Maybe I missed it, but what actually causes the Tardis to explode?

Is it something to do with Amy beginning to remember Rory? which causes some sort of time paradox?

I imagine it is something or someone that we are yet to see.

It hasn't been revealed yet, and neither has what Amy's connection to events is. We've only had part of the story so far...

I think it will be something to do with whomever/whatever is controlling the TARDIS.

I'm not sure it's "someone" who's controlling the Tardis, would seem there's only one race which would have such power, which would mean other Timelords or The Master or seemingly impossible The Doctor himself somehow!

Though someone/something inside the Tardis said "silence", but my thinking was that had come from the heart of the Tardis.

But yes guess I was getting a bit ahead of myself... I guess the finale is about The Doctor escaping from the Pandorica and preventing the Tardis from exploding...

So do we think River goes up with the TARDIS or was the white flash as she apologised her using the vortex manipulator to get out of there?

My money's on River Song being the cause of the problem.

I think she does get out of there... as she hasn't been to the Library yet with the 10th Doctor where she dies... fixed points in time and all that I'm guessing?

Me too, I thinking it's something to do with Amy remembering Rory which she shouldn't be able to do, which causes Time to begin to unravel and crack, and the Tardis to explode.

SM has already laid the seeds for wiping that out by proving time can be rewritten. It doesn't really matter that they haven't happened yet...

I doubt it has anything to do with Amy remembering Rory, for the simple fact that Rory as an Auton was taken directly from her subconscious memory (as were all the centurions). Therefore she never really forgot him. Any problems would have occured immediately after he'd been erased, were that the case...

There is someone, or something, behind it all, I'm betting.

It can be rewritten yes, but she remembered the events of the Pandorica at the crash of the Byzantium.

She's not gonna be dead.

I initally thought it had something to do with two tardii being in close proximity to each other from relatively close timelines. Much like how to Brigadeers caused trouble in Mawdwin undead.

However, I think there are examples of two Tardii being close, do I think I'm wrong....

River Song overloading the time circuits or some other mumbo jumbo. Didn't she say "I'm sorry Doctor" at the end when she was in the TARDIS?

I believe it was "Sorry my love".

She said sorry because she couldn't get out like she promised and thus shut down the TARDIS engines and prevent it exploding, not because she caused it.

Oh. I thought it had materialised inside stone.

Either way, what sort of uber-villain would want to see the eradication of the Universe in it's absolute entirety, its past, present and future??

I think she's filled it with diesel, and clearly it's unleaded only. So until she's cleaned out the engine, it's knackered

Something to do with the 'TARDIS' like ship from The Lodger?

The TARDIS had problems with that as well, until it jumped away.

As did I.

Maybe no one does. That could just be a bad side-effect of the Big Bad's plan.

Or maybe the eradication of this Universe means good things for others. Say, for instance,
