The Sea Devils:
Episodes 5 and 6 of The Sea Devils, the last two episodes that concluded this story featured Martin Boddey as Parliamentary Private Secretary Walker.
The DVD info text for episode 5 stated that the Parliamentary Private Secretary is an elected politician not a civil servant. I don’t know if the info text writer was addressing a general misperception of what a PPS is or was responding to commentary moderator Andrew Cartmel making this precise mistake in the commentary for this particular episode.
Surely the word “Parliamentary” in the job title is enough for anyone to guess that PPS is a member of Parliament.

From the Doctor Who News Page:
Oliver Elmes has passed away.

Oliver Elmes had designed the Doctor Who logo for the Seventh Doctor era seen in the series between 1987 and 1989.

When Doctor Who took a long break in 1989, the logo that Elmes designed was then used for the New Adventures range of novels that continued the adventures of the Seventh Doctor.

36 x 2 - Day of the Moon:
The concluding episode to The Impossible Astronaut begins three months later in July 1969. In hindsight I guess this was not surprising as the story had to coincide with the Moon landing.
We first see the Doctor as a prisoner in Area 51. Area 51 finally rears its head in a live action episode of Doctor Who.
What a wonderful surprise that the Doctor’s constructed prison happens to be the TARDIS.
The writings on the walls of the orphanage is reminiscent of the Tenth Doctor leaving a message for Sally Sparrow to read in Steven Moffat’s own Blink.
In fact the Tenth Doctor wrote that message in 1969 the same year that Day of the Moon takes place in.
It seemed that River was pretending to be First Lady Pat Nixon. I just seen a picture of Pat Nixon during her time as First Lady and it is plausible that River could pass off as her.
President Nixon travelling in the TARDIS. Never thought that a US President real life or fictional would ever get to do just that.
The aliens are revealed to be the Silence. After hearing about the Silence in the previous season we finally know what they look like. The adjective for the Silence is …err the Silent. It is no wonder they are call that since no one remembers them for anyone to talk about.
Two William Hartnell stories got referenced, the very first story and The Romans.
The Doctor shaking hands with President Nixon and it brought to mind the real life Nixon shaking hands with Elvis Presley.
Avoiding mentioning how the Nixon presidency comes to an end, I thought the Doctor was very generous in saying that no one would ever forget Nixon and also gave the President the hint of his infamous interview with David Frost.
I was saying “Oh my my my…” upon looking at the final scene as it was a complete shocker.

Prequel to 36.3 The Curse of the Black Spot:
http://blogtorwho.blogspot.com/2011/...t-prequel.html

Very eerie summation of events as told by the Captain. Also very fitting eerie music

36 x 3 – The Curse of the Black Spot:
Doctor Who debut from writer Stephen Thompson and director Jeremy Webb.
The Doctor, Amy and Rory gets on a pirate ship which is haunted by a siren.
Hugh Bonneville was very sincere in his portrayal of Captain Henry Avery and it took me sometime to recognize that one of the other pirates was played by Lee Ross. Lee Ross was a regular in Press Gang created by current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and Moffat has finally brought Ross into Doctor Who with this episode.
The Siren as played by Lily Cole was well realized on-screen.
Along with the main plot of this episode we see Amy again having a vision of the Eye-Patch Lady presumably a hint of things to come.
Quite unexpected the switch of scenery from pirate ship to spaceship and a bigger surprise was the revelation of what the Siren actually is.
Despite some fine points I have just made about this episode I was not able to give it a passing mark. Overall it is flat and not something that is worthy of high marks.

I found the trailer for the next episode The Doctor’s Wife to be more enjoyable including the appearance of the Ood!


Broadcasting note:
Not long after the ABC1 broadcast of The Curse of the Black Spot the Seven Network broadcast Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. The Seven Network has been showing the previous Pirates movies as a lead-up to the release of the fourth Pirates movie in cinemas.
I conjecture that the timing of the latest Pirates movie may have influenced the current production team to make their own pirates story in The Curse of the Black Spot. If that is the case then this episode was essentially a rush job which is reflected by its quality.
A further broadcasting note, anyone who decides to watch the repeat of the episode later today on ABC1 followed by tonight’s Merlin episode will find themselves a directorial double as both episodes were directed by Jeremy Webb.
