Faction Paradox: Shadow Play | [Lawrence Miles]

Faction Paradox: Shadow Play

PRIMEra: Last thirteen million years. Technology: Military (blatant), limited time-awareness. It’s perhaps unwise to think of the Sontarans as a species, as such. A homunculus breed hatched by the million and engineered for full-engagement warfare, the Sontaran military machine is regarded by many time-active cultures as an “occupational hazard”: a force of nature rather than a race, compelled by duty and genetics to acquire new technologies for its endless war effort. It should be remembered, however, that with the backing of a higher power even the crudest of breeds can become something quite different.

What the Critics Say

“Another great success from Lawrence Miles. This one isn't quite as enjoyable as The Eleven Day Empire, as it has to spend more time getting into the mundanities of the plot instead of dazzling us with the amazing world Lawrence has made, but it's definitely got a lot going for it. Justine continues her transformation into an absolutely frightening hero, Lolita becomes an absolutely loathsome villainess, and certain events happen that are so shocking that I'm still waiting for a resolution to them four discs later. (Let's just say that one of my favourite characters apparently dies, and I'm still waiting to see what happens to them.) But it's a great story, told at lightning pace. And the theme music is great for these audios, by the by... it's a sort of jazzy reinterpretation of the Doctor Who theme, which makes a certain sense for a story that's a sort of post-science fiction reinterpretation of Doctor Who.” (John Seavey)
