Wanderers in the 4th Dimension: A Journey Through Doctor Who

Wanderers in the 4th Dimension: The Smugglers and The Tenth Planet

This week we cover Doctor Who story #28, 1966's "The Smugglers", in which the TARDIS crew are caught between the notorious pirate captain Pike and his crew and Cornish smuggler Squire Edwards!  Can they escape this deadly treasure hunt with their lives?  We also cover story #29, William Hartnell's swan song, "The Tenth Planet"!  When the Cybermen arrive at Earth in 1986 to drain all of Earth's energy, the Doctor and his companions must step up to defeat them.  But it will take a terrible toll on the Doctor...

QotW: If you could change the ending on any Doctor Who serial we've watched so far, which one would you change and how?
