The Oncoming Storm Ep 16: BF #10 "I Smell the Claws of the Doctor in This!" WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Welcome to the 16th Episode of the Oncoming Storm! Make sure you have your refreshments, because you're to see your hosts Ashley and Josh go head to head in this one. They're looking at Winter  for the Adept by Andrew Cartmel, featuring the 5th Doctor and Nyssa... or does it?And what are they fighting about? The deeper meanings and themes of the story? Do they disagree on if the story is any good? Nope, its just the meaning behind one throw away line. After finally working their way through that meaningless topic, there is discussion about gentleman ghosts, Nyssa's attitude, and sluttiness in Doctor Who. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have plain old conquering aliens... and I take it back. Where's the unicorns?
