The Oncoming Storm Ep 74: Destiny of the Doctor #7 - Shock & Awe

There's not a lot of time here at the Oncoming Storm, episode 74! Your hosts Josh and Ashley are gearing up for Dragoncon once again. But fear not, gentle listener, in all of their preperations, they have not forsaken you! This early release sees them talking about Destiny of the Doctor # 7, Shockwave by James Swallow. After discussing their plans for the week and a few bits of news, your hosts turn to the story proper, and discussions of Ace's character, how the McCoy years resemble the New Series, and uselessness of guest performers all occur. Also, some time is taken to talk about the actual story. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're late for the convention! We'll make feeble attempts to be witty again next week!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 72: NA # 20 Worst. Name. Ever.

After a journey long traveled, Ashley returns for The Oncoming Storm episode 72! Both regular hosts, Josh and Ashley, are back in action, and trying to recapture that magic they once had together. Luckily, they can finally get around to talking New Adventures again, so it should be just like riding a bike, right? Or maybe a sports car TARDIS? This week, The Dimension Riders by Daniel Blythe is the topic of discussion. The Doctor, Ace and Benny are separated in different time zones, facing off against Time Soldiers and naff Master wannabes. Join your hosts as they discuss old story references, Monster name choices, and that really icky death scene. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got time beam gun things. They'll age you to dust! Or a baby we guess, if that one Time Soldier feels like having a laugh.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 71: Excelis Trilogy "Boy, Giles sure sounds cray-cray"

It's time for Episode 71 of The Oncoming Storm, and once again, Josh finds himself alone. So rather than develop a complex about it, Josh turns to the wheels of fate, and finds himself two reliable fill in hosts, Dr. Scott and Sacha of The Articles of the Shadow Proclamation and Dr. Geek's Lab! And because Josh wants to reward such loyalty, it's time for one of the "special" episodes, and this time, it's all about the Excelis trilogy. Or is that Quadrilogy? Tetralogy? Whatever. Covered in this episode is Excelis Dawns by Paul Magrs, Excelis Rising by David McIntee, Excelis Decays by Craig Hinton, and Plague Herds of Excelis by Stephen Cole. There's guest stars abound, with stories filled with road trips, séances, and just plain depressing stuff. And Josh even says nice things about a Stephen Cole story. Well, nice-ish. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're taking the ol' Number 22 to Putney Common.  Drinks all around!
