Doctor Who: New Audio CDs - Covers & Info

BBC Audio have revealed the covers and synopsis of two new exclusive Doctor Who audio CDs:

SLEEPERS IN THE DUST - written by Darran Jones, read by Arthur Darvill
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...

SNAKE BITE - written by Scott Handcock, read by Frances Barber
After a lifetime spent working on her secret project, Doctor Elehri Mussurana and her husband, Ernst Wharner, watch in awe as their experiment reaches its final, glorious fruition. A wormhole in time and space is being created… then the unexpected occurs: inside the swirling vortex appears a tall blue box… 

Potential disaster awaits the Doctor, Rory and Amy as the Tardis arrives in a scientific research outpost far into the future just as the fabric of reality is ripped at the seams and the universe tears in two…

Doctor Who: Sleepers in the Dust is on sale from 1st November and Snake Bite from 6th December and at all good CD stores priced £9.25 per copy.
