This week, they come to the end of the first season of the Divergent Universe, with The Twilight Kingdom by Will Shindler. It's a ride of ups and downs, this Divergent Universe thing. Will this season finale give them the answers and direction they are craving from this new universe, or will it be just another random adventure that could have taken place anywhere? Eh, well, at least it's got a giant cave system monster.  In addition, there's listener feedback on the Doctor's love life! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got caves. Lots and lots of caves. It's like it's 1983 in here.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 123: NA # 29 - Stranger Than Your Typical England

Alright, so The Oncoming Storm is back on schedule. For now. And that means as your second episode of this week, you get more Josh, Ashley, and Rachel action as they talk about Strange England, by Simon Messingham. It's a story of the Doctor, Ace, and Benny visiting a quiet Victorian manor house, and the expected hijinks that ensue.  You'll laugh hysterically as people are eaten by trees. You'll coo over the young girl transmogrified into a horrific spider monster. And don't even get us started on the adorable throat crawling winged insects. You'll enjoy it all, or be violently assimilated back into the program! The Oncoming Storm... This time, what we don't have, is a Ashley Williams. He and that chainsaw hand would have really come in handy in this one.
