“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".
While “Smile” was a pretty simple story it did continue along with the classic Who feel to it that “The Pilot” started. I think that has to do with the way they dealing with The Doctor and Bill this series and having it of a more traditional Doctor and companion relationship instead of the Clara Show that we have had previously. So far the new series has gotten off to a good start and I’ve been enjoying it so far unlike the way I felt about Series 9.
