The Oncoming Storm Ep 80: PDA # 17 A Sidestep? A Step Back? Who Knows?

It's Turkey Day once again in America, but don't let that fool you! This week's episode of The Oncoming Storm features a story that is no turkey! In between overly large family dinners, Josh, Ashley, and Rachel were able to bring to you a discussion about the final story in our month of anniversary specials, The Infinity Doctors by Lance Parkin. Published in celebration of the 35th Anniversary, this book is an odd bird, featuring a Doctor back on Gallifrey, who was married, facing off against Omega... but who supposedly looks like Paul McGann, but is NOT the 8th Doctor. Listen as your hosts try to make sense of it all, catch up on some old news, and Josh enters a level of fan theory that bewilders his co hosts! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've been killed! Several times! Temporal Grace and all that. I'm sure you understand. Um... Could you explain it to us?

The Oncoming Storm Ep 79: That Other 50th Anniversary Special

We're a podcast on an anniversary special. But probably not the one you were expecting.

That's right. The Oncoming Storm is here with episode 79, in the week of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary! And we're ready to talk about the anniversary story. No, not the one with those two babyfaces and the guy from "Alien" in it. Ashley, Josh, Rachel, Sacha, and special guest Dr. Scott Vigue are here to discuss The Light at the End by Nicholas Briggs, the Big Finish Anniversary special. 8 Doctors, 1 Master, and a slew of companions. Will it be a mess or a masterpiece? But before that, a certain minisode with big implications regarding Doctor Who spin off media is thoroughly analyzed. And we won't lie, drooled over. The Oncoming Storm... This time we've got a whole lotta McGann, and some validation at last. Life couldn't be better.

First up, it's the Big Finish story Zagreus by Gary Russell and Alan Barnes. Wait, please come back! We were gonna have to do it at some point, might as well do it while the good anniversary vibes last. It is an endeavor though, as hosts Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Hannah trudge through long recounts of exposition and Alice in Wonderland references. Join us, as we try to figure out if Zagreus is as bad as it's reputation, or if it is unduly maligned. The Oncoming Storm...
