Just a quick note to say that information about the final episodes of the [[Doctor Who Series 5|fifth series]] of Doctor Who is starting to trickle through now. The eleventh episode is said to be called The Lodger, and apparently has The Doctor stranded in present-day London waiting for the TARDIS to return to him.
The Doctor faces his greatest challenge yet – a flat share! People are disappearing on Aickman Road, and the Doctor must solve the mystery of a staircase that people walk up – but never down.
I love the notion of the great time traveler getting stuck on Earth with nothing to do and ending up having to live a normal life – at least for a while.
The story is said to be based on a comic strip that was featured in Doctor Who Magazine (handily compiled by Com Bom here) written by Gareth Roberts. You may remember leaked pictures of [[Matt Smith]] playing football with James Corden earlier this year – those are shots from The Lodger.
If you’re a fan of the show, I’ve created a wiki page for [[The Lodger (Doctor Who episode)|The Lodger]] which you’re welcome to add to if you like.
