S6(32)E03 – The Curse of the Black Spot – Broadcast Discussion

7th May 2011 • Blog Post by Seb Patrick •

So, it’s an episode immediately following – but not picking up on – that cliffhanger, and immediately preceding one written by Neil Gaiman. Sort of on a hiding to nothing, really, isn’t it? Anyway, let’s put all thoughts of series arcs to one side, and this could still be enjoyable – pirates! Hugh Bonneville! Lily “Flatface” Cole! And if there’s no reference to Jack Sparrow anywhere in the episode, I’ll be very surprised.

As ever (except for last week when we FORGOT), post your chatter below and we’ll have a review proper at some point later in the week.

Seb Patrick once met Paul McGann, who immediately pretended to be Mark McGann. He writes for Den of Geek, BBC America, Film4 and the official Red Dwarf website, among others. He owns over thirty toy Daleks and wishes the Dapol factory tour was still open.
