Here is Lizo's review of The Unicorn And The Wasp

Gosh, we're already more than halfway through the series. Doesn't time fly when you're having fun? And fun is definitely what this episode is.

After landing in the 1920s, The Doctor and Donna are quickly drawn into sinister goings on at a country house.

People are being killed off one by one - just like they are in the mystery stories by the famous author Agatha Christie, who also happens to be a guest.

A very big wasp
There's a giant wasp somehow involved too.

So The Doctor and Donna team up with Agatha Christie to try and solve the mystery, and find the murderer.

Lots of fun

It must be said, the plot of this episode does get a bit overcomplicated towards the end, but you don't really care because you're laughing so much.

Agatha Christie with the Tardis
This is by far the funniest story so far this series. David Tennant is on great form, helped along by a script that delivers a gag a minute.

And of course Catherine Tate, who's got a strong comedy background, gives a perfect performance too.

So with things looking like they could be getting much darker over the second half of the series, this is just what Doctor Who needs - a story that's sure to put a huge grin on your face for 45 minutes.
