From the  ‘Ancient Mysteries Solved by SciFi‘ files:

The legend of the mermaid sirens that lured sailors to their doom is an ancient one. We’ve never seen it properly treated in a SciFi show…until now. The Curse of the Black Spot gave us a unique viewpoint on this ancient myth.

Transdimensional mirrors and emergency medical holograms…

Go figure.

Definitely an interesting idea…though there were a few minor holes in the story. For example, a simple cut meant that a person needed medical treatment? really? unless of course the system knew the cut would lead to tetanus or something…
And SUUUUUUUUUUUUREE a 16th century English pirate can pilot a starship yeah…

Beyond that..a really solid episode that made us think and that’s why we watch Doctor Who. It’s a show with great actors and fantastic plots that challenges our conventional ways of thinking with new ideas.
