The Oncoming Storm Ep 123: NA # 29 - Stranger Than Your Typical England

Alright, so The Oncoming Storm is back on schedule. For now. And that means as your second episode of this week, you get more Josh, Ashley, and Rachel action as they talk about Strange England, by Simon Messingham. It's a story of the Doctor, Ace, and Benny visiting a quiet Victorian manor house, and the expected hijinks that ensue.  You'll laugh hysterically as people are eaten by trees. You'll coo over the young girl transmogrified into a horrific spider monster. And don't even get us started on the adorable throat crawling winged insects. You'll enjoy it all, or be violently assimilated back into the program! The Oncoming Storm... This time, what we don't have, is a Ashley Williams. He and that chainsaw hand would have really come in handy in this one.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 122: BF #51 - Iris Worms Her Way Into Our Hearts

So this episode is a tiny bit late. Unless you're listening to this in the future, where the date doesn't matter one bit. But nevertheless, we're all here now and The Oncoming Storm is ready to talk more Big Finish. This week, up for review is The Wormery by Paul Magrs and Stephen Cole. It's a heartwarming tale of the Sixth Doctor, Iris Wildthyme, and the trouble they stir up in a 1930s Berlin speakeasy. There's German soldiers, a vampy vixen, and all the interstellar wormholes. A typical Doctor Who story then. Join Josh, Ashley, and Rachel as they discuss the sparks that fly with Iris and the Sixth Doctor meet, and do a little Iris 101 for the listeners. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we got talking, telepathic Tequila worms. As one does in Doctor Who.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 121: BF #49 - A Dark and Stormy 'Master"-piece

The Oncoming Storm is... very, very tired. It's been a hard couple of weeks at Oncoming Storm; broken air conditioners, smashed toes, a plethora scheduling issues... the list goes on and on. But never fear, for Josh, Ashley, and Rachel are still here to talk about Doctor Who! The Show must go on! This week sees your hosts brave a dark and stormy night to discuss the last of the Villains Trilogy, Master, by Joseph Lidster.  You'll hear talk about the excellent performances, the connections to the New Adventures, and a rambling off topic discussion into the nature of evil in Doctor Who. It's been a loooooong week. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got the Master... in Love!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 120: DWM 8th Doctor 'Endgame' - Toying Around in 1996

In the halcyon days before Dragon*Con happened and wiped out your Oncoming Storm hosts, Josh, Ashley, and Jeff endeavored to record episode 120 of The Oncoming Storm. This week's topic wasn't just any old comic though. It cuts right to the quick of two of your hosts youth in fandom. This week sees a review of the first ever 8th Doctor comic from Doctor Who Magazine, Endgame by Scott Gray and Alan Barnes. It's well before the BBC Books range starts, so it's one of the first times we see the 8th Doctor since his appearance in that ill fated TV movie. Will this comic recapture the McGann magic? Or will we have to suffer through generic Doctor time? Oh, and the Celestial Toymaker shows up too. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got were... foxes? Are those foxes? Werewolves don't make sense, it must be foxes... Right?
