Doctor Who: The Also People

This Doctor Who novel, written by Ben Aaronovitch, was published by Virgin in November 1995.

‘Just how technologically advanced are they?’ The Doctor frowned. ‘Let me put it this way: they have a non-aggression pact with the Time Lords.’

The Doctor has taken his companions to paradise, or at least the clocest thing he can find. A sun enclosed by an artificial sphere where there is no want, poverty or violence.

While Chris learns to surf, meets a girl and falls in love with a biplane, Roz suspects an alien plot and Bernice considers that a Dyson Sphere needs an archaeologist like a fish needs a five-speed gear box.

Then the peace is shattered by murder. As the suspects proliferate, Bernice realises that even an artifical world has its buried secrets and Roz discovers what she’s always suspected — that every paradise has its snake.
