Publisher's Summary

Doctor Who: The Paradise of Death was the first Doctor Who drama made specifically for radio. Written for BBC Radio 2 by producer Barry Letts to celebrate the Doctor's 30th anniversary, it stars third Doctor Jon Pertwee, reunited with Sarah Jane and the Brigadier, in a dangerous return to Earth.

When a horrific and inexplicable death occurs at Space World, a new theme park on Hampstead Heath, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and UNIT are called in to investigate. The Doctor is highly suspicious. Just who controls the Parakon Corporation, the shadowy organisation behind the running of the park? What is 'Experience Reality'? And what are the limits of its awesome powers?

Loved it!

Feels like a lost story from the Third Doctor's era, right down to the sound effects and music.

Well, that took me back

Great to hear Jon Pertwee again, and in a story that I didn't know. A good yarn, which would have been all.wrong on TV, as the special effects of the time would have been ludicrous. In the imagination, though, they were spot on. Sarah Jane is as much a liability as ever, and the Brigadier was more effective than usual. Good story, mostly good script, good voices. Well worth a listen.

One of the best Dr Who audio stories.

With a whole host of original cast and a wonderfully well written story. Well worth a listen if you are a fan.
