Doctor Who Liveblog: S05E11 – The Lodger, by Gareth Roberts

I am liveblogging each episode of Doctor Who as I watch it. This is more or less a raw stream of consciousness list of things I am considering and wondering about as I watch. (Sometimes I add links later for reference, but otherwise it’s all exactly what I typed at the time.) In the interest of not spoiling anything for anyone I am putting all of it behind the jump.

This episode is the eleventh episode of [Season Five]( (or Thirty-One depending who you ask), called The Lodger. [BBC Page](

Oh look, England. I’m shocked.
WTF!? He fell out of the TARDIS? Oh crap!
One Day Later?
Weird. I would freak out. I’d probably try to help but I’d freak out a little and call 911 first. Or whatever it is in the UK.
NO! Can’t you hear the music? He’s gonna getcha!
Does he know what it is in the ceiling? He had an odd look on his face.
Pizza booze telly. Hee!
They are an odd match I think.
Yikes. Very much yikes.
Cute postcard on the fridge.
Awwww. He’s adorable. “Dunno if you know…”
You sure about that chief?
What’s in his ear?
Less of a young professional and more like an ancient amateur…
O hai sack o cash!
“I call me the Doctor too.” Heh.
His room? Nice.
A reference from the Archbishop of Canterbury?
Eggs? Huh.
Oh, “phone drone”, I like that.
Is the thing in his ear connected tot he TARDIS somehow?
“You’re weird and you can cook, that’s good enough for me.”
This might be fun.
Oh crap.
That woman has bigger issues, she shouldn’t stop.
Scary big? Oh yikes.
A bowtie are you serious? Tee hee!
Oh good Lord. What on earth is he up to?
NO NO NO don’t go upstairs!! I like you Craig, don’t go upstairs!!
How very Flock of Seagulls, Doctor. (:
He’s gonna fix it with a toothbrush?
Oh Craig. Come on. Do something!
Heh. Football. This should be fun.
Wow it kinda was fun to watch.
Poor Craiggers though.
Now it’s a girl voice?
Oh goodness. I thought there was a glitch in my video!
All 5s? Hrm.
What does she see?
Space? He has no idea what Craig is talking about.
Oh come on Craig! SAY IT!
On switch? Heh.
Craig can’t see the point of much can he?
Lead them down the path, Doctor. Someone’s got to.
What the crap is that thing!?
Seriously, what’s with the rot?
Don’t touch it Craig!
Oh noes! Why didn’t he answer?
Tea right from the pot. Heh. The Royal Wedding. Hee!
I’m glad the Doctor was there to take care of him.
Never worked anywhere. Hahahaha!
Custard cream? Heh.
Sophie Sophie Sophie. Either make a move or call it a day, you can’t wait for him to do it, you are at least that smart aren’t you?
Headbutt eh? I guess that’s one way to do it.
Oh noes! No Sophie! NO NO NO!
So for once he got someone who actually knows who he is? Well. Huh.
Who is this!?
There is no upstairs?
Stop yelling at him Amy!
Geronimo? HAHAHAHA!
Awww. Finally Craig!
Oh noes!
Did the ship leave a crack in the wall?
That was nice of Craig, letting him keep the keys. (:
Hey look a crack.
“Find me a fella?” He shouldn’t have to.
Uh oh…is she going to remember or is it just going to freak her out?

I liked the human element of this one but I wish we’d discovered who’s ship it was and why it was there and such. I like a bit more explanation. I am rather looking forward to the last two episodes. I hope the rest of this one makes more sense after I watch the last two.
