Curse of the Black Spot Teaser

As with The Impossible Astronaut, the BBC have released a teaser to Curse of the Black Spot, featuring guest star Hugh Bonneville with a solemn voice over…

This episode also features actress and model Lily Cole, although you won’t see here in this particular clip:

Bonneville plays pirate Captain Avery, while you might also like to know that Lee Ross of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes , where he played DCI Litton (and more recently appeared in EastEnders) also guests as Boatswain (pronounced “bowsun”, of course).

After the shocks of Day of the Moon, we’re hoping for something to bring the adventures a bit more down to earth for next week. Don’t forget that Curse of the Black Spot – which features Amy Pond as a pirate, cosplay lovers – kicks off at the slightly later 6.15 pm next Saturday, May 7th, on BBC One!
