Silence will Fall Speculation

Eleventh Hour spoilers!

Russell T. Davies seeded some interesting series story arcs during his time on the show. Who could forget ‘Bad Wolf’, or Harold Saxon and the eventual reveal of the Master (YANA). These arcs are a little treat for eagle-eyed fans who follow the show every week and want to look at the bigger picture.

Now with Steven Moffat’s era underway, it looks like the new head writer is following suit. The Doctor was told twice in The Eleventh Hour, ‘silence will fall’ by Prisoner Zero. A phrase which really had nothing to do with the rest of the plot. Naturally a lot of fans are thinking this will be the recurring story arc throughout the fifth series. Below is the exact quote…

“The cracks in the skin of the universe – don’t you know where they came from? You don’t, do you? The Doctor and the TARDIS doesn’t know. The universe is cracked. The Pandorica will open. Silence will fall.”

"Silence Doctor. Silence will fall!"

So what other clues are there? The crack in Amy’s room may have much more significance. When the Doctor is in the TARDIS at the end we see what looks like the wall crack on the console screen.

Now the cracks don’t line up, but the similarities are there and the camera lingers on the console screen for a suspiciously long time. Could something else be coming through the cracks?

We also had the Jeff’s laptop with a rather prominent ‘MYTH’ logo on display for a while. The ‘Y’ using the Greek symbol for PSI (Ψ). This could feed into a greek mythology theme and Pandorica – Pandora’s box. And what happens if you open Pandora’s box…

Of course there’s a chance we could be looking to much into this, but it will be interesting to see what crops up in the coming episodes. Let the speculation continue…
