Publisher's Summary

Jon Culshaw reads the brand-new novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure by Douglas Adams.

The hugely powerful Key to Time has been split into six segments, all of which have been disguised and hidden throughout time and space. Now the even more powerful White Guardian wants the Doctor to find the pieces.

With the first segment successfully retrieved, the Doctor, Romana and K9 trace the second segment of the Key to the planet Calufrax. But when they arrive at exactly the right point in space, they find themselves on exactly the wrong planet - Zanak.

Ruled by the mysterious 'Captain', Zanak is a happy and prosperous planet. Mostly. If the mines run out of valuable minerals and gems then the Captain merely announces a New Golden Age, and they fill up again. It's an economic miracle - so obviously something's very wrong.

Duration: 10 hours approx.

    "BY THE SKY DEMON BUY THIS BOOK!"
    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!

    BY THE SKY DEMON BUY THIS BOOK!

    "Must have for Dr Who and Douglas Adams Fans"

    Gripping and original story with the humour you would expect from the Hitchiker series amazing production with all the sound effects including TARDIS but not too overpowering except for perhaps one shooting scheme. Also John Culshaw does a fantastic Tom Baker and really brings it too life with his voice talent! Buy it!
