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?

Terrific Adventure!

I'm a big fan of Doctor Who and the Pertwee years might be my favorite. It was wonderful to find this BBC radio adventure, which is as good as the best TV series adventures.

The story is imaginative and fun and the characterizations are spot on. It's even presented in segments, complete with dramatic clifhangers.

All "Third Doctor" fans will love this adventure.

Pertwee and company only made one other radio adventure and it was a bomb.

New Who

This Who is a whole lot of fun. Excellent production values, direction, acting and writing. I like radio dramas that are made for the radio. I don't like tons and tons of narration. If you have to narrate, you're not doing it right. In fact, zero narration is best for me. That's one reason I heartily recommend this program. It's clever and funny stuff that is done with utter seriousness (the best way to do comedy). I can honestly say that Paradise of Death is my favorite Dr. Who experience. It's a permanent part of my iPod.
