The Alliance locks the Doctor in the Pandorica to save the universe.

However, they actually succeeded, by putting the person who could save the universe in the thing he needed to save it with!

how about the cybus cybermen appearing, with no explanation as to how they survived. or general kudlak, or the hoix. i call the alliance, "hey, here's how we save money, we use all the monster outfits we have in storage"

well this is a time traveling show so those could be versions of them from points in time before they met there ends. the cracks in time effected all points in time, past. present, and future. but that's giving the writers a lot of credit, i probably agree with your explanation.

There's nothing wrong with being economical.

I don't even know where to begin. The whole thing was crazy. And not necessarily in a good way...

I dunno, sure beat the heck out of "Commit Genocide to the Dalek Race for the Billionth Time" or "Write myself into a corner with no logical or sane resolution, so we'll steal the Burning Courage/Justice trope from Japanese Animation and call it good" finales we had gotten.

I agree! And the thing about the Daleks... They'd been erased from history, so when the Doctor reboots the universe, he saves them, too! He brought the entire universe back, even the worst of it.

Could have done without the Stone Dalek though. That part just seemed contrived and my reaction was "Well, it wouldn't be a Doctor Who Season Finale without the angry salt and pepper shakers."

I understand the BBC has to use them or give up the rights (Which is kinda dickish by the Nation Estate, if I'm going to be honest), but still. It's getting ridiculous.

At least the Stone Dalek served a story purpose, but still. Once that purpose was served (To establish the regenerative properties of the Pandorica), don't keep reviving the darn thing to chase the cast around like a demented Scooby Doo Villain.
