Doctor Who: The Star Beast

Doctor Who: The Star Beast

14th Doctor Novelisation


Jacqueline King reads this brand-new adventure for Doctor Who’s 60th Anniversary, based on a script by Russell T Davies and featuring the Fourteenth Doctor and Donna Noble, as played on TV by David Tennant and Catherine Tate.

A life-changing encounter. A fugitive from the stars. Wrathful warriors in pursuit.

Landing on Earth, the Doctor finds a stranded alien in need of protection – and is dragged headlong into the life of his old friend Donna Noble, knowing that if she ever remembers their time together, she will die…

Jacqueline King, whose plays Sylvia Noble in the BBC TV series, reads Gary Russell’s novelisation of the 2023 television adventure by Russell T Davies.
