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!

Warning! Warning! Fanwanky Theories Alert! This week on The Oncoming Storm, your hosts Josh and Ashley at looking at New Adventure #17, Birthright by Nigel Robinson... and they are throwing out fan theories, pointing out continuity references, and generally being very, very fannish.

Who needs the Doctor anyway?!? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a future Doctor! Well, maybe. If you want him to be. Probably.
