Daleks, Cybermen, etc talk about how they used Amy's memories to build a scenario. This is even stranger when you consider the other companions' parents:

Jackie Tyler became a recurring character.
Martha's father appeared several times, and her mother played an important part in the Harold Saxon plot arc.
Donna's mother also appeared a lot, and Wilfred got given a starring role in ''The End of Time''.

But we never see evidence of Amy's aunt.

On to the second part of the theory.

So far, every previous episode of the series which didn't either mention or show cracks (not including the first parts of two parters) has contributed a character to the final. A lot of them don't even do anything important; really, what purpose does Queen Elizabeth from ''The Beast Below'' serve? She's just there. And the crack at the end of ''The Lodger'' didn't do anything other than make the viewer worry. Basically, every episode has a connection to ''The Pandorica Opens''.

Except for ''Amy's Choice''. And I'm not sure I buy the story of the Dreamlord being the Doctor. I think he was the one piloting the Tardis with River inside.

And these two link together like this; he tricked Amy's mind into believing that she had an aunt, when she didn't. He never actually appeared to her, he just made sure she was able to stay alive until the Doctor came. Somehow, and for some reason, he was using her to lure the Doctor.

I'm not going to push this as a theory, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that that half of Amy's house doesn't exist; all we ever see is the passage, her bedroom and the kitchen. Everything else is just empty rooms, as the Doctor pointed out.
* There's even [[http://i754.photobucket.com/albums/xx181/DarkOverlordKtar/Doctor%20Who/Picture1.png this stairway going to... the ceiling]]. [[SarcasmMode Not weird and suspicious ''at all''.]]
** What the Heck!? How come I never noticed that before? It's like there's a 'real' perception filter around that door...
** Obviously, we were all distracted by a hot redhead in a police outfit...
** Trap door to the attic. Though I got to agree, we should have noticed that. Now we need to get a boombox and a recoding of a Dalek yelling "Explain" (because I really, really like it), take that picture, print it up, corner Stephen and play the recording while showing him the picture to confirm it.
* Wasn't Amy's aunt seen in the beginning of "The Big Bang", when Amy is 7? She's the one who talks about "star cults".

[[WMG: Amy is dreaming in reality.]]
Another dreamlord theory.

Amy is asleep, and has been asleep for the entire series. She may still be a little girl who only dreamed she grew up.

However, she is not having a regular dream, rather the dreamlord is controlling it. The village where she lives, the Doctor, Rory, and everything and everyone else, are real. The dreamlord possibly has more power than he seemed to, and can influence people in the village's thinking. Amy's house isn't really there, or it's just old and abandoned, hence the empty rooms. The Amy everyone sees is simply the dream version of her. That's why her life "makes no sense": everything personal about it is a dream.

[[WMG: The Dreamlord is behind everything.]]
At the end of Amy's Choice, we see the Dreamlord in the Tardis Console. Somehow when the Doctor exploded the Tardis in the Dreamworld the Dreamlord got trapped in the Tardis in the real world. The cracks are actually openings into the Dreamworld that the Dreamlord managed to place across the Universe. When the Tardis explodes the entire universe will be sucked into the Dreamworld the same way The Doctor, Rory and Amy were able to escape the Dreamworld by exploding the Tardis. Once this happens, seeing as the entire universe is inside the Dreamworld, the Dreamlord can manipulate the universe any way he pleases.

[[WMG: Prisoner Zero is behind everything.]]
Given Moff's love of the TimeyWimeyBall and the StableTimeLoop, this could be the event explains why he was a prisoner in the first place.. People have been created from Amy's memories, just as Zero disguised himself using them in the season opener. The Davros-like voice saying "Silence will fall"? He's using the Doctor's memories too. He makes the link while people are asleep, and in "Amy's Choice" all three characters were asleep for a long enough time.
* It's been hinted that he's a member of the Silence. And since he's Prisoner ''Zero'', that could mean he's either the first prisoner the Atraxi caught, OR he's the leader.

[[WMG: Human!Ten is behind everything.]]
Rose dumped him, because adventuring with the Doctor is quite different than settling down with him. He got to ''Waters of Mars''-level of madness, but had the ambition of a human instead of the wisdom of a Time Lord. Ten punched the first crack to this universe and began his quest to rip the Time Vortex apart and ascend to godhood. (He didn't see the gap year finale, but since he has the Doctor's memories from the end of the Time War, he knows of the possibility.)
Further evidence:
* The whole scheme is centered on Amy, and the Doctor's greatest weakness (and strength) is always his companion.
* The Doctor speculates in the Dream Lord episode about there being only one person who hates him so much, and is implied that that's the Doctor himself. Now, Human!Ten * is* the Doctor, (has his memories) additionally he was screwed over by the the Doctor. (stranded in a human body, with no TARDIS) Add Ten's emotional instability in late gap year to the mix, and you have the ultimate OmnicidalManiac.
* Someone was trying to build a TARDIS...
* He sends his greatest enemies on a wild goose chase after the real Doctor while he enacts the last phase of his plan.
* His voice is disembodied because he transmits it through the cracks.
* He can be the "good man, a hero to many" who gets killed by River.
** I'm not going to rule out the theory River killed the Doctor (or his clone), but she was already in jail at the beginning of the episode. It could have been for something else, I guess.
* In ''* Silence* in the Library'', Ten doesn't trust River, also mentions the possibility of River taking the screwdriver from his dead body. Maybe she did...

[[WMG: The Doctor earns his title as a Lonely God]]
Silence fell. The TARDIS, Galaxies and Stars exploded. Everything is over. Only the Pandorica and the Doctor still exist, because... well, I have no idea. But now there is a lonely being which remembers all reality. And maybe the Doctor remembers desperatly enough, so that his memories held the Nothingness at bay. And a part of his memory is running around and will save the world from the BigBad. There we have our second Doctor. But now he can't never open the Pandorica or he will release his other self, which is now the cornerstone of all reality. The Doctor in the Pandorica is sealed forever. A truly lonely god.
* No chance, that it happens like that. I just wanted to add it, because I like the part about the Lonely God.

[[WMG: The TARDIS is evil]]
Remember the psychic pollen? The stuff that draws out your darkest side, created the Dream Lord, all that? Got into the TARDIS's rotors? Oh, yeah, and remember that the TARDIS is ''sentient''? The TARDIS is currently under the influence of its evil side, its equivalent of the Dream Lord. When it started behaving weirdly, taking River Song to the wrong time, locking her in, and then exploding in a cataclysmic universe-destroying explosion--nobody was messing with it. ''It did all that itself.'' ForTheEvulz.
** Holy crap, this is brilliant! It makes so much sense!
** It actually does, I agree. Matt Smith apparently said in one panel that the BigBad of the season was in the first episode "but not in a conventional way," the TARDIS has certainly taken some abuse from the Doctor over the years (intentional or not, that could cause some bitterness), and... the TARDIS never died in the 2015 Leadworth dream. It could still be dreaming while its dark side takes over.
*** If the TARDIS is evil, why did BBC America re-air an episode seemingly designed to repair mental imbalance in its audience? I'd say the TARDIS is approximately half-evil, half-good.
*** First off, what? Second off, did he say "the first episode", or "The Eleventh Hour". Because, as you all seem to forget (I blame the cracks in time) 11's first episode WASN'T The Eleventh Hour, it was The End of Time. Ten regenerated in that episode, and we saw 11 for the first time. Taking that interpretation of his words, it opens up the Big Bad List to every Time Lord (everyone from the Meddling Monk to The Master to The Rani), Handy (10 and Handy are both 10, so that could be the meaning of "not in the conventional way), Captain Jack Harkness (the man REALLY wants to die, I wonder what happens when an immortal fixed point in time actually finds a way, going by the last few times someone messed with a fixed point, it can't be healthy for anything), The Dreamlord (The Dreamlord is The Doctor, The Doctor was in both The End of Time and The Eleventh Hour, this is the most likely), The Valeyard, who may be the Dreamlord, time itself (because, well, what else hasn't tried to kill the Doctor yet?) or even Donna.

[[WMG: Mr. Pond is the season villain]]
The cast page for The Big Bang has been posted on the other wiki, and it looks rather... domestic. The only non-mundane things are the Doctor (duh), River Song (hardly indicative of much), and a "stone Dalek", which is handled by their usual Dalek prop handler, and seems to not even have a speaking role, though we don't know that for sure. Given the events of The Pandorica Opens, this seems rather odd.

But their is one incongruity. Mr. Pond is played by a "Helco Johnston". A quick Google search, as well as one of IMDB reveals no such person. Now, conceivably, they hired a really obscure actor, who doesn't even show up on Google. But I'd call that unlikely, especially with a name as unusual as Helco. This is clearly a pseudonym, and possibly an anagram, though for what I have no idea. But there's clearly something to conceal.

I'm guessing that Mr. Pond is a character we've seen before. If so, he's probably not a hero. I can't think of any heroic character whose identity they wish to conceal, which leaves villains. They'd only go to these lengths if it was someone important, so I'm guessing he's the main villain. I'm not just basing this on meta evidence. Amy says that she doesn't have parents. What does that even mean? And now he turns up. For the finale. I'd guess that he's going to play a major role, and not as a protagonist.

If anyone can crack the anagram or whatever it is for Helco Johnston, I'd be quite appreciative.

* "CLOTHES ON JOHN"? ...so Captain Jack is gonna turn up and '''not''' take his pants off?
** Yes. The new Whoniverse is a Mirror Universe. In the Series 5 Whoniverse, Eleven was biologically programmed to seduce people like Rory Pond or Jack Harkness. In the Series Shag Whoniverse, Jack Harkness is the only person who can refuse to have sex with Eleven, and Eleven is the only person who can refuse to have sex with Rory.
* CHEST JOHN LO NO -- Captain Jack will appear and have a shirtless scene, but not a pantless scene?

** OK. The big name I get out of it is Elton John; that leaves you with COSH, which doesn't make any particularly good words, which is unfortunate. You can also get STONE (which seems to link with the stone Dalek that's been seen) and that leaves you with LOCH JOHN. So god knows what's going on.
*** [[Series/{{Lost}} JOHN LOCH]]?
*** For the record, cosh is a perfectly fine word itself, meaning, among other things, to knock someone unconscious with a blunt instrument. So clearly the universe will be saved by Amy knocking Elton John's character out with a cricket bat. Presumably to stop him [[JustBugsMe/DoctorWho2005Series chasing the Doctor with a hatchet]] while singing ''Anthem''.
* CHLOE JOHNSTON - doesn't have the hugest filmography, but at least she shows up on Website/IMDb. As for MR. Pond, maybe he is a hermaprodite.. or a shapeshifter.. and a monkey-robot-pirate-ninja as well.
* CELT HO JOHNSON - a slutty druid, fits well with the Stonehenge.
** '''Jossed''', and Amy's dad is played by [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1546076/ ''Halcro'' Johnston]], and he has been in some minor parts.
** Eh, it was a reasonable theory. Wikipedia was wrong, so it was based on incorrect information, but I feel my conclusions were reasonable given the available information.
*** You were almost correct actually! You just got the wrong Mr. Pond! The mid-series cliffhanger involves Rory Pond snogging Eleven against the wall of the TARDIS. His reason? He thinks that he and Eleven need to move past their internalized homophobia. Technically, Eleven has already moved past this mentally, but he has not accepted Rory's existence emotionally. The Whoniverse is not fixed. It is a Pete's World with all the sadness dumped into the Series 5 Whoniverse. Even after the "Flesh and Stone" kiss, the Eleventh Doctor felt comfortable in his role. For Eleven, the "Flesh and Stone" snog was a localized Time Loop and out-of-body experience, so Eleven had as much time as he wanted to examine the situation. He determined that there was a 50% chance of Amy's plotline having a happy ending, and decided that 50% was acceptable odds. Eleven may have been a lot more scared of the snog with Rory (which I like to call the "Stone and Flesh" cliffhanger). This would explain why it was uncertain for a few weeks in October of 2010 whether or not the Eleventh Doctor would reprise his role in Series Seven. Note that Eleven was a lot more committed to portraying the second half of Series 5. Luckily he's decided to portray Series Seven despite the fact that it climaxes with his worst nightmare.
*** Mid-series cliffhanger nonsense Jossed.
*** As of "The Wedding of River Song" we've got ''another'' Mr. Pond, who has far more potential for villainy than the other two...

[[WMG: Amy is really a dream construct, to trap the Doctor.]]

* The Pandorica was based on her mind, and she seems to fit perfectly for what the Doctor needed when he found her: someone to constantly take his mind off of his troubles.
* Plastic!Rory was a fake, who believed he was real, so it's not out of the question.
* Planted by the Daleks or one of their 'allies'(they're also going to turn on their so-called alliance).

[[WMG: Mr. Pond is the Dream Lord.]]
Helco Johnson is either an obcusre actor or is concealing who will really play him. Helco Johnson's letters form Jones. Who played the Dream Lord. Toby Jones. Also, notice how Mr.Pond has no first name given, and no first name like the other cast.
* Wouldn't that make the Doctor Amy's father? If so, perhaps Amy will have a child named Susan later?
* Jossed. Nope, they're clearly different actors. No aliases like Anthony Ainley.

[[WMG: Mr. Pond is Darth Vader...]]
...and he will get a LukeIAmYourFather moment with Amy. (Who is apparently a regenerated and unknowing Princess Leia) Maybe we get to see Karen Gillan in a metal bikini.
* Also, Rory might be Luke, which will boost the squick-factor of their relationship to the skies.
* Note that the cracks are affecting EVERY universe, even the SW one. These three character fell through a crack into the Whoniverse and forgot who they were.
* The first crack was created when the Emperor hit the reactor. Good news for the Endor Holocaust Theory.
* Jossed. Amy recognises her father in "The Big Bang" right away.

[[WMG: Rory always was a Auton]]
Bit of the TimeyWimeyBall here. The trauma of killing Amy causes Auton!Rory's memory to partially short out, forgetting that he killed her. He lives the next 2000 years, then assumes his identity as Rory in Leadsworth and asks Amy to marry him, joins the Doctor again only to be killed and erased again- and then to copied again by the Alliance. This explains why he remembers being killed. Rory no doubt visited Amy's house often and the Alliance would have copied his memories too. This also explains why his hospital badge said 1990- as an Auton Rory doesn't age and he could have been in the hospital that long. He'd likely get a lot of comments about how good he looks for his age though....
* In "Eleventh Hour", Rory mentions how Amy asked him to dress up as the Doctor when they were kids. Now, a 20-ish guy playing with young Amelia is a bit weird...
** The nice Daleks saw Amelia playing with her [[{{Franchise/Barbie}} Ken doll]] and thought they could do [[BarbieDollAnatomy "better"]]...

[[WMG:Dream Lord aka Valeyard is now an independent entity like the 4th/5th doctors Watcher]].
From the Angel episode: "What happens when dreams no longer need their dreamers?"
The Dreamlord is of course a Dream of the Doctors'. + Thematic element of all the Romans and such being
a dream of Amy's (whatever she might be).Not sure what this has to do with the lack of ducks in the pond though.Naturally,the Dreamlord (aka Valeyard) aka The Doctor is what's driving the TARDIS at the end of "Pandorica Opens." PS:The reset button will be everybody just...[[AllJustADream waking]] up.

[[WMG: The black TARDIS or its creators will still show up for the finale.]]
Every episode in the season has thusfar had an influence on the finale within the main plot of the story.
* the eleventh hour set up the basic premise, introduced Amy and Rory, whose interaction was vital in the finale
* the beast below gave us elizabeth X, who appeared in the first part
* victory of the daleks gave us churchill and the new daleks, both making appearances in the finale
* The time of Angels and Flesh and stone gave us foreshadowing of the finale and the effect of the cracks in time and space, which shows that Rory should not have been able to survive.
* The vampires of Venice and Amy's choice both had the underlying story of connecting Rory and Amy again and to set up the adventures of Rory with the doctor.
* The hungry earth and cold blood gave us Homo Reptillius and the death of Rory
* Vincent and the Doctor gave us the painting that led to River breaking out of prison
* And then came The Lodger. The only influence this episode had on the finale was Amy finding the engagement ring, something that happened in a single scene and had no influence on the rest of the plot. This is the only episode in the season where the main plot did not work towards the finale. Maybe it has yet to show up.
** The lodger had part of a house being a tardis, and a staircase into nowhere (although IMO [[http://i754.photobucket.com/albums/xx181/DarkOverlordKtar/Doctor%20Who/Picture1.png the one in amy's house]] looks like there ''is'' another floor there - you can see the two ceilings aren't the same height)
** Given that in ''The Pandorica Opens'' the Doctor said that Amy's house was too big and had too many rooms, and that Creator/StevenMoffat has said that the BigBad is in the first episode, but not the way you'd expect, I'm guessing that Amy's House is the BigBad.
*** look at her front door. The window pattern makes it look ''very much'' like a police box
*** So the big bad is a [[color:red: minotaur]] and her [[color:blue: house]] is ''the'' [[Literature/HouseOfLeaves house]]?

* Nope, Jossed. However,[[spoiler: the black TARDIS does not appear again until the series 6 premiere.]]

[[WMG: When the Doctor Rebooted the Universe, he brought back Gallifrey and the Time Lords]]
Agreed. Although there's an audio drama that implies the Doctor turned human at some point, and this troper can see several humans that look like Time Lords. Perhaps Time Lords are supposed to be our higher selves (with the exception of imagination, which is supposed to be human). Modern humans who look like Time Lords when one makes eye-contact with them are probably the most Time Lord humans can get.
* {{Jossed}}. All the Time Lords are still dead, as confirmed by "The Doctor's Wife".

[[WMG: We haven't seen the last of Dr. Ramsden.]]
She won't necesarilly be plot relevent, besides as a side character to Rory, but did anyone else find it strange that Prisoner Zero claimed to have killed her and the nurses, and yet there were no bodies in the ward? No one even commented on it when barracading themselves in there. Add in that Zero has shown a tendancy to avoid unnecessary bloodshed, the Doctor even trying to bargain with it early on, and it really seems the claims to be less then reliable.

[[WMG: The cracks in time will re-write the events of the Time-war]]
Hence reviving the Time Lords. It's possible. After all, we already know, according to the Doctor, that time is not as linear as all that. It is possible that the cracks could erase certain events that would have led up to the war being time-locked, but have still allowed for the doctor to go on all his current adventures.
* Jossed. The Time Lords are still lost as of "The Doctor's Wife".

[[WMG: The old lady in 'The Eleventh Hour' is Amy, locked in the past by a Weeping Angel.]]
Moffat has said that a scene in Eleven's first episode reveals the fate of Amy Pond. (I'm paraphrasing.) In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene, the old woman that lives with Jeff immediately recognizes the Doctor and calls him the Raggedy Man. Eleven has never seen her before in his life. Despite the fact that the Doctor's future was eaten (along with Martha's) and he was sent to the 1960s, and he was still able to use the TARDIS, there will be some timey-wimey reason that Amy will be locked in the past, and unable to return home. She moves to Leadworth, and once again becomes the girl who waits.
** This troper just had a Funny Aneurysm. Well played.
* Wait, that can't be right. Jeff's grandma says she knows the Raggedy Doctor from Amy's childhood drawings; there's no indication that she knows him from anywhere else.
** River has already told Amy that she often had to lie (pretend not to recognize Amy, pretend to be sad at the Doctor's death, etc.). Amy could have been doing the same thing. Also, River and the Old Woman (Mrs. Angelo - Angelo was also the name of a cleric in The Time of Angels, the first time Amy meets River) in 11th Hour seem to own the same brooch.

[[WMG: The TARDIS is behind the cracks in time... only it's not the TARDIS.]]
Now stick with me: In The Eleventh Hour, the TARDIS crash landed in Amelia Pond's backyard. The Doctor and Amelia talk, open the crack, close it, and the Cloister bell rings. Now, when the cloister bell rings, it is not because its about to fly away, but because it was being attacked. By what, you ask? By the faux-TARDIS from the Lodger, which took its place. To recap The Lodger; Someone was trying to build a TARDIS, but there were two things wrong with it; 1: The TARDIS needed a pilot, and B: ... No, 2: TARDI are GROWN, not built.

Once the TARDIS in The Lodger got a taste of the power it could have working with/for The Doctor, it needed more, and rather than give up The Doctor because of ''ThePowerOfLove'', it actually went back in time, and replaced the real TARDIS while The Doctor was talking to Amelia.

To prove this point, if you would remember, at the beginning of the episode The Lodger, The Doctor is inexplicably thrown out of the TARDIS by a burst of air, which one would assume was because of the time loops. But, if you believe this theory, you could say that it was actually an action done purposely by the faux-TARDIS to get The Doctor to meet it's past self, so it could go back in time to replace the true TARDIS...

This theory, while far out, explains why both Prisoner Zero in The Eleventh Hour, and Angel Bob in the Weeping Angel two parter both said "The Doctor <in the TARDIS> doesn't know what's going on." Now, as a throwaway line, that doesn't seem like much, but they are actually telling The Doctor, "Helloo! You are IN the problem!"
** Additionally, The Moff has said that the culprit behind the cracks has showed up in The Eleventh Hour, although not obviously. How much more do we need?
** And in the preview for Series 6, there are shots of the TARDIS from The Lodger. (while the way it looks is constant with The Lodger, and not how it looks through the rest of the series, it may be explained.)
** And there is talk that Craig will be returning for Series 6.
** Jossed as of season six. Although, it's now even spookier given how the Silence remained secret. They ''were'' in The Eleventh Hour, but you've forgotten you saw them, kinda like the way the angels move.

[[WMG: Amy Pond is a future Doctor who's been under the Chameleon Arch.]]
For a large part of The Beast Below, Amy's behavior bears a striking resemblance to the way The Doctor acts when he's exploring. Then, in the voting booth, the machine declares that she is 1306 years old. The episode in set in the 29th century, so even if it's 2899, that would still put her birthdate as 1593. At the end, she refers to a creatur that is very kind, very old and the last of its kind being unable to ignore a child crying. She explains that she's seen this from her interaction with the Doctor, but what if it's from personal experience?
* Except that it was only the 29th century when Earth was roasted. It's been implied that Liz X has been reigning for close to 300 years, and she's the one who set up the whole system. Ergo, The Beast Below doesn't take place in the 29th century but the 32nd.
** But that still makes her birthdate to be 1893. Basically, it's either this or that computer can't do a simple calculation.
** We're never told if Liz X actually took command before the solar flares struck Earth. If Amy was born in 1989, then the age given in The Beast Below would place the year as 3295, which is three centuries after the 29th century.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord was real]]
See [[http://londonparticulars.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/who-cares/ here]] for details. Summary: the Doctor was wrong when he said the Dreamlord wasn't real and so when he prepared to blow the TARDIS up, it actually did explode, causing the cracks in reality and TARDIS shrapnel. Everything that happened since then has been an alternative reality.
* Jossed. The explosion was in Leadworth, 2010, not in orbit around a cold star.

Not insultingly so, mind you, since it's important to remember that Steven Moffat does respect the guy, but ''still''. Consider:
* The Doctor's known Amy since she was little, which actually gives her an understandable reason to feel a connection to the Doctor beyond "Hot Guy With The Ultimate Sports Car." Additionally, ''everyone'' who doesn't realize the Doctor actually exists treats this attitude as an obsession bordering on genuine insanity, a reaction strikingly absent from Rose's unsettlingly arrogant clinginess.
** Probably not, given that Moffat seems to like Rose a lot, some "clingy" jokes aside.
* The "Cracks in Time" MythArc has the rather convenient side effect of completely erasing the fannish silliness that was ''The Stolen Earth/Journey's End'' and the historically incompatible ending to ''The Next Doctor''.
* Not only are the old-style Daleks killed off -- violently -- the new ones promptly ''run away'' and are only seen sparingly afterward, in contrast to Davies' overuse of them.
** That's...not what happened. At best, that's a white lie. "Running away" sounds like a loss.
* Shipping is punted out the window and then shot at, with lasers. The Doctor reacts with abject horror to Amy's come-ons (which, on her part, are pretty poorly thought out), doesn't appreciate Amy's fangirlish insistence that he and River will eventually get married, and generally takes any chance he can get to tactfully imply that this incarnation doesn't find InterspeciesRomance appealing in the slightest. [[MarriedToTheJob He does enjoy flirting with]] [[CargoShip The TARDIS]], though.
** It was more blatant in series 6, but River was hardly subtle in her implications either. Not to mention, when Amy asked River if it was the Doctor, she responded ambiguously, but hinted towards the postiive.
** Then there's ''A Christmas Carol'', in which, as though waking up in the middle of a terrible fanfiction, the Doctor finds himself suddenly and inexplicably paired up with MarilynMonroe. He does his best to escape the situation as quickly as possible.
** And then he apparently marries her out of spite when his companions weren't paying enough attention.
*** What has that got to do with Russell? Even tangentially? Or the production series ''5''? It's not even the A-plot either.
* The finale, which first parodies Davies' writing style by having the Doctor [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny fight everyone, ever]], then deconstructs it by summarily forgetting about them and centering the actual antagonistic tension around exactly one Dalek and confining everything to a couple rooms in one building, while a NegativeSpaceWedgie makes even the setting increasingly minimalist. The lesson being, "Epic" doesn't have to mean "Big".

[[WMG: The old lady in 'The Eleventh Hour' is Amy, locked in the past by a Weeping Angel.]]
Moffat has said that a scene in Eleven's first episode reveals the fate of Amy Pond. (I'm paraphrasing.) In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene, the old woman that lives with Jeff immediately recognizes the Doctor and calls him the Raggedy Man. Eleven has never seen her before in his life. Despite the fact that the Doctor's future was eaten (along with Martha's) and he was sent to the 1960s, and he was still able to use the TARDIS, there will be some timey-wimey reason that Amy will be locked in the past, and unable to return home. She moves to Leadworth, and once again becomes the girl who waits.
** This troper just had a Funny Aneurysm. Well played.
* Wait, that can't be right. Jeff's grandma says she knows the Raggedy Doctor from Amy's childhood drawings; there's no indication that she knows him from anywhere else.
** River has already told Amy that she often had to lie (pretend not to recognize Amy, pretend to be sad at the Doctor's death, etc.). Amy could have been doing the same thing.

[[WMG: The foods that eleven tried after regenerating weren't random.]]
* He first tried apples, because ten liked them. But that wasn't right. Then he tried yoghurt and bacon, and after that, beans, before setteling on custard and fish fingers. Consider this: both yoghurt and custard are diary products, and both bacon and fish fingers are meat (or, at least, dead animal) fried in butter or oil. (I don't know what amy used.) I don't know if this is important, but it is interesting that eleven knew in wich direction he had to search. I can't explain the beans in tomato sauce, though.

Moffat has said I've seen it asked at least once what, if anything, Prisoner Zero is hanging from. Given it's [[StarfishAliens Starfishness]], if not outright EldritchAbomination, the tail goes on forever. It's not really hanging from anything, it just hangs. If you were to follow it's tail, it would go on into space, unless you blinked or looked away, even for a fraction of a second, in which case it would disappear, since the tail only seems that a scene in Eleven's first episode reveals long when observed. This could probably go on the fate of Amy Pond. (I'm paraphrasing.) In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene, the old woman that lives with Jeff immediately recognizes the Doctor and calls him the Raggedy Man. Eleven has never seen her before in his life.

* It all adds up to Leadworth being held unnaturally in stasis--out of Time, if you will.
* Leadworth seems to be culturally frozen in the year 1996, despite having the technology of 2010. This may be because Leadworth is the closest thing Eleven has to an ideal permanent residence (The neighborhoods of Craig and Vincent are likely second-best). Eleven has a love/hate relationship with all of the places in which he lives, especially the TARDIS herself. His hate for the TARDIS' destinations manifests itself as Time Cracks that suck the life, passion, happiness, and existence out of every place he goes. The technology of these places remains modern, because Eleven has no problem with the strength of his neocortex (other than the fact that his amygdala keeps interfering with its functioning).

[[WMG: One of this series' themes is provoking the Doctor to anger]]
So far, in every episode there has been an attempt, either intentional or not, to provoke the Doctor and make him angry- perhaps he will truly crack in the finale? (pure coincidence that the more blatant theme is 'cracks')
* In "The Eleventh Hour", Prisoner Zero taunts the Doctor- 'the Doctor in the TARDIS doesn't know'
* In "The Beast Below", the Doctor is unintentionally (noone knew who the Doctor was, therefore had no need to provoke him) angered to the point of willingly killing an innocent creature (tbh, this episode could do with some expansion on the theory)
* In "Victory of the Daleks", the Doctor is successfully and definitely intentionally provoked by the Daleks until he angrily states 'I am the Doctor, and you are the Daleks!', triggering the progenitor device.
* In "The Time of Angels", it is explicitly stated that the Angels are attempting to provoke the Doctor to make him angry, though it doesn't work.

[[WMG: Prisoner Zero gave Amy brain damage]]
There is no way having an evil alien developing a mental link with you when you were a child and keeping it until you were an adult would not negatively affect the way your brain developed.

[[WMG: Amy gave The Doctor brain damage]]
There is no way a Scottish redhead hitting you on the head with a cricket bat when you are still in the first 24 hours of your regeneration would not negatively affect the way your brain developed.
* However, since he ''was'' in his first twenty-four-hours of regeneration, [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion any damage done to him would have healed]].

[[WMG: Amy pond is an Autassassinophile]]

Also know as danger fetishist. So far, in the two situations where she has been terrified and very nearly killed (Vampires of Venice and Flesh & Stone) she has responded by enthusiastically getting off with the nearest bloke. I can't be the only one thinking this.

[[WMG:Since the events of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]] have been seemingly erased, some of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]] must have been as well.]]
Since Amy cannot remember the Daleks stealing the Earth despite it having been a completely worldwide event that was unescapable, then everyone else (except the Doctor) probably also doesn't remember. Besides the great continuity issues this raises (Donna, the 10th Doctor's clone, Davros, etc.), since Wilfred clearly remembered what happened before during "The End of Time" this means that whatever happened to cause the erasures must have started after that. This means that part or nearly all of that episode may have also been wiped from existence, which probably doesn't mean good things to come for the Doctor, especially if the [[FanNickname Dalek Rangers]] are involved.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord was not in control]]
The Doctors mind was in control of most of the situation most of the time. There are hints it's his dream, such as him being able to complete the sentences of the Ecnodeen. The Doctor is play acting...he's aware of what is going on and manipulating events so that Amy is forced to make this choice. He creates a safe situation where Amy can feel how much Rory means to her. Only one situation comes out as not making sense if the Doctor were in complete control, which would be when the Ecnodeen corner him when he's alone at the butcher shop. Perhaps the Dream Lord and Ecnodeen had some free will and actually cornered him, and he needed to stay in the dream for it to keep existing. Even the last shot at the end makes sense, he sees his dark side in the deeds he has committed to push Amy to make her choice.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord was also feeding off Amy]]
* Because if he was only after the Doctor, he wouldn't have spent so much time and energy messing with Amy's head. Rory was really the only one who had so little dark in him that the best the Dream Lord could get out of him was Englands dullest village.

[[WMG: The Dream Lord was really concentrating on Amy, not the Doctor]]
* As the Dream Lord kept saying, it was all Amy's choice, he just taunted the Doctor to distract him from that fact.

[[WMG: Series 5 was written to parallel Leonard Cohen's ''[[http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/leonardcohen/anthem.html Anthem]]'']]

* Victory of the Daleks: ''Ah the wars they will be fought again'' (Both WWII and the Time War).
* The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone: ''While the killers in high places say their prayers out loud''
* The Vampires of Venice: ''But they've summoned, they've summoned up a thundercloud and they're going to hear from me. ''
* Amy's Choice: ''The birds they sang at the break of day. "Start again," I heard them say. Don't dwell on what has passed away or what is yet to be.''
* Arc: ''Ring the bells that still can ring/Forget your perfect offering/There is a crack in everything/That's how the light gets in. ''
* Also the theme - ''"there is no drum"'' (The theme song is missing the old backbeat)

[[WMG: The future Amy and Rory Team TARDIS saw will play an important role in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E9ColdBlood Cold Blood]]]]
Why point them out? Why show Amy and Rory (and subsequently us) them if they aren't important. And yeah, the Doctor may say NeverTheSelvesShallMeet but surely he remembers that that actually ''saves the day'' in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E3MawdrynUndead Mawdryn Undead]]. I think that whole scene was to set up a ChekhovsGun.
* Technically confirmed. Well, it's the absence of the 2020 Rory that's important.

[[WMG: The Doctor is Merlin and River is the Lady of the Lake]]
The Doctor like Merlin seems to age backwards, successive regenerations tend to make him younger, he's pretty much magic, and he often disappears for considerable periods of time.

The Lady of the Lake, learned magic from Merlin, who then lusted after her, and eventually she used her magic to entomb Merlin in a tree or under a Stone. Merlin did not try to counter this. River, has a water themed name, likely learned about sonic screwdrivers and TARDIS piloting from the Doctor, and killed a very good man who was hero to many. As for lusted after, they do seem to have some sort of romantic relationship, what with they're very romantic dates to singing towers and picnics at Asgard.

The Pandorica is rumored to be, confirmed actually if you can trust the Doctor Who Wiki, Stonehenge. It is also mentioned on the wiki to be some type of prison (imprisoned under a stone get it). Rory is rumored to have been rewritten in time as a Roman Centurion. King Arthur is argued by some historians to have been a Celtic King who fought the Romans.

Now Merlin is said to have taken joy in deaths and final goodbyes because he lived backwards in time, so they were like first meetings for normal people. The Doctor first met River from his perspective when she died. Merlin also found first meetings and births tragic for similar reasons, so if River's first meeting of the Doctor from her perspective is the Pandorica, and she kills "the best man she ever knew" and there is sorrow in the first meeting.

Alternatives involve Pond as the Lady of the Lake.
* Wasn't it Nimue/Vivian that Merlin taught magic to, not the Lady of the Lake?
** I get my knowledge of Arthurian myth from TheOtherWiki but it claims that the characters were conflated in some sources.
* King Arthur, if he ever existed, came after the Roman occupation had ended, and fought against the Saxon invaders; that's as old as the story can possibly be stretched, certainly not to the Roman times.
* Depending on how much we can take from the original run, it was already established that the Doctor was Merlin -- or an alternate-dimension version of the Doctor was. That storyline was a bit confusing.

[[WMG: The Doctor makes things up to explain what he doesn't have a clue about]]
Back in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E5FleshAndStone Flesh and Stone]] the Doctor (metaphorically) threw three-year worth of continuity into the Crack when he said that the Angels can choose not to move when they think they're observed. [[MagicAIsMagicA Which goes against everything we know about them.]]

But look at what evidence he'd got. As far as the Doctor knows the Angels have a habit of turning into stones when the only witness around is not looking. Not exactly familiar with the FourthWall and the thousands of tropers behind it, he jumps to the best conclusion at hand. Sensible enough?

[[{{Foreshadowing}} Just wait for the next time the stakes rest on his educated guess.]][[note]]and given the way he laments at how others always know much more about [[ArcWords the Cracks]] than him in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E9ColdBlood Cold Blood]]...[[/note]]
* Support: In "Amy's Choice," Amy questions The Doctor on whether cold burning suns could actually exists. He's particularly flustered at the time and snaps at her: " I don't know! Why do people always think I know these things!?"
* Who says that Ten was right? As far as we can tell, everything he knows about the Angels in Blink he learned from a StableTimeLoop. There's no good reason that any non-essential knowledge [[OntologicalParadox Ontological Paradoxed]] into existence need be correct.

[[WMG: Themes of this Season]]

Looking over the episodes of this season, I've been noticing a few trends.
* Growing up/Evolving/Change- Amy grows up, Liz 10 doesn't, and the dream pensioner's aging rates are slowed down. The Dalek are reborn, the Angels are restored, the Saturnynes change humans into themselves. The Silurians stay exactly the same due to their hibernation. The emergancy hologram changes forms to suit it's needs. And, of course, Regeneration.
* Disguises/Masquerades- Prisoner Zero's disguises, the star whale deception, the Daleks pretending to be servants, the Angel pretending to be dormant. Vampires pretending to be aristocrats, two dream worlds, the hidden Silurians, the invisible Krafayis, the emergancy hologram and the second floor. Not to mention the Pandorica.
* Senses- The Doctor adjusting to new taste buds, his HD memory, Amy's "Notice Everything" moment, Amy being blinded, and having to feel her way through the forest, the vampires tasting they're victims blood, The Doctor feeling the oddity of the ground near the drilling project, etc.
* Bringing about your own end- Prisoner Zeros connection with Amy, the Star Whale's charity causing it to suffer, Bracewell's attempted suicide, the Angels feeding on the Ship's energy, Rosanna sending the girls after the doctor and commiting suicide, Amy and the Doctor's suicides, Rory's sacrifice, the emergancy hologram's desire for a pilot, and, of course, Vincent...
** All of these themes may be united by the following over-arching message: The world is filled with scary things, many of which are inside yourself. Ignoring the monsters (on the inside especially) does not make the monsters go away. It simply makes the problem worse. The Angels can kill you, but the Cracks can erase your existence. Addressing an issue and facing the consequences is better than avoiding the issue and letting it grow like a cancer.

[[WMG: The Doctor will stay stuck in the Pandorica for 2000 years and be released by a 7-year old Amelia Pond]]
This is how the "little girl" will save the universe. He will then tell Amelie the thing that he told Amy to remember in "Flesh and Stone".
* This actually seems pretty possible, considering Amelia appears to be in a museum of some sorts with the Pandorica. Although we don't know where or when this museum is. What came to mind was
-->'''River''': Two things always garunteed to show up in a museum, the homebox of a category 4 starliner, and sooner or later, [the Doctor].
* and
-->'''Rosanna''': You should be in a museum!.

* Though they're most likely not realted to the Pandorica at all, it might be a bit of foreshadowing.

* '''Semi-Confirmed.''' Young Amelia rescued her future self from the Pandorica instead.

[[WMG: The Doctor will get River's Vortex Manipulator and travel back over his own time line to fix things]]
This explains the shadowy figure in "The Eleventh Hour", the "other" Doctor in "Flesh and Stone" and various other minor "continuity errors" over the season.
* '''Semi-Confirmed''' with extra mind-screwy goodness. He does use the Manipulator, but the Shadowy figure and Jacket!Doctor was his timeline being rewound due to his HeroicSacrifice.

[[WMG: Prisoner Zero is somehow related to the silence.]]
Not necisarrily the BigBad as in the theory above, but related. The key detail being something that I only realized in a LateToThePunchline. The line that it said early on "The Pandorica will open, and Silence will fall." The key word being AND. The Pandorica was designed by the Alliance to prevent the Silence from falling. That line would imply that Zero knows more about what's going on then they do.

[[WMG: The ring survived because Rory put it in the same force-field thing that kept the recorder from becoming anti-matter in ''The Three Doctors''.]]
They look rather similar, don't they? Thin bars of metal attatched to a thick base with ropes perpendicular to the bars tied around them. 11's is just smaller than 3's (but let's not go there.)

[[WMG: That voice that came from ''freaking nowhere'' in The Pandorica Opens and said "SILENCE WILL FALL" was the Dream Lord.]]

* And he's gonna say it again in the next series. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
** Could also be the voice of Prisoner Zero or some other chaos-focused villain. Perhaps the voice is meant to sound like a combination of chaos-focused villains seen previously in Series 5. Or perhaps it is the voice of the TARDIS. She may not be a villain, but she certainly seems chaos-focused.

[[WMG: The Atraxi's prisoners are numbered in ''ascending'' order of scariness.]]
Prisoner Zero was the least dangerous, and so had the least security and was the first to escape. Soon, we will meet...PRISONER ONE! RUN!
* Prisoner number one was briefly contained in the Pandorica.
** Was Prisoner One the Eleventh Doctor?
*** And Prisoner Two will be the Valeyard.
* The fact he is numbered "Zero" that blows my mind in a Schrodinger kind of way

[[WMG: The TARDIS protecting earth was deliberate.]]
We know that the TARDIS is sentient. We know that it sealed the console room and stuck River in a Time loop to save her. Though it could be just protocol, it is more likely that without the Doctor there, the Tardis' priorities as its last acts were to protect the Doctor's companion and protect the Earth, becoming a substitute sun and providing radiation and gravity to allow humanity to keep living as long as it could.
* The TARDIS could have also been shielding Earth from the destruction of the Universe. The Doctor says the Earth was at the eye of the storm, but it could have just as well been that the Tardis knew the Doctor was on Earth and it's last act was not to protect humanity but to protect the Doctor.
** The TARDIS may have deliberately attempted to protect Earth because she knows that the protection of Earth is required for the Doctor to stay sane (or about as sane as the Doctor is supposed to be). When the TARDIS explodes, she deliberately protects all of the Companions and Allies of Eleven that remain in existence (assuming they were not all swallowed by Time Cracks) because she knows that the continued existence of these humans and humans in general are a psychological need of Eleven. The existence of most (if not all) of Eleven's Companions and Allies are tied to Eleven's deepest need. The TARDIS may be a Kinky Sex Machine Matchmaker.

[[WMG: The Pandorica is a void ship]]
In "Doomsday", isn't it explicitly stated that nothing can get inside a voidship and you could survive the end of the universe and the beginning of the next inside one?
* I suppose. And that has to do with the Pandorica how exactly?

[[WMG: The Cybermen featured in ''The Pandorica Opens'' and ''Blood of the Cybermen'' are ''not'' from Mondas ''or'' the Alternate Earth.]]
They are in fact a union of the two factions, having registered each other as being the same, with the same goals, they teamed up. The two shared their technology, the Mondas Cybermen benefiting from the Alternate Earth's conversion tech, armor and weaponry, and the Alternate Earth Cybermen gained the Cybermat, which replaced the Cybershades they used in ''The Next Doctor''.

[[WMG: The chickeny monster thing from "Vincent and the Doctor" is a ShoutOut]]
Specifically, to Literature/{{Discworld}}. I mean seriously, a brilliant MadArtist is the only one who can see an invisible chicken monster that's slow driving him mad(der)? That's straight out of ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!''
* ...damn, that actually makes sense!

[[WMG: Amy's Choice is about The Doctor performing an Film/{{Inception}} on Amy]]
With the intent of making her choose Rory over him, because The Doctor is tired of all the romantic drama he had to suffer through as Ten. He intentionally drove through the psychic pollen because he didn't have one of those PASIV suitcases on him. The Dream Lord was intentionally created by him (though not controlled) as a way of creating a situation that would make Amy choose Rory and show Amy how untrustworthy The Doctor really is.
* The Twelfth Doctor may be devious and deliberate, but the Eleventh Doctor seems to do things by accident. I think it is more likely that the TARDIS performed an Inception on Amy.
** There is no Twelfth Doctor. Matt's signed on until at least series 7.

[[WMG: Amy and Rory's dream lord counterparts in Amy's Choice are their baby and ponytail respectively]]
There is not enough darkness in their hearts to give their counterparts sentient form, but they are still there, taunting them about how different their lives would be without The Doctor.

[[WMG: Big Bang II never happened]]
It may occur in 2012 though, at least fictionally.

[[WMG: Series 5 was designed to isolate Whovian speculators]]
The Pandorica could be the most powerful ContinuityLockOut ever.

[[WMG: The Reapers have been erased from time through the cracks]]
The reapers, if you don't remember, came through time paradoxes and destroyed everything to stop a timey-wimey ball from destroying everything. Since they destroy everything influenced by the paradox, then there's no one to remember them for the Big Bang II. After all, the Doctor does say to Amy that if she remembers her parents, she can have them back. So if there's nobody who remembers the Reapers, there's no one to bring them back.

[[WMG: In ''The Beast Below'', we see how the Valeyard could have been 'created'.]]
When The Doctor is about to [[spoiler: turn the SpaceWhale into a vegetable]], he says ''"And then I find a new name, because I won't be The Doctor anymore."''. In some alternate reality in which Amy didn't realize that [[spoiler: the SpaceWhale came to stop children from crying]], the Doctor ''did'' do it. He changes his name to The Valeyard, does increasingly nasty things, justifying them the way he did the events in The Beast Below. The Valeyard from the old stories is the 12th regeneration of ''that'' Doctor, but ''our'' Doctor. Because of Amy (and perhaps the cracks-in-reality thing going on), though, that Valeyard never comes to pass. He still exists in the old stories, for no other reason than he's just enough of The Doctor to not muck with history by removing his origins.

[[WMG: The Weeping Angels could always move as stone]]
Human mothers can be known to do magnificent feats when their children are endangered, such as lift cars, which is not possible in usual life. In psychology, this is called the "fight or flight" response. Well, why is it such a stretch to say that, in a crisis, the angels could still be stone, but move, though significantly slower than their real-body? In "Blink" whenever they moved, we heard the song of wings-not the crunching of stones. Just as they can consciously turn themselves stone, they can consciously move as stone-after all, they still can't be killed. Not blinking won't even save you now.

[[WMG: There was only one original Weeping Angel.]]
It reproduced by images, which then later themselves reproduced by images, and so on. And since each generation of copies may likely be weaker than those before them, the older copies would be much more powerful, not to mention the original.

[[WMG: The TARDIS - and Steven Moffat - have grown tired of the sonic screwdriver's inability to bypass a deadlock seal and the Eleventh Doctor's new screwdriver is now able to do so.]]
The Doctor explicitly states in "The Pandorica Opens" that he can easily open the Pandorica, despite the specific mention of deadlocks. Also, Steven Moffat actually introduced the concept in "The Empty Child" and is presumably sick of the writing team's reliance upon them - particularly the work of Russell T Davies which included the mention of double, triple and maximum deadlocks - presumably stuff the Doctor SERIOUSLY can't open (the Torchwood SUV is triple deadlocked, even!) Therefore, to force the storylines to be more complex, Moffat has ended his own era and and the new screwdriver has been upgraded to deal with those bothersome deadlocks.

[[WMG: As of the New Series, The Doctor is now calculating his age using Earth Years. In the original series, he was calculating his age using Gallifreyan Years]]

One year is the amount of time it takes a planet to orbit its Sun Once. So a year on one planet is highly unlikely to be exactly the same length as a year on another planet.

Given that, there's a fair possibility that once Gallifrey was no more, The Doctor - who has always been more at home on Earth anyway - began using the Earth calendar to keep measurement of his age. So presuming that Gallifrey has shorter years than Earth, he could easily have been 953 years old in Gallifreyan Years during "Time and The Rani" and then later have been just over 907 years old in Earth Years in "Flesh and Stone".

* Alternatively, maybe he used Earth years to start with (he was rebelling against Gallifrey and it's laws for a fair bit during the Classic series, wasn't he?) and because Gallifrey got destroyed, he decided to remember his planet through little things- like using the Gallifreyan calendar. This would work if Gallifreyan years were longer than Earth years.
** On a related note, how exactly is a year calculated on a planet with two suns?
*** Depends on the type of Binary System - Most have a primary that has a secondary orbiting it like a planet, thus if the planet is orbiting the primary, then it is following the orbit of the primary. If it is orbiting the secondary, it still would follow the orbit of the primary, as well. Now, if the primary and secondary are orbiting in the center, and the planets are orbiting around both, it is probably a work of astronomy to determine the exact time one full rotation would be, as these masses would not make for stable orbits...

[[WMG: The Doctor was doing an alien tribal dance at Amy and Rory's wedding.]]
Specifically, the Barcelonian Sacred Dance of Joy, traditionally performed at weddings by the family of the bride to bring good luck to the newlyweds.
* So does this mean the Doctor considers Amy to be family?
** Well, he is her imaginary friend...
** and her [[spoiler: son-in-law]].

[[WMG: River Song has a BDSM Dalek fetish]]
The Dalek from the museum knew it, and rather than shoot her and indulge it, let itself be killed.

[[WMG: The "Dalek Rangers" are actually from the Peter Cushing Movie universe.]]
It would explain why the progenitor didn't recognize the other Daleks, and the Dalek timeline is already messed up enough as it is.

[[WMG: The Daleks from "Victory of the Daleks" were from "The Parting of The Ways"]]
This is why the Progenitor did not recognise them- they were grown from humans. When [[spoiler: Rose destroyed the Dalek fleet]], the immense power involved tore open the Time Vortex for a moment, allowing a heavily damaged ship to fall through.

[[WMG: The ENTIRETY of Series Five is a gentle TakeThat to Russell T Davies' tenure as Executive Producer]]
Not insultingly so, mind you, since it's important to remember that Steven Moffat does respect the guy, but ''still''. Consider:
* The Doctor's known Amy since she was little, which actually gives her an understandable reason to feel a connection to the Doctor beyond "Hot Guy With The Ultimate Sports Car." Additionally, ''everyone'' who doesn't realize the Doctor actually exists treats this attitude as an obsession bordering on genuine insanity, a reaction strikingly absent from Rose's unsettlingly arrogant clinginess.
** Probably not, given that Moffat seems to like Rose a lot, some "clingy" jokes aside.
* The "Cracks in Time" MythArc has the rather convenient side effect of completely erasing the fannish silliness that was ''The Stolen Earth/Journey's End'' and the historically incompatible ending to ''The Next Doctor''.
* Not only are the old-style Daleks killed off -- violently -- the new ones promptly ''run away'' and are only seen sparingly afterward, in contrast to Davies' overuse of them.
** That's...not what happened. At best, that's a white lie. "Running away" sounds like a loss.
* Shipping is punted out the window and then shot at, with lasers. The Doctor reacts with abject horror to Amy's come-ons (which, on her part, are pretty poorly thought out), doesn't appreciate Amy's fangirlish insistence that he and River will eventually get married, and generally takes any chance he can get to tactfully imply that this incarnation doesn't find InterspeciesRomance appealing in the slightest. [[MarriedToTheJob He does enjoy flirting with]] [[CargoShip The TARDIS]], though.
** It was more blatant in series 6, but River was hardly subtle in her implications either. Not to mention, when Amy asked River if it was the Doctor, she responded ambiguously, but hinted towards the postiive.
** Then there's ''A Christmas Carol'', in which, as though waking up in the middle of a terrible fanfiction, the Doctor finds himself suddenly and inexplicably paired up with MarilynMonroe. He does his best to escape the situation as quickly as possible.
** And then he apparently marries her out of spite when his companions weren't paying enough attention.
*** What has that got to do with Russell? Even tangentially? Or the production series ''5''? It's not even the A-plot either.
* The finale, which first parodies Davies' writing style by having the Doctor [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny fight everyone, ever]], then deconstructs it by summarily forgetting about them and centering the actual antagonistic tension around exactly one Dalek and confining everything to a couple rooms in one building, while a NegativeSpaceWedgie makes even the setting increasingly minimalist. The lesson being, "Epic" doesn't have to mean "Big".
** PARODY? WTF? It's clearly playing the "gather all enemies against the Doctor" completely ''straight''. The only thing it really deconstructs is how the Doctor isn't especially a hero to everyone.

[[WMG: The foods that Eleven tried after regenerating weren't random.]]
* He first tried apples, because ten Ten liked them. But that wasn't right. Then he tried yoghurt yogurt and bacon, and after that, beans, before setteling on custard and fish fingers. Consider this: both yoghurt yogurt and custard are diary products, and both bacon and fish fingers are meat (or, at least, dead animal) fried in butter or oil. (I don't know what amy Amy used.) I don't know if this is important, but it is interesting that eleven knew in wich direction he had to search. I can't explain the beans in tomato sauce, though.

[[WMG: The TARDIS exploding wasn't intended to end everything.]]
From what we've seen of the Silence, they don't seem like [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal maniacs.]] Yet they're responsible for the cracks. Why did they do this? All part of their EvilPlan. [[GenreSavvy They knew the Doctor would save reality,]] because they were behind it and the Pandorica. The fact that Amy Pond was capable of remembering the Doctor back into existence was an extension of their ultimate plan-to learn and perfect rewriting reality. To become a more powerful force, [[AGodAmI even gods.]] Their sudden prescene could be an example of this-before Series Six, they could've been a primitive race. Now,they're manipulating humanity. [[GalacticConqueror And in]] [[DimensionLord a few more]] [[MultiversalConqueror attempts...]]
* Alternatively, going on a theory that they're actually good guys,it was a {{plan}} to get the Doc more regenerations, as they believed that being basically recreated out of Amy's memories would set him back as the first, while still preserving his previous incarnations due to the Doctor himself remembering them. And whoever posted above that this had reset his regenerations was a Silent attempting to gain redemption in the eyes of the fans.
** If the Silence are good guys, they may have altered history so they can be Earth's protection. That way, even in the event of the Doctor's death, the universe will be safe. Or they're one of many individuals who think the Doctor is a threat to the universe. Their {{plan}} would mean the universe wouldn't stay destroyed, and be reset in the end. However the Doctor would be DeaderThanDead, aka RetGone. Everything he's doen to save reality, however, would remain. So the universe remains safe.
** Seems partly confirmed: [[WellIntentionedExtremist their ends are good]], but their means are extreme and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero backfire horribly.]]



The Delirium Archive is the museum from the beginning of "The Time of Angels". We learn two things about the place: 1) it is an asteroid, 2) according to the Doctor it is "the final resting place of the Headless Monks." On top of that, the scenes in the Archive are stated to take place 12,000 years farther in the future than the rest of the two-parter, which takes place in the 51st or 52nd century. It is entirely plausible that Demon's Run, at some point long after the events of "A Good Man Goes to War", ended up being turned into a museum.

The TARDIS being a universe-level doomsday device an extreme oversight of the designer, and a boneheaded move by [[WellIntentionedExtremist the Silence]], so why can it do this? It can't. By itself, all the TARDIS exploding would do to reality is prick it. The problem was that the universe had already suffered ''massive'' tears, lacerations and general bad juju-mainly surrounding the Time War. The Silence [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm could not grasp the true timey-wimey tears]] left by this CosmicHorrorStory of a battle, so they thought that one more dent wouldn't hurt. In reality, history was basically a severely cracked and damaged pane of glass, significantly lowering the threshold before everything falls apart. Rebooting the universe helped to restore the glass. This could also explain why the TimeCrash is significantly more common post-Time War: the conflict made creation incredibly fragile

[[WMG: The Book about the Weeping Angels from "The Time of Angels" was written by the Doctor himself]]
Listen to what River said about it: "It was written by a madman, it's barely readable."
Now listen to the Doctor: "Bit slow in the middle, didn't you hate his girlfriend?"
That last little bit sounds kinda like something the Doctor would say to River about River, since they were in the "Slap Slap" part of their relationship at that point (and he was really angry at River for manipulating him.) "Written by a madman" explains itself, but doesn't "slow in the middle" and "barely readable" sound like what would happen when somebody who despises TheSlowPath had to write down all the info he knows about something. Maybe he learned from Sally Sparrow's example and decided to write down a warning about the Angels. He might not have even known he wrote it.

Because otherwise it doesn't make much sense why it exploding would destroy time and space. Due to its multi-dimensional nature, whenever a TARDIS self-destructs, it unravels across history as well [[NoOntologicalInertia and it is erased from existence.]] After all, "The Doctor's Wife" shows Idris/Sexy is a NonLinearCharacter, so something affecting all of her at once is plausible. This was some sort of fault in the old Type 40 model, but since Time Lords rarely venture outside Gallifrey it's not that much of a concern. However the Doctor's TARDIS has been involved with an enormous amount of history, more so than any other TARDIS. Even alternate universes have been affected by the TARDIS, hence the Cybus Cybermen claiming "all universes will be deleted"(maybe not all, but Pete's World as well). The Silence either did not know this or underestimated just how important the TARDIS was to the timeline, so by blowing it up [[TimeCrash it literally unraveled history.]] The reason why no-one has considered this before is because only by self-destructing would the Total Event Collapse occur: disintegrate the TARDIS or destroy the interior, and you'll just disintegrate the entirety/separate the inside from the rest of reality.

[[WMG: Progenitor Daleks are pre-Civil War Daleks]]
Smooth, retro design. Their casing comes from earlier blueprints and design, but augmented with Time-War era technology. Also, few of the Daleks we have seen in recent years have been "true" Daleks.

* Imperial Daleks are made from humans, if I recall correctly. Since Nu Who Daleks are aligned with Davros, we can assume Time-War era Daleks are descended from Imperial Daleks.

* The Dalek seen in "Dalek" is a time-war era Dalek. The Daleks with the Emperor in ''Bad Wolf'' are made from human DNA. The Emperor is a time-war era Dalek, and so was the Cult of Skaro.

* New Dalek Empire, as seen in in ''Stolen Earth'' are made from Davros' cells.

Thus, none were true Daleks.

* This is supported by the fact that they seem to have a colour-based hierarchy and possibly specialities, like the originals always did.

* Also the civil war from "The Evil of the Daleks" came from the first time the Daleks decided to deviate from the norm (the ''Human Factor'').
