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 try to unravel a terrifying mystery…
After last week’s premiere, the TARDIS is now officially open for business as Bill embarked on her maiden voyage through time and space. Well, this was her proper maiden voyage…
Let’s not forget that she casually visited Australia and the end of the universe in The Pilot, but the Doctor pulled out all of the stops for his new companion in tonight’s adventure as he took her lightyears away to the edge of the galaxy where a picturesque paradise (run by grinning robots, naturally!), was awaiting the arrival of a new human colony of happiness…
Make that grinning killer robots, as the drama escalated very quickly as soon as our heroes found themselves caught up in an escalating mystery of epic, Emoji proportions. But how did you rate the latest episode? Did writer Frank Cottrell Boyce’s return leave a Smile on your face, or was the tale of technological terror a dystopian disappointment? Our episode discussion is now open, so share your reviews and reactions below. Oh, and keep smiling!
