Where does Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very good adaption of a classic 4th Doctor story. Great follow-up to "City of Death" and "Shada". The previous 2CD release of TPP was the original TV release with additional narration, while the 2017 release is unabridged allowing greater development of characters and expanding upon the original story/screenplay.
Which character – as performed by Jon Culshaw – was your favorite?
All the voice acting was excellent.
Any additional comments?
Actually, I just wished to let fellow fans know that one doesn't have to wait the extra months for this product as it appears to have been available on Audible.com since it was first released in the UK (January 2017). Amazon.com lists it as Jun 2017, so a six month delay for those fans in the US unless you want to spend extra $$ for overseas shipping.... or just get it right away via Audible. :)
Tried leaving a review to that effect on Amazon.com, but as I bought it via "Audible - An Amazon Company" it doesn't actually count as a "verified/valid" Amazon purchase, and such "unverified" reviews are hidden by default. So just deleted that one and tried again here.

I watched the pirate planet this novel had so much more action than the show all whovians will enjoy this novel
Would you listen to Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet again? Why?
Yes I most certainly would. It is very entertaining and I can't help but laugh every other line. The script is very much in Douglas Adams's style. On top of that both The Captain and The Doctor are expertly narrated by Jon Culshaw. You can tell his experience voicing Baker on the comedy show Dead Ringers has come in handy!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet?
One of the most memorable moments? That's a difficult question to answer. I would say my most memorable moment was the sequence between The Doctor and The Captain where The Captain introduces The Doctor to his 'treasure hoard' of sorts. After all..."WHAT'S IT ALL FOR!?"
What about Jon Culshaw’s performance did you like?
Jon Culshaw's performance just oozes comedy and personality throughout the story. You find yourself trying not to laugh at everyone: Keemus's egotistical 'heroics', The Doctor's alien buffoonery, Romana's somewhat childish ice-queen attitude and the entire characters of The Captain and Mr Fibuly!
