Miss us? Okay, don't answer that. But if you did miss us, just a little bit.. here's our second summer '15 special to hold you over until we're back for good... IN JUST TWO MORE WEEKS! That's right, break out the party gear, because The Oncoming Storm is back baby, August 27! So while you're marking that on your calendar, we have a treat for you here. This week, Josh, Ashley, and Jeff talk to one of the brains behind The Imperium! In case you're not aware, The Imperium is a new comic book seeking funding from people like us, people who like the Doctor, or James Bond, or Emma Peel... because you see, it has all of them in one comic book! (Or at least as close that a non IP infringing comic can go) If you've ever read Alan Moore's "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", then you're looking at the 1960's British TV equivalent of it! Needless to say, we here at Oncoming Storm HQ are very excited for this, and we got to sit down with creator Tzvi Lebetkin to talk about the genesis of this project, as well as Tzvi's project that put him on our radar, The Ice Warriors comic strip! Put on your power armor, because you know Ashley's got a lot to say about that! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're shamelessly asking for support! Go Check out The Imperium at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-imperium-pilot--2#/story  You won't regret it!

Hey, we said we'd put in an appearance or two while we were on hiatus! And by popular demand, we're doing a special summer episode, just like DWM used to do back in the day! So what's the reason for getting in from the beach? Why, there just happened to be some monumental news coming out of Big Finish land, and Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff just *had* to talk about it! And as a bonus to round out the episode, we have the Big Finish panel that Josh and Rachel did at the Timegate convention on Sunday morning. (Warning: Sunday morning panels are the worst! Be prepared for hungover brain addled panelists!) It ends up being kind of a Big Finish 101 panel, but hey, at least that means new people are still coming to Big Finish! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got SPOILERS SWEETIE!

On episode 155 of The Oncoming Storm, things are a little bit weird around Oncoming Storm HQ. No, it has nothing to do with this week's story, the New Adventure Sanctuary, by David A McIntee. It has more to do with the fact that on the day of recording, our expected threesome for the night became a duo after Ashley's wife goes into labor two weeks early! It throws off *all* of the carefully laid plans the podcast had this week, but Josh and Rachel do their best to go it alone. They talk news, medieval France, and the best gosh durn Benny showcase since her debut. And what's this crazy talk about a hiatus? Find out, on the season finale of The Oncoming Storm! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a baby! Well, now we do; we didn't when this was recorded. But he had to come out eventually right?

G'Day Mates! Through another shrimp on the barbie, because the Doctor is heading to the Outback of Australia! ... <WHACK> Sorry, sorry. We've 'sacked' the normal description guy. We here at the Oncoming Storm will not tolerate such cliché openings! Yes, this week's story, Dreamtime by Simon A. Forward, does see the Doctor, Ace, and Hex arrive at a floating, Australian city in space. And yes, the story is filled with a ton of Australian accents. But it's about so much more than that! Like mysticism! The mysticism of the Australian Outback. And... bullroarers. Crikey. Forget it. Bring on the Koalas. The Oncoming Storm... oh oh! This time, we've got those alien bird lizard guys again! They're not Australian!

We here at The Oncoming Storm are big fans of the Sportsball! Indeed, there's nothing more that we like to do than sit back with out favorite cocktail, watch the players take to the pitch, throw around the basesball, and score lots of touchdowns! That's why we couldn't be more excited to talk about The Game, by Darin Henry. It's all about the Doctor getting involved in the sport of Naxy, the national sport of the world of Cray. I'm sure it will be a bracing time! There's also some sort of war and William Russell is involved somehow. So throw on your cleats, and let's get down to it! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got the original story River Song was pilfered from. Again.

"Let's Do the Time Warp Again!" Er, well, I guess that applies to any episode since this is podcast about a show about time travel. But this episode is especially warpy! Episode 152 of The Oncoming Storm sees your hosts talking about The Highest Science by Gareth Roberts. Again. But this time it is a bit different. This time it's all about the audio adaptation from Jac Raynor. After 20 years, the Chelonians are finally brought to life! Join Josh, Rachel, and Jeff as they discuss how successful the move to audio is, the brilliance of Sylvester McCoy and Lisa Bowerman, and exactly how they prefer to digest their Who. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a brain with vocal cords! It talks! Kinda annoyingly actually.

Welcome to another episode of The Oncoming Storm! Episode 151 to be exact. And this week... wow. Look at all the news! How long has been since we did news, 3 months? What, it's only been 2 weeks? Are you kidding? Well. alright, Newsapalooza 2015 begins here! Prepare for the some loopy hosts talking almost an hour of news! Oh, and we cover Infinite Requiem by Daniel Blythe. It's just as good as you don't remember. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got... something. I'm sure something happened in this book. But we're buggered if we can remember it.

Anniversaries. They say that after awhile, they're just another day. And here at The Oncoming Storm, we couldn't agree more. That's why in episode 150, Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff waste no time on marking the number of episodes. No one got time for that. So they spend their time instead looking at The Juggernauts by  Scott Alan Woodard. Where to begin with this one? Shall we start with the Doctor? Or how about Mel and her new lease on life? Or maybe Davros? The Daleks? The Mechanoids? What, the Mechanoids? Are you serious? All of this, and a discussion of what's the better flavor of Daleks; with Davros or without? The Oncoming Storm...  This time, we've got soulless corporate stooges! Yeah, I know, it's not that impressive, but we already covered all the cool stuff a few lines ago!

It's been quite the week at Oncoming Storm HQ. There have been funerals, chipped teeth, technical glitches, any number of problems. Oh, and that pesky time scoop. But we don't little things like the Game of Rassilon stop us here at the Oncoming Storm. This week's story on the other hand... Nevertheless, Josh, Jeff, Rachel, and Ashley are here to take through the week's news and talk about The Next Life, by Alan Barnes and Gary Russell. We've come to the end of the Divergent Universe. Will it all be worth it here at the end? What do you think? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Rassilon! Yeah, don't get to excited. He gets shown up by a Frenchman, a talking lizard person, and a dead woman.
