     Writers: Mark Gatiss
     Director
: Andrew Gunn

The Daleks are hatching a new master plan from the heart of war-torn London in the 1940s. It's the Second World War and Britain has developed a new weapon: metal soldiers, built like mini tanks, designed by an ingenious professor. They're called Ironsides, they're deadly and they're here to help. But the Doctor knows that's all a lie. They're Daleks and they have their own agenda. But why don't they recognise him? Why are they subservient to Winston Churchill? And what is the purpose of the Progenitor? This time, there might not be a happy ending.

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

He has been warned that the Pandorica, a repository of the most dangerous threats in the Universe, is opening. This episode features the Daleks, Cybermen, Judoon and Sontarans feature.

A Van Gogh painting ferried across thousands of years, communicating a disturbing prophecy to the Doctor, a message on the oldest cliff-face in the universe and a love that lasts a thousand years. In 102 AD England, Romans receive a surprise visit from Cleopatra. Nearby, Stonehenge conceals the Pandorica, a prison-box of legend. As it slowly unlocks from the inside, terrible forces gather in the heavens above. The fates are drawing close around the TARDIS is this the day the Doctor falls? But there is just one certainty: Silence will fall...

The episode title refers to the Pandorica which was first mentioned in 'The Eleventh Hour' and once again by River Song in the fifth episode of this series, 'Flesh and Stone'. The Doctor believes it to be merely a fairytale.

13. The Big Bang! (Part 2 - Episode 2) - 55 minutes
     Writers:  Steven Moffat
     Director
: Toby Haynes

This is the last episode of series 5. The Doctor is dealing with a message on a cliff, a mysterious box and a love story which spans over millennia. The Doctor is gone, the TARDIS has been destroyed, Amy Pond has been shot by Rory Williams (Auton version) and the universe is collapsing. The only hope for all reality is a little girl who still believes in stars.

Some interesting quotes from second part of the two-part season finale:

After the wedding, the Doctor gives River the Vortex Manipulator to return to her time.
The Doctor: River... who are you?
River Song: You're going to find out very soon now. And I'm sorry, but that's when everything changes.

River Song: I have a lot of questions, but the first one has to be; what in the name of sanity do you have on your head?
The Doctor: It's a fez. I wear a fez now, fez's are cool.

At the end of 'The Big Bang', aboard the TARDIS, the Doctor explains to Amy and Rory that unanswered questions remain about the destruction of the TARDIS and the nature of 'the Silence' that will fall, but before they can contemplate that, the Doctor receives a telephone call alerting him to the presence of an escaped Egyptian goddess on the Orient Express in space. Rory and Amy decide to join him and the three leave on their next adventure.

The next story might be on December 25, 2010 on Christmas Day.
