    Some of the posts in here are far too long for me to read. My brain stops when I get past the first couple of paragraphs, sorry.


    Didn't the Doctor mention something about Amy's house in the episode? Going back to the "it being a TARDIS" thing.... I'm sure he mentioned it having too many rooms for it's size. And why would Amy be in a house that big....


    Knowing me, though, I imagined it. Haven't had a chance to re-watch it yet.


    No you are right, he did say that, I'm thinking time child?!


    I'm not so mad then? lol


    Time child? It's a theory...

    I think its more to do with the fact that she had a family,but the crack took them away. And there is of course the staircase that leads to no-where...


    There still weren't many people in the house though, were there? I think he might have been wondering the same as us.... WHY are there so many bedrooms/rooms? And a staircase that leads nowhere....?


    I'm just confused by the whole thing, to be honest. They must stop it all happening, otherwise there wouldn't be another series. I just can't work out HOW. Then again my brain has been clapped out for a while, so...

    Amy has a 2 story house (As seen from the outside).
    But of course there is a second staircase above the one to the 1st (or second, what ever, always confuses me).

    like in the lodger, where there was a "TARDIS" also would (sort of) explain how the photo of Rory stayed there.

    Or the entire 3rd floor has a perception filter on it, because the Doctor (after being in the Pandorica) is hiding in there, 'building' a new TARDIS.

    I am too lazy to do 2 posts, and as both quotes I'll be responding to are here....


    YES. If things that are inside the TARDIS are the only things not to evaporate when someone gets sucked into the crack (was that said?), like the ring....how did the picture stay, UNLESS the house is a TARDIS.... or hiding one.


    Which brings me to the second quote.


    I like this idea. Is it sad that it would make me happy if that happened? Innocent

    I'd like it to happen as well. Only problem with my theory is that a TARDIS needs to be grown, as opposed to built.

    Yes, this is true.


    And I don't think he'd find an energy core like the one in the TARDIS just lying around. Or a black hole for that matter.


    Unless he use's the Pandorica itself in some way?

    That would make sence.
    Or it might not be a TARDIS, it may well be a time machine in itself...
    ...I've got a spoiler...but don't know how to do tags lol.

    Could be. But it would be a shame if it wasn't a proper "bigger on the inside" thing. Can't imagine they'd have the show without a TARDIS, though....would they?


    I used to be able to do them, when the site used proper HTML. [spoiler] Try words in here [/spoiler*] but without the *

    Who says they're not? River counted tens of thousands of ships above Stonehenge. Besides, not all the species mentioned were there when the Doctor was put in the Pandorica.
