Doctor Who The Lost Stories: Paradise 5

Its not often you curse the limits of the audio format but given the costume Peri is given you have to bemoan this adventure arriving in audio only. This could have helped to push up viewing figures just when the show needed it. The extra features explain that this story was originally scheduled for the Trial of a Timelord and some rewrite have been forced; to remove the elements set in the Trial.

Its not a bad story and there is a lot of fun to be had from Peri being turned into a sexy redcoat by the doctor but its not up to the high standards of the last two missing adventures. Still its miles better than Terror of the Vervoids ( the story that replaced it in Trial of a Timelord). I’m sure it would get an extra point on the TV purely for Peri’s thigh high boots.

5/10
