The Buccaneers
S1
Captain Dan Tempest

Wednesday, 3rd October 1956


The star of the show, Robert Shaw, finally arrives in the third episode when pirate Dan Tempest sails into port. He accepts Governor Roger's offer of freedom and starts a new life ashore, much to the jeers of his former fellow pirates.

Not a bad episode, though the sudden conversion of Shaw from pirate to merchant is a little too pat, even for a half-hour show. Tempest and Beamish make a good team, though!
