Doctor Who: Prequel to The Curse of the Black Spot review

Prequel to The Curse of the Black SpotPrequel to The Curse of the Black Spot review

Captain: Eight days we’ve been stranded in these waters and still there is no wind to fill our sails.

Doctor Who Season: S32.
Story Number: n/a, though prequel to 215.

90 seconds of mystery on the high seas…

Not much to say about this one, as the Captain’s journal reveals a stranded ship and a monster and not much else. Of interest though is the narrative device of the journal – it’s used regularly to tell pirate stories, ones in novel-form at least.

The filming of the ship is sumptuous.

Next, it’s the actual episode, The Curse of the Black Spot at 6.15pm on BBC One, today.
