    with Mott, He's one of the references I don't get.  In his final scene with the Doctor; the Doctor hands him an envelope (with what I'm sure is a winning lottery ticket) and says he never carries money, but he borrowed a bob from Jeff [missed the last name] and Mott's daughter makes a face and covers her mouth.

    Mott's become my favorite grandfather, followed closely by Brian Williams (Rory's father aka Arthur Weasley)

      ..which is slang for one Pound Sterling (quid MAY be derived form the Latin), from Geoff Noble. One pound is the cost of a National Lottery ticket. This is what caused Sylvia Noble to gasp (as that was the name of her late husband); in actuality, the actor who played this part - Howard Attfield - had died in 2007, so HIS future role was re-written for Bernard Cribbins to play as Sylvia's father (and the grandfather of Donna Noble)
