sounds like potato blight, picture would help. if the blackening is firm and flesh is also black then it is likely to be blight. Though it was not a bad blight year a tunnel would provide an ideal site for blight if it was not ventilated, Small black sooty spots on skin are harmless the result of aphids on upper leaves/
