The Oncoming Storm Ep 32: BF #18 A Future Historical

Venice! The Queen of the Adriatic, the City of Water, a fairy city of the heart... A hotbed for vampire & ancient aliens??? Join your hosts Josh and Ashley as they accompany the Eighth Doctor and Charley down the serene canals of this fabled city in this week's featured story, The Stones of Venice by Paul Magrs. Your hosts are mesmerized by Paul Magrs's dialogue, so much so that Ashley can't even concentrate enough to focus on the conversation! When Josh is able to wake him up, historical comparisons are made, Josh recounts meeting character actors in bars, and Ashley is fired. And we have a second week of breaking news! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have a surprising lack of vampires in Venice! Mr. Moffat, have you lied to us???

The Oncoming Storm Ep 30: Dalek Empire 1 "Wait, Their Plan Was What?"

It's the second episode of the week for The Oncoming Storm. As Ashley and Josh try to to recover from yet another computer crash resulting in two slightly delayed episodes, Ashley is still in a great mood! Why? Because it's time for Dalek Empire, that's why! This week, your hosts are looking at the entire first series of the seminal Dalek Empire stories, by the multi talented Nicholas Briggs. It's a series of stories WITHOUT the Doctor! And <gasp> the Daleks have never been better for it! Listen as Ashley and Josh discuss just how well the Daleks fare without the Doctor around to hog all the glory, the insanity of Dalek planning, and just how many traitors can fit into one series! The Oncoming Storm... This time we have an Angel of Mercy! Don't Blink!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 29: NA #11 Turtle Power!

We're back! It's a belated mid week episode of The Oncoming Storm! While we apologise for the delay, we have a special treat for you. We're looking at the debut novel of prolific Who writer Gareth Roberts, writer of many a Who novel and television episode. How does the writer of such episodes as The Lodger and Closing Time do in his 1st attempt? Pretty well if you ask us! See where it all began for Mr. Roberts as Josh and Ashley examine the New Adventure The Highest Science. What is the secret of the Highest Science? What does a train of English commuters and some drugged out hippies have to do with it? And what's a Chelonian? You may just find these answers in The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got giant talking turtles, but they aren't interested in sharing any pizza!
