Doctor Who Vs. The Ruby in the Smoke

Published in 1985, the first book 
in Philip Pullman's Sally Lockhart 
quartet, The Ruby in the Smoke 
was dramatised for BBC1 and was originally broadcast at Christmas 2006.
This period drama is notable for
marking the television debut of
Matt Smith (pictured here as Jim Taylor), and is the first portrayal 
of Victorian heroine Lockhart, by 
Billie Piper. The pair also starred together in the sequel, The Shadow in the North, and Piper's popular ITV 
series, Secret Diary of a Call Girl (both 2007). Pullman's other two novels
in the series remain unadapted for TV.

Date With History: 1926

Exactly 90 years ago today, famous crime novelist, Agatha Christie and her husband, Colonel Archibald Christe quarrelled at their home, Styles, in Sunningdale, Berkshire. 
Archie left to see his mistress, Nancy 
Neele, at Godalming.
 Later that same evening, Agatha disappeared, informing her secretary in 
a letter that she had left for Yorkshire, and 
her car was found abandoned at Silent Pool, near Guildford.
 Despite a public outcry and a massive manhunt, the writer was only identified on Tuesday December 14th, as a guest at the Swan Hydropathic Hotel in Harrogate, 230 
miles away.
 She had registered as 'Mrs. Teresa Neele',
and she never spoke of her disappearance 
ever again. Agatha was then diagnosed with fugue/amnesia, but many contemporary commentators believed she had staged
a publicity stunt, and those missing days remain a mystery worthy of one of
her books.
The author's disappearance was dramatised in the film, Agatha (1979), Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Dalton portrayed the Christies, and in the Doctor Who 
story, The Unicorn and the Wasp (2008), Fenella Woolgar played Agatha.
In the TV biopic, A Life in Pictures (2004) Agatha's psychiatrist concluded that 
her fugue state was genuine.
The Christies divorced in 1928, and Agatha married the archaeologist Max 
Mallowan two years later.
