Publisher's Summary

Anneke Wills reads this exciting novelisation of a classic First Doctor TV adventure set in Cornwall.

On the 17th Century Cornish coast, villainous pirates roam the seas searching for treasure, while the townspeople have turned to smuggling, wheeling and dealing in contraband.

The TARDIS materialises in this wild and remote place and the Doctor and his new companions, Ben and Polly, 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....

Anneke Wills, who played Polly in the BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks's complete and unabridged novelisation of a 1966 TV serial by Brian Hayles, first published by Target Books in 1988.

For fellow Whovians

This story takes place after Susan leaves but still with the first Doctor. Anneke Willis is an outstanding narrator.
