Ray Bradbury, author of sci-fi classics such as Fahrenheit 451, The Illustrated Man, and The Martian Chronicles, died yesterday at the age of 91 after a long illness. Bradbury’s work has been adapted into films and TV shows many times over, including episodes of The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He was a great proponent of books and libraries, believing that they allowed those who could not afford formal schooling a chance to educate themselves. His writing heavily influenced the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and he will be greatly missed.
“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” ~Ray Bradbury

But when the TARDIS materializes in a dark, rubbish-filled, rat-infested alley it seems that this particular Paradise has turned into Hell! Pursued by rogue cleaning machines, authoritarian caretakers, and old ladies with strange eating habits, the Doctor and Mel track down the source of the chaos to one mysterious character–the designer of Paradise Towers, the Great Architect himself…
