The Doctor acted like an idiot in The Lodger, he'd spent more than three years living on earth an yet he did seem to know how greet a person. The Lodger was a mess of a story.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"

to the PINNACLE series of Doctor Who books
