The Oncoming Storm Ep 63: BF # 29 For Whom the Bell Chimes

Okay, lesson learned. Never proclaim during recording that everything is back on schedule for the future. Fate will surely step in to make a liar out of you! Now that power has return to Oncoming Storm HQ, Episode 63 can be released! Your hapless hosts, Josh & Ashley, have suffered over the weeks from broken legs to needless 80 hour work weeks... and now it's time they were rewarded! So they are looking at the reputed Big Finish classic The Chimes of Midnight by Rob Shearman. Does it live up to the hype? Well, okay, of course it does. But that doesn't stop Josh and Ashley discussing it with vigor, including talk about the comedy of death, Charley's snobbery, and Josh's overeager fascination with the time paradox. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a sentient house! Ya know, if it had just hooked up with Saul rather then kill all of those people, this all could have been avoided.

Sit back and enjoy! The Oncoming Storm... Yep nothing different here this week! It's late, and we don't have time to try and be witty!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 61: THE Andrew Cartmel Interview part 1

The Oncoming Storm episode 61 sees Josh triumphantly returning from Timegate, his weary arms full of audio gold after an exhausting convention. And who is he going to celebrate this with this week? Why, It's ... just Ashley, hobbling along as he returns from breaking his leg. Both host's weeks are discussed before turning the episode over to the one and only Andrew Cartmel! Yes, Josh was able to ply Mr. Cartmel with a nice dinner in order to sit down for a lengthy interview about Andrew's career in Doctor Who, after the show was off the air. This week in part 1, Andrew talks about the days right after the show went off the air and his days writing for Virgin. Be prepared to hear a lot of details about the entire War trilogy, so beware potential spoilers if you're like Ashley and not read all of these books yet! The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got a honest to God Doctor Who Script Editor! Not that we, um, ask any questions about script editing.

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.

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!
