The Oncoming Storm Ep 165: Best of 2015!

The Oncoming Storm is back from the holidays! Stuffed full of plumb pudding and turkey, Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff decide that it's not too late to get away with doing a 2015 retrospective. So with that in mind, they've come with their top 5 releases of 2015, the top 5 subjects covered by the show in 2015, and the top 5 things to look forward to in 2016! But before they can get to all of that, there's all the news out from over the holidays, showing us that we're going to have a Master-ful year in 2016. And, of course, there was a little film called Star Wars that came out over the break, and Ashley... and Jeff... and Josh... can't wait to tell you all about it! The Oncoming Storm... This time, this year, we've got River Song. Just a metric ton of River Song. Just give up, accept it, and welcome our new curly headed overlord.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 164: Toy Soldiers

Star Wars Star Wars Star Wars. Star Wars? Star Wars. STAR WARS! <oof> Gimme that! That's enough of that, Ashley! We still have a show to run, one that is NOT Star Wars related! Remember? <ahem> The Oncoming Storm episode 164 sees Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel look at Toy Soldiers, by Paul Leonard. And that's the only thing looked at this week, because some people can't tear their minds from a galaxy far, far away! But we digress. Toy Soldiers sees the Doctor, Benny, Roz, and Chris trying to break up a teddy bear child slavery ring. Oh, yes it is! Kids are being kidnapped to fit in an interstellar war, and, well, its not pretty. Will your hosts enjoy this dark commentary on war, or will it cause them to run for the trenches? The Oncoming Storm... This time we... yeah. Ok. I know... Star Wars.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 162: Zamper, The 4 Doctors, The Eighth Doctor #1

Sorry folks. No witty intro this week. Illness has decimated Oncoming Storm HQ, so just be glad we were able to get this episode out, although it's a day late. Anyway, episode 162 sees Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff talking about New Adventure #40, Zamper by Gareth Roberts. After that, it's comic talk again, with a look at the entire run of The 4 Doctors by Paul Cornell & Neil Edwards, as well as the first issue of The 8th Doctor, by George Mann and Emma Viecelli. We hope you enjoy. Now if you'll excuse me, we're going back to bed. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got the flu.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 161: Doom Coalition, Terra Firma, Thicker Than Water

Hello everyone! Oh shut up. Yes, why are you talking directly to the listeners? Leave him alone, we can break the 4th wall if we want to! SHUT UP, ALL OF YOU! How can we do the introduction to The Oncoming Storm if all of you keep talking over me?!? Sorry, ignore them. Just the previous incarnations of the podcast speaking up in my head. So where were we? Oh yes, this week Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are back to talk about Big Finish's newest box set, Doom Coalition! The 8th Doctor faces off against a new foe, The Eleven, a Time Lord with all of his previous incarnations still living in his head! After that, we go back and see what happened when the 8th Doctor returned from the Divergent Universe in Terra Firma by Joseph Lidster. Finally, we see the brilliant Evelyn Smythe take leave of the TARDIS in Thicker Than Water by Paul Sutton. It's a loaded episode, that's for sure! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got no Star Wars take for a change! That should last all of an episode or two.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 159: The Romance of Crime, Unregenerate!, & The Council of Nicaea

AH-CHOO! Sorry, Sorry, the weather is starting to change here at Oncoming Storm HQ and that means one thing: It's time for everyone to get sick again. Josh, Ashley, and Rachel are the lucky ones. They're still about to talk. Poor Jeff however... the less said the better. But the hosts who are able to make it prop themselves up on Codine and prepare to talk about what they've listened to in September. First up is Unregenerate! by David A. McIntee. Does this story of an insane 7th Doctor being busted out of a peculiar mental hospital deserve the exclamation point? Then it's time for The Council of Nicaea by Caroline Symcox, as Erimem asked the age old question of the Doctor,'Why can't I change the past?'. Wrapping our coverage is our first review of a Big Finish Tom Baker story! It's The Romance of Crime by Gareth Roberts, adapted by John Dorney. Find out how well this adapts the novel and if Tom and Lalla can recapture that old magic! All this and news that will have have you saying, "Yes, More!". The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a nitpicky Josh, a high Ashley, and a Rachel that doesn't like Douglas Adams?!? Say it ain't so!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 158: Original Sin, Big Bang Generation, Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who, and a whole bunch of comics

Computers are a heck of a thing. They're wonderful tools to help us in everyday life... until they're not. Then they're either not working for 2 hours as you try to record a podcast, or trying to take over the world, like in this week's feature New Adventure, Original Sin by Andy Lane. Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff do their best to overcome their computer issues, as well as a week's worth of personal issues, to come together to discuss what they've read in the last month. Too bad none of them have read the same things! They finally get it together enough to have a late night discussion of Original Sin, Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell, The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who, and a mess of Titan Doctor Who comics! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a bunch of tired, brain dead hosts! Do forgive them if they spew nonsense.
