This is the Doctor Who you won't find on television!
The Oncoming Storm Ep 189: Frozen Time, Angel of Scutari, The Claws of Santa, The Eighth Piece

And so we finally come to the end of 2016, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with a ton of technical problems, distractions, and missing members of the show. Yes, episode 189 of The Oncoming Storm is 2016 in a nutshell; full of good intentions but filled with random disasters. But don't let that scare you off! This supersized send off sees Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel doing their best to make it through the home stretch. First up is Frozen Time, by Nicholas Briggs. Spoilers: it's Ashley's pick and has Ice Warriors in it! Then it's over to Josh's pick of The Angel of Scutari by Paul Sutton. Hex is doing his nurse thing alongside Florence Nightingale while the Doctor has to ensure that he dies to maintain the web of time! Next is Jeff's holiday pick, Iris Wildthyme and the Claws of Santa by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright. It's every bit as wild as you'd think a story with Iris, Santa Claus, and a wisecracking robot would be. And finally Rachel has the crew stay with Doom Coalition 3 as they review The Eighth Piece by Matt Fitton. It's... not as satisfying as you'd hope, even with River Song in a nun's outfit! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're just happy to have made it out of the year alive. See you in 2017!
