The Eleventh Doctor and Clara visited Baghdad in this year. On the way there, a sandstorm blew them off course and they met Amy Johnson. While the Doctor visited Omar the fez maker, Clara had a conversation with Amy in a hotel. They were pursued by members of the Howling Swarm, who were after the deserter Korgatta, who was hidden in the sandstorm. With the help of Flight Corporal Arnold Bradshaw, Korgatta grew large on the region's abundant oil and natural gas, and kidnapped the Doctor and Omar so that he could use the Doctor's knowledge of interdimensional travel. However, when Arnold realised that Korgatta was a deserter, he went mad and started punching him, making them both crash into an obstacle. Amy and Clara flew in to rescue them, and the Doctor convinced the Prime Mother of the Howling Swarm that Earth must be saved.
