Murder on the Orient Express was a novel written by Agatha Christie. Christie was inadvertently inspired to write the novel by Donna Noble, who met the writer in 1926 and was not aware that it had not been written yet. Although Christie's conscious memories of her adventure with the Tenth Doctor and Donna were lost, the idea remained as a subconscious influence. Donna personally considered it one of the best novels written by Christie. (TV: The Unicorn and the Wasp)
