Another in the series of Doctor Who audio plays that star Colin Baker as the Doctor and Nicola Bryant as his companion Peri, bringing to life on CD stories that were written for the show back in the 1980's but which for various reasons never got to screen.

Paradise 5 sees the time travellers go to visit an old friend, only to find he's gone to paradise 5, a space station that functions as a luxurious holiday resort, and then disappeared. The Doctor and Peri head to the station to investigate. The place is run by a man called Gabriel. Little humanoid creatures called Cherubs do the menial work. People are vanishing. And strange creatures are being seen.

Can the Doctor and Peri find the secret of Paradise 5?

Originally written for the 1986 trial of the a timelord season and featuring Bonnie Langford as Mel, the script has been rewritten by another writer to remove all the courtroom scenes that the trial season had, and to add in Peri in place of Mel as Bonnie Langford wasn't available to reprise the role. And they've also created a new opening episode that makes the story stand on it's own with no need for the trial format.

And a very good job they've done of it. Because this story works really well on audio. The plot isn't anything special but all the extra little details of the story are good enough to make you unconcerned about that. Peri spends a lot of time investigating on her own and this allows for her to have some very strong scenes of character. And wear costumes that you can but visualise in your mind's eyes.

Excellent villainy comes the wonderful double act of Alex Macqueen as Gabriel and James D'arcy as his right hand man Michael.

This is the fifth of the productions from Big Finish in which stories written for Colin Baker's sixth Doctor on TV, but were never made, are finally brought to life.

This, for me, has been the highlight of the series so far. The Doctor and Peri are trying to investigate the disappearance of an old friend of the Doctor's, on the luxury holiday resort of Paradise 5, a floating space station. Peri goes undercover as a stewardess, whilst the Doctor creeps around behind the scenes. It is soon clear that all is not well, and something very untoward is happening to the guests.

This story starts off as a decent mystery, and evolves into an entertaining adventure as things start to hot up. There is a decent script, originally intended for the `Trial of a Timelord' season, which works well on audio. The cast members gove it their all, and provide memorable and interesting characters, especially Michael and Gabriel, the two people who run paradise.

THis is an entertaining release, and one that I am glad has seen the light of day at last. Well done Big Finish, more like this please!

2)This story was originally scheduled to be part of season 23's Trial Of A Timelord.

The Sixth Doctor & Peri decide to visit an old friend Professor Albrecht Thompson only to discover he's gone missing & was last seen departing on a shuttle to holiday resort Paradise 5 & hasn't been seen since.

The Doctor & Peri decide to go undercover & do some investigating of there own at the Paradise 5 holiday resort space station that's staffed by The Cherubs.

What is the terrible secrets that lie underneath the White marble & Gold trimmings of Paradise 5, Just what is the story the Cherubs wish to tell? & just who are the Elohim?

Timelord Thoughts.

This is an excellent script by P.J.Hammond who wrote the majority of episode 2 with script notes by P.J.Hammond for the episode's 1,3,4 adapted by Andy Lane that delivers a great mysterious plot & intrigue to whats actually going on at Paradise 5 as the story moves along at a brisk pace that also expands upon a great set of well written characters.
