4.0 out of 5 stars If paradise was half as nice..., 25 May 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Price of Paradise (New Series Adventure 12) (Hardcover)
Back cover blurb:
Laylora, the Paradise Planet, is a world of breath-taking beauty, where peace-loving Aboriginals supposedly live in harmony with their environment. Years ago, a human called Rez arrived on the planet as a baby in an escape pod, and was adopted by the native people. The Doctor and Rose arrive to answer a distress signal from a group of scientists, whose ship was shot down, only to find that the once-perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing. Natural disasters are becoming more frequent, and creatures from ancient legends are appearing and attacking people. The Doctor realises that the planet is a perfect equation: When left alone it is a paradise, but when alien objects visit the planet, the equation becomes unbalanced, and the planet causes disasters to try to repair itself. The Doctor realises that to restore paradise, not only will the scientists have to leave, but so will Rez.
Colin Brake's style of writing is both thoughtful and engaging; the twelfth original Tenth Doctor novel from BBC Books is topical, but avoids being too serious or po-faced. It does take a while to get into but once you do you'll have to keep going until you've finished.
