    Well, here we are. Almost 6 years and over 200 episodes later, it's time for the final (for now?) episode of The Oncoming Storm. Even though All Good Things must come to an end, Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel are here to take you through episode 210, and its not without a few choked words. But before all of that, there's the final news segment covering all of the excitement of the last month, and the feature segment with everyone talks about what they feel about the New Adventures over all, and everyone runs down their top 5 New Adventures! The required Doctor Who content finished, the last hour of this deluxe sized episode is devoted to a bunch of self indulgent reminiscing, thank yous, and farewells. Feelings are expressed, tears are shed, and we really won't blame you if you turn off the show before it gets to that... don't say we didn't warn you! The Oncoming Storm... This last time, we've got nothing but love for everyone who's listened over the years. Thank you all for being a part of our journey.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Over 5 years ago, two men started out with a mission: Review every Doctor Who New Adventure from Virgin Publishing. And now, that mission reaches it's conclusion. Episode 209 of The Oncoming Storm sees Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff do their last review show of this version of the podcast on the final Doctor Who New Adventure, The Dying Days by Lance Parkin. This one features the 8th Doctor coming to keep a promise the 7th Doctor made to Benny... and then the Ice Warriors show up! Ice Warriors, Benny, a new series modern setting... it sounds like this book has the something for everyone on the Oncoming Storm crew. Will the NAs (and the podcast!) go out with a bang? Let's find out! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got no more New Adventure Angst! Instead, it's just a happy, huggable, kissable Paul McGann!



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 208: The Angel's Kiss, Special Features, The Curious Incident of the Doctor in the Nighttime

    The countdown gets ever lower... but we're not done yet! The Oncoming Storm is back to do their final audio episode in episode 208. Will it be full of laughter and happy remembrances, or will Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff revert to form and be at each others throats again? Well, this episode does feature a River Song story, but we're not saying. Spoilers! That's right, first up is the River Song solo adventure The Angel's Kiss by Justin Richards. A pastiche detective story set in 1930s New York, River gets hired to save an actor's life, and, surprise, the weeping angels are involved! Then Josh flexs his editor muscles to get to review 2 final stories, Special Features by John Dorney, and The Curious Incident of the Doctor in the Nighttime by Nev Fountain. Let Josh tell you why he decided these two deserved to be the final audios that The Oncoming Storm covers (for now)! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got laughs. And tears. And whatever you do when you hear River Song.



  • The Oncoming Storm EP 207: NA #60 Lungbarrow

    Episode Duration: 2 hours, 42 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, we tried. We really did. Episode 207 of The Oncoming Storm was supposed to be this epic conclusion to 5 years of discussing the 7th Doctor's new adventures. And it still is, after a fashion. Just with tons of screw ups along the way. It starts out well enough, Josh Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are here, and they get through the news well enough. But then the discussion turns to Lungbarrow by Marc Platt, and Ashley gets timescooped away. And despite our best efforts, we can't get him back. Even when a secondary discussion occurs, the pesky interference stops his voice again! So please forgive us, and try to enjoy the discussions that are there, as we talk about the Doctor's past, his family, and his tear jerking goodbye. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got sentient furniture and mutant killer flowers! Gallifrey is so much cooler than we all thought!



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 206: The Stone Rose & Wave of Destruction

    Hey now, has it been a month already? Don't worry, we haven't given up on the show just yet! Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are all back for episode 206 of The Oncoming Storm, and they have stories of cons, games, and wildfires from the month they were out. Once they catch up a month's worth of news, the team turns to the final audio picks of Jeff and Ashley. First up, Jeff picks a sentimental favorite, The Stone Rose by Jacqueline Rayner, as read by David Tennant. An audiobook featuring the 10th Doctor and Rose will surely bring the team together, right? After they recover from that, it's time for Ashley's random hat pick of Wave of Destruction by Justin Richards. Set in the infamous season 17 and featuring the 4th Doctor, Romana, and K-9, will Big Finish be able to capture some of that Douglas Adams magic? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Vardans and talking monkey things! Yeah well, they can't all be winners in the evil monster category.



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 205: NA #59 The Room with No Doors

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's time for The Oncoming Storm episode 205, and the crew think they're turning Japanese, they think they're turning Japanese, they really think so. Okay, bad 80's song references aside, Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are here with the penultimate 7th Doctor New Adventure, as they look at The Room with No Doors by Kate Orman, and that's right, The Doctor and Chris are in medieval Japan! There, they'll run across all of the expected things; samurai, monks, Victorian inventors, floating heads, giant bird people. You know, the usual. But Chris is having nightmares of being placed in the room with no doors. Is that his fate, or with a regeneration impending, is it the ultimate fate of the 7th Doctor? Strap in for some emotional soul searching in this one, folks. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got existential angst. Hopefully the Doctor can manipulate us into feeling better!



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 204: Doom Coalition 4

    What? It's new episode time already? Your editor isn't prepared for that! We gave up on this weekly thing ages ago. Luckily for you, dear listener, we've also pretty much given up on that whole editing thing, so you can hear episode 204 now! Episode 204 of The Oncoming Storm sees Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff coming to the end of the epic 16 part Doom Coalition! In this 4th boxset, by Big Finish masters John Dorney and Matt Fitten, the 8th Doctor faces a fully revealed Doom Coalition (finally!) with a little help from friends like Cardinal Ollistra and River Song. You might be expecting some slight disagreements over some of the aspects of this box set, and you'd be right! But... it's probably not about what you're expecting! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got WOOOONG! Oh No! WOOOOONG! IT's... WOOOOONG The TRUMPET MONSTERS!!!

    Alright, no time for any attempts at humor or wit. It's the editor's off week, so we'll take what we can get. And what you get, dear listener, is The Oncoming Storm episode 203. In what was supposed to be a short, news free episode, Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel still manage to go on for over an hour about Jim Mortimore's Eternity Weeps. It's the Benny pilot episode, if you will, and there's lots of relationship issues, violence, and death to talk about. Oh, and the Doctor. Eventually. The Oncoming Storm... this time, really, we're not talking about Jodie.



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 202: Unit Dominion & Daleks Among Us

    We know, we're a bit late again, so we won't keep you too long with flowery excuses. Let's get to it! It's episode 202 for The Oncoming Storm, and thanks to the delay, everyone is here to wrap up the story on Fraulein Klein. Josh, Rachel, Jeff, and Ashley are signing up to fight the good fight along UNIT and it's new scientific advisor. And we guess the Doctor can come along too. Both of them! Unit: Dominion by Nicholas Briggs and Jason Arnopp sees the 7th Doctor unwillingly team up with an apparent future version of himself played by Alex MacQueen. You know, I swear I've heard him in another part... but that's probably not important. After that, we come to the final Klein story to date, where we find out Klein's true origins in Daleks Among Us by Alan Barnes. Can you guess which one of these the team liked? Let's find out! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got giant floating baby heads! You just gotta love Doctor Who.

Yeah, it goes as well as you'd expect. There's death, faceless orderlies, and surprising returns! Join us as we count down to the end. We're going out big! The Oncoming Storm...

    So it's finally here. The bicentennial. The Big 2-0-0. The Oncoming Storm celebrates 200 episodes of Doctor Who books, audios, and comics by acknowledging that they won't get to talk about all of the best non televised adventures of the Doctor before they wrap up, so it's time for a list! Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel have come to the table with a list of their top five favorite Doctor Who spin off media that won't be covered by the show, and they're gonna tell you why they're worthy of being the best of what's left! At least, that was the idea. It's not long before everyone is cheating and expanding their lists to cover whole swathes of material. But when you have 50 plus years to cover, it's hard to keep it to a top five! Rounding out the episode, we present our special 200th episode panel from Wholanta 2017. It quickly goes off the rails and becomes a Who spin off media 101 panel, but we wanted to include it as a thank you for all of the fine people who woke up on a Sunday morning to come spend time with us! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got no arguments or infighting, and complement each other's picks! You'd think we gotten somewhat professional after 200 episodes or something.

    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.



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 198: NA #56 So Vile a Sin

    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.



  • The Oncoming Storm Ep 197: The Unknown, Thousand Tiny Wings, Survival of the Fittest, One Rule

    Let this be a lesson to everyone: Never trust technology. It will always betray you. This doesn't have a thing to do with the content of episode 197 of The Oncoming Storm, but the journey to getting there has been one fraught with issues. Just trust your editor, never upgrade your computer and expect everything to work like it used to. You'll get low sound recordings or be unable to make episode logos anymore... oh you want us to actually talk about Doctor Who? Oh, alright. Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff(eventually) are all here, and they start off by ripping off the bandaid and discussing The Diary of River Song 2 with the first episode, The Unknown by Guy Adams. If they survive that, then it's time for the 1st two parts of the Klein trilogy, A Thousand Tiny Wings by Andy Lane, and Survival of the Fittest by Jonathan Clements. After the fun time discussing that, Jeff makes everyone listen to more Torchwood with One Rule by Joseph Lidster. But hey, at least it doesn't feature any of those lousy Torchwood 3 people! The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got Nazis again... except this time around, the Nazi is a companion!!!

    This week on The Oncoming Storm, we bring you a discussion about a 7th Doctor story wherein he visits a council estate to fight a rogue ancient Time Lord weap... hey, anyone else here have deja vu? It feels like this has already been covered. Well, nevermind. Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are here to give what will surely be totally original thoughts about the 55th New Adventure, Damaged Goods by Russell T Davies. Yes, that RTD. But let's forget about the fact that he will be the one to bring back Doctor Who in 2005. Was he a good writer in 1996? No spoilers, but know that there is a consensus rating amongst all hosts this time around! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got N-Forms. It's... not pleasant.

    The storm has arrived... figuratively and literarily! The Oncoming Storm is back with episode 195, and they're brought with then an actual thunderstorm! But a little rain isn't going to stop Josh, Ashley, and Jeff from talking about Doctor Who related audios. (Editor's note: Rachel's absence is totally not rain related) First up, the crew braves flickering power to talk about the conclusion of I, Davros, Guilt by Scott Alan Woodard. Then Ashley makes everyone return to Peladon. Again. This time we get to visit with the old King Peladon in The Prisoner of Peladon by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright, as he struggles to deal with a planet full of Martin refugees. Finally, we cross over to the Eleven Day Empire to talk a little Faction Paradox by looking at the first two releases of the Faction Paradox Protocols by Lawrence Miles. It has Sontarans. Lots of... headless Sontatans. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got no Aggedor, no Venusian Lullabys... Josh might actually like this stay on Peladon!

    How's the old saying go... "I don't know about art, but I know what I like"? In episode 194 of The Oncoming Storm, Josh, Ashley, and Rachel are going to give you their opinions on art, or at least the death of it. This week, its the 54th New Adventure in the hot seat, as they discuss The Death of Art by Simon Bucher-Jones. The 7th Doctor, Roz, and Chris are in turn of the century Paris, and there's psychic shenanigans afoot! Artists are gaining vast mental powers and mutated monsters roam the streets. And let's not forget the killer dolls... actually, wait, let's forget them. But before we get to that, Jeff does join the crew for the news of the week, before abandoning his comrades to the mercy of French mutants. That cad. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got microscopic aliens with death disc spaceships! Oh, and they live in your body. And the ships pop out of your skin. Sorry about that.

Now, we know it's a little long, but Ashley, Josh, Rachel, and Jeff just couldn't help themselves. After all, first up they're talking what may be the greatest Big Finish of all time, A Death in the Family by Stephen Hall. We needed tissues for this one. But it doesn't stop there! There's a side trip to see What Sarah Jane was up to before The Sarah Jane Adventures in Test of Nerve by David Bishop. Then the team finally finishes out Doom Coalition 3 by reviewing The Crucible of Souls by John Dorney. And lastly, because Ashley demanded it, we go back to Peladon with Bride of Peladon by Barnaby Edwards. So be sure to hydrate and join us for the marathon!

    Alright, we'll start with a mea culpa: This episode is almost a week late and we're sorry. When the Plague hits, sometimes you can't get a podcast episode out on time. But don't worry, we'll be back on track next week, and believe us, this one is worth the wait. After all, it's not everyday you get to review a 20 year old book and it's brand new audio adaptation in the same episode! Your patience is rewarded, and episode 192 of The Oncoming Storm sees Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel talking Cold Fusion by Lance Parkin. It begins with the longest recap in history (feel free to skip it), then the crew discusses the novel, before switching gears to rate how well the story adapts to audio! It's a doozy of an episode, with champagne & oysters, the Teganest Tegan, and the dragging out of old arguments that have zero to do with the novel at hand. And oh year, today's our birthday. Huzzah. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got not just one, but TWO birthdays. We hope you brought cake.

Josh, Rachel, and Jeff can't wait to get started, but, you guessed it, Ashley is missing again! Okay, not missing exactly, he's in San Francisco, running after a beryllium clock or kissing redheads or something. So what is he missing? Oh, just the culmination of almost 10 years of Big Finish stories! That's right, first up is Project: Destiny by Mark Wright and Cavan Scott, which sees Hex finally find out about his mom and her connection to the Doctor! After that bit of serious drama, how about a detour with pink, vampire hamster toys? Cuddlesome by Nigel Fairs features the 5th Doctor facing an army of the buggers! And finally it's The Doomsday Chronometer by Matt Fitten, the 3rd story in Doom Coalition 3, and we finally have River and the 8th Doctor face to face! It's a night of big moments, so of course Ashley misses it. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got killer, pink, vampire hamster toys. They're so ridiculous that we had to mention them twice!

Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff are once more headed into that depth, with some discussion about Return of the Living Dad by Kate Orman. Benny finally finds out what happened to her father, and calls on the Doctor to track him down! Lots of disputed points in this episode, and one of the crew even goes as far as saying this might be their favorite book! But before we can get to the book discussion, there's a months worth of news to talk about, and there's an announcement about the future of the podcast to get through. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got a sentient spatula! It's really the best thing in the book.

    And so we finally come to the end of 2016, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with a ton of technical problems, distractions, and missing members of the show. Yes, episode 189 of The Oncoming Storm is 2016 in a nutshell; full of good intentions but filled with random disasters. But don't let that scare you off! This supersized send off sees Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel doing their best to make it through the home stretch. First up is Frozen Time, by Nicholas Briggs. Spoilers: it's Ashley's pick and has Ice Warriors in it! Then it's over to Josh's pick of The Angel of Scutari by Paul Sutton. Hex is doing his nurse thing alongside Florence Nightingale while the Doctor has to ensure that he dies to maintain the web of time! Next is Jeff's holiday pick, Iris Wildthyme and the Claws of Santa by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright. It's every bit as wild as you'd think a story with Iris, Santa Claus, and a wisecracking robot would be. And finally Rachel has the crew stay with Doom Coalition 3 as they review The Eighth Piece by Matt Fitton. It's... not as satisfying as you'd hope, even with River Song in a nun's outfit! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're just happy to have made it out of the year alive. See you in 2017!

    Sodomy and Hellfire! Is it time for another episode of The Oncoming Storm already? Rationally speaking, it has been two weeks since the last episode, so history tells us another must come out today. But why be so rational? Josh, Ashley, Jeff, and Rachel are here in episode 188 to determine if they should stick to rationality, or just blow it all off and go and play with the gynoids. The topic, of course, is Christmas on a Rational Planet by Lawrence Miles. The Doctor, Roz, and Chris must stave off the forces of the Carnival Queen and her irrational forces of Cacophony... but are they making the right choice? And no discussion of Miles's first book would be complete without complete tangents about the man himself. There are lots of those this episode, but with a figure like Lawrence Miles, how can you not? The Oncoming Storm... Buggery and Damnation, This time we're got the most creative swearing you'll ever find in a Doctor Who Story.

    Honestly, there's not much to say this week. The Oncoming Storm has lost one of it's own this week, and we're devastated. Sacha hasn't been on the show for well over a year due to his schedule and health issues, but he has remained a member of our dysfunctional family and we were expecting his return sooner rather than later. Sadly, Sacha passed away on 11/14/2016, due to complications during surgery. Episode 187 then, is dedicated entirely to the memory of Sacha Dzuba. Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff first come together to say a few things about their friend, and then because it's what he would have wanted, they spend two hours deep in geeky Doctor Who conversation. They cover Enemy of the Daleks by David Bishop, Psychodrome by Jonathan Morris, Fallen Angels by Phil Mulryne, and in an unfair twist of fate, Absent Friends by John Dorney. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a lot of tears. We miss you already Sacha.

The Oncoming Storm episode 185 sees Josh, Jeff, Ashley, and Rachel lacing up their boxing gloves and getting into the ring of online reviews! The first bout is over The Magic Mousetrap by Matthew Sweet. Things get a little heated as they discuss this 7th Doctor story about memory and the return of an old foe. Luckily, everyone gets a breather when Iterations of I by John Dorney is discussed, and everyone enjoys the return of Adric! It doesn't last though when the Sarah Jane Adventures story, Deadly Download by Jason Arnopp is the subject and Josh gets a bee in his bonnet over it! Not to be outdone, Jeff has serious issues as we visit The Horror of Glam Rock by Paul Magrs. Jeff REALLY doesn't like Josh and Rachel's beloved Glam music, and isn't afraid to show it! Does everyone make it out alive? Will Ashley get a word in anywhere? Join us and find out! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got swears galore. Josh is a potty mouth.

    Are you here with the bride or the groom? Quickly, take your seat. Here's some rice to throw after the ceremony, and would you like to get in on the betting pool of how far into the ceremony we went before one of them storms off? Quietly now, now go sit down... Ahem. Welcome one and all to the wedding of the century! Yes, we are here to celebrate the pending nuptials of Mr. Jason Kane and Miss Bernice Surprise Summerfield. Everyone's here. Look, there's Josh, Ashley, Rachel, and Jeff of the Oncoming Storm podcast. I'll bet they're working on episode 184 of their show while they want. The subject just has to be the grand 50th New Adventure, Happy Endings by Paul Cornell. They're probably gossiping about how all of the Doctor's new adventures get call backs, or the sensational scandals that arose in the days before the wedding. I did hear that Josh finally checked his twitter after two months, and has commented on all of those tweets this week! What a cad. But just wait until you hear about that Ace! The Oncoming Storm...

First up, we finally get to Blood of the Daleks part 2 by Steve Lyons, and the Lucie Miller arguments start! Next, Matt Smith reads The Runaway Train by Oli Smith. And the arguments about format and the Moffat era start! After that, we talk 45, by Mark Morris, Nick Scovell, Mark Michalowski, and Steven Hall. Honestly, we all pretty much agree on the great parts of this one. But finally, it's time to discuss 10th Doctor story Technophobia by Matt Fitton. And you guessed it, the arguments on Tennant and RTD start. It's gonna be one of those episodes. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got waaaaaay too many stories to discuss.

No, still the same group of amateur know-it-alls. Well then, how about reviewing Shakedown instead? Yes, it's the novel of the film you've never heard of, now with added Doctor Who! And its the return of Uncle Terrance to the New Adventures. I'm sure Josh will be thrilled. Hopefully Ashley, Jeff, and returning goddess Rachel can keep him straight. And after that, the team looks at the crowd funded 1960's British pop culture inspired team up book, The Imperium. And promptly awkwardly start discussing the 2nd Doctor's sex life. It's relevant, if icky. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Ogrons, Sontarans, and Rutans, Oh My!

    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.
