  1. Don’t know who else watches this on the Canadian Space channel, but the theory they showed would make so much sense…

    • Standard 12 episodes season for Doctor Who, in Canada we’re up to the 8th episode and since we are 3 weeks late it came out at a normal time.

  2. Sufficiently mysterious, while also containing a lot of tiny morsels to chew on. Definitely a good trailer. Although I sure hope this isn’t the end of the Matt Smith Doctor / Amy Pond duo. I do believe MS is my Doctor. :) (Other choices being vaugue recollections of Jon Pertwee and Colin Baker, as well as the later specials from the David Tennant era.)

  3. Isn’t this a whole retread of the toclafane? Meaning “but it’s just a myth!” thing to build lame tension, when we will all probably guess what it is before the episode is half over. Cue “Space Jesus” or Amy who will be “space Mary”, who will reset it all.

    What i find funny is, according to wikipedia about Pandora’s Box (and naming it like that is just uncreative), ” It was used for storage of wine, oil, grain or other provisions, or, ritually, as a container for a human body for burying. In the case of Pandora, this jar may have been made of clay for use as storage as in the usual sense, or of bronze metal as an unbreakable prison.” I give odds Amy’s fiance is in there, or the Valeyard, who was most likely the “dream master” from a few episodes back.

    This whole season has been a ton of Meh for me. Too much “take amy on her honeymoon” type crap. Which is sad, because she’s so far my favorite companion, but when you know you have a huge danger, dragging out episodes with a little teaser in each just seems so stupid. Like, “Hm, universe is in danger, i know! Let’s go party!” Meh.
