Final Farewell to the Eleventh Doctor’s Era: Countdown of My 25 Favorite Episodes. Number 12 - The Lodger

This is, to me, the most unusual of all the episodes in Matt Smith’s era and might even be a bit of filler episode serving as an Amy light episode before the heavy hitting final episodes, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing because this absolutely works at what it is meant to be.

The Doctor appears on Craig’s doorstep with a sack of money for rent prepared to play the nice normal lodger. Of course, this will not go as easily as he expects and the episode is filled Matt Smith shining at portraying the Doctor’s rather amusing attempts to be normal. But where is the fun in forcing yourself to be normal when you aren’t? Ultimately, the doctor’s complete inability to be normal is what wins him over to both the audience and Craig in this episode.

But the glue holding this episode together is in the romance at the center of the story. Craig and Sophie’s relationship is perfectly suited for a single episode. It’s a very simple and classic story that we’ve seen a million times before so we have no trouble following along and identifying with these characters almost instantly, but rarely has a relationship like this appeared on Doctor Who making it stand out.

Craig and Sophie are so adorably sweet, low key, and a bit nerdily awkward in a way that would make them rather ill suited to be companions traveling around on the Tardis risking their lives on a weekly basis, but absolutely perfect to drop in on for two episodes during this era and give the Doctor a taste of real life rather than the usual story of a human who gets a taste of fantasy.

I would have absolutely loved to see them return one more time in series seven, but truthfully, their story is a story that tells itself leaving little that needs to be said after they live happily ever after. They may only be in two episodes, but they feel like a substantial part of this era.

As for the monster, well, there is one, but that’s not what we really care about in this episode. This one was entirely driven by the interactions between Craig, Sophie, and the Doctor and I loved it for that.

What? I’ve never seen a set with the pen before. And the customizable set’s okay, but the remote is fun. Terrible remote, though. Far to touchy.
Eh, I suppose that’s predictable. The remotes still look absolutely fantastic, though. Gorgeous detailing.
I haven’t seen the pen set in many places, so I can see how you may have missed it. It’s a great set, though. I love it.

It is a bit shiny.

Looks a bit nicer than the toy, though.

image

Yeah, but the remote doesn’t pop open.

The way the extension works on the toy is pretty weird, anyway.

image

They make you hit a button on the bottom to make it light up.

It’s really weird.

Yeah, I know. My brother has one.

And because I really can’t help it…

TOP 10 DOCTOR WHO EPISODES as voted in my poll
#8 - The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End

I just want you to know there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble, a thousand million light years away. They will never forget her, while she can never remember. And for one moment, one shining moment, she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe. 
She still is. She’s my daughter. 
Then maybe you should tell her that once in a while.
