Publisher's Summary

Starfall: a world on the edge, where crooks and smugglers hide in the gloomy shadows and modern technology refuses to work. And that includes the TARDIS. The pioneers who used to be drawn by the hope of making a fortune from the mines can find easier picking elsewhere. But they still come... for the romance of it, or old-fashioned organic mining. Or in the hope of finding the lost treasure of Hamlek Glint, scourge of the spaceways, privateer, adventurer, bandit. Will the TARDIS ever work again? Is Glint's lost treasure waiting to be found? And does the fabled Resurrection Casket, the key to eternal life, really exist? With the help of new friends, and to the horror of new enemies, the Doctor and Rose aim to find out.
Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television. Written by Justin Richards. Read by David Tennant. Includes author interview by David Darlington of Doctor Who Magazine.

Critic Reviews

"Tennant tells the story with such energy and feeling... This is a splendid combination of history ¿ a crew of pirates and a search for lost treasure ¿ and science fiction ¿ the pirates are aliens and the treasure will bring, you¿ve guessed it, world domination." ( The Times)

My fav of Tennants narrations

Pirates and Doctor Who, how can you not love that!This is my favorite story of the tales narrated by David Tennant.

Tennant's voice talent really comes into this audio, as there are so many different characters and he does a different voice for every one of them. He will be truly missed on the show! I hope he continues with these narrations, as other past actors who have played the Doctor do.

Highly recommended!

Another Excellent Doctor Who Audiobook

In Doctor Who: The Resurrection Casket, Justin Richards drops The Doctor and his faithful companion Rose into an environment where (with few exceptions) technology more advanced than steam-powered will not work. The resulting low-technology world, and significant suspension of disbelief, provides an excellent backdrop for this re-working of Robert Louis Stevenson's masterpiece Treasure Island.
I found the story highly entertaining and David Tennant's reading flawless. I especially enjoyed the voice selected for Kevin, kind of a cross between the original Marvin from Hitchhikers and Sully from Monsters Inc (huge and apologetic).
If there's a downside with this audiobook (and this one is extremely minor) it's that I now feel compelled to re-read the original story.

Brilliant

This was the first Doctor Who audio book I got. It was gripping. The story is excellent and suitable for all ages. The detail given is perfect, not too much, just the right amount so you can see it clearly in your mind. David Tennant brings the story alive; he does lots of different voices brilliantly. His ?Rose? is just right. You can listen to the story many times and each time get something new from it. This story will get you hooked to Doctor Who audio books, especially those read by David Tennant!
