The Oncoming Storm Ep 210: NA Retrospective and Goodbyes
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.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 209: NA #61 The Dying Days
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
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
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!
