    It's Turkey Day once again in America, but don't let that fool you! This week's episode of The Oncoming Storm features a story that is no turkey! In between overly large family dinners, Josh, Ashley, and Rachel were able to bring to you a discussion about the final story in our month of anniversary specials, The Infinity Doctors by Lance Parkin. Published in celebration of the 35th Anniversary, this book is an odd bird, featuring a Doctor back on Gallifrey, who was married, facing off against Omega... but who supposedly looks like Paul McGann, but is NOT the 8th Doctor. Listen as your hosts try to make sense of it all, catch up on some old news, and Josh enters a level of fan theory that bewilders his co hosts! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've been killed!

    We're a podcast on an anniversary special. But probably not the one you were expecting.

No, not the one with those two babyfaces and the guy from "Alien" in it. Ashley, Josh, Rachel, Sacha, and special guest Dr. Scott Vigue are here to discuss The Light at the End by Nicholas Briggs, the Big Finish Anniversary special. 8 Doctors, 1 Master, and a slew of companions. Will it be a mess or a masterpiece? But before that, a certain minisode with big implications regarding Doctor Who spin off media is thoroughly analyzed. And we won't lie, drooled over. The Oncoming Storm... This time we've got a whole lotta McGann, and some validation at last. Life couldn't be better.

And what evil plot do the Daleks have this time? Would you believe a dastardly scheme to ... preserve Shakespeare??? Step through the looking glass with your hosts as they discuss topics like, "do we really need another Dalek story at this point?", or  "Why is Shakespeare in this at all???" The Oncoming Storm...
