Agatha Christie At The Bottom Of The Sea
30 July 2010 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

A Voyage/Sea version of Agatha Chritie's Seven Little Indians with a group of guests on the Seaview who each get murdered every ten minutes or so. Who is the killer? If you like Agatha Christie you will love this hour, but if you are like me and DON'T give a crap about Agatha...you will struggle with this hour.

This is my least favourite season two Voyage/Sea episode but this season was so strong in so many areas that it was impossible for year two to do a totally poor episode (unlike season one). Death Ship is only just saved by an action-packed-explosive teaser and Death Ship holds the position of being the third last Voyage show ever filmed to feature women (Return Of The Phantom and The Mermaid were the last two).

There is no question that having gals on the sub does change the general tone of a Voyage episode. However, it often makes the series dated as the female clothing/hair styles reveal the 1960s. Whatever your view on gals on the sub, enjoy the girls while you can because they are about to go!
