Test Client's Response lacks context/template when using Doctests

When using 'django.test.client.Client' in conjunction with doctests, the response that comes back from the client will be without the 'context' or 'template' variables. This occurs because the 'template_rendered' signal doesn't seem to fire. The doctest code I am using is:
>>> from django.test import Client >>> c = Client() >>> r = c.get('/weather/') >>> r.status_code 200 >>> r.context[-1]['station'].id 1
Without the attached patch, 'r.context' is set to None (via an else case - 'setattr(response, detail, None)' in the Client's request method).
The context/template variables are never set because the 'template_rendered' signal doesn't fire as it has not been imported, thus failing to be connected. This only occurs when using doctests; unittests seem to act differently and aren't affected by this. The attached diff works with both doctests & unittests.
This is not a duplicate of ticket #3051, as these tests are being run from both 'manage.py test' as well as 'manage.py shell'.
