Doctor Who - Smile Review


Doctor Who
Smile
By 
Frank Cottrell-Boyce

“So, where is everyone? Don't tell me we've come halfway across the universe and they've all gone out. We should've texted first or something.”

When this story was first announced and from what was shown during the trailers I thought this story was going to be really stupid and one of the worst of all time.  Well for Sleep No More and Love and Monsters their title of one of the worst stories ever is still in their possession.  Smile was in fact a very entertaining and enjoyable story.  I never would of thought a story about Emojibots would be entertaining or in that fact good considering the writer is the same that gave us the very forgettable "In the Forest of the Night".

Saturday 6 May

BBC ONE

Knock Knock. 
Written by Mike Bartlett and directed by Bill Anderson.

Bill is moving in with some friends and they’ve found the perfect house - so what if it’s strangely cheap to rent, and the landlord is a little creepy?

The wind blows, the floorboards creak, and the Doctor thinks something is very wrong. What lurks in the strange tower at the heart of the building - and why can’t they find any way to enter it?

The Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, Bill by Pearl Mackie and Nardole by Matt Lucas. David Suchet guest stars at the Landlord.

Please note: a special binaural audio edition of this episode will be available on BBC iPlayer immediately after it is broadcast on TV. This creates a 3D surround sound effect for anyone wearing headphones, placing them at the heart of the action in this nail-biting episode.

Details For Doctor Who - Alien Heart and Dalek Soul


The main range takes a bit of a different turn this month with two stories in one release.  This month features the 5th Doctor and Nyssa played by Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton.  You can buy this release at the Big Finish website. https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/alien-heart-dalek-soul-1254

Alien Heart by Stephen Cole

In the TARDIS, the Doctor and Nyssa stumble across a trail of ten destroyed worlds, all of them obliterated by means of some utterly monstrous but utterly unknown device. The planet Traxana would seem to be next in line to suffer the same fate. But when the TARDIS lands on an outpost on Traxana’s moon, Nyssa is carried away by a tide of giant green arachnoids, leaving the Doctor behind…

And the coming menace is closer than he thinks.

Dalek Soul by Guy Adams

On the Dalek-occupied world of Mojox, a group of rebels is engaged in a futile fightback against the invaders – but at last they’ve found an ally, in the form of the mysterious Doctor. Elsewhere, however, the Daleks’ Chief Virologist is seeking to perfect a biological weapon to wipe out the Mojoxalli, once and for all.

Her name… is Nyssa.
