In 1926, Agatha Christie disappeared for 10 days. Was it amnesia? A nervous breakdown? Or a Giant Alien Wasp..?
The Doctor and Donna join forces with the world's most famous crime novelist to encounter a body in the library, poisoned cocktails and a Vespiform seeking revenge.
EPISODE REVIEW - PENDING
In the meantime, off out to Dinner (no "dickie" though), review later but in the meantime... fantastic.
Sparkling plot, sparkling dialogue, sparkling special visual effects, and a cast on sparkling form. And David Tennant's Dad as a "Butler".
Things to look out for...
DOCTOR WHO FOLKLORE
PRODUCTION NOTES In writing the episode, Roberts aimed to make the episode a "big, fun, all-star murder mystery romp".
He was influenced by advice given by Davies, who wanted Roberts to "go funnier" with every draft, and former DOCTOR WHO script editor Douglas Adams' advice that "a danger one runs is that the moment you have anything in the script that's clearly meant to be funny in some way, everybody thinks 'oh well we can do silly voices and silly walks and so on', and I think that's exactly the wrong way to do it".
