The Oncoming Storm Ep 193: Death in the Family, Test of Nerve, The Crucible of Souls, Bride of Peladon
Buckle in folks. Episode 193 of The Oncoming Storm is bursting at the seams! It's 3 hours of Doctor Who goodness! Now, we know it's a little long, but Ashley, Josh, Rachel, and Jeff just couldn't help themselves. After all, first up they're talking what may be the greatest Big Finish of all time, A Death in the Family by Steven Hall. We needed tissues for this one. But it doesn't stop there! There's a side trip to see What Sarah Jane was up to before The Sarah Jane Adventures in Test of Nerve by David Bishop. Then the team finally finishes out Doom Coalition 3 by reviewing The Crucible of Souls by John Dorney. And lastly, because Ashley demanded it, we go back to Peladon with Bride of Peladon by Barnaby Edwards. So be sure to hydrate and join us for the marathon! The Oncoming Storm... this time, Nobody is stopping us from having a good episode!

Alright, we'll start with a mea culpa: This episode is almost a week late and we're sorry. When the Plague hits, sometimes you can't get a podcast episode out on time. But don't worry, we'll be back on track next week, and believe us, this one is worth the wait. After all, it's not everyday you get to review a 20 year old book and it's brand new audio adaptation in the same episode! Your patience is rewarded, and episode 192 of The Oncoming Storm sees Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel talking Cold Fusion by Lance Parkin. It begins with the longest recap in history (feel free to skip it), then the crew discusses the novel, before switching gears to rate how well the story adapts to audio! It's a doozy of an episode, with champagne & oysters, the Teganest Tegan, and the dragging out of old arguments that have zero to do with the novel at hand. And oh year, today's our birthday. Huzzah. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got not just one, but TWO birthdays. We hope you brought cake.
