A set of busts from the Royal Society, used for the scenes in which Charles Darwin (David Tennant) and the pirates attempt to win the grand prize by presenting Polly as their new discovery. The plinths are made of resin and topped with busts of Isaac Newton and Archimedes. The plinths are finished in black and faux-gold paint with white and grey used to replicate the appearance of marble on the Plato bust. Both pieces remain in very good condition with minimal additional wear from use and time spent in storage.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
