Shiver your timbers!,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Resurrection Casket (New Series Adventure 9) (Hardcover)
`The Resurrection Casket' is utterly silly nonsense, but it's also charming, amusing and fun. Blatantly lifting `Treasure Island' (and numerous other pirate clichés) into a science fiction setting this boasts plenty of fun with the Doctor and Rose up against a crew of murderous steam-powered robots and a very unconventional other-dimensional monster. The plot is based around issues of hidden identity (like so many of Richards tales) and most of the plot-twists can be spotted 100 pages away, but this is still enjoyabele. This third 10th Doctor novel is easily the best of the initial batch of three, and indeed the best of Justin Richards three new series novels to date.
