Sleepers in the Dust was an exclusive-to-audio story from AudioGo featuring the Eleventh Doctor. It was read by Arthur Darvill.

Publisher's summary Edit

The TARDIS touches down on Nadurniss, a planet under quarantine. A joint Nadurni/human mission has recently landed on the planet to survey it for possible re-colonisation. Two millennia have passed since the Nadurni Empire fell at the end of the Prokarian War, and Nadurniss seems to be a lifeless, barren world — but a mysterious illness is infecting the Nadurni, and now the whole team is in danger. The nature of the infection becomes clear when the sickest Nadurni dies and an amorphous creature emerges from its dried-up body. A shambling mound of bacteria, acting as one being — a Prokarian — it has been on the planet all along, sleeping in the dust. As the Prokarians attack, Amy is infected. The Doctor can do nothing to help her — until he realises that the cure could lie in the past. He and Rory must travel back more than 2000 years to try and save her life...
