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 Jeff Polier 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!

Josh and Ashley are back just a week after our last episode in order to make up for the lost week! And if that wasn't dedication enough, Josh struggles through sickness to bring you a new episode, though it does leave him sounding a bit like Harvey Fierstein. This week, your hosts are covering the third and fourth Big Finish Doctor Who adventures. They start off marveling at the work Big Finish put into The Whispers of Terror, by Justin Richards. They end up wondering if The Land of the Dead was hastily put together by a team of chimps working at typewriters. Has anyone ever actually SEEN Stephen Cole? Are your hosts being unkind? Well, Josh probably is, if his Stephen Cole rant is anything to go by. Check out the episode to find out why. The Oncoming Storm... Please nobody ever tell Stephen Cole about this. We swear, we really are nice people.

After a slight delay, Josh and Ashley are back, fighting through spring storms to discuss the final two books in the Timewyrm series. We're tackling Timewyrm: Apocalypse by Nigel Robinson and Timewyrm: Revelation by Paul Cornell. One of these is a fantastic look into the mind of the Doctor, examining his relationship with Ace and his motivations, a book so full of ideas that it takes 70% of the podcast to talk about. The other is Timewyrm: Apocalypse. Join your hosts as they try to wrap their heads around the Doctor's choice in baby names and discuss the motivations of psychotic 8 year olds. The Oncoming Storm... Yes, We would club your head in with a brick if it meant that Paul Cornell would like us.

A Slight Delay

In case anyone is checking out the website and wondering, you've probably figured out by now that there won't be a new episode this week. Ashley's area was hit by some pretty bad storms last week, and as a result his parent's house suffered some major damage. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but there is a lot of clean up and repairs to do. This has left Ashley with not a lot of free time, so we decided to delay the next episode a week. We will be back on the 22nd however! And to show our love for the listeners, we've decided not to delay the following episode so we can get back on schedule. That means two episodes in two weeks! Then we'll be back to our regular schedule. We are sorry for the delay, but we will continue to do our best to maintain a constant schedule for the listeners. Thanks for all the support!

In this episode, Josh and Ashley cover the first two Big Finish Doctor Who release, The Sirens of Time and Phantasmagoria. After some rambling plot summaries (Look, you try to do a Doctor Who story summary in under 3 minutes!), there's discussion about Multi Doctor stories, a rant about Gallifrey, and a debate on the merits of Historical stories. The Oncoming Storm... mumbling our way into your hearts, one story at a time.
