Summary Edit

The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams are travelling onboard the Orion Express. Gazing out of the observation windows at the constellation of Orion, the Doctor notices his sonic screwdriver is missing. He is unable to tell which foods at the buffet are edible for humans.

The Doctor is convinced it has been stolen. Sending Amy and Rory to each end of the carriage to ensure no-one leaves, he announces the theft to the passengers. The passengers believe that some form of mystery play is being enacted as the Doctor warns that in the wrong hands his sonic screwdriver could do astronomical damage.

Ruling out passenger contact, the Doctor correctly deduces that the thief is a member of staff and exposes a Daxzian waiter. As the Daxzian tries to escape with the screwdriver, which he intends to sell to the Doctor's enemies, he is floored by Amy, who hurls plates at him with a deadly accuracy as the other passengers cheer and applaud.

Amy mistakes the Doctor's affectionate words of "I don't know what I'd do without you!" as thanks but he was talking about his sonic!

References Edit

  • The constellation of Orion supposedly showing the pattern of the hunter with his club and bow fails to acknowledge that Orion actually had seventeen heads.

Notes Edit

  • The supposedly "light-fingered" Daxzian appears to have varying number of fingers (three, four or five), depending on which frame you examine.
