This episode, we break from our usual format to take a look at the last twelve months in the Doylean universe and make some recommendations of adaptations, events, and publications you may have missed.
Apologies to anyone we have left out. So much happened last
year, it was hard to keep track! If you know of something we have overlooked, please
give it a mention in the comments.

The episode will be released on our YouTube channel in the next
few hours, with closed captions shortly after.
