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.

This is the sixth episode in the 11-episode overarcing storyline on the ‘Destiny of the Doctor’. These audio stories were released in 2013 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and feature eleven stories, one for each of the Doctor’s incarnations to that point, as told by one of his companions. These are a bit like the Companion Chronicle stories in that regard, having the tale told and acted by one of the Doctor’s companions, and generally one other main actor. In this case, Nicola Bryant narrates the story, both telling the story, and narrating the Doctor’s part and other parts, as well as acting her own character of Peri Brown, the Doctor’s companion. The other actor featured is Cameron Stewart who does a great job as the rather foppish sounding Admiral Christopher Columbus (‘the greatest explorer in the world’), and also plays the part of ‘El Diablo’ or what the superstitous sailors believe is the Devil.

The year is 1492, and Christopher Columbus has sailed to a new world. The Tardis lands in the hold of the Santa Maria, as the Doctor has been tasked by one of his future selves to carry out a special mission (this is part of the overall 11-story arc of the Destiny of the Doctor storyline). When the Doctor upsets Peri and she is separated from him, things become rather desperate – for everybody.

This is an entertaining story; written by Nev Fountain, there is a good bit of humour and wit in the story, but also a deeper and more serious storyline with cultural and historical ramifications. Nicola Bryant does a great job telling the story and acting the various parts, and Cameron Stewart is great in his parts as well. I liked the way the Admiral narrated the entries in his Journal; very humorous and apt. This is a great addition to the Destiny of the Doctor stories, and I look forward to the next one, featuring the Seventh Doctor.

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.

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.
