The Doctor and Clara land on a damaged Russian Submarine in 1983 as it spirals out of control into the ocean depths.

An alien creature is loose on board, having escaped from a block of Arctic ice. With tempers flaring and a cargo of nuclear weapons on board, it’s not just the crew but the whole of humanity at stake!
It is the North Pole, in the year 1983. Aboard a Russian submarine, a warning repeats that the "signal is genuine." The Captain and first mate use their keys to prime an ICBM launch. They prepare to fire, but are interrupted by the entrance of the Professor, singing. The Captain reports the drill has been abandoned. The first mate says they must run it again, to which the Captain says, "Tomorrow." The Captain then asks the Professor about the "specimen," wondering if it's a mammoth. In the hold, the crewman in charge of the specimen muses that they are supposed to wait till the crew arrives back in Moscow to thaw the specimen out. However, he uses a blowtorch to thaw the block of ice, until he is grabbed by a claw that emerges from the ice.

Havoc erupts on the submarine, the hull has been breached and crew members are being attacked by a green armoured figure. The TARDIS materialises as the Captain orders the sub to be brought to the surface, The Doctor and Clara are thrown across the bridge and Clara concludes that they are not in Las Vegas, as they expected to be. The Captain asks who they are, while being informed by a crew member that the main turbines aren't responding. The Doctor tells them their only chance to survive is to use the lateral thrusters in order to land on a ridge which will preventing it from dropping further, which the captain then orders the crew to do.

Crew members search the Doctor and Clara, confiscating a number of items from his pockets, including a doll, a ball of yarn and his Sonic Screwdriver, and the TARDIS dematerialises. Clara falls into a puddle after a jolt rocks the sub, temporarily losing consciousness, and wakes up to the Doctor and the Captain arguing. They are interrupted by a raspy noise coming from behind the Doctor, who initially thinks that it's gas, but turns around to find the green armoured figure, which he recognises as an Ice Warrior, who identifies himself as Grand Marshal Skaldak. The professor reveals that Skaldak has likely been sleeping under the ice for five thousand years. Just as the Doctor seems to be close to diffusing the tense situation, Lieutenant Stepashin sneaks up behind Skaldak and electrocutes him with a cattle prod. The Doctor berates the Lieutenant and reveals that it was an extremely bad idea to have done so, and warns the crew to lock up Skaldak.

They chain Skaldak up, and he asks one of the crew if he has been asleep for 5,000 years. The crewman confirms it. Meanwhile, the Doctor tells the Captain and Clara that Skaldak is so feared that his enemies would carve his name into their flesh. The Captain wants to know more, and the Doctor says that there isn't time, before telling him more.

Skaldak signals for his brothers to save him. Back with the Captain, the Professor, the First Mate, and the Doctor, Clara says that she wouldn't make a very good spy as she doesn't speak Russian. The Doctor tries to shush her. Stepashin believes that Skaldak is a Western plot.
