The Buccaneers
S1
Blackbeard

Wednesday, 19th September 1956


In 1718, Governor Rogers arrives at his new post in the Bahamas. His first job is to clean out the pirates. Rogers first attempts to do this via a royal pardon. Unfortunately, some of the pirates (led by Blackbeard) don't wish to be pardoned.

Enjoyable introduction to the series, with a nicely droll performance by Clunes. Margo's New Yawk accent creeps into his dialogue, though, which can be slightly distracting!

(Character names from the credits, though few are mentioned onscreen).
