First thing's first. Always read the contract before you sign it.

Second thing's second. Poirot is in Doctor Who! Eeee!

Yes, David Suchet guest stars in this one, along with a passel of young actors. (I dunno, is 5 a "passel"?) It's written by Mike Bartlett, of whom I've not heard previously, so I had no preconceived notions. So, what did I think, in a spoiler-free kind of way?

At first, I have to admit, I was less than impressed. I don't know, I mean, it was cute, but I felt the characters were ill defined. But, as it got moving, I found myself enjoying it more and more, mainly due to those same characters! (Not to mention wonderful performances from Bill and the Doctor.) It's not the most brilliant work, but it's definitely a fun haunted house story, with a Doctor Who twist. (And much better than "Hide.") I just wish they'd give Nardole more to do!

So, the series continues true to form--decent, fun episodes. Not the most brilliant, but pretty darn fun. There's lots more to say, but it's all spoilerific, so...Comments, as before, are fine for spoilers!

(Wow, these non-spoiler reviews are fun and easy!)

Next week: My wish appears to be granted! It's off to space for the Doctor, Bill, and Nardole, but to live, they'll have to save their.... "Oxygen" by the great Jamie Mathieson! Cannot wait!
