The Eleventh Doctor once discovered an individual who had apparently died on board a spaceship that crashed on the Fancy in the 17th century, in another dimension. This crew member, referred to as the captain by Henry Avery, caught a human disease and died along with the rest of the crew. The virtual medic on board had no patients to care for, so it took a human form and started taking pirates. (TV: The Curse of the Black Spot)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Although not named in the episode, the alien's shoulder had the abbreviation D.I.H.S. on it, which may be of some relation to either the unnamed ship or the species.
- The Doctor Who Encyclopedia names the individual's species as the "Skerth".
