Check Out This New Image Gallery for Doctor Who: Smile

We’re just a few hours away from brand-new Doctor Who – and that’s certainly something to Smile about.

The BBC has released a whole batch of images from the episode, featuring Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor and Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts, the latter on her first proper adventure in the TARDIS. Written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce (In the Forest of the Night), Smile promises sinister emojibots, insect-like Vardies, and a lot of stunning architecture. To whet your appetite, indulge in some lovely images, including some familiar faces – Ralph Little (arguably best known for The Royle Family), and Mina Anwar (The Thin Blue Line), who you’ll recognise as Gita Chandra from The Sarah Jane Adventures!

Smile airs on BBC One later today at 7:20pm.
