Craig Owens: A teleport? A tele... a teleport... like a beam-me-up teleport, like you see in Star Trek?
The Doctor: Exactly! Someone's been using a beam-me-up Star Trek teleport. Could be disguised as anything.
Craig Owens: A teleport in a shop? That's ridiculous!
[lights flicker in the lift as they teleport out of the shop]
Craig Owens: What was that? Was that the lights again?
The Doctor: [in a high voice] Yes, that's it, that's all, it's the lights.

The Doctor and Craig face the Cybermen
25 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With only one more episode till the series six finale The Doctor is preparing to meet is destiny at Lake Silencio; one of the things he wants to do before dying is pay a visit to old friend Craig; previously seen in 'The Lodger'. He only intends it to be a social call but being The Doctor he ends up finding trouble and he, Craig and baby Alfie, AKA Stormageddon! Find themselves imperilled by a group of Cybermen who are abducting people from a department store to add to their crew.

While Craig isn't as good a companion as Amy Pond James Corden is entertaining in the role at it was amusing when a woman in the shop thought that he and The Doctor were another type of companion! More humour was provided by The Doctor's ability to understand what Craig's baby is saying... this is how he knows that Alfie prefers to be addressed as Stormageddon. The dealings with the Cybermen provided some nice scares although the creepiest moments of the episode took place in the epilogue which featured River Song and Kovarian in a scene which was almost totally unrelated to the rest of the episode but set things up nicely for next week's episode.
