Donna: I can't understand you... How many words? One! One word! Shake...milkshake...milk?! No, not milk. Shake, shake, shake?! Cocktail shaker! What do you want, a Harvey Wallbanger?
The Doctor: Harvey Wallbanger?!
Donna: Well, I don't know!
The Doctor: How is "Harvey Wallbanger" one word?!


4/5 from me. I really enjoyed this story. Fun, snappy dialogue, great homages to the mystery genre in general and Christie in specific and a solid cast.

One of my favorites, actually. Mr. Roberts is very clever in layering into the story a number of Agatha Christie novel plot points into the tale, some of them quite subtle. This gets a good 4/5 from me.

An enjoyable romp. Nicely directed by Graeme Harper from a good pastiche script and with an excellent creature in the vespiform. Solid 4/5.
