Review: Doctor Who: Trouble in Paradise

Doctor Who: Trouble in Paradise by Nev Fountain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This wasthe sixth audiobook in a story of 10 not conected stories. Well, the only thing connecting is that is from a different doctor (this was the sixth) and every one of them (at least until now) were contacted by the Eleventh Doctor. At least it seems it's him.

This one involved time travel and it's consequences. Dr who and his companion Peri went back in time to 1492 and appear on the lap of Christopher Columbus and some goat. So, the sixth doctor went back in time to retrieve something called Omniparadox - which makes the story a little odd. So an omniparadox if I understood it's a paradox within another paradox (or two time travelers in the same time)... 

Basically and I am going to ruin this story here so... 

..................................................spoilers alert............................. 

yeah lets go.... So the eleventh doctor warns the sixth doctor to retrieve the omniparadox or else it could destroy the universe(s). So he went and met Columbus which is inconsequential to the story and a Goat/bovine mastermind. Yes. It seems bovines rule the earth a long time ago, but then they were supplanted by humans. That bovine awake several millennia afterwards and stole a time travel device from the future to get to the past. And so, he thought the Indians were killing their bufallo kind so he thought he would help Columbus arrive at America and so white man could destroy the red men instead of bovine men.... (yeah that turn out very good for you oh lord of the bovine). As they are confronting the lord bovine it appears another lord bovine from the future (well it was him but a bit older saying that his plan was absurd because white men indeed killed all red men but also bovine men... meanwhile Columbus tries to kill the doctor (jealousy) and destroyed instead the bovine lord traveling machine making the old bovine lord appear. And so the story as you know ... Columbus discovered America - The red men were killed - The Bovine men were killed and USA appeared - Which made the companion of the Doctor born and join the doctor in his travelling, go to the past and warn the doctor and instead Columbus kill the doctor he destroys the lord bovine travelling machine making him disappear and so Columbus discover america - the red men were killed and.... wait I've said that before haven't I???.... Time travel is very confusing I must say...

In the end, it was a fun quick read and as the previous one or two if you read it as a comedy it will be nice. Butt it's not good. Far from it.
