Avast, ye mateys! Tis us, the scourge of the internet seas, The Oncoming Storm! Aye, tis an annoying pirate accent we be having, but what else would ye expect? For tonight, we be discussing Sky Pirates! Captain Josh and First Mate Ashley are sailing alone for this voyage, and with no one to stop the filthy curs, ye know that thar be discussion of the good ol' days, arguments, and not a little Star Wars talk! Sky Pirates! by Dave Stone is the main target this week, with a wee dingy of a review from The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got 10 pound balls, and yes, they make walking difficult... to the cannons! (Yeah, it's that kind of book. Deal.)

AH-CHOO! Sorry, Sorry, the weather is starting to change here at Oncoming Storm HQ and that means one thing: It's time for everyone to get sick again. Josh, Ashley, and Rachel are the lucky ones. They're still about to talk. Poor Jeff however... the less said the better. But the hosts who are able to make it prop themselves up on Codine and prepare to talk about what they've listened to in September. First up is Unregenerate! by David A. McIntee. Does this story of an insane 7th Doctor being busted out of a peculiar mental hospital deserve the exclamation point? Then it's time for The Council of Nicaea by Caroline Symcox, as Erimem asked the age old question of the Doctor,'Why can't I change the past?'. Wrapping our coverage is our first review of a Big Finish Tom Baker story! It's The Romance of Crime by Gareth Roberts, adapted by John Dorney. Find out how well this adapts the novel and if Tom and Lalla can recapture that old magic! All this and news that will have have you saying, "Yes, More!". The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a nitpicky Josh, a high Ashley, and a Rachel that doesn't like Douglas Adams?!? Say it ain't so!
