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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "Treasure Island - Doctor Who style"

    Awesome story, really good characters, great adventure. One of my favorites. If you're looking for a fun, quick, exciting Doctor Who classic, this is it. Worth it again and again.

    "David's back"

    Pretty good story, a little predictable at times but enjoyable. Nice to hear Tennant reprise his role for these short stories that feel like two part episodes.

    Story
    "Tennant inhabits the tenth doctor and more!"
    Where does Doctor Who rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I chose this book as my first experience with an audiobook and was greatly satisfied. I believe it was because of a good combination or performance and story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Regarding the story, I liked the directness and simplicity (the book is targeted at children), but still providing a couple of twists and mystery that let you wanting to continue. It also included steam-punk elements that made the setting entertaining.


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    By far, this is the absolute best element of this book. David gives very distinctive and discernible voices to each character, making each identifiable when they're speaking. It's also pure delight listening to the tenth doctor again, with his unique voice inflections and way of saying things.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Tennant's performance particularly moved me. The ending and its twist also got to me.

    Story
    "Unique villains and an always clever doctor"
    What did you love best about Doctor Who?

    I really liked the secondary characters - the villains and ordinary folk - and the world created in this story. I like that Starfall has a necessarily steampunk sort of atmosphere, and the story is creative and well-told. I was disappointed that this author didn't have the knack for conveying all of the 10th Doctor's mannerisms, and he and Rose both fell sort of flat as characters, which would have been very disappointing if not for the overall very good tale.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I kind of had figured it out, but in a way that was fun. Felt a little like I was on an adventure of my own with the Doctor.


    Which character – as performed by David Tennant – was your favorite?

    The Doctor, of course!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    one or two, yeah. It was short and I didn't want to lose the thread of it.

    "Absolutely brilliant story with pirates and great monsters!"

    A pirate story with twist upon twist, monstrous opponents and monstrous friends! I especially liked Rose's role and kind heart. Doctor's character is brilliantly portrayed and of course it was an immense pleasure to listen to David's voice bring it to life.

    "Rose is smarter than all that!"

    Those story was spooky and Tennant was as fabulous a narrator as ever. Would have a been a 5 star listen for me if Rose had had more to do.

    "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!

    "Doctor who, what can i say."

    This doctor who story was great. Its a story of pirates meets scary monster in the future. Having David Tennant read the audio book was great and you think you are watching the series on tv, but you are just listening to the audio book. You will not believe what happens at the end, but you never know what happens at the end because its doctor who. This is my first doctor who audio book and it will not be my last. 5 out of 5 because it keeps you on the edge of your seat. And listen to it all in one listen because you will not be able to turn it off.
