Gather round everyone, but not too close! That's right, it's time for another illness filled episode of The Oncoming Storm! In what is seemingly becoming an annual event, episode 170 sees two out of the three hosts present felled by illness. This time it's Josh and Jeff trying to cope, and Ashley, well, he's Ashley. Expect a lot of ramblings from Josh as he valiantly tries to remember what the stories were actually about. First up is the Phillip Hinchcliffe Presents box set, by, surprisingly, Phillip Hinchcliffe with some back up from Marc Platt. The discussion is filled with more cold medicine fueled debates about what exactly qualifies as "Hinchcliffian" than story talk. Sorry. Then there's Time Works by Steve Lyons, where most everyone manages to stay on topic to discuss the time displaced 8th Doctor in an adventure featuring some very corporate clockwork men. Finally, it's on to The Kingmaker by Nev Fountain, which everyone agrees is very good, but then spends an inordinate amount of time arguing about what qualifies as anachronistic. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Nyquil, a whole lotta Nyquil.

Whew! Have any of you actually come back for episode 169? After last episode's drama, it's probably a good idea to sit back, relax, and talk about something a lot less likely to draw everyone into an argument. Sounds like the perfect time to discuss the nature of the 7th Doctor and the entirety of the New Adventures line! This week's episode of the Oncoming Storm sees Josh, Ashley, and Jeff discussing Head Games, by Steve Lyons. Is it a damning condemnation of the 7th Doctor, or a validation of doing what he must? And just what is that screaming redhead doing here? All of this will be examined, as well as the news and what Jeff thinks about the audio version of All Consuming Fire! The Oncoming Storm... This Time, there's no swearing. At least, not by us. This book does feature Ace, Benny, and Roz after all.
