Review: Doctor Who: The Resurrection Casket by Justin Richards

Starfall - a world on the edge, where crooks and smugglers hide in the gloomy shadows and modern technology refuses to work. 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 and 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...


This was the unabridged audiobook on CD edition (2 CDs/2 hours).


This one gets six stars. It was a nice, fast story with interesting characters. It wasn't spectacular, and was a bit dark, but it was nice to revisit the Doctor and Rose on their travels. David Tennant did a nice job with the reading.

Rating: ★★★★★☆☆☆

For some reason I could never get into Doctor Who, the book or the TV show. Give me Torchwood anyday!
