The Paradox Planet was the third story in the fifth series of The Fourth Doctor Adventures, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Jonathan Morris and featured Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, Lalla Ward as Romana II and John Leeson as K9 Mark II.
It was the first release of a story which continued in Legacy of Death.
Soldiers from the future are attacking the past of their own planet — gathering resources and stealing endangered species. But the past is not without weapons of its own — leaving deadly devices ready to trigger many years ahead after their enemies have been born.
Trapped at opposite ends of a temporal war, the Time Lords have two time zones to save. But who is in the right, and who in the wrong? And when history itself is against you, can anybody actually win?
