Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheStressOfHerRegard'', the novel's "vampires" are actually a form of silicon-based life that had dominated the Earth in the ''very'' distant past, but had gone dormant when organic life became prevalent. They'd still be little more than inert rock, had a bizarre human experiment not managed to revive them.

** The most prominent examples are the Silurians and Sea Devils (both of these names are technically {{Fantastic Slur}}s, the expanded universe uses "Earth Reptiles" and the 21st-century series the taxonomically dubious ''Homo reptilia'' as alternatives), who are terrestrial and aquatic races of an intelligent dinosaur species, from around 300 million BC, who put themselves into suspended animation in fear of a planetary disaster that failed to occur. They appear in the old-school serials "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E2DoctorWhoAndTheSilurians Doctor Who and the Silurians]]", "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E3TheSeaDevils The Sea Devils]]" and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E1WarriorsOfTheDeep Warriors of the Deep]]", and several 21st-century episodes. Various encounters with humans on a large scale have led to tragic results, but in the 21st-century show Madame Vastra, a Silurian LadyOfWar living covertly in Victorian England with her [[InterspeciesRomance human wife]] has become a sympathetic recurring character.

** The revived series does a purer form of this trope with the Silence, [[spoiler:who have secretly ruled Earth "since the wheel and the fire"]], but always went unnoticed because you forget their existence as soon as they leave your field of vision. You don't just forget, but anything they say is treated as a post-hypnotic suggestion, including [[spoiler:"You should kill us on sight" spliced with the footage of the Lunar landing, meaning humans kill the Silence without ever knowing it]]. It was finally revealed that the Silence actually fail to qualify for this, as they are time-travelling humans from the '''far future''', who were biologically altered by a religious cult.
