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.
