Doctor Who - The Curse of the Black Spot

It looks as though things may go back to normal in Doctor Who land, as we have a regular one-episode story with less of the Doctor dying and more of the swashbuckling pirates. Considering all the questions that were raised over the last two episodes, we're unlikely to get too many answers today, but it could be a more enjoyable episode because of it.

Is this Amy auditioning for Pirates of the Caribbean?

Everything we've seen so far from this episode does look like a direct translation of Pirates of the Caribbean onto the small screen, but when you throw the Doctor into the mix, things are bound to end up a little bit strange, and a little bit hilarious.

Things should get underway at 6:15pm GMT+1 so I expect you to join me in the comments for the third episode of this Doctor Who series.
