Alternate timeline

National Museum

The National Museum. (TV: The Big Bang)

At Easter, Auton Rory Williams finished his job guarding the Pandorica at the National Museum. A version of Amelia Pond rescued her older, nearly deceased self, who had been inside the Pandorica since 102, with the younger Amy's DNA. The Eleventh Doctor, having taken a Vortex manipulator from 102, seemed to be killed by a Stone Dalek. River Song killed it shortly afterward. This was a ruse to sneak past and fly the Pandorica with the Doctor inside into his exploding TARDIS to reboot the universe, which was being destroyed by the Time Field. (TV: The Big Bang)
