But, there are plenty of things that need to be answered in order for everyone to feel entirely pleased. Looking at website Holymoly.com, they have created a list of what they believe should be addressed for things to be tied up neatly.
First of all you’ve got the Silence, nasty big old aliens that clearly haven’t been killed off as we see them in modern day America in The Impossible Astronaut. What are their plans and what exactly does the phrase “Silence will fall” actually mean?
The Doctor now knows that he has an impending date with death in the shape of a mysterious astronaut but who exactly is it that shoots that fatal shot? River, the Doctor himself? Who is the mysterious shape hiding behind the wooden shack when all this happens (watch the scene where old Canton turns up at the beginning closely to see a shadowy figure hiding behind the small shack in the background)? Will the Doctor be able to get out of this one?
And what exactly is going to happen with River now that we know her origins? Hopefully we’re going to see her growing up and learn more about why she was arrested and who she killed but how long will The Grand Moff make us wait for this?
On top of these burning issues, we also still want to find out about the clerics and Madame Kovarian and exactly why they’re fighting an “endless war” against the Doctor. Looking further back to Series 5, who caused the TARDIS to explode? Who was the mysterious voice declaring “Silence will fall”? And most importantly, did Rory and Amy ever get the Doctor to get rid of their bunk beds?
Hopefully, all should start being revealed tonight, possibly not the bunk bed issue though.
