Laylora — the Paradise Planet. A world of breath-taking beauty, where the peace-loving inhabitants live in harmony with their environment, Or do they? The Doctor and Rose arrive to find that the once perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing. The Paradise Planet has become a death trap as terrifying creatures from ancient legends appear and stalk the land.
Is there a connection between the human explorers who have crash-landed and the savage monsters? What secret lies at the heart of the natives' ancient ceremonies? And what price might one human have to pay to save the only home he has ever known?
Rose notes that, although the TARDIS can translate any spoken or written language for her, it never seemed to want to help her read the Doctor's peculiar script of curves and circles, leaving her unable to decipher where the TARDIS was actually headed.
This is Rose's last novel appearance.
This story was also released as an ebook available from the Amazon Kindle store.
Rose asks if the SOS signal is a mauve alert (amongst other colours), said by the Ninth Doctor to be an intergalactic distress signal. (TV: The Empty Child) (However, the Doctor answers, "Nope, it's not one of those, it's an Intergalactic Mayday", which is an apparent contradiction.)
