The Oncoming Storm, A Doctor Who Spinoff Media Podcast, is brought to you by Mad Norwegian's Josh Wilson and Timegate's Ashley Raburn, along with Sacha Dzuba and Rachel Stewart. The Oncoming Storm exists to inform you about the best and brightest books, audios, comics, etc from the Doctor Who universe! From Big Finish to Virgin Books to Titan Comics... This is the Doctor Who you won't find on television!

Hello again everyone, and welcome to another excitng episode of The Oncoming Storm! Exciting? Yes, exciting! Like that time I played tiddlywinks with Einstein and Newton to decide who was the better scientist! Oh, don't make to big a deal out of it, it's just another Divergent Universe story, so it will probably stink...

 

Oh dear. It appears we've been split into 3 separate aspects of ourselves! That can only mean one thing: This week we're discussing Caerdroia by the fabulous Lloyd Rose. In what has to be the average Tumblr user's wet dream, this story sees not just one, nor two, but 3 Paul McGanns featured in this audio story. Once everyone has calmed down from this but of news, join Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff as they try to figure out if 3 Paul McGanns is better than 1! (Spoilers: What do you think? Duh.) The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got some string. I know, it pales to the McGanns, but it is ever so useful.

We here at The Oncoming Storm can't begin to tell you excited we are for today's story! You see, today, Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are talking about The Last, by Gary Hopkins. We know things haven't been all sunshine and roses for the Big Finish stories lately, what with us being stuck in the Divergent Universe and all. But today, it all ends! With a title like The Last, we've come to the end of the Divergent Universe right? Right? Hello? Sigh. Fine. I guess we'll just do the story where everything dies, except the stupid Divergent Universe. The Oncoming Storm... This Time, we've got Effie from the Hunger Games! But totally crazier.

Oncoming Storm Control to Major Tom. Can you hear us Major Tom? Better fix that radio Major Tom, or you're going to miss episode 144 of The Oncoming Storm! While you're sitting in your tin can, Josh, Ashley, and Jeff are looking at Titan Comics's 11th Doctor issues 3 to 6. This run sees the introduction of not just one, but 2 new companions! One is a tall, white, chameleon -like entity that seems to change his appearance at will. The other is an alien robot named ARC! So grab your protein pills, put your helmet on, and enjoy the show! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got BOWIE. This is not a drill. Prepare for imminent Josh geek out.

So here we are. The grand finale of the three book run of New Adventures seemingly dedicated to pain and suffering! Which is itself really the second part of an actual trilogy! That's right, this week sees The Oncoming Storm tackle Warlock by Andrew Cartmel, in episode 143. After months of reading about the TARDIS crew being punished, tortured, and killed, can Josh, Ashley, and Rachel be able to make it through a book about animal experimentation and personal loss? With the Doctor on the trail of a new drug named Warlock, will your hosts need to resort to drugs themselves to make it through the trippy experiences they're reading about? And most interesting of all, will they realize just how good a book about these things can be, even if the Doctor is hardly in it? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got audio problems! Yeah, Mea Culpa, but hopefully we've figured it out for next time. If it's a problem for you, just take some mind altering drugs. It'll help you fit right in with this episode.

So we're going back to the Divergent Universe eh? On second thought, let's delay that for just a bit. No reason to get overeager for that. Instead, how about we open with an interview? The Oncoming Storm episode 142 sees your hosts communicating through the old fashioned world of the written word with author Jim Mortimore. Find our more about Jim's beginings and upcoming work as we play 20 10 questions! And because we can't delay it any longer, Josh, Ashley, and Jeff look at Faith Stealer by Graham Duff. It's the Doctor vs. religion. Kinda. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Jim Mortimore! A sexy, sexy Jim Mortimore.

It's time for episode 141 of The Oncoming Storm! Josh, Ashley, and Jeff are your hosts this week, and this one is a doozey! They talk about new UNIT adventures, the 6th Doctor's death, new books, Doctor Who Legos... the list just goes on and on. Then, Josh brings you his mini review of the new charity anthology 'Seasons of War'! Whew, what an episode! The Onco- what? You want an actual review as well? Fine, fine. Eventually, your hosts get to discussing Medicinal Purposes, by Robert Ross. It's got the 6th Doctor and Evelyn hanging out with famed killers Burke and Hare. And yes, it's the one with David Tennant going full... well, you know. Anyway, we hope you enjoy it. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got ladies of the night! Of, erm, varying qualities.

Boy. Titan Comics sure likes Doctor Who eh? Soon there will be 4 ongoing monthly titles! How's a podcast supposed to keep up with that? The Oncoming Storm is going to try their best though, so this week's episode sees Josh, Ashley, and JEff looking over issues 3 to 6 of the 10th Doctor comic from Titan Comics. One thing's for sure: everyone loves Elena Casagrande. But what about everything else? Warning: This episode contains what may be the most pedantic, off topic geek debate in Oncoming Storm History! The Oncoming Storm... This time, it's Angels. We've got Angels. Again. Well. Jeff likes 'em at least.

<Burp>! Sorry. Must have been something we ate. All I know now is that our stomachs *really* hurt, and everyone here at The Oncoming Storm is now trying to dive into random pools of water! Troopers that they are though, Josh, Ashley, and Rachel are still here to do episode 139! This week's topic is the New Adventure Parasite by Jim Mortimore. It's one of those Artifact science fiction stories, where The Doctor, Ace, and Benny land on a mysterious alien artifact world that no one understands. Then things go a bit wrong. This book is known for it's violence and horror, but what will your hosts make of it? Everyone seems to like it... but Ashley and Josh seemingly can't agree on anything about it! Listen and find out why. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got 7 limbed alien talking monkeys! Score!

In the mountains of Tibet, an ancient force has awoken and is taking over minds, one by one, to help in it's plan to take over the world. No, The Oncoming Storm isn't changing format to talk about missing stories like The Abominable Snowmen. No, this week, Josh and Ashley, with guests Jeff and Dr. Scott, are looking at that *other* story that takes place in Tibet, The Roof of the World by Adrian Rigelsford. No, No, not the episode of Marco Polo. The Big Finish audio. The one that features the 5th Doctor, Peri, and Erimem fighting an evil from the dawn of time that had been trapped by ancient Egyptians. In Tibet. And in a coincidence that totally have nothing to do with anything related to this week's story, we discuss what you do when you find out an author may not be all you thought they were. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got freeze guns, by way of Peri's ... botany skills?

Vacation is officially over. Despite some timey whimey nonsense leading to a new episode last week. Anyway, this time, The Oncoming Storm is officially in 2015! This means catching up on the news from the last month, then getting back on schedule as Josh, Ashley, Rachel, Jeff, and Dr. Scott look at The Harvest, by Dan Abnett. This futuristic thriller sees the Doctor and Ace face off against some old enemies... and maybe welcome a new friend! We'll let you know just how well the introduction of one Mr. Thomas Hector Schofield goes! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got fleshy parts. Weak, weak fleshy parts.
