Dust Breeding

Dust Breeding was the twenty-first monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions, published in 2001. It featured the Seventh Doctor and Ace. It also debuted in audio form the Master voiced by Geoffrey Beevers who had last played the role in The Keeper of Traken in 1981.

Publisher's summary Edit

On nineteenth-century Earth, artist Edvard Munch hears an infinite scream pass through nature. Centuries later, his painting of that Scream hangs in a gallery on the barren dust world Duchamp 331.

Why is there a colony of artists on a planet that is little more than a glorified garage? What is the event that the passengers of the huge, opulent pleasure cruiser 'Gallery' are hoping to see? And what is hidden in the crates that litter the cargo hold?

The Doctor's diary indicates that the painting is about to be destroyed in "mysterious circumstances", and when he and Ace arrive on Duchamp 331, those circumstances are well underway.
