What's Up Doc?
Laylora - the Paradise Planet. A world of breath-taking beauty, where peace-loving aboriginals live in harmony with their environment, Or do they? The Doctor & Rose arrive to find that the once-perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing.

The paradise planet has become a death trap as terrifying creatures from ancient legends appear & stalk the land... Is there a connection between the human explorers who have crash-landed & the savage monsters? What secret lies at the heart of the natives' ancient ceremonies? & what price might one human have to pay to save the only home he has ever known? When a planet itself becomes sick, can there be a cure? The Doctor & Rose find themselves in a race against time to find out...

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a great Tenth Doctor story by writer Colin Drake which is set on the planet, Laylora, where event's soon start going horribly as a foreign contagion invades an ecological system bringing about so truly terrifying creatures, this story moves at a cracking pace & contains plenty of clever twists & turns, great moments of suspense & exciting action scenes plus a intriguing puzzle for the Doctor & Rose to solve.

Actor Shaun Dingwall, who played Rose's dad Pete Tyler in the Tv series does do a great job in narrating this audiobook who gives a very clear, concise reading & adds depth to the story's dramatic beats when required.

The supporting characters are well written especially Rez, a human male who arrived on the planet Laylora via escape pod & he adds an enigmatic presence who's seemingly liked by the aborigines of the planet Laylora & brings a intriguing element to the story that balances out the quirky unsure Professor Petra Shulough character who is well written enough by Drake to stop her becoming just another one note character.

Overall, 'The Price Of Paradise' is a solid enjoyable paced adventure that captures the characterization, tone & energy of the new series of Doctor Who & is well worth purchasing for fan's who enjoy these Tenth Doctor audiobooks, a highly recommended listen.

Timelord Rating.
8/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can't really go wrong with the Dr Who audio books. The stories are always interesting and this one in particular had some funny moments with the Dodo adopted by Martha. Definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freema's reading makes this story even better...., 13 Nov. 2007
The Last Dodo: is at last a great story from Jaci Rayner, and is thoroughly enjoyable and has a new fresh setting and imaginative twists and turns all along the way. I do have just the book of this, and even thought he book is the full story, theres just something about listening to Freema Agyeman reading this story that makes this book and even bigger hit. I think she has such a great speaking voice, so soft and easy to hear, not over the top with different voices. Shes great. She should have done the lot of these three stories with Martha in my opinion, but at least she did one. Thats better than nothing! A brilliant buy. And for once the bits left out on the audio arent the essential bits anyway, so its no real loss. In fact, as i said, with Freema its a big gain...

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and simple but an odd premise, 7 Oct. 2009
This is a fairly good book, with plenty of action, locations that are quite simple and easy to visualise, a limited group of characters making it easier to follow the action, and an intriguing mystery that only gets explained fully at the end. I felt a bit let down by the basic premise, that a planet has sentience. It became an accepted premise that led to the action, but was never really explained, but if you suspend your imagination about that, it was a good adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dr is Back, 14 Sept. 2007
The perfect gift for a Dr Who addict. Aimed at the 9 - 11 year age group, although it can be enjoyed by anyone. The books are slightly different to the TV program, being much more mystery, who-done-it rather than, being in imposible situations and escaping.

The Price Of Paradise finds the Dr and Rose on the perfect planet, after following an S.O.S from a crashing spaceship. Full of edge of your seat suspence, this book will leave you guessing right up to the last page. A good present for an 9-12 year old for a birthday or Christmas.
