The Oncoming Storm Ep 60: Destiny of the Doctor #4 Babble On 3

This week, The Oncoming Storm is sticking with the 4th Doctor... this time with more Timelordy goodness as Romana is added to the mix. In episode 60, your hosts, Jash and Ash- no wait, that guy's gone. That's right, we've reorganized at The Oncoming Storm, and that means redundancies. With Ashley gone, Josh turns to a couple of old friends, Dr. Scott Viguie and Sacha Dzuba, from The Articles of the Shadow Proclamation  and Dr. Geek's Laboratory. Their focus this time out is Babblesphere by Jonathan Morris, the 4th installment of Destiny of the Doctor, featuring Lalla Ward as Romana. There's lots of discussion about this weekend's Timegate convention, the evil potential of Twitter, and the CSO of Season 17. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've lost a host! Be sure to tell everyone how you feel about that! And your breakfast! #happydance #Weetabix

The Oncoming Storm Ep 59: 4th Doctor 50th Tie In - Climbing the Scarf

Time to put away all the velvet, and pull out our multicoloured scarves & jelly babies! It's 4th Doctor time on episode 59 of The Oncoming Storm! This week, Josh and Ashley  start by tackling the 4th issue of Prisoners of Time, with a little help from returning guest Jeff Polier. It features the 4th Doctor and Leela as they face... the Judoon?!? They will let you know how this first time meeting of a new series monster and a classic Doctor works out! After that, it's The Roots of Evil by Philip Reeve. This latest ebook has the 4th Doctor & Leela fight against a homicidal space tree. One of these stories faithfully recreates the Tom Baker era to a fault. The other has Leela using contractions. Guess which one the guys like? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got goosing crystalline entities who will whisper sweet nothings in your ear. At least, that's what it looks like to us.

Josh and Ashley are still in their velvet jackets and capes for Episode 56 of The Oncoming Storm! They continue their look at the Pertwee era anniversary stories with the third AudioGo Destiny of the Doctor release, Vengeance of the Stones by Andrew Smith.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 55: 3rd Doctor 50th Tie ins - The Master Would Not Approve

Break out the hot pants and aviator glasses! Dust off your crushed velvet jackets! The Oncoming Storm is heading back to the early 1970's for episode 55 with two adventures of that man of action, the 3rd Doctor! First up, your hosts, Josh and Ashley, tackle issue #3 of Prisoners of Time, which sees the Doctor, Sarah Jane, the Brigadier(!), and Liz Shaw(!!) facing off against giant talking fish aliens. That seems about right. Then, it's The Spear of Destiny by Marcus Sedgwick, where the Doctor and Jo enter more unfamiliar territory as they go into history to visit the Vikings?!? Listen as your hosts discuss that pesky UNIT dating issue, question just how many companions are needed in these stories, and debate "Is it really a Pertwee anniversary story without the Master?". The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got The Master... and you will obey us!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 54: NA # 17 Where's The Doctor?

Warning! Warning! Fanwanky Theories Alert! This week on The Oncoming Storm, your hosts Josh and Ashley at looking at New Adventure #17, Birthright by Nigel Robinson... and they are throwing out fan theories, pointing out continuity references, and generally being very, very fannish. It's like they're New Adventure writers! As they debate how The Doctor can possibly set up everything in this book and Muldwych's identity, they never lose sight of the one thing they really, really agree on... this book was great! Who needs the Doctor anyway?!? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a future Doctor! Well, maybe. If you want him to be. Probably.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 53: BF # 26 Traken History Lessons

It's time on the Oncoming Storm to visit the history of Doctor Who, to experience an excellent prequel to a well known Classic Series story full of great characterization for the 5th Doctor & Nyssa and full of continuity references to sway even the coldest fanboy's heart! No, not Spare Parts, silly, that's still months away! No, it's Primeval by Lance Parkin in episode 53! Your hosts Josh and Ashley are here to take you through it, and Josh wants to know why there's so much love for Spare Parts, yet no accolades for Primeval? As he outlines his overzealous points in that regard, Ashley is just happy we're traveling back to the history of a planet other than Earth! Join them as they discover the origins of the Keeper of Traken. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got the Source! It burns... It BURNS!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 52: Destiny of the Doctor #2 Jumping at Shadows

Normally your hosts, Josh Wilson and Ashley Raburn get along just fine. But in The Oncoming Storm Episode 52, there is dissention in the ranks! Is it over this week's Big Finish/AudioGo story in the Destiny of the Doctor series, Shadow of Death by Simon Guerrier? No, they both seem to really like the story itself. Maybe there is some Doctor Who news that has them in a tizzy? No, it's a pretty light news week. No folks, it's all about some shadows, ones that don't really have a thing to do with this particular story. Once they are able to set aside their differences, there is talk related to the actual story, with praises sung about Frazer Hines, Josh's writer tiers, and the sad lack of Wendy Padbury. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we DON'T have the bloody Vashta Nerada. Seriously. I mean it.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 51: 2nd Doctor 50th Tie Ins - Faith Renewed

The Oncoming Storm is now past the half century mark, and now it's time to return to the monthly 50th Anniversary celebrations with February's ebook and comic... no matter how much your hosts Josh and Ashley may not want to after last month's catastrophes. But now it's Patrick Troughton's turn in the spotlight! First up is issue # 2 of Prisoners of Time, IDW's comic miniseries, featuring the 2nd Doctor facing slavers in a space mall! (It's actually better then it sounds!) Oh, and it has some Ice Warriors in it. (Happy Ashley?) After that, Ashley and Josh look at The Nameless City by Michael Scott. The 2nd Doctor is in McCoy territory, as he and Jamie face the Archons, an evil from the Dawn of Time(tm)! Will these two stories make your hosts change their minds about their respective series? Or does the catastrophe continue? Listen and marvel at the difference a month can make! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a Scotsman in a kilt! We've been to cons, we KNOW that's a big draw!
