- Responding to a message on the psychic paper, the Doctor takes Donna to the largest library in the universe, where he meets someone who will feature rather heavily in his future.

- "Solving a murder mystery with Agatha Christie. Brilliant!."

With the Queen of Crime herself by his side, the Doctor is bound to get to the bottom of the case!
