Article roundup 6th-10th May 2011

A fairly typical weekend, with The Curse of the Black Spot getting plenty of reviews in the media, though many seem more concerned with next week's adventure! Overnights were up on last week's Day of the Moon, whose finals were also quite respectable. Meanwhile, Monday saw a report on USA morning programme Today, with anchor Meredith Vierira visiting the Cardiff TARDIS set.
