The Oncoming Storm Ep 183: Blood of the Daleks 2, The Runaway Train, 45, Technophobia

It's episode 183 of the Oncoming Storm, and no one's getting along! Josh is definitely not getting along with his computer, as Skype keeps switching his microphone from the nice one to the crappy desktop one. (apologies everyone for the audio quality on this one. It won't happen again) It gets worse once the reviews start, when Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff cannot seem to come to a consensus on ANYTHING. First up, we finally get to Blood of the Daleks part 2 by Steve Lyons, and the Lucie Miller arguments start! Next,  Matt Smith reads The Runaway Train by Oli Smith. And the arguments about format and the Moffat era start! After that, we talk 45, by Mark Morris, Nick Scovell, Mark Michalowski, and Steven Hall. Honestly, we all pretty much agree on the great parts of this one. But finally, it's time to discuss 10th Doctor story Technophobia by Matt Fitton. And you guessed it, the arguments on Tennant and RTD start. It's gonna be one of those episodes. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got waaaaaay too many stories to discuss. Find a comfortable seat before listening.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 182: NA #49 - Death & Diplomacy

In episode 182 of The Oncoming Storm, we not not just 1 host, or 3, or even 4... we have 5 hosts here to accompany you through the halls of Doctor Who spinoff media! Ok, so one of them is a 1 year old who seemingly really doesn't like Doctor Who books based on his reactions, but what can you do? While Ashley tries to wrangle baby Ian, we have the full crew of Josh, Jeff, and Rachel joining him once again, and this week they're looking at all of the foreplay and carnage found in Death & Diplomacy by Dave Stone. There's sex, violence, peace talks, and a wedding proposal within... does that mean it's as crazy as Stone's previous New Adventure? You may be surprised! There's also all the usual news discussion you've come to expect, this week accompanied by a rant from Josh and the fulfillment of a life long dream for Rachel! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we got homicidal smurf things. Haven't we done this before???
