4.0 out of 5 stars trouble in paradise, 11 Mar 2008
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Price of Paradise (New Series Adventure 12) (Hardcover)
another novel adventure for the tenth doctor who, with his companion rose tyler. like all these it's an original story that runs for approx 248 pages of fairly large print and can be read by all ages. and feels like a story that could have been done on tv.

in this story the doctor and rose visit a strange alien world where the natives live peacefully at one with the planet. but all is not well here as the planet seems to be turning against them, and when a spaceship containing humans on an expedition to the place crash lands more trouble ensues.

can the doctor and rose find out what's causing the trouble and make it a paradise once again?

these books all follow a rather similar pattern in style and page count so with each it's a case of if there's anything to make it stand out. and this does. the planet setting is very well created and the prose really makes you feel like you're in the middle of a lush jungle. all the supporting characters are quite well drawn and have convincing motivations and you can feel for them as a result. the doctor and rose are perfectly characterised and you can imagine billie piper and david tennant saying their lines.

an entertaining read, and a slightly above average entry in this series.
