The Oncoming Storm Ep 101: NA # 25 - The Reference Game

The week passed without incident, and everyone at The Oncoming Storm HQ is still in a good mood from last week's celebration. Since Ashley was on his bestest behavior all week, Josh and Rachel have decided that they will let Ashley in on reviewing the next New Adventure, Legacy by Gary Russell. Ice Warriors, a return to Peladon, Alpha Centauri... You're think Ashley's secret diary was being reviewed! The 7th Doctor and Benny are playing Columbo as they track down a thief and murderer among Peladon's mixture of delegates and royalty. Meanwhile on the show, Ashley lectures everyone on why the Peladon stories are great, Rachel is lost amid all the continuity, and Josh is harboring a deadly secret that could bring down the entire podcast! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Peladon, the CIA, Goth, Deva Loka, Telos, the 3rd Doctor, Mavic Chen... er, what DON'T we have??? Oh, right. Ace.

Break out the booze and party favors! Throw on your fancy dress! It's time to celebrate! We've rolled out the red carpet for The Oncoming Storm's 100th Episode!

Robert Shearman, Joe Lidster, and Paul Cornell. How well do a bunch of single episodes work around the theme of 100? Join in on the party and find out! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're 100! Please excuse the self indulgence. We're centenarians now. Sometimes you just have to let the old farts have their fun.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 99: BF # 40 - DalekCast (a Podcast with a picture of a Dalek)

It's episode 99 of The Oncoming Storm! We're one away from the big 1-0-0, and in all the excitement, we're starting the celebration a little bit early. And what better way to celebrate than with a Jubilee?!? That's right, this week sees Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Rachel discussing the Big Finish classic, Jubilee by Rob Shearman. Make no bones about it, they all agree upfront that it's a great audio, but that doesn't mean there's a lack of topics to talk about! From discussing the difference between Jubilee and Dalek, to the stellar performances from all involved, your hosts can't seem to stop talking about this one! All that, and this week's spin off media news is covered. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got electrocutions, stabbings, AND beheadings! It is a Rob Shearman story after all!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 98: NA #24 - A Tragedy of Epic Proportions

Ashley's back! Which means we can actually talk about Tragedy Day! Sorry for the delay! So yes, this week sees your hosts, Josh, Ashley, and Rachel head back to the New Adventures to talk Tragedy Day by Gareth Roberts. The Doctor, Ace, and Benny have finally worked out all of their problems and have let the TARDIS decide on a random destination for them to land, That always works out right? It's a tale of disgusting mutants, secret societies, and all powerful friars. Oh, and the giant spider assassin. But before they get to that, there's this week's discussion topic to talk about, "Do you prefer a darker or lighter Doctor, and how dark should he be allowed to go?" The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a deadly disco dancefloor! I bet you thought we'd go back to the spider guy didn't you?
