Faction Paradox: A Labyrinth of Histories

Format Compact Disc
Running Time 60 mins
Produced by BBV

Written by Lawrence Miles

Synopsis: It's now acknowledged that the Great Houses were largely responsible for creating the current shape of history, not simply by interfering in major events (although they may have dabbled) but by engineering the entire framework of history as a single definite structure. What's less well-known is just how easy it is to access that structure's foundations.


A Review by John Seavey 28/5/04

More Shuncucker, and it doesn't get any better than this. The "duel" between Justine and Shuncucker, each of whom are able to manifest any possible weapon imaginable, is quite possibly the funniest scene in any Who or Who-related audio, and has a serious claim to trump most of the TV or book sequences as well. "Doomsday device!" "Double doomsday device!" "What exactly is a double doomsday device?" "I don't know, but I've got one!" Oh, dear, I'm laughing just thinking about it. This audio also ties up the story of the breakout from the Homeworld prison planet, the flashback to Justine's first meeting with the Faction, and ends on less of a cliff-hanger than previous installments (although the story is by no means over. Call this the end of the first act.) But most importantly, it continues to have Shuncucker in it, so you all have to go out and buy it right away so you can bask in the glory that is Shuncucker.
