The Black Archive #44: The Pandorica Opens / The Big Bang


Synopsis

“Who takes the Pandorica takes the universe.”

The TARDIS explodes. The universe is cracked. Space-time is collapsing. The Pandorica Opens / The Big Bang typifies Steven Moffat’s ‘timey-wimey’ take on Doctor Who. It draws on the legend of Pandora’s Box and exhorts the power of memories. This Black Archive explores how time operates in the Series 5 finale, in Doctor Who as a wider narrative, and in real life. How do anomalies and paradoxes work in the show? What might the end and beginning of the universe actually look like? And what caused the TARDIS to blow up anyway?

Philip Bates is the editor and co-founder of the DoctorWho Companion.
