Doctor Who Episode 13 – The Big Bang

Doctor Who – The Big Bang Ep 13/13

The Doctor is gone, the Tardis has been destroyed, and the universe is collapsing. The only hope for all reality is a little girl who still believes in stars, as this series of Doctor Who concludes with an episode written by Steven Moffat.

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

Doctor Who is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC’s High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

    there is always a xmas day episode of dr who so there will be an episode on xmas day, no idea when you will get it in the states.

    On another point something we haven’t cottoned onto, prisoner 0 says the pandorical has opened, silence will fall. Now you could argue that at the end of the pandorical the pandorical has been shut, with the dr inside so maybe this isnt the event 0 is refering to.

    Also if young amy is meant to open the pandorical, if it is the dr or amy in it doesn’t matter, she should remember something as monumental as that event, so I think this is the event she has to remember.

I wish they would have a Doctor Who convention here in the states!! Love to be there!! :o. I hope they do an epy in New York. Maybe I’ll have a chance to catch them filming. Love the new characters…doctor amy…rory etc. Hope everybody stays with their 5 yr. contract!!

    I always figured that back in “Time of Angels” the doctor wasn’t saying that time could be changed. He meant literally that time was being erased and had to be restored. I somewhat believe that all the events and objects that have fallen through the cracks will return in “The Big Bang”.

    @ Richard, you know…you are correct. I keep forgetting that point and I keep forgetting that she has the ability to time travel (via the vortex manipulator). But if she is already in jail, then she has already killed someone (but it’s in the future – year 5145…but still her past). My head hurts again…I’m going to lie down now.

    just a quick point, in pandorica river is imprisoned in storm cage, so apparently has killed the person.

  • B-Me

    June 24th, 2010 - 10:26pm

    Regarding River and her constantly saying “spoilers”…back when she had met the Doctor (David Tennent) in Silence in the Library, she was meeting him at the end of her lifetime, but it was the first time the Doctor had met her. She stated that she had book (history of the two of them) however she stated that she and a future Doctor (the one whom she presumably married) had agreed not to reveal anything they had not yet experienced in their respective timeline.

    For example, at the end of Flesh and Stone, River knew what was going to happen in The Pandorica Opens but she could not reveal any “spoilers” to the Doctor because he had yet to experience it.

    Also, in the Pandorica Opens, River had not yet killed someone, been imprisoned or experienced The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone, so when Amy tries to tell her what she had told the Doctor at the end of Flesh and Stone, River stopped her “spoilers”.

    Just my opinion.

    Steven Moffat is aware fans go looking for spoilers ( like here ) and its his little dig at them hence “shhhhhh no spoilers” he doesn’t like he story lines being given away

    what i am really puzzled about, is why does river song always say spoilers is the doctors real name or summit

    I noticed the stairs, thought it might be to an attic room but they seem grand for that, production oversight – I doubt it.

    I think the entire ledworth setup is faked (and there is something odd about that scene with Patrick Moore)

    Just so you know B-Me, the HP movie you were talking about was the Prisoner of Azkaban.

    It would be good if the Doctor came out with “you jammy dodger” when Amy comes back alive (I know she does cos she’s doing series 6). I can imagine that. Even if he doesn’t, I’ll know I’ll be saying it.

    Note: I don’t mean I’m gonna call Amy a biscuit, I mean like he’s relieved that she’s okay, so it’s like an alternative to Chris Ecc’s “Fantastic!” Mind you, Amy’s mortality is one of the most unwell kept spoilers in the entire Whoniverse. The website is acting like she’s dead for good, when Karen Gillan has already announced she’s doing series 6.

    OK have stumbled on this at this website

    think it makes intresting reading

    * The “Future Doctor” thing from ‘Flesh and Stone’ DOES happen, and has been confirmed by people who have seen the scripts.
    * The Pandorica has a rather useful feature, in that it keeps you alive… forever. (Which is good, considering what just happened to Amy.)
    * Amy has a very special brain because she grew up next to the crack for so long.
    * Auton-Rory is responsible for releasing the Doctor, and Amy gets locked inside the Pandorica while the Doctor goes off to find the right “fuel” to bring her back to life, leaving Rory to guard the box. Stuff happens and Rory is left waiting a LONG TIME, hence the “love that lasts a thousand years.” He becomes “The Lone Centurion” and is spotted throughout time guarding the box. (and as some fans have pointed out, this actually makes him chronologically older than the Doctor now!)
    * Rory doesn’t stay an Auton though, and he supposedly ends up human by the end.
    * The TARDIS does explode, but it’s not how you think.
    * There is a wedding at the end, and one person who has seen the episode says that the ending is cheesily reminiscent of The Wizard of Oz.

    Finally, there are some pretty strong indications that Omega shows up at the end. (possibly played by Jason Isaacs, aka Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter films) He may not be a traditional big bad though, and it’s possible that his appearance is just a teaser for bigger events to occur in Series 6.
    The main evidence in favor of the evil Time Lord’s return come from two independent posters on Gallifrey Base; one who claims to have seen some concept art, and another who says that he was shown a suit of black “armor” with big gauntlets labled as “Omega.” As for Jason Isaacs taking over the role, he was seen entering a closed door meeting with Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and John Simm a few months back (after this episode was filmed, though). This led to much speculation that he could be taking over the role of the Master next year (or possibly just appearing in a future season of ‘Sherlock’, which Moffat and Gatiss also produce), but considering that another informant has teased that “a Harry Potter actor has a surprise role in the finale,” some of that speculation has shifted towards him possibly being Omega instead.

    in the 11th hour, when amy has the doctor tied up to the radiator, it looks like the stairs to the third floor stop at the roof

    as a point to note ian collier played omega previously in dr who, he is actually dead now so will have to see how they use him, possibly use his voice.

  • Richard Cariven

    June 24th, 2010 - 7:55pm

    well it looks like it is now official, IMDB lists ian collier as playing omega in the big bang, so he is the big bad guy. For those intrested look omega up on wikki and get his history.
