Doctor Who Season 10 continues this week with a brand new episode. Here’s all the info you need to watch “Smile” online.
Reminder: If you need a quick reminder of all things Doctor Who from last week, our Culturess review of Season 10 premiere episode “The Pilot” is this way.
Rejoice, Whovians! The new season of Doctor Who is officially under way! And now the fun can really start. The first episode is over. So we’ve gotten all that messy introductory business out of the way, like meeting the new companion and figuring out how she ends up on the TARDIS. Now we can finally start having proper adventures.
Sure, there’s still that lingering mystery surrounding the whole secret whatever-it-is that Doctor and Nardole have hidden in the university basement. And it looks like the Doctor is planning to ignore it just get right on the whole traveling through time and space thing with Bill. But we’ll get back to it eventually. (You know they’re never going to give us any real answers in the second episode, anyway.)
According to the episode description over at Doctor Who TV, Twelve and Bill’s first trip together goes about as well as such inaugural adventures usually do. Which is to say it gets real weird, real quick.
"In the far future, at the edge of the galaxy, there is a gleaming, perfect city. This brand new human settlement is said to hold the secret of human happiness – but the only smiles the Doctor and Bill can find are on a pile of grinning skulls.Something is alive in the walls, and the emojibots are watching from the shadows, as the Doctor and Bill trying to unravel a terrifying mystery…"
You can watch the trailer for “Smile” below:
Okay, let’s be honest though – the little emojibots are pretty darn adorable. That doubtless means they’re going to turn out to be horrible murder robots by the end of the episode, though. Because that’s how these things always go.
