"To hold in my hand a podcast that contains such power, to know that entertainment on such a scale was my choice... To know that the tiny pressure of my thumb, enough to press play, would start the show... Yes, I would do it! That power would set me up above the gods! AND THROUGH THE ONCOMING STORM EPISODE 118, I SHALL HAVE THAT POWER!"

The middle story of Big Finish's villain trilogy, this story sees the 6th Doctor compete with Davros for the right to... work for an interstellar corporation?!? What is Davros's plan this time? Where are the Daleks? And can the 6th Doctor make it to work on time? Join the discussion on one of Big Finish's masterpeices. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got no Daleks! Wait, really? They chose to actually leave the Daleks out of this? Everyone better atch out for flying swine!

Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Rachel are back in episode 117 of The Oncoming Storm! Or are they? Maybe they just think they are, and they're really ancient beings that have clawed their way back to our universe from the Anti Matter universe. Or maybe they've just been spending too much time thinking about the Big Finish Story Omega, by Nev Fountain. It's the first in a trilogy of stories focusing on some of Doctor Who's most vile villains. What secrets will this story reveal about Gallifrey's most infamous fallen hero? All of this, plus the news coming out of Big Finish's 15th anniversary! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Omega action figures. With lifelike ranting action!

While the world eagerly awaits the debut of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, The Oncoming Storm is only interested the premieres of David Tennant and Matt Smith! In comic form that is. From Titan Comics. Because they were already seen in comic form, but not from Titan Comics. You know what, forget this whole train of thought. Instead, let's focus on episode 116,  where Josh and Ashley are joined by their partner in Doctor Who comics Jeff to discuss the first issues of the 10th and 11th Doctor comics from Titan. After a relatively disappointing last few years of Doctor Who comics, will this be the renaissance your hosts are hoping for, or will they continue to be disappointed? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got two new companions and a giant alien muppet dog! It's as cool as it sounds.

Finally! After all this time, the moment you've been waiting for has arrived! Well, it's the moment Josh has been waiting for, and he doesn't care if anyone else has been waiting for it, because he now gets to talk about The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield on The Oncoming Storm episode 114! Does it live up to all of his wants and desires to return to the days of the New Adventures? Ashley, Rachel, and Sacha will join him to see if this box set is more of a Love and War or a The Pit.

Oooooohhhhh, we are horrible, sniveling podcaster things, who must suffer at the hands of our listeners. Each week, we are treated worse and worse, as the hate crimes against podcasters increase. If you were kind and honorable listeners, you would certainly take the time to listen to episode 112 of The Oncoming Storm, wherein we talk about Flip Flop by one Jonathan Morris. Do you want to perform hate crimes against us? That's what you are doing  by not listening to your miserable, ugly hosts Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Rachel discuss Slithergees, predestination paradoxes, and the sex lives of presidents. We even pander to your base desires and talk about "The Doctor", although it probably makes no difference to you. Take pity upon us, RIGHT NOW, and listen to our humble thoughts... then listen to all 112 episodes again. Just to show you aren't as horrible as us.

The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got two of everybody. That certainly won't get confusing.

Doctor Who. Sherlock Holmes. The Cthulhu Mythos. No, these are not just some of our favorite things at The Oncoming Storm. Well, we mean, they are, but that's not why we're talking about them today. No, today sees Josh, Ashley, and Rachel talking about why may be the greatest crossover ever seen in episode 109! That's right, this week your hosts are discussing All-Consuming Fire by Andy Lane! Witness the Doctor and Holmes in their battle of wits! The consummate pairing of Bernice and Watson! Or if you like a bit of rough, Watson and Ace! It's time to channel our inner Tumblr... on a book that came out almost 20 years before there was such a thing as Wholock! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a human suitcase who can make you spontaneously combust! And that's one of the less crazy things in the book!
