Well, we tried. We really did. Episode 207 of The Oncoming Storm was supposed to be this epic conclusion to 5 years of discussing the 7th Doctor's new adventures. And it still is, after a fashion. Just with tons of screw ups along the way. It starts out well enough, Josh Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are here, and they get through the news well enough. But then the discussion turns to Lungbarrow by Marc Platt, and Ashley gets timescooped away. And despite our best efforts, we can't get him back. Even when a secondary discussion occurs, the pesky interference stops his voice again! So please forgive us, and try to enjoy the discussions that are there, as we talk about the Doctor's past, his family, and his tear jerking goodbye. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got sentient furniture and mutant killer flowers! Gallifrey is so much cooler than we all thought!

Hey now, has it been a month already? Don't worry, we haven't given up on the show just yet! Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are all back for episode 206 of The Oncoming Storm, and they have stories of cons, games, and wildfires from the month they were out. Once they catch up a month's worth of news, the team turns to the final audio picks of Jeff and Ashley. First up, Jeff picks a sentimental favorite, The Stone Rose by Jacqueline Rayner, as read by David Tennant. An audiobook featuring the 10th Doctor and Rose will surely bring the team together, right? After they recover from that, it's time for Ashley's random hat pick of Wave of Destruction by Justin Richards. Set in the infamous season 17 and featuring the 4th Doctor, Romana, and K-9, will Big Finish be able to capture some of that Douglas Adams magic? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Vardans and talking monkey things! Yeah well, they can't all be winners in the evil monster category.
