Pretty dull story. Shame after last week.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

Actually, come to think of it the Doctor could have been on the side of the robots - cute and sentient and only wanting to help. Rather like HAL in 2001, they only want what's for the best, and pesky humans just mess everything up.

Actually they may have a point... :shock: :? :Cyberman:

It started off pretty good, but ran out of steam in the second half. 5

This one put me to sleep twice when I tried to watch it. I got all the way to the end the third time. It didn't make any sense. Gave it a 1 rating.

SONIC FEEDBACK: HERE’S WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF SMILE!
Yes, I’m going to break cover here. Unlike much of fandom, it seems, I actually liked In the Forest of the Night, Frank Cottrell-Boyce’s debut contribution to Doctor Who: it was unusual, looked beautiful, and Peter Capaldi, especially, was superbly alien. Plus, it got me thinking Danny Pink was okay as a character – right until the end, with his “I was a soldier” speech. Oh really, Danny? You’ve never mentioned it before! I just could never understand why Clara would fall for someone so boring.

Still, back to Cottrell-Boyce, because I was pretty enthusiastic about him returning for Series 10. His vision for Who is unlike any one else’s, and in that brand new series, a fresh take was more than welcome.

So did it live up to my hype? Yes, actually. But what about you, our dear DWC readers? Following the episode’s transmission in April, we ran a poll for all of you to take part in, and now, we have the results!

The hate for Smile here and at GB baffles me. It's MUCH better than The Pilot. One story, well told. Beautifully shot, none of the distracting camerawork of Pilot. And, as NuWho goes, not a particularly depressing ending. This is honestly IMO the most underrated ep of S10.

rewatching this for the first time since transmission -
nowhere near as engaging on a character level as The Pilot, and I thought the idea that the robots were so badly programmed that they'd kill everyone was just SILLY, like it had been written by a 10 year old.
Also the walls clearly *weren't* made out of nanobots ;)

The Guardian had some webchatty thang going on with Pearl Mackie, I guess one of the highlights being...

Jessicajessica asks:

What was your funniest moment on set with Peter Capaldi? And were you satisfied with Bill’s ending?

Probably episode two. We were filming a big scene with lots of supporting artists. Peter had this big speech and he'd pressed the reset button and everyone had collapsed. So the SAs were all lying on the floor for quite a long time. And everyone's silent, listening to Peter's big speech. Then suddenly you could hear this sound of snoring. Ridiculous, actual snoring. The guy on the floor didn't even wake up. Someone had to go over and give him a nudge.

I know the feeling. :lol:

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...
