Colin Baker on top form again.,
This review is from: Paradise 5 (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories) (Audio CD)
Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant are both at their best in Paradise 5, with a good role for Peri, and Colin giving the kind of strong performance that has made his Doctor such a success on audio. They are well supported on the acting front by a cast that includes the ever excellent Helen Goldwyn (Doctor Who and the Pirates). The story has some surprises, and a strong cliff-hanger surprise at the end of part three. Written by Andy Lane from a first episode script and scene breakdown by P J Hammond, the story does not have the Sapphire and Steel flavour that many may be expecting, and it cannot claim to among the very best concepts within the range, but it is very enjoyable, and has some lovely lines to make a Doctor Who fan smile. And if all that wasn't enough, Peri's outfits for the story include thigh-length boots, suspenders, and for several scenes a bikini. Alas, this is one story for which audio just cannot make up for what might have been! Overall a good Big Finish, well worth its price.
