Smith and Jones

Doctor Who | Season 3 | Smith and Jones

A Judoon platoon on the moon and a vampiric alien! It’s all happening when Martha meets the Doctor.

“Smith and Jones” is the first episode of the third series of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It was first broadcast on BBC One on 31 March 2007. It sees the debut of Freema Agyeman as new companion Martha Jones. Agyeman had previously appeared as Martha’s cousin Adeola in “Army of Ghosts”.

The episode sees the Doctor (David Tennant) meeting Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), a medical student at Royal Hope Hospital. The hospital is transported to the Moon, whereupon the Doctor and Martha must contend with a Plasmavore posing as Florence Finnegan (Anne Reid), as well as the Judoon (voiced by Nicholas Briggs), who are hunting for Finnegan.

The episode was the first to feature Martha’s family, her mother Francine (played by Adjoa Andoh), father Clive (Trevor Laird), sister Tish (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), and brother Leo (Reggie Yates).

The episode was shot mainly in August 2006, with Singleton Hospital and the University of Glamorgan doubling as the fictional Royal Hope Hospital. The Judoon wear prosthetics; for budget reasons only one Judoon is seen to take his helmet off.
