For the one hundred and ninety ninth time, The Oncoming Storm is back to talk the best and brightest of Doctor Who audios! Well, maybe. There's some contention this week, and it sends the show careening off of the tracks. Again. But at least it's not about River Song this time! It starts off okay, with Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff talking about Architects of History by Steve Lyons. It wraps up the Klein trilogy in a flourish of time travel bendy-ness! Then the contention starts with the discussion about Charley's swan song with the 8th Doctor, The Girl Who Never Was by Alan Barnes. Bet you can't guess who didn't like this one! Everyone tries to recover to look at the 50th anniversary Companion Chronicle, The Beginning by Marc Platt, but has the damage already been done? All of this, and discussion of the big news of the week that... no one can agree on. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got so much salt, we put Morton's to shame.

Okay folks. We're hours away from our local convention, Wholanta, and we don't have a lot of time. So lets's do this quickly. Yes, this is episode 198 of the Oncoming Storm. No Jeff isn't here, so you're stuck with Josh, Ashley, and Rachel. Yes, Josh is an idiot, and this is actually the 56th New Adventure, not the 57th. Yes, that means it's So Vile a Sin by Ben Aaronovitch and Kate Orman, the notorious "6 months late, sorry you had to find out about that big surprise in another book" book. No, we won't ruin the surprise here, just in case. And yes, Big Finish did release some big news the day after we recorded. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got 99 Doctors but Roz ain't one.
