I noticed them when I saw the trailer last week, but didn't dare mention Omega for fear of being forum-bashed.

Perhaps there is some cult trying to set about bringing back the Time Lords - and Melody was key to all of that.

No, they're clerics. The Alpha and Omega symbols are major images in the Church.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning and the end. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life." (Revelations 21:6)

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End" (Revelations 22:13)

"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." (Revelations 1:8)

I was thinking along those lines. That Melody is weapon created by the timelords to fight against the doctor and that omega is behind it

TBH the idea of Omega being behind everything doesn't make much sense to me because they only want Melody because she's part Time Lord. Why would an actual, full Time Lord need her?

Except it's a Pi in the symbol rather than an Alpha.

Here's an alternative possibility. Is it a crude representation of...

The End Of Time is surely a reference to Omega.

We will just have to wait and see. I do think its something to do with the time lords trying to break the time lock and omega though. Its not any worse than what some people have wrote on here lol

Just noticed that right at the start, when Amy first picks up Melody, on the glass that has her name on it, there's symbols underneath, the first one is Omega. Not the one with lines in it, actual Omega

I hope it is something like that.

When Madame Kovarian talked about "this endless bitter war" against the Doctor, that sounded like an epic statement and I want an epic colourful villain to be behind it all, not just a bunch of grumpy humans from the future who are cross with the Doctor because he looked at them funny.

I know The Silence are mixed up in it somewhere, but I am not sure I care about them very much yet because we have only met them once and they didn't do much.

In order to get himself back in reality perhaps? Access to the TARDIS itself .. maybe her being just half Time Lord she is vulnerable to attacks and also River Song knows about the Doctor's time line.

Interesting new thought having watched it again.

During the control room scene where Dr and Silurian discuss the baby's origins.

Look down the corridor. An octagonal corridor with exit/entrance door open.
All in the same proportions to the symbol.

Is it a symbol of a door opening ? Someone coming ? An advent ?

Here, I capped the bit I meant http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/b...amer/omega.png

They must have been making a point of showing us that, if it was just about letting us know her name, they could have just let us find out when Amy told The Doctor that her name is Melody

Made me laugh. (Are you actually from Tod?)

I am always amazed at the way out theories that are posted here, but I have to say this is one way out theory I could believe to be actually true because it could easily be presented to a new audience without a lot of explanation.

I'm not about to write about a long speculation post (well, I did but I bored myself so I deleted it) but three points did strike me. Omega must really hate the Doctor right now, he needs a Time Lord body and the word Omega, as has been pointed out, has religious connotations.

Mmm. Perhaps Omega is manipulating Madam Kovarion et al. so they think that they're making a Time Lord to fight the Doctor, when in fact he needs one to get himself out of that black hole or wherever he is.

omega is trapped in an antimatter universe he wants back into this one. he cant do it without a body to inhabit. he tried to steal the doctors in the book "infinity doctors". The doctor wouldn't let him get away with it twice or even a third time now i think of it. didnt peter davidsons doctor have this story line too.? Anyway what if rivers purpose is dual "A" kill the doctor so he's out of the way "B" unbeknownst to river she will also serve as vessel for omega, complete with rengenerative capabilities. A fully human body cannot cope with timelords mind - rememeber what happened to donna noble - but a human spliced with timelord DNA may well work
