The Oncoming Storm Ep 139: NA #33 - Helpful Vacation Tip, Don't Eat the Monkeys

 

<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!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 138: BF #59 - Tibet Redux

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?

The Oncoming Storm Ep 137: BF #58 - OH. MY. GAWD.

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.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 136: Titan 12th Doctor Comics #2 - New Year's Resol-Who-tions

Aaaaand we're back! We do hope you enjoyed your holidays. We certainly did! Refreshed and revitalized, The Oncoming Storm rings in the new year with a new episode that was absolutely, totally, and completely NOT recorded before they took their break. We swear. But regardless, Josh, Ashley, and Jeff are here and they're sharing their Doctor Who related resolutions with the world! Once that's done, your hosts turn their fresh eyes to Titan Comics The 12th Doctor #2. (We're still not sure how to label these things. After all, Titan *is* publishing 4 different series all with the title Doctor Who!) Does this conclusion to the opening 12th Doctor story live up the first part, and will it bring around Jeff to the rest of the team's love of the first issue? Join us as we talk Terrorformer part 2! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a sharknado! Or at least a turtle water spout thingee.
