Doctor Who: The Resurrection Casket

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.

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.

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.

    "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!

    "Great narration of an okay story."

    David Tennant brings the Doctor Who characters to life brilliantly. The writing was such that I believed this could have been an actual episode of the tv show and Tennant definitely didn't disappoint. My problem was the story, which just didn't do much for me. Understandable seeing as this is a loose science fiction adaptation of "Treasure Island" and I still haven't been able to get through that book. If you loved Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale and the Doctor Who tv show, this audiobook will be a slam-dunk for you.

    "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.

    "Doctor Steam Punk!"
    What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who the most enjoyable?

    This is one of my favorite Doctor Who audiobooks.
    The steam punk ascetic is super cool and the characters and the threats they face come across as real and important.
    Just the right amont of horror and whimsey you love and expect from Doctor Who.

    Story
    "The Doctor, steampunk, pirates, and you."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's an interesting blend of monster story, Doctor Who, Treasure Island, and steampunk, but it's simply not for me. I loved the monster through. And while David Tennant has an excellent voice and does a great job on the Doctor Who books, his performance felt a bit off to me this time around.


    If you’ve listened to books by Justin Richards before, how does this one compare?

    This is my first of his books. His ideas on composition, mythology, and Doctor Who in the included interview make me want to read more of his works.


    What three words best describe David Tennant’s voice?

    Passionate, expressive, fun.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those "love it or hate it" books. I love Doctor Who, I enjoy watching / listening to David Tennant perform, and I dig a good steampunk tale. But this one just didn't do it for me. It just seemed like some of it was rushed while parts of it lagged on needlessly. And there was a spot or two it felt like the author showed his hand before he was ready to play. I did love the monster however - he's a great character. I just wish he played a larger part.

    "Basically a Doctor Who version of Treasure Island."

    Doctor Who and Rose tag along for an intergalactic version of Treasure Island. As always, I enjoyed David Tennant's narrating.

    "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.
