  1. Doctor Who s10e01 The Pilot
    The Doctor and Nardole have occupied themselves under the guise of a university professor and assistant. Bill Potts is called to the Doctor’s office, where Bill becomes the Doctor’s student. Bill becomes intrigued by a student named Heather. Heather asks her to inspect a puddle, asking her if she can see what’s wrong with her reflection. The Doctor investigates the puddle, and notes that it is not a reflection, but something mimicking them. Bill returns to her flat, and is chased by a moving body of fluid: A living fluid from an alien ship that has absorbed Heather and her feelings for Bill. Bill runs to the Doctor’s office and they flee into the TARDIS. The Doctor moves the TARDIS, where he and Nardole check on a vault they are guarding. The TARDIS lands again in Australia, where the Doctor admits who he is. The fluid follows them to another planet in the future, then through a Dalek battle, but survives. Bill convinces “Heather” to let her go, and it departs. The Doctor and Bill return to his office, where he attempts to wipe Bill’s memories of the day but she stops him. As Bill leaves, she finds the Doctor waiting with the TARDIS.

  2. Doctor Who s10e02 Smile
    The Doctor and Bill arrive on one of Earth’s first colonised planets, Gliese 581d. They are greeted only by two different types of robots: swarm robots (Vardies) and slow but sentient emojibots. An emojibot gives the Doctor and Bill discs that communicate their true emotions. The Doctor theorizes that the planet is awaiting the colonists but soon realizes that the skeletons of a set-up crew have been crushed to feed the plants. Determined to blow up the city, he finds the main ship within it and its engine room, but Bill runs into a child who has awoken from a pod. The colonists were cryogenically frozen, with a few “shepherds” woken early to work. After one shepherd died, the emojibots could not recognise grief and killed all in mourning in an onslaught against sadness. The awakened colonists decide to fight back, but the Doctor wipes the memory of the robots and reboots everything… only humans must now learn to live with the Vardies, the planet’s indigenous species. Then, after the TARDIS returns them to London, the Doctor and Bill discover themselves on a frozen Thames River, an elephant walking towards them on the ice.

  3. Doctor Who s10e03 Thin Ice
    The Doctor and Bill find they have arrived in London in 1814, in the midst of a frost fair on the frozen Thames. The Doctor’s sonic screwdriver is stolen by Spider, an orphan pickpocket led by Kitty. The Doctor and Bill chase down Spider and Kitty away from the fair. There, glowing lights under the ice encircle Spider’s feet and Spider is pulled through the ice. The Doctor and Bill get into diving suits and purposely let the lights take them; they find a giant sea creature ensnared by chains. They learn from Kitty of Lord Sutcliffe; Sutcliffe affirms his family has used the creature to amass a fortune by collecting and selling its waste as a replacement for coal. Sutcliffe sends the Doctor and Bill to be eaten, while he rigs a bomb to cause the ice to shatter. The Doctor and Bill escape, and the Doctor takes the bomb and places it on the creature’s chains. When Sutcliffe sets off the bomb, the creature is freed. They return to the present, where Nardole scolds the Doctor for breaking his oath. While checking the Vault beneath the University, Nardole hears something behind it knock repeatedly.

  4. Doctor Who s10e04 Knock Knock
    Bill and five students sign a contract with a mysterious Landlord to live in his manor house. After helping Bill move her things in, the Doctor becomes suspicious of the nature of the Landlord. A number of the students mysteriously disappear and the group are seperated. The Doctor along with Harry, one of the students, discover a strange cockroach-like creature which the former nicknames “Dryads”. Down in the basement they discover contracts from decades ago. The Landlord discovers them and reveals the whole incident was to keep his daugther, Eliza, alive. Bill and another student Shireen, come across Eliza who reveals herself to be completely wooden. After finding Bill, the Doctor realises that the Landlord is actually Eliza’s son. The Landlord attempts to send the Dryads after the Doctor and Bill, but Eliza manages to control them. She embraces the Landlord as the Dryads consume them. The students are restored to their physical bodies as the house collapses. Back at the University, the Doctor enters the vault to feed their prisoner as piano music echoes from inside.

  5. Doctor Who s10e05 Oxygen
    Nardole accompanies the Doctor and Bill to a space station to answer a distress call. Most of the crew have been killed by their smartsuits, robotic spacesuits capable of independent movement which are the only source of oxygen on the station, forcing the TARDIS crew to don spares. The suits received an order to “deactivate organic components”; some crew survived by being disconnected, but networked suits can transmit the command by touch. Bill’s suit malfunctions, forcing the Doctor to give her his helmet to save her, exposing himself to the vacuum of space, which blinds him; he later leaves her behind to be electrocuted, knowing her suit hasn’t the power for a lethal shock. The algorithm used by the company determined the crew were inefficient and thus too expensive to keep alive. He wires the survivors’ life signs to the station so that if they die it will explode, making it more expensive to kill them, so the suits give over their remaining oxygen. Bill is revived, the Doctor’s eyes are repaired, and the survivors return to their head office to complain. Back at the university, the Doctor reveals to Nardole he is still blind.

  6. Doctor Who s10e06 Extremis
    A long time ago, the Doctor is sent to execute Missy, only to have Nardole interrupt on the behest of River Song. He refuses to kill Missy, instead opting to imprison and guard her for 1000 years. In the present, the Pope comes to the Doctor, asking to help translate a text called “Veritas”. Everyone who has read it has committed suicide, and the Doctor, Nardole, and Bill are brought to the Vatican to investigate. While there, Bill and Nardole discover a portal, which leads them to the Pentagon. They find the portals being projected leading all over the world. The Doctor temporarily restores his sight using Time Lord technology, but is ambushed by aliens. Nardole realizes the projectors are not projecting portals, but the whole world. His realization causes him to dematerialize. Bill finds the Doctor, who tells her the world is a simulation, and Veritas contains the proof. Bill then disappears due to the alien’s intervention, the Doctor realizing this is a test to see if they can conquer the Earth. However, the simulation is too exact, as his sonic sunglasses still work perfectly, and the virtual Doctor sends his information to the real one to warn of the coming invasion.

  7. Doctor Who s10e07 The Pyramid at the End of the World
    The Doctor is called in by the Secretary General of the U.N. after a pyramid mysteriously appears on the strategic border of the Russian, Chinese and U.S. armies. It’s revealed the Monks are responsible for the pyramid and that they have forseen a disaster through their simulations, offering an opportunity to save humanity if they consent to their rule. Elsewhere in a biochemical lab, a scientist accidentally misreads the levels of chemicals in an experiment releasing a deadly biochemical virus. The Secretary General offers his consent, but is killed when he is viewed to be acting out of fear. The Doctor summarises that the disaster was unrelated to war, but may be biochemical. After the Doctor and Nardole locate the lab, Nardole collapses following exposure to the virus whilst waiting in the TARDIS. The Doctor with the assistance of Erica, a lab worker, summarises the only way to stop it would be to destroy the lab. He becomes stuck on the side of a manual lock however, due to his blindless. Bill makes a deal with the Monks to restore The Doctor’s sight despite his protests. He manages to escape but at the expense of handing the planet over to the Monks.
