The Oncoming Storm Ep 143: NA # 34 - Sex, Drugs, and Vivisection

So here we are. The grand finale of the three book run of New Adventures seemingly dedicated to pain and suffering! Which is itself really the second part of an actual trilogy! That's right, this week sees The Oncoming Storm tackle Warlock by Andrew Cartmel, in episode 143. After months of reading about the TARDIS crew being punished, tortured, and killed, can Josh, Ashley, and Rachel be able to make it through a book about animal experimentation and personal loss? With the Doctor on the trail of a new drug named Warlock, will your hosts need to resort to drugs themselves to make it through the trippy experiences they're reading about? And most interesting of all, will they realize just how good a book about these things can be, even if the Doctor is hardly in it? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got audio problems! Yeah, Mea Culpa, but hopefully we've figured it out for next time. If it's a problem for you, just take some mind altering drugs. It'll help you fit right in with this episode.

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.

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.

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.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 134: BF #57 - Poor Vacation Planning

So. You've just experienced the horrible deaths of a young cabin boy and  the young mother turned vampire you swore to help. You know you're dying but can't tell your traveling companion. It's understandable that you might need a break. Just, whatever you do, don't let the Doctor choose the vacation loca... aww, you let him pick didn't you? That never goes well. In episode 134 of The Oncoming Storm, Josh, Ashley, Rachel, Sacha, and Dr. Scott join the Doctor and Evelyn in Arrangements for War by Paul Sutton. It'll be a nice relaxing trip to a planet we all know will be invaded in a few weeks. But don't worry. The impending royal marriage will seal the union of the mightiest nations on the planet, which will repel the invaders. What could go wrong? But before they make that trip, your hosts discuss one of the most delicate subjects in all of Doctor Who; Love. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got heart problems. And no audio clips. Yeah, we forgot. It happens when you're old. With the heart problems.
