Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
The Ravenous are the most relentlessly voracious creatures ever to haunt a Time Lord, and they now have the Doctor's scent. The only thing left to do is stand and fight. It will take a monster to defeat a monster. But what will be the cost?
Seeking respite after their battle with the Ravenous and hoping to find a quiet place where the Eleven can recuperate, the TARDIS crew visit the Still Foundation. But all they find is a small band of survivors under siege from a terrifying predator. A predator that hunts by sound.
4.2 Planet of Dust by Matt Fitton
On the parched world of Parrak, the Master holds sway. But he is exhausted and desperate, and his final hope for survival lies somewhere beneath the desert. When the TARDIS arrives, alliances will be made and trust will be broken – and feuding Time Lords will discover the Ravenous never, ever give up.
The Doctor investigates a mystery in the vortex, Liv follows the trail of their enemy, and Helen searches for a god. Everywhere they go there is a Master or Mistress, but is the Doctor's oldest enemy there to hinder them, or to help? With the TARDIS crew scattered and lost, only a miracle can save the universe. And for that to happen someone is going to have to die.

- The four incarnations of the Master played by Michelle Gomez, Geoffrey Beevers, Eric Roberts and Derek Jacobi appeared in another 2019 box-set, The Diary of River Song: Series Five, but none of them had met each other in that release.
- Day of the Master is the second multi-Master Big Finish audio story, after The Two Masters (2016), which featured Geoffrey Beevers and Alex Macqueen.
- Day of the Master was recorded on 28 February 2019. On the same day, John Dorney reported on the recording of "a dark little scene, done by two brilliant actors", that is "going to upset people". Also, according to Dorney, episode 1 of Day of the Master featured the "best cliffhanger [he] ever [wrote]"
