    This is a fifth Doctor adventure with Nyssa as his companion and is #44 in the Big Finish main range.Another one in which the audio series play with the nature of the story-telling itself. The story starts in media res and jumps around a fair bit as the Doctor and Nyssa get stuck in a story of a world devastated by toxic mutagenic pollution where the sentient inhabitants are facing extinction in the next few generations. There's a confusing plot where the Doctor and Nyssa are interrogated becaus [...]

    A nice Briggs story that doesn't feature a big Monster like the Daleks or the Cybermen for a change not the best 4/10

    Instantly Nick Briggs moves from solidly competant to brilliant. I don't know what happened in between "Embrace the Darkness" and this, but "Creatures of Beauty is a small masterpiece.To say too much, given the narrative twists of this piece would be a mistake, but suffice to say that the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa find themselves on a planet just on the verge of interplanetary travel, but that may be dying before they get there. And yet somehow the people coming out of Lady Forlean's estate seem he [...]

    I really liked this one. A disjoined story, with a mystery and a warning that you really had to pay attention to. I love listening to Nyssa on audio and she was very good in this one. Definitely one to listen to again.

    One of the darker, more serious Doctor Who stories! It does take a while to get use to the shuffeled timeline, but in the end in all make sense, and it is one of those stories, wher eknowing the end only makes you want to start all over right away!

    One of the best of the early Big Finish stories. The non-linear narrative opens in media res, with Nyssa having been arrested for murder on a world dying from an ecological disaster. As the details of the story are filled in, we learn that the poison in the atmosphere has resulted in four generations of physical disfigurement of the populace, yet a handful of people seek a form of cosmetic surgery to regain their original appearance. But that's just the bare framework into which the Doctor and N [...]

    The story to this is pretty decent, but it just doesn't get pulled off well. The story is shuffled chronologically, obviously to build suspense and such, but it's done poorly. In parts it gets pretty confusing as to what's going on. Further exacerbating things is that the dialog in the dialog-driven story is terrible. It's very overstated and laden with simplistic exposition. "Don't do that thing. I will have to stop you." "You are doing that thing, I'm stopping you now.""Ouch. You have stopped [...]

    Author Nick Briggs employs an attention-grabbing fractured narrative approach in Creatures of Beauty that might easily have seemed like a gimmick had the story itself proved less engaging. Fortunately the tale, in which an ecological disaster befalls a planet leaving the inhabitants' skin horribly disfigured is interesting and it becomes all the more so for the use of the fractured narrative, allowing us to witness events and only later to decipher their significance.The result is a story that d [...]

    The Doctor and Nyssa land in a garden, get caught up in a murder investigation and some alien interference. This is memorable for the totally non linear way of telling the story. You really have to concentrate to work out when different bits occur. I suspect the story wasnt that good if listened to in the correct order. An experiment, but only listen when you can concentrate on it. A good listen.

    Another experiment in format, with the plot fragmented non-sequentially across the four episodes, so that the crucial contribution of Five and Nyssa to the very beginning of the story only really becomes clear at the end. Very well done.

    Wow. A pearl of the series. The way the story is told in the last third is very strange and unique and GOOD! The ending leaves you just a bit stunned.

    The Fifth Doctor and Nyssa are arrested on a planet generations after an ecological disaster that has led to disfiguring mutations.

    Confusing story or a race that is dying because of an accident by another race. Not bad but hard to follow.
