Product Description

Responding to a desperate summons from the Doctor's future self, he and Peri find themselves on a sailing ship in 1492, where the crewmen are gripped by superstitious fear. They say the Devil walks among them, stalking and striking them down. Even though they have landed in paradise, they fear that 'El Diablo' himself will drag them over the edge of the world and into the depths of hell. When the Doctor and Peri meet the captain of the ship, they both discover that heroes can sometimes behave un-heroically. Peri's reaction leads her into deep water, and soon the Doctor fears not only for her life but also for the existence of the ship, the paradise island, and the Universe itself...Celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who, a brand new adventure for the Sixth Doctor. Nicola Bryant - Peri in the BBC TV Doctor Who series - and Cameron Stewart perform this original story by Nev Fountain, with music and sound design.

By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Of all the eras in Doctor Who that I’ve studied/witnessed, that of Colin Baker & the Sixth Doctor has been my LEAST favourite. This is not due to Colin himself, as the man is a great actor. Rather…it’s due to the direction that the creative team (of that time) went with the Time Lord and the show.

The Sixth Doctor was perhaps the wildest and most aggressive incarnation ever (proven by his predecessor’s unstable regeneration and his attempts to strangle companion Peri!), and his era was plagued with criticism/backlash from viewers, along with a variety of continuity clashes and various other problems behind-the-scenes. The Doctor’s attire (his infamous coat of MANY colours) certainly seems to alienate a lot of fans.

But while Colin’s tenure may be my least favourite (arguably the worst in all Doctor Who), I still believe that the man was just as worthy as any of his predecessors & successors in being cast the part of the Time Lord. His era DID have its moments, and whether you like it or not, it’s an era that SHOULD be included & honoured in this AWESOME ‘Destiny of the Doctor’ series.

Like the previous chapters, Trouble in Paradise captures the essence of this Doctor’s era; everything from the opening theme music, to the Doctor’s personality/current situation, and puts it on show in a brand-new setting. This time, the Doctor and Peri are on an urgent mission, which takes them to a sailing ship in 1492, where they’re greeted by none other than Christopher Columbus HIMSELF! Alas, it’s one of those meetings for the Doctor where the man BEHIND the legend turns out NOT to be what you’d wished for, and then more problems impede the Doctor & Peri’s quest when the universe is threatened, and a ‘time experiment’ runs amuck in 1492.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Trouble in Paradise 21 Jan 2014
By R. Thomas VINE VOICE
I was completely blown away by this top quality romp, most of the stories in this series have been high quality but more "moody and series." Right from the off the story makes it clear that this is a loud in your face bodacious story. I found myself laughing all the way through and unashamedly give it five stars. Nicola Bryant is on top form - both her 6th and 11th Doctors are very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars If Silurians were cows... 15 Sep 2013
By Alaran
Verified Purchase
Unlike the previous releases in this range, the Eleventh Doctor makes his brief appearance at the outset. Usually he appears during the latter half to offer advice or suggestions. Here is the catalyst for events, recruiting the Sixth Doctor and Peri to find him an omni-paradox. Why he should want such a device is never disclosed within the confines of this audiobook. Hopefully this is a part of a bigger story that will become apparent as the series progresses.

Overall this audio pool is a bit of a mixed bag. There are several good ideas ans storyline elements present but it all seems too heavily borrowed from the Silurians. Much would be interesting ifnitnhadn't all been seen before. The plot is very much a re-hashed mix of concepts surrounding the Silurians/ Sea Devils.

It must take place sometime during the earlier Sixth Doctor television stories as it seems to capture the volatile relationship between the Doctor and Peri when they are still uncertain of each other. It also presents the Sixth Doctor as the quite obnoxious version of him that first appeared on screen. Although this version of the Sixth Doctor is probably more authentic in many ways to represent him in this particular anniversary range I can't help but prefer the more mellowed version of his later television stories or the more mature rendition Colin Baker has provided in various audio plays.

Nicola Bryant delivers an impressive performance throughout; pacey, varied and emotional. She easily re-captures the character of Peri, but this has its drawbacks (at least for me). I always found the false, affected American accent of Peri quite annoying; espcially as Nicola Bryant has quite a pleasant natural voice. It is even more grating in audio form. Obviously the accent is part of the character though.

(Note: Firstly, I'm a big fan of the Sixth Doctor era and of Colin Baker's Doctor but what I've heard here, TROUBLE IN PARADISE, is so disappointing).

Sadly, Nurofen (or Tylenol) should sponsor DOCTOR WHO - DESTINY OF THE DOCTOR: TROUBLE IN PARADISE as by the end of track one you'll need pain relief. And it only gets worse.

The sixth `chapter' of the subtly linked 50th anniversary audiobook series from AUDIOGO in association with BIG FINISH, is truly dull, languid, unintentionally comical and wholly redundant, with only redeeming feature being the ebullient, galloping re-vamped Peter Howell theme music that top-and-tail the single-disc release.

Performed with tone of pastiche and pantomime, TROUBLE IN PARADISE is an assault on the ears that deserves a criminal prosecution and time in the cells to think it over. Retreating to 1984, Nicola Bryant grates uncontrollably (was the audiobook's Producer asleep during the recording..?) as she recreates Peri Brown, whilst Cameron Stewart's dual roles of Christopher Columbus ("...greatest explorer in the world ever...") and a ruminating time traveller known as Bovin (a cow-like creature) are as brash and obsequious as the Sixth Doctor's wardrobe.

However, even Reticulum can be made into a palatable, somewhat tasty Tripe Supper with the addition of overbearing flavours and preparation. The post-production sound treatment is wonderfully evocative of the setting; salt-laden air drying of the wooden floorboards on-board the ocean going vessels leaving them to adjust and creak as they seek purchase against the adjacent oak beams; the relentless kissing of a turquoise sea against the vessel's sides; the calls of rainbow-coloured birds wheeling against a clear blue sky.
