Cover blurb:
'We'd better find that old Doctor feller and get our hooks into him!'

Seventeenth-century Cornwall — a time when villainous pirates roam the seas searching for treasure while townspeople turn to smuggling, wheeling and dealing in contraband. Into this wild and remote place the TARDIS materializes, and the Doctor and his companions find themselves caught up in the dubious activities of the locals. When the Doctor is unwittingly given a clue to the whereabouts of the treasure, the pirates are determined to extract the information, whatever the cost...

Doctor Who - The Smugglers was written by Brian Hayles, scriptwriter of several other Doctor Who stories, including The Monster of Peladon and The Curse of Peladon; it was the last story but one to feature William Hartnell, the first actor to take the part, in the role of the Doctor.
