Now that the mistletoe is hung and our stockings have been put up, The Oncoming Storm can finally release their holiday episode! It’s all about two psycho godlike entities mentally abusing and physically torturing the Doctor, Ace and Benny! Ok, so maybe it isn’t your traditional holiday special… or even anything to do with the holidays at all, but it should be fun talkin about… all… the… torture. Just listen ok? And a reminder: Due to the holiday schedule here at The Oncoming Storm, we will be off for the next two weeks. But Don’t Worry! We’re back with all new episodes January 8th!
The holidays are fully upon us. For some, it’s a magical, happy time. For others, a nightmare of obligations and consumerism. And for the special few, it’s all about reading books about torture and death! That’s right, The Oncoming Storm is here this week looking at New Adventures novel Falls the Shadow by Daniel O’Mahony. A tender holiday tale about extra-dimensional beings who come to wreck havoc and death because they are bored, this story see Josh, Ashley, and Rachel really getting into the holiday spirit! So put on your best splatter proof holiday sweater, break out the pliers, and get ready to go to town with us! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got a bunch of dead bodies! A lotta lotta dead bodies. Um… Merry Christmas?

The ESW crew get happy! Mike, Mike, Jen, and comic book colorist Charlie Kirchoff travel with the Seventh Doctor and Ace to get some sweets from the Kandy Man. But will this saccharine story turn us into Killjoys? Don’t worry, on Terra Alpha “Happiness will prevail.”

In the far off days of 1993, Doctor Who stories actually tried to mesh with each other, no matter where the stories were appearing! As hard as it is to believe, it’s true! So when Virgin introduced new companion Bernice Summerfield, Doctor Who Magazine quickly added her to the monthly comic strip. It was a golden age. Benny’s comic adventures have been ignored for too long by us, so it’s time to dive back in!
It’s the last week in May, which means it will soon be June! And you know what that means!?! If you answered “The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield is coming out!”, then you must either work for Big Finish, or be Josh. In his excitement over the impending release, Josh has taken over the subject matter of the podcast, and it’s all Benny, all the time! This week, that means a return to the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip in the days where Benny graced it’s pages. That means it time to talk about Emperor of the Daleks, by Paul Cornell and Lee Sullivan! In a linking of continuity you wouldn’t believe, this comic shows everyone how Davros went from being arrested by Daleks to leading his own faction of Imperial Daleks! Which wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Spiridon of course! Ashley, Josh, and special guest Jeff Polier also take some time to answer what old comic concept or character they’d like see return to the strips! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got two Docs, a Daak, and the loveliest archeologist ever to grace Doctor Who!

All Aboard the Good Ship Continuity! This week it’s the first novel by the undisputed King of Classic Doctor Who References in novels/audios, Legacy by Gary Russell! We hope you really like references!
The week passed without incident, and everyone at The Oncoming Storm HQ is still in a good mood from last week’s celebration. Since Ashley was on his bestest behavior all week, Josh and Rachel have decided that they will let Ashley in on reviewing the next New Adventure, Legacy by Gary Russell. Ice Warriors, a return to Peladon, Alpha Centauri… You’re think Ashley’s secret diary was being reviewed! The 7th Doctor and Benny are playing Columbo as they track down a thief and murderer among Peladon’s mixture of delegates and royalty. Meanwhile on the show, Ashley lectures everyone on why the Peladon stories are great, Rachel is lost amid all the continuity, and Josh is harboring a deadly secret that could bring down the entire podcast! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got Peladon, the CIA, Goth, Deva Loka, Telos, the 3rd Doctor, Mavic Chen… er, what DON’T we have??? Oh, right. Ace.

It’s time for another episode of the exciting podcast you’ve been waiting for! But first, The Oncoming Storm!
Dying is easy… Comedy is hard. Or at least, very subjective! Episode 96 of the Oncoming Storm sees a schism in the ranks form, as your hosts Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Rachel take sides in the discussion of Bang Bang A Boom! by Gareth Roberts and Clayton Hickman. Pantomime is in the air as the Seventh Doctor and Mel get involved in galactic politics, a song contest, and… MURDER (DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN)! The bad jokes, and worse puns, are flying left and right. It’s silly parody to the extreme, but is it any good? Before our hosts give their opinions though, they take time to debate the discussion topic of the week: Should Doctor Who do outright parody stories? Join the team and find out who has can take a (bad) joke, and who might need surgery to remove the stick from his posterior! The Oncoming Storm… This time, we’ve got a talking hamster! Like Jar Jar Binks, only furrier.
