Doctor Who Season 6 Episode 3: The Curse of the Black Spot

Posted on the 20 May 2011 by Jimblack78
The TARDIS is marooned onboard a 17th-century pirate ship and the Doctor is soon being forced to walk the plank at gunpoint. But things are about to get much, much worse...Beset by terror and cabin fever, the pirates have numerous superstitious explanations for the appearance of a mysterious Siren. The Doctor has other ideas but as every plan of escape is thwarted, he must win the trust of the implacable Captain Avery and uncover the truth behind the pirates' supernatural fears - and he must work quickly because some of his friends have already fallen under the Siren's spell...(from the BBC site)Doctor Who Season 6 Episode 3:  The Curse of the Black Spot
It's time for me to do some catching up.  Another episode has aired since this one appeared.It is obvious that "The Curse of the Black Spot" was done to help pull in fans of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie.  Does that make this a bad episode?  Not necessarily.Any time a pirate gets cut, a black spot appears on their hand.  Shortly thereafter the Siren manifests and takes the pirate.  When the Doctor and his companions (Amy and Rory) arrives he knows that there has to be a logical explanation.  Rory gets cut and the action kicks into high gear.  Amy goes all out to become a pirate and try to save the boys.  She does a good job with the action sequences.Doctor Who Season 6 Episode 3:  The Curse of the Black Spot"Curse" is a more traditional straight forward Doctor Who episode.  Some fans will like it more than the two parter that opened the season.  I liked this one but enjoyed the two parter more.  The storytelling in it was challenging and demanded more from the viewer.  Once again the special effects are fantastic for a television series.  This season has featured some of the best effects.A solid episode that will be followed by "The Doctor's Wife" (the Neil Gaiman scripted story).
