David Tennant To Perform Silver: Return To Treasure Island

Posted at 11:53AM Wednesday 22 Feb 2012

David Tennant has been confirmed as the actor to perform Silver: Return to Treasure Island, written by Sir Andrew Motion, the official audiobook sequel to the Robert Louis Stevenson classic. David Tennant is a perfect match for the book having won numerous Best Actor Awards for his role as the tenth incarnation of The Doctor in Dr Who, appeared in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and played the title role in the acclaimed RSC production of Hamlet.

Author Sir Andrew Motion, a former Poet Laureate and Chair of the Man Booker Prize judges, comments: 'I'm completely delighted David Tennant's reading Silver. I honestly can't think of anyone I'd rather hear do it.'

Dominic White, Head of Publishing and Commerce at W F Howes Ltd (leading Leicestershire based audiobook publisher) comments: 'David Tenant really conveys the thrills of an ocean odyssey. This is the making of a modern classic in spoken word form.'

W F Howes Ltd, audiobook publishers, are creating exclusive downloadable and CD editions for retailers (Whole Story Audiobooks imprint) and libraries (Clipper imprint), released on the 15th March.
