Christie was unconsciously inspired to create the series by a meeting with Donna Noble and the Tenth Doctor in 1926, in which Donna made an anachronistic remark about Miss Marple, a character Christie hadn't created yet. Donna tried to get her to agree on joint copyright for the idea. (TV: The Unicorn and the Wasp)
The Eighth Doctor had a full set of Miss Marples, all of which were signed personally by Agatha Christie. He claimed never to have asked her to sign them. The Doctor told Tianna that when their current predicament was all over, he'd lend her the set—"Just lending, mind"; he wouldn't fully part with his signed copies. (PROSE: The Time Lord's Story)
Behind the scenes Edit
- In The Unicorn and the Wasp, the Doctor makes reference to the first book in the series, Murder at the Vicarage, by summing up their own adventure as Murder at the Vicar's Rage.
- George Gallaccio went on from Doctor Who to produce many television adaptations of Miss Marple stories.
- Miss Marple herself has at various points been played by June Whitfield and Julia McKenzie.
