The Unicorn and the Wasp

So, Doctor Who.

surliminal loved it. I think. M is now planning to read some Agatha Christie (suggestions as to where she should start welcome). I thought it was very silly indeed, though on reflection it was very cleverly constructed. Although I've seen some suggestions that the Cluedo references were slight, versions of all six of the Cluedo player characters appear, though one of them is the first victim and one (the cook, who is Mrs White) isn't a suspect. malwen remembered the giant wasp Fontana cover for Death in the Clouds. Like RTD, he appears to have been disappointed to discover that the book did not contain a giant wasp.

Re: 'Subtlety' not in Doctor Who script writer's dictionary shock!

They're even stupid enough to swallow the idea that a woman's reaction when her lover turned into a giant wasp would be: "Take me now!"

"Sting me with your pointy thingy"?

"Buzz in my ear and I'll follow you anywhere."

"Your stinger... it's the biggest one I've ever seen... and it vibrates!"

Oh c'mon. It was FUNNY. It was not, nor intended to be, high art.

(Yes A, I did indeed love it:)

I thought it was very silly, but thoroughly enjoyed it up to the denouement, which relied far too much on TBO, and not enough on actual clues we'd been given...

(I did spot who The Unicorn though, which was nice)

Oh it had to be! But hey you haven't read any Sarah Waters even!
