New Series Episode 131:
Sleep No More


In the 38th century, mankind has reached new heights of efficiency thanks to Morpheus, a device which compresses a full night's sleep into minutes. Morpheus is the creation of Rassmussen, a denizen of the Le Verrier space station in orbit around Neptune. When the station goes silent, a rescue team is despatched and encounters the Doctor and Clara. Soon, they are set upon by creatures made up of particulate matter whom Clara dubs Sandmen. The Doctor realises that the Sandmen are the children of the Morpheus process -- and may prove a threat to all of humanity.
