Emoji Monsters Invade Doctor Who in Upcoming New Episode

The language of the future is emoji! In the next episode of Doctor Who, The Doctor takes Bill to a spectacular city on a distant planet – but where are all the people? And what’s up with all these robots who communicate with emojis? Check out the trailer below.

As we all know, the language of the emoji can be downright confusing and overly complicated for its own good. More often than not, it’s way too easy to misinterpret a series of pictures if said images contain a variety of meaning depending on the context. In other words, it’s difficult to read between the lines when you don’t even know where the lines are drawn in the first place.

In the case of this Saturday’s all-new episode of Doctor Who, aptly titled “Smile,” not knowing what the emojis are trying to tell you could prove deadly. That’s definitely what happens when the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his new companion Bill (Pearl Mackie) encounter the seemingly cute Emoji-Robots.

Lead writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, teases that the episode includes “a fantastic alien city – among the best we’ve ever had,” “marvelous new monsters,” and that the protagonists will be “surrounded by jeopardy and menace every second…”

Doctor Who “Smile” premieres Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 9/8c, followed by Class at 10:05/9:05c on BBC America.
