The Smilers are a Doctor Who monster from Steven Moffat’s “THe Beast Below” Doctor Who episode. The Beast Below is Amy Pond’s first trip in the TARDIS and the 11th Doctor’s second episode. The pair travel to Starship UK where the British people search space for a new home.
It’s Amy who encounters the Smilers and learns the terrible truth of the voting booth.
The Smilers look spooky to begin with. Old school puppets/humanoids inside glass booths with fake smiles and blank eyes. Their smile is wide rather than high.
When the Smilers are ready to do damage their heads spin around to reveal a nasty grimace with teeth.
We also know from the Doctor himself, via the Beast Below trailer, that there will be very many smilers!
What do you think? How do you rate the Smilers?
