'Paradoxicide' isn't your typical SF fare. The Doctor and Peri go to investigate a distress call that is being made in Peri's voice and being broadcast from the legendary lost planet of Sendos. Upon their arrival, they are immediately captured and forced to help with a quest to open the armoury that holds weapons of a legendary magnitude. The more I listen to these the more Peri is a revelation, her character has much more warmth and the more I think how woefully underused she was by the writers of the time. Having a better developed companion allows Colin to play off her in a way his overly irritable alien time traveller never seemed able to in his TV escapades.

Paradoxide, the second half hour adventure in this collection, has the Doctor and Peri captured by a matriarchal warrior race with designs on an ancient weapon locked in an armory. Given that the armory is impenetrable they plan to o back in time to acquire it. The result is a fun story that shows the Doctor and Peri at their heroic best. The villains are a little dense as their comeuppance approaches and there are a few other off moments. Still, I found the overall story to be quite enjoyable.

Paradoxicide is well named, as it not only captures the nature of the alleged time paradox of popular science (twaddle though the concept is) as well as demonstrating why paradoxes are not actually possible - as opposed to the predetermination at play in this story.

This is the weakest story here with little to no room within the 30 minutes to make an impact. The acting is fine the material is weak and that is what lets it down more than anything else. The Doctor and Peri are trying to hunt down an armoury on the mysterious planet. But not everything is as it seems. Not the best of the bunch by far.
