Corden: The Lodger is “Different”

Doctor Who - The LodgerDigital Spy recently caught up with James Corden to chat about this Saturday’s The Lodger which sees the Gavin and Stacey star/writer appear as Craig Owens, the ordinary man sharing a flat with the Doctor which happens to contain the worlds most malevolent staircase.

Speaking at Soccer Aid training for last Sunday’s UNICEF UK game – which saw an England side of celebrities and former players managed by James Corden and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp lose on penalties to The Rest of the World, with the winner scored by Zombieland actor Woody Harrelson – Corden heaped praise on the show and his co-star flatmate Matt Smith.

“Matts as good an actor as I have worked with to be honest and the whole thing was a joy from start to finish and I feel like it’s a different sort of episode for Doctor Who.

“It isn’t what you’d call like a typical episode of Doctor Who if anything its Doctor Who adjusting to living in our world and that’s what I liked about it.”

Head over to Digital Spy to catch the whole interview. If you are a football fan and you feel in a generous mood after tonight’s game you can still donate to UNICEF UK by clicking here.
