Trivia

Three versions of the Cybermat were made. The first was simply a "stunt double" which did not have teeth and was meant for being thrown around or laid still. The second was a cable-controlled "close-up" version that had teeth and thrashed, and was used for when the characters handled it. The third was radio-controlled to dash along the floor. See more »

Goofs

24:30 minutes into the episode, the Doctor is holding the baby facing the camera and so is the baby. When suddenly going into close-up shot the baby is backwards facing away from the camera and we only see the back of his head. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: [playing with a remote controlled toy helicopter] It goes up, tiddly up! It goes down, tiddly down! For only £49.99, which I think personally is a bit steep. But then again, it's your parents' cash, and they'll only waste it on boring stuff like lamps and vegetables. YAWN!

Craig Returns! (Unfortunately)
24 January 2019 | by rustydalekSee all my reviews

While The Lodger was an amusing, if a little uninteresting, this episode is a complete waste of time. The villains are misused and wasted, the humor fails as often as not, and James Corden overstays his welcome. Even Matt Smith can't save this tiresome little episode.
