The Oncoming Storm Ep 106: Emperor of the Daleks - Continuity Comics!

It's the last week in May, which means it will soon be June! And you know what that means!?! If you answered "The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield  is coming out!", then you must either work for Big Finish, or be Josh. In his excitement over the impending release, Josh has taken over the subject matter of the podcast, and it's all Benny, all the time! This week, that means a return to the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip in the days where Benny graced it's pages. That means it time to talk about Emperor of the Daleks, by Paul Cornell and Lee Sullivan! In a linking of continuity you wouldn't believe, this comic shows everyone how Davros went from being arrested by Daleks to leading his own faction of Imperial Daleks! Which wouldn't be complete without a visit to Spiridon of course! Ashley, Josh, and special guest Jeff Polier also take some time to answer what old comic concept or character they'd like see return to the strips! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got two Docs, a Daak, and the loveliest archeologist ever to grace Doctor Who!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 104: BF # 42- Flame On!

Once again, Big Finish returns to the land of the New Adventures... and Josh couldn't be happier! Episode 104 of The Oncoming Storm sees Josh, Ashley, and Sacha taking a look at The Dark Flame by Trevor Baxendale. There's ancient evils, a bad ass Ace, and Benny. Sweet, sweet Benny. While Josh is basking in the dulcet tones of Lisa Bowerman, Ashley and Sacha are discussing if this story captures the era of the New Adventures at all, and questioning why there are two stories in a row that feature all powerful entities fueled by old, dead bodies. But before all of that fun can begin, your hosts answer the question, "What would be your perfect audio story?" The Oncoming Storm...

The Oncoming Storm Ep 103: BF # 41 - Witchy Woman

Take a gaggle of cackling witches, some space mercenaries, and a quest for a relic of power, and you've got the basis of a standard, but potentially interesting Doctor Who story right? What if the writer added in cannibalism, beheadings, tongue extraction, and attempted rape? Still interested? In episode 103 of The Oncoming Storm, Josh, Ashley, and Sacha look at Nekromanteia by Austen Atkinson. It is not a pretty story, that much is evident. But is it any good? That's what your hosts will attempt to find out. But first, there's a TON of news, with lots of things coming from Big Finish, and a new exciting announcement from BBC Books! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got, well, a lot of unpleasant stuff really. But hey, at least Peri is naked in this one! Ok yeah, that kinda creeped us out too.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 102: Steve Moore Retrospective - Soulful Cybermen and Magic Aliens

On March 16th 2014, the world of Doctor Who Spin Off Media lost one if its original pioneers. Steve Moore was one of the first writers to write the Doctor Who comic strips for Doctor Who Weekly. While Doctor Who comic strips were nothing new, the Doctor Who Weekly strips were some of the first serious attempts to write stories that fit into the ongoing continuity of the television show and was written for a more sophisticated audience. The infulence of the material written by Steve Moore cannot be ignored, and he created several fan favorite characters that added to the expanding universe of Doctor Who. In episode 102 of The Oncoming Storm, join Josh and guests Jeff Polier and Alan Siler as they discuss two of Steve Moore's early Doctor Who stories, including the genesis of one of Steve Moore's biggest contributions to Doctor Who, Kroton the Cyberman with a soul! Also, there's a story about an alien witch. It's as crazy as it sounds. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got Meltron! He's awesome. And I'm pretty sure he could beat you to death with his turkey leg.
