3.0 out of 5 stars the space pirates, 10 Jun 2008
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Resurrection Casket (New Series Adventure 9) (Hardcover)
a prose novel telling an all new doctor who story, featuring david tennant's tenth doctor and his companion rose tyler. as usual with these they can be read by all ages and the book is a self contained story in roughly 250 pages. this one came a couple of years ago when we hadn't seen much of the tenth doctor on screen at the time, but it captures the character perfectly.

the story involves the doctor and rose getting stranded on a world with steam powered technology since more modern things don't work, and getting involved in the hunt for the lost treasure of a legendary space pirate. the setting is well realised and quite original and very stylish. all the characters are much the same, but the book never gets silly or stupid.

The one problem it has it that it takes about a hundred pages to get going, and the nature of the plot and story means younger readers will probably get more out of it than older ones. but stick with it because it does manage some good plot developments and some excellent twists. not a bad book, but could be a little better
