As 2016 continues it's monstrous march to kill off as many icons as it can, The Oncoming Storm team huddles in its bunker, hoping to avoid drawing the attention of the specter of death to Doctor Who. Afraid to go outside, Josh, Ashley, and Jeff do the only thing they really know how to do, and that's listen to Big Finish! This month, the focus is on the awaited return of the War Doctor, with his second box set, Infernal Devices. Will this finally deliver the Time War story the boys have been waiting on? Once that is accomplished, then it's back to the monthly range to discuss Hex's adventures in history in The Settling by Simon Guerrier and the 8th's Doctor's monthly memory loss in Something Inside. One of these stories has the unfortunate luck to feature something called the 'brain worm'. Can you guess which one? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're got kinky shock collars, cuz only the best for the Doctor.

The moment Josh has been waiting for has finally arrived. After a short delay at Oncoming Storm HQ, episode 171 sees Josh, Ashley, and Jeff reviewing Josh's favorite New Adventure (and, let's be honest, favorite Doctor Who book and one of the his favorite books period) The Also People, by Ben Aaronovitch . It's a quaint story where the Doctor meets God. OK, not that God, but a hyper intelligent artificial intelligence that sees over the People, a race composed of people both biological and mechanical that lives inside a Dyson Sphere. Oh, and Kadiatu is there too. But she's kinda feral crazy, and the Doctor may have to kill her. As you do. Anyway, come see if Ashley and Jeff are wise enough to join Josh in the cult of The Also People, or if they just have no taste at all. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got a talking parachute. And a talking fish. Honestly, pretty much everything in the Dyson Sphere talks. I bet going to the bathroom is awkward there.
