This week, it's the American holiday of Thanksgiving, and the celebration has made it to The Oncoming Storm headquarters. Thanksgiving is notable for for 2 main traditions in America, that of giving thanks for all of the things we have in life, and sitting down in front of a giant bird in supplication before it is eaten. With that in mind, your hosts Josh and Ashley are stepping away form the normal release schedule for a moment and looking at Doctor Who's very own giant talking bird, Frobisher! That means this week's topic is The Maltese Penguin by Robert Shearman. This subscriber special puts Frobisher into his very own detective story, and your hosts are discussing life without the Doctor, Colin Baker's accent work, and playing spot the witty reference! That's not all this week either, as Josh and Ashley, in keeping with the season, pick their turkey's of the year, and find a little something to give thanks for. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a dame to kill for, AND "Peter Lorre"! How could anyone not like that???
