Doctor, The Lodger
Like Blink before it, The Lodger is based on a strip – this time a Roberts strip from Doctor Who Magazine in which the Tenth Doctor stays with Mickey Smith for a week while the TARDIS drifts without him.
The Lodger is one of the last episodes to be recorded, and is also the episode in which James Corden – best known to TV viewers as Smithy from the puzzlingly popular Gavin & Stacey – guests with Smith, and it also featured a football match. Dedicated Doctor Who fans will know that Matt Smith had early hopes of being a footballer that were dashed through injury.
