    Normally your hosts, Josh Wilson and Ashley Raburn get along just fine. But in The Oncoming Storm Episode 52, there is dissention in the ranks! Is it over this week's Big Finish/AudioGo story in the Destiny of the Doctor series, Shadow of Death by Simon Guerrier? No, they both seem to really like the story itself. Maybe there is some Doctor Who news that has them in a tizzy? No, it's a pretty light news week. No folks, it's all about some shadows, ones that don't really have a thing to do with this particular story. Once they are able to set aside their differences, there is talk related to the actual story, with praises sung about Frazer Hines, Josh's writer tiers, and the sad lack of Wendy Padbury. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we DON'T have the bloody Vashta Nerada. Seriously. I mean it.

The 2nd Doctor is in McCoy territory, as he and Jamie face the Archons, an evil from the Dawn of Time(tm)! Will these two stories make your hosts change their minds about their respective series? Or does the catastrophe continue? Listen and marvel at the difference a month can make! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a Scotsman in a kilt! We've been to cons, we KNOW that's a big draw!

Love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying that Christopher Bulis left his mark on Doctor Who in the wilderness years, racking up 12(!) books full of trad stories and plots. This week, Ashley and Josh are looking at Bulis's first foray into writing, 1993's Shadowmind. The Doctor, Ace, and Benny are on another vacation... so obviously it must go wrong, with duplicates and gestalt creatures aplenty. Oh and military hardware. Lots and lots of military hardware.

That's right, This week Josh and Ashley are heading back to WWII with Colditz by Steve Lyons. Josh remembers it as one of his favorites of early Big Finish? Does it still hold up, or should it be locked away forever in an inescapable castle? There's talk of David Tennant's accent, alternate timeline clichés, and sweet, lovely Klein. The Oncoming Storm... This time, We've got the 10th Doctor. Well... kinda. If the 10th Doctor were an utter bastard with a naff accent. So hey, it IS the 10th Doctor!

But never fear, because that stuff will be covered next week, and now The Oncoming Storm is proud to bring you their coverage of the next in line of the New Adventures, Doctor Who and the Zombies! Er, we mean White Darkness by David A McIntee. And it's not just about zombies! No, there's Ancient Things from the Dawn of Time(tm), evil Germans, and Voodoo practicing Haitians too!

    Direct Podcast Download

    Episode 45 of The Oncoming Storm is all about The Big Finish story The Eye of The Scorpion by Iain McLaughlin. At least, it's supposed to be. Your hosts Ashley and Josh however, seem to be all over the place this week, in a effort to talk about anything but! Oh, all of the usual topics are touched on, but your hosts seem to be more interested in delving into questions like, "Should new companions be stuck into gaps between stories?" or "Where are all of the historical companions?". How about that age old conundrum, "Why doesn't preventing Erimem from becoming pharaoh piss off Time like that whole Charley thing?" It's a rambley old time in episode 45! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got, oh I dunno... some alien scorpions or something? I was busy with the powerpoint on why we need a historical companion again.

    The Oncoming Storm takes it first look into the world of The Forge in episode 44! It's the first Project story from Big Finish, Project: Twilight by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright, and Josh can't wait for all of the sparkly vampires and love stories to start! Sadly corrected of those plot point, Josh and Ashley take a bit of the story proper, and get exposed to the nastiest vampire gangsters you'd ever want to meet! Proper sound effects for mutilation and bone breaking are discussed, along with proper blood splatter clean up treatments and which of the bad guy groups are worse. Yeah, it's that kinda story. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got NO sparkly vampires or shirtless werewolves. In a story called Twilight! Isn't there some sort of YA fiction rule being broken here???

    So it's come to this. The inevitable can no longer be put off. It's time to go once more, into the abyss. Yes, it's The Oncoming Storm episode 43, the conclusion to Star Trek / Doctor Who. Your hosts Ashley and Josh aren't happy about it, the readers couldn't have been happy about it, and we suspect the listeners won't be too happy about it. But it has to be done. It's so bad that Josh can't even be bothered to correct Ashley's pronunciation of Locutus. Will your hosts have the strength to make it through 4 issues of this??? Josh and Ashley know one thing for sure, if they never have to see a discussion between Picard, the Doctor, and Guinan agaib, they will have lived a good life. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we're got more talking... and talking... oh dear lord, the talking. It will forever haunt the boring places of our dreams.

    It's episode 42 of The Oncoming Storm! Your hosts Josh and Ashley are back for their first recording of the new year, and there's a ton to catch up on! After cutting through the swath of news stories and announcements, instead of being witty and making some Douglas Adams connection in this episode, your dauntless hosts are back at the New Adventure grindstone, and looking at the debut novel for some authors who you'll see crop up in Doctor Who circles for years to come. This week, Lucifer Rising by Andy Lane & Jim Mortimore is in the hot seat. As the Doctor, Ace, and Benny investigate a murder mystery on a scientific station, Josh and Ashley talk about Ace's character arc, the Doctor's dirty deeds, and Benny being, well, Benny.  There's misery and death to be had, as well as lots of continuity references...

    It's time for episode 39 of The Oncoming Storm, and it's an uphill battle for your hosts Josh and Ashley. There was bad internet connections, horrible call quality, and non recording computers, but never fear! Your hosts fought tooth and nail to bring you another excellent discussion (though they do apologise for the state the episode is in). Nevertheless, The topic this week is Mike Tucker's Dust Breeding, a fine example on what a surprise reveal can do for a story. Trust us kids, you want to make sure you've listened to the story before you listen to this one. The surprise is discussed in detail, and Ashley is smarter then all of us by not being surprised at all! Also discussed, more accents from Big Finish, mishandled performances, and the news for December 2012. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got... well, that would be telling wouldn't it?

    It's The Oncoming Storm episode 38 and this time Ashley and Josh are discussing the man who may have killed more Daleks than the Doctor himself, Abslom Daak! Your hosts are looking at the four original main stories featuring Daak from Doctor Who Magazine. These stories include "Abslom Daak Dalek Killer" the two halves of "Star Tigers", and "Nemesis of the Daleks". As Ashley is dancing around for Abslom Daak, there is talk of who should play Daak (Well Ashley does, with time passed Josh now picks Gerard Butler), Daak's connection to the British comics scene, and just how did a guy like Daak get such a reputation which just 4 short comic stories? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Daak for reals! And honestly, he's just as smelly and ill tempered as that pesky clone last week. But way not as rapey.

    Ace is Back! And so is The Oncoming Storm, as Josh and Ashley look at Deceit by Peter Darvill-Evans. It's the New Adventure debut of "New" Ace- leather bodysuit, mirrored sunglasses and all. And how are your hosts taking to this latest adventure? Well, Ashley is impressed with the all of the space ships and giant brain gestalts, but Josh is in a mood over bad stereotypes. There's debate over sex (again), editorial presence, or the lack thereof (again), and whether a faulty clone can explain it all (ok that's a new one). The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Daak! Well kind of. Now with new and improved sexual harassment power!

    After the brief Thanksgiving interruption, The Oncoming Storm is back on track looking at our next audio adventure, Loups Garoux by Marc Platt. Your hosts Josh and Ashley are very familiar with Mr. Platt's work, and can't wait to dig into another example of his writing. Does Loups Garoux live up to their expectations? Well Josh is gushing and Ashley is complaining about Episode 2 and the lack of explanations. A heated debate breaks out. Exactly what type of mythical creatures do your hosts want in Doctor Who? When they're not talking werewolves and the explanations thereof, Turlough and the Doctor's love life is examined, accents are discussed(again), and Josh tries for the world record in overuse of the word "fantastic". The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got werewolves on a train. Insert bad, outdated Samuel L. Jackson joke here.

    This week, it's the American holiday of Thanksgiving, and the celebration has made it to The Oncoming Storm headquarters. Thanksgiving is notable for for 2 main traditions in America, that of giving thanks for all of the things we have in life, and sitting down in front of a giant bird in supplication before it is eaten. With that in mind, your hosts Josh and Ashley are stepping away form the normal release schedule for a moment and looking at Doctor Who's very own giant talking bird, Frobisher! That means this week's topic is The Maltese Penguin by Robert Shearman. This subscriber special puts Frobisher into his very own detective story, and your hosts are discussing life without the Doctor, Colin Baker's accent work, and playing spot the witty reference! That's not all this week either, as Josh and Ashley, in keeping with the season, pick their turkey's of the year, and find a little something to give thanks for. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a dame to kill for, AND "Peter Lorre"! How could anyone not like that???

Episode 35 in fact, and those scalawags Josh and Ashley are lookin' at a doozy of a story, Minuet in Hell by Alan W. Lear & Gary Russell. Yessir, those boys are deep in the south of America... or least what people think what the south of America is like, much to these southern boys chagrin. There's talk about accents... a whole mess o' talk about accents. Once that's out of the way, Josh and Ashley somehow find some time to actually talk about the plot of the story, whether it's debating the merits of sending old men on spy missions, or if demons have a place in Doctor Who. Sit down with a nice mint julep, kick up those feet, and join us won't you? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got Foghorn Leghorn. Or Boss Hogg. Take your pick. No really, take him. We don't want him.

    Another week, another slightly belated episode due to management incompentance! But you hosts are glad you could make it for a look at something off the beaten track. The Oncoming Storm is heading back to comic territory, and this time, it's ones that are actually good! Come back to the days where if you wanted Doctor Who comics, you had to look in Doctor Who Magazine. In these golden days, the comics actually tied into the ongoing New Adventures in one big continuity lovefest. This week, it's Benny's first comic appearance as we look at "Pureblood" from DWM 193-196, as well as a single issue story "Flashback" from the DWM Summer special '94. Josh and Ashley talk continuity clashes, Benny's wardrobe choices, and the secret identity of that one guy who looks like William Hartnell (Shh! It's the First Doctor! Don't tell Ashley I told you!) The Oncoming Storm... this time we've got potato heads. Not the nice kind though, the kind that invade you and take your home for a new homeworld. That kind.

    This is where you would normally be welcomed to the newest episode of The Oncoming Storm, episode 33 in fact. But this time, your hosts just can't seem to gather the will to do it. You see, they've just read and talked about The Pit by Neil Penswick. It has sucked all of the humor out of them. They were lucky to escape with their lives. And if that doesn't tempt you to listen to this episode, nothing will. Luckily for you, you don't actually have to read the thing, you can just listen to this episode to suffer vicariously through Josh and Ashley's anguish. And there's talk of weeks old news!

    The Oncoming Storm... this time, we're just kidding. It's not all that bad... or is it??? dun dun DUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNN

The way he's everywhere in these audios, they'll be putting him on the tv show next! Will Ashley and Josh like this one as much as they liked The Mutant Phase & Dalek Empire? Listen as the merits of retreading old ground, Ashley's inabilty to imagine without correct cover art, and Josh's attempts not to be Negative Nancy are all discussed. That, and some breaking news! The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have nasties on an old spaceship, both human and Cyber! And no, Mr. Saward, it's not Earthshock, we promise.

    It's the second episode of the week for The Oncoming Storm.

This week, your hosts are looking at the entire first series of the seminal Dalek Empire stories, by the multi talented Nicholas Briggs. It's a series of stories WITHOUT the Doctor! And <gasp> the Daleks have never been better for it! Listen as Ashley and Josh discuss just how well the Daleks fare without the Doctor around to hog all the glory, the insanity of Dalek planning, and just how many traitors can fit into one series!

    We're back! It's a belated mid week episode of The Oncoming Storm! While we apologise for the delay, we have a special treat for you. We're looking at the debut novel of prolific Who writer Gareth Roberts, writer of many a Who novel and television episode. How does the writer of such episodes as The Lodger and Closing Time do in his 1st attempt? Pretty well if you ask us! See where it all began for Mr. Roberts as Josh and Ashley examine the New Adventure The Highest Science. What is the secret of the Highest Science? What does a train of English commuters and some drugged out hippies have to do with it? And what's a Chelonian? You may just find these answers in The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got giant talking turtles, but they aren't interested in sharing any pizza!

    Direct Podcast Download

    Ok, this is getting ridiculous. For the second episode in a row, your hosts Josh and Ashley have failed to record the episode the first time through. So welcome, for the second time to your hosts, to Episode 26! This time the focus is once again on the crossover of the century, Star Trek/Doctor Who! Your hosts are looking at issues 3 & 4, in the desperate hope that something actually happens with this whole Borg/Cyberman team up thing. This being the second attempt to make this episode, it is a little truncated, but it's not the size that counts, right? Right? Um, well, do enjoy the discussion of needless decompression, shifting art styles, and the proper way to hold sonic screwdrivers. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have Tom Baker and William Shatner! Who needs those new guys?!?

    Josh and Ashley are behind the 8 ball here in the 25th episode of The Oncoming Storm. After recording a really excellent episode, technical issues sent it to podcast heaven, never to be heard again. Your hosts have persevered however, and come back to record it again! So for the second time, Josh and Ashley are looking at this month's New Adventure, Transit by Ben Aaronovitch. Yes, yes, the one with all the naughty bits in it. Josh and Ashley tackle the issue head on... which leads to a wildly debated tangent on what exactly can and should be included in Doctor Who. And then somehow the canon debate gets brought up. But don't worry, they DO talk about Transit... eventually. Oh, and they briefly talk about Asylum of the Daleks, so if you don't want to hear about it, skip past the 4 minute mark ;) The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got Prostitutes, Joyboys, and Catfood Monsters! The future, everyone!

    Back on schedule for episode 24! This week, Josh and Ashley are looking at one of Ashley's favorite audios, though he's not quite sure just why he loves it so darn much. Yes, it's time to look at The Holy Terror by Rob Shearman, in all of it's bloody, penguin filled glory! And boy, things get deep this week, as your hosts discuss religion and ceremony, and debate the ethics of killing technologically created beings. HOW MUCH MASS MURDER HAVE YOU COMMITTED STOMPING ON GOOMBAS??? (And yes, this topic actually does come up.) Join us, won't you? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have a creepy, mass murdering kid! On second thought, maybe we should exchange him for something...

    Hey, we're back! Better late then never with the 23rd episode of the Oncoming Storm! Sorry for the delay, but unforseen technical issues made it impossible to get the episode up on time. But we're back, and The Oncoming Servers are up and better then ever! And in this belated episode, your hosts Josh and Ashley are looking at a special treat, as Big Finish goes all New Adventure and brings us an audio featuring The Doctor, Ace and Benny! Yes, it's The Shadow of the Scourge by Paul Cornell. Everything is all master plans and betrayals in this adventure set between An All-Consuming Fire and Blood Harvest. This means, while we have just met Benny in our NA episodes, this story is well into the heart of the New Adventures. But don't worry, your hosts are here to guide you through it all and keep you up to speed. Sit back and enjoy, and let them do all the work! The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've all got third arms! It's a giant insect thing, you wouldn't understand.

    Josh and Ashley are back for the 22nd episode of The Oncoming Storm, and this time, they're heading further back into the show's history then normal! They have set the wayback machine for 1979 and the premiere of a little magazine called Doctor Who Weekly. That's right, it's time for some classic comics, and it doesn't get much more classic then Doctor Who and the Iron Legion by Pat Mills and Dave Gibbons! Yes, THAT Dave Gibbons! It's a meeting of eras, where the kidcentric Doctor Who strips of the past meet some 2000AD sensibilities. Join your hosts as they discuss rude looking aliens, crazy plot contrivances, and ask "What exactly IS the Doctor doing with that dip stick???" The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have a parrot headed robot! Yeah, that's what we said too.

    The Oncoming Storm is now officially legal! And what better way to celebrate then with one of the classics of the New Adventures range, Love and War by Paul Cornell. If that's not enough, your hosts Josh and Ashley are joined by a special guest, Matt Kramer of the Legion of Substitute Podcasters! Matt has his work cut out for him to get a word in however, as Josh and Ashley are at it again, with Josh singing the praises of the book, and Ashley not quite ready to nominate it as a holy artifact just yet. There's discussion on teenage angst, the murder of Colin Baker, and Benny of course. And the ultimate question is raised: "Why exactly does Ace fall for that dirty hippy"? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we have murderous, blood drinking fungi! You'll never look at a portabella the same way again after this one!

    Oy, that's a long way to go for an episode title innit?

    WARNING: THIS PODCAST WAS CREATED UNDER EXTREME SLEEP DEPRIVED CONDITIONS. It's late at night, but Ashley and Josh still have a podcast to do, though they probably really shouldn't! They are looking at a gem of a historical, The Fires of Vulcan by Steve Lyons. Your hosts really seem to like it, even if they have issues making coherent sentences come out of their mouths. Join them as they wonder just how it is they now seem to really like Mel, mispronounce every name in the story, and debate which lava filled Doctor Who story set in Pompei they like best. The Oncoming Storm... This time we've got nothing. Just make it a drinking game or something. One drink for everytime Ashley says I agree, one for when Josh stumbles over a word, and down the whole thing when Josh finds himself rambling on about The Aztecs and is unable to find a point.

Meanwhile, Ashley is ready for a story back in space with all of the aliens and spaceships he can handle! Will this story find a place in Ashley's heart?

This time, we have lazer blasts! Lots of em! ... Did I mention that there's laser blasts? Oh, and explosions! Yep, quite a lot of em... Isn't that exciting???

We dive into the challenges of putting together such a book. Just when Lars thinks its safe, Josh pulls out the thumbscrews to force answers about Fluid Links and Lars's favorite spinoff media.
