Doctor Who: The Curse of the Black Spot - Synopsis

The BBC have published some brief plot details for the third episode in the sixth series of Doctor Who. The episode, titled 'The Curse of the Black Spot', is scripted by Steve Thompson.

The TARDIS is marooned onboard a 17th-century pirate ship whose crew is being attacked by a mysterious and beautiful sea creature, as the time-travelling drama continues.

Becalmed and beset by cabin fever, the pirates have numerous superstitious explanations for the Siren's appearance. The Doctor has other ideas but, as his theories are disproved and every plan of escape is thwarted, he must work to win the trust of the implacable Captain Avery and uncover the truth behind the pirates' supernatural fears – and he must work quickly, for some of his friends have already fallen under the Siren's spell...

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Captain Avery by Hugh Bonneville, Amy by Karen Gillan and Rory by Arthur Darvill.

The story is currently scheduled to be broadcast on BBC One/HD on Saturday, 7th May 2011 at 6.00pm.
