The Doctor Books A Date To Meet Agathe Christie

Filming is currently under way for series 4 of Doctor Who featuring The Doctor (David Tennant) and Donna Noble (Catherine Tate). The start of the new series will see Donna tracking down the Time Lord during an alien emergency in modern-day London. With this filming the BBC have now released their first image of the Doctor and Donna in series 4. This can be seen below.

Also Bad Wolf PR can now reveal that in series 4 the Doctor will finally get the chance to meet Agathe Christie who will be played by Fenella Woolgar. Fenella will be joined by The Good Life actress Felicity Kendal, who will star as Lady Clemency Eddison.

"What a brilliant idea that Agatha Christie and Doctor Who should meet!," noted Matthew Prichard, Agatha Christie's grandson. "Two characters whose contribution to British entertainment is absolutely unrivalled. As far as I know my grandmother, Agatha Christie, never saw Doctor Who, but I am sure she would have been intrigued, excited and above all flattered by all this attention in 2007." Doctor Who's executive producer and head writer, Russell T Davies comments: "Visiting Agatha Christie has been on my wish-list for ages now, and for the Doctor, it's a real meeting of minds! Viewers can expect many more ambitious storylines and a whole host of guest stars in 2008." Blackadder and Notting Hill Actor Tim McInnerny will also guest star later in the series.

It will be interesting to see how the Doctor meets Agatha. For a period in her life she actually went missing, this is documented. She would not tell anyone what she had been doing or where she had been. This seems to be the most likely time, her encounter with the Doctor will occur. I'm not sure which year this was, but it won't be that hard to find out.
