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!

You can read what WhovianNet thought of tonight’s episode in our advanced preview here.

NOTE: This discussion will NOT be spoiler monitored so please do not read the comments section if you haven’t seen Smile. You have been warned!

looking-ahead-to-the-master-of-comebacks

…because let’s face it, we’re already excited.

Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat’s final series was already shaping up to be one hell of a rollercoaster ride, but then it was announced that John Simm will be making the master of comebacks when he reprises his role as the renegade Time Lord after 7 years. And thus, the fandom went into overdrive.

He won’t be the only one, either, as he’ll be coming face to face with Michelle Gomez as Missy, who has irresistibly inhabited the part since 2014. Crikey!

But what’s it all about? How is Missy’s predecessor returning? What happened to him after the events of The End of Time, Part Two that led to his regeneration? And what, for the love of all things Mighty Jagrafess, has he got up his sleeves this time round?! Some fans are already speculating that it is he who lies within the elusive vault that the Doctor has sworn to protect, but that might transpire to be someone – or something – else entirely…

We’ve already caught a glimpse of him in the latest trailer, so let us know what you can deduce – if anything – in the comments below, as well as your general theories about his grand return. It’ll be two Masters for the price of one, and the Universe is already shaking.
