Doctor Who - "The Lodger"

Spoiler Warning: Medium

This episode kind of sums up my feelings on the entire season. Not really deep, but some nice sentimental moments and overall a lot of fun.

Watching the Doctor trying to pass himself off as a normal guy and failing miserably makes for some great comedy. As Rich and I have discussed with each other in the comments, Matt Smith's strength in his performance as the Doctor is his ability to be off the wall, and this episode plays very strongly to that.

And another awesome montage of earlier Doctors. Fanboy heaven!!!

Also, notice that in the window of this picture, Craig has a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle!

Yeah, The Moff's gone crazy this series with showing past Doctor's faces. During the RTD years I think all we got aside from the occasional 9th Doctor flashback was the sequence in The Next Doctor. This year though we got the 1st Doctor in 4 episodes, the 2nd in three, the 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th & 10th in two and the 5th, 6th and 7th in one.
