Murder on the Orient Express was a novel written by Agatha Christie. Christie was inadvertently inspired to write the novel by Donna Noble, who met the writer in 1926 and was not aware that it had not been written yet. Although Christie's conscious memories of her adventure with the Tenth Doctor and Donna were lost, the idea remained as a subconscious influence. (TV: The Unicorn and the Wasp)
The Eleventh Doctor sarcastically pointed out to Janet Rutherford that "Notes on the Autonomous Reasoning Center" was as interesting a title as Murder on the Orient Express. (COMIC: The Sound of Our Voices)
