Doctor: "I noticed you. Most people when they don't understand something, they frown. You smile!"
He's ready to tutor her, as long as she's not late in showing up at 6pm every weekday.
Questions that need to be answered:
Why has the Doctor stayed in one place for so long?
Why did he REALLY pick Bill? Even if, at first, he gives the impression he doesn't want her as a companion.
There are six episodes in Part I. "Knock Knock" is like a Vincent Price classic old house horror show. "Oxygen" has a simple premise and great execution.
....episode 1 "The Pilot". Bill notices another student at the Doctor's lectures. It's Moira, who has stars in her eyes. Literally. Riddle: When is a puddle not like a mirror?
....episode 2 "Smile". The Doctor lets Bill pick when and where to go for a little TARDIS jaunt. She picks the future and a planet where Earth created one of its first off-world colonies. Doctor: "They say the settlers have cracked the secret of human happiness." As if to prove it, they are greeted by cute little robots with emoji happy faces. But not all emojis are happy.
....episode 3 "Thin Ice". London, February 4, 1814. The Thames has frozen over and merry Londoners attend a Frost Fair on the ice. It looks like a lot of fun, and the TARDIS has outfitted the Doctor and Bill to fit in with Victorian styles. But the Doctor can't figure out why the TARDIS insisted on bringing them here. Until a child disappears under the ice.
....episode 4 "Knock Knock". Bill and five other students are looking for a house to rent. Budgets are tight, and they aren't having much luck until a man out-of-the-blue asks them, "Forgive me, but are you looking for somewhere to live?" He takes them back to his huge house, with a gate at the driveway, a tower, creaking floors and long staircases. Bill muses, "Why's it so cheap?" But needs must and why question a good thing. Indeed.
....episode 5 "Oxygen". The TARDIS gets a distress call from a mining space station. The Doctor checks the log on the seemingly deserted station, "I've got 36 records of life signs terminated. Last log entry, 'Station declared nonprofitable'."
Nardole: "Yeah, your workers all dying will do that for you."
....episode 6 "Extremis". The Doctor is handicapped. Not everything went well on the mining space station. But that doesn't stop him from answering a plea from the Vatican. A manuscript held in the Library of Forbidden Texts appears to be killing people as soon as they translate it. So naturally, the Doctor decides to translate "Veritas". I can tell you that the title means "Truth". Hmmm, I'm not feeling so well myself.
The first 6 episodes of Season 10 total 275 minutes. The DVD/BluRays present in 16:9 anamorphic with 5.1 surround sound. English subtitles are available on the episodes and the Special Features.
Said Part 1 Special Features are paltry. Maybe more will be offered when, eventually, the Complete Season 10 is issued. Special Features on the DVD/BluRay consist of six "Inside Looks" which total 17 minutes. My cable station offered one-minute-each "Inside Looks" after each episode aired. The TV "Inside Looks" are a little different, as well as shorter, than the DVD/BluRay "Inside Looks". Commentators include Steven Moffat (showrunner), Peter Capaldi (plays the Doctor) and Pearl Mackie (plays Bill). You get clips from the episodes, as well as rehearsals, along with the comments.
From the episode 2 DVD/BluRay "Inside Look": Steven Moffat: "I can exclusively reveal that Jenna Coleman communicates by emojis, which the consequence is that I don't know what she's saying when she texts me. And so I said to Peter, 'Do you emoji Jenna?' And he says, 'I have no idea what she's saying and I just send back random emojis to her.' "
Favorite episode quotes:
Doctor: "I met an emperor made of algae once. He fancied me."
Bill: "That place is a living death trap. We can't just leave it with its mouth open."
Doctor: "Particle physicists and priests. What could scare them both?"
