Cut and pasted from the Radio Times website:

The Doctor and Clara land on a damaged Russian submarine in 1983 as it spirals out of control into the ocean depths. To make matters worse, an alien creature is loose on board, having escaped from a block of Arctic ice - and with tempers flaring and a cargo of nuclear weapons, it's not just the crew but the whole of humanity at stake.

This episode is written by Mark Gatiss.

Sherlock Holmes: Past and Present Conference, 21-22 June 2013, Institute of English Studies, Senate House, University of London

This conference brings together academics, enthusiasts, creative practitioners and popular writers in a shared discussion about the cultural legacy of Sherlock Holmes. Our aims are to celebrate Conan Doyle’s achievement, to explore the reasons behind Holmes’ enduring popularity across different cultures and geographical spaces, and to investigate new directions in Holmes’ afterlife.

This conference will precede Holmes’ 160th birthday in 2014 and launch a new volume of essays on Holmes co-edited by Dr. Jonathan Cranfield and Tom Ue, and form part of the larger celebrations in London and internationally.
