My suspicion is that this was not the original plan for the Crack in Time. After all, if the Doctor was meant to imprisoned in the Pandorica why blow up the TARDIS as well? And how exactly did they do it? And if by doing so they destroy the whole universe, isn't that rather counter-productive and defeats the purpose? One can only assume they didn't understand the implications of destroying the TARDIS. Also, I seem to remember (in the Big Bang I think) the Doctor saying something like "We still don't know why the TARDIS was brought to this place"? Was this ever really explained? I suppose one might argue that it was part of getting Amy onto the TARDIS and thence to the conception on the TARDIS of River Song? But this all suggests they didn't have a lot of faith in the Pandorica working. Or perhaps the Pandorica was someone else's idea. I don't remember the Pandorica being mentioned. The more I think about it, the less satisfactory and more perfunctory I find the one-sentence explanation "Kovarian tried to blow up the TARDIS" and I am becoming more convinced that this was not the original plan but the writers has to tie up a loose end.
