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.
