Doctor Who News: Reports " Smile had an overnight viewing audience of 4.25 million viewers, a share of 22.9% of the total TV audience, according to unofficial figures. "
Lets Get Real:
This episode was not as great as last weeks, the resolution could have been done with a few minutes, not 42 minutes. The Robots were far to small, they were sweet, not really a threat to the Doctor and Bill. It was nice to learn why the Doctor was stuck on Earth, what has he done, and one can guess it was the Time Lords that made him stay on Earth, it would not be the first time. The character of Bill is developing, always questioning the Doctor, the good Doctor has been slow to tell her that he is a Time Lord thus with the right to action when others do not. It was fun to see the colony residents reacts the normal human way, guns first and start firing. The Doctor of course wanted talks, and after getting rid of the threat the Robots started to see the humans as a cash cow, that bit was fun. I am looking forward to the next episode, set in Victorian London.
