The Oncoming Storm Ep 52: Destiny of the Doctor #2 Jumping at Shadows

Normally your hosts, Josh Wilson and Ashley Raburn get along just fine. But in The Oncoming Storm Episode 52, there is dissention in the ranks! Is it over this week's Big Finish/AudioGo story in the Destiny of the Doctor series, Shadow of Death by Simon Guerrier? No, they both seem to really like the story itself. Maybe there is some Doctor Who news that has them in a tizzy? No, it's a pretty light news week. No folks, it's all about some shadows, ones that don't really have a thing to do with this particular story. Once they are able to set aside their differences, there is talk related to the actual story, with praises sung about Frazer Hines, Josh's writer tiers, and the sad lack of Wendy Padbury. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we DON'T have the bloody Vashta Nerada. Seriously. I mean it.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 51: 2nd Doctor 50th Tie Ins - Faith Renewed

The Oncoming Storm is now past the half century mark, and now it's time to return to the monthly 50th Anniversary celebrations with February's ebook and comic... no matter how much your hosts Josh and Ashley may not want to after last month's catastrophes. But now it's Patrick Troughton's turn in the spotlight! First up is issue # 2 of Prisoners of Time, IDW's comic miniseries, featuring the 2nd Doctor facing slavers in a space mall! (It's actually better then it sounds!) Oh, and it has some Ice Warriors in it. (Happy Ashley?) After that, Ashley and Josh look at The Nameless City by Michael Scott. The 2nd Doctor is in McCoy territory, as he and Jamie face the Archons, an evil from the Dawn of Time(tm)! Will these two stories make your hosts change their minds about their respective series? Or does the catastrophe continue? Listen and marvel at the difference a month can make! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a Scotsman in a kilt! We've been to cons, we KNOW that's a big draw!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 50: NA #16 The Beginning of the Bulis Dynasty

It's Bulis-Time on episode 50 of The Oncoming Storm! Love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying that Christopher Bulis left his mark on Doctor Who in the wilderness years, racking up 12(!) books full of trad stories and plots. This week, Ashley and Josh are looking at Bulis's first foray into writing, 1993's Shadowmind. The Doctor, Ace, and Benny are on another vacation... so obviously it must go wrong, with duplicates and gestalt creatures aplenty. Oh and military hardware. Lots and lots of military hardware. Join your hosts as they debate the merits of this debut novel and tell you if it's worth any time at all! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got talking charcoal and telepathic squirrels. Seriously, we can't make this stuff up kids!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 49: BF # 25 More Nazis!

Bad German accents? Torture threats? Complete and utter disregard for companion safety? That can only mean one thing! It's Nazis again, in Episode 49 of The Oncoming Storm! That's right, This week Josh and Ashley are heading back to WWII with Colditz by Steve Lyons. Josh remembers it as one of his favorites of early Big Finish? Does it still hold up, or should it be locked away forever in an inescapable castle? There's talk of David Tennant's accent, alternate timeline clichés, and sweet, lovely Klein. The Oncoming Storm... This time, We've got the 10th Doctor. Well... kinda. If the 10th Doctor were an utter bastard with a naff accent. So hey, it IS the 10th Doctor!
