On March 16th 2014, the world of Doctor Who Spin Off Media lost one if its original pioneers. Steve Moore was one of the first writers to write the Doctor Who comic strips for Doctor Who Weekly. While Doctor Who comic strips were nothing new, the Doctor Who Weekly strips were some of the first serious attempts to write stories that fit into the ongoing continuity of the television show and was written for a more sophisticated audience. The infulence of the material written by Steve Moore cannot be ignored, and he created several fan favorite characters that added to the expanding universe of Doctor Who. In episode 102 of The Oncoming Storm, join Josh and guests Jeff Polier and Alan Siler as they discuss two of Steve Moore's early Doctor Who stories, including the genesis of one of Steve Moore's biggest contributions to Doctor Who, Kroton the Cyberman with a soul! Also, there's a story about an alien witch. It's as crazy as it sounds. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got Meltron! He's awesome. And I'm pretty sure he could beat you to death with his turkey leg.
