Doctor Who (David Tennant) and Donna (Catherine Tate) arrive at a
garden party at Lady Eddison's (Felicity Kendal) estate, where they meet
famed crime author Agatha Christie (Fenella Woolgar) - exactly on the day
on which she is supposed to vanish for 10 days ... and before you know it,
they are all entangled in a murder mystery that invovles a giant wasp, a
notorious jewel thief (Felicity Jones) and an abundance of loose ends -
and at first, neither the Doctor nor Agatha Christie can make heads or
tails of the story ... until they find out the local vicar (Tom
Goodman-Hill) is actually the out-of-wedlock son of Lady Eddison with an
Indian wasp-man who has some strong psychic link to his mother, and when
she read all the Agatha Christie novels, the vicar acted accordingly,
committing a series of murders in either his wasp or his human form. Of
course Agatha and the Doctor can put an end to the wasp-vicar's evil
deeds, but Agatha suffers from a nervous breakdown thereafter, making her
forget the whole affair ... but did she?
To build a
sci-fi-murder mystery around the (real-life) disappearance of one of Great
Britain's greatest crime novelists might sound interesting in theory, but
brought to the screen, the concept works less than fine. It's actually a
clumsy hodgepodge of murder mystery mainstays with some creature feature
motives tagged on for no apparent reason. The fact that the giang
(CGI-)wasp doesn't look at all convincing doesn't help one bit either of
course, and even the occasional inspired oneliner can't save this one. Too
bad, given the interesting premise.
