SPOILERS: Series Five Episode Guide

Steven Moffat, the show's new headrunner, has revealed an exclusive episode in today's issue of the Radio Times and I've typed up every detail for you to read here. If you are going to copy and use it for your own website please credit The Oncoming Storm because this was very time consuming! Beware of spoilers, too!

Episode One - The Eleventh Hour

Writer: Steven Moffat

Synopsis: Geronimo! A brand new Doctor crashing to Earth. New face, new body, new man And he's barely staggered out of the blue box, before he's found himself in the middle of the Crisis That Just Won't Stop! No time to rest and recover, no TARDIS, no screwdriver - just six billion human beings about to die and only one man to save them. But the new Doctor encounters more than danger - this is the day he meets Amy Pond. Can he persuade her to trust him, when he's been letting her down all her life?

Quote: "Who da man?"

Episode Two - The Beast Below

Writer: Steven Moffat

Synopsis: The Doctor takes Amy to the far future, and Starship UK. The British people, adrift among the stars on a giant spaceship, in search of a new home. But there are secrets here, in the rusting corridors and clanging hallways. A masked figure, who knows the Doctor of old, begs his help, while Amy encounters the terrifying Smilers and uncovers a secret so dreadful, no one can remember it...

Quote: "Nobody talk to me! Nobody human has anything to say to me today!"

Episode Three - Victory of the Daleks

Writer: Mark Gatiss

Synopsis: From the terrifying future of the United Kingdom to one of the darkest chapters of its past - World War Two. The Doctor and Amy find themselves in a top secret cabinet war room deep beneath the London streets. And there, gliding among the nicotine walls and Bakelite telephones, the Daleks are hatching their deadliest scheme yet. Only one man can help the Doctor - but whose side is Winston Churchill on?

Quote: "I wanted to know what their plan was. I was their plan!"

Episode Four - The Time of Angels; Episode Five - Flesh and Stone

Writer: Steven Moffat

Synopsis: A two part story. A crashed spaceship, a shattered temple and a terrifying climb through the maze of the dead - River Song is back in the Doctor's life and she's brought more trouble than even he can handle. The last of the Weeping Angels is loose in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis, and the Doctor is recruited to track it down. "Don't blink!" everyone tells Amy - but as Amy is about to discover, not blinking might just be the worst thing you can do...

Quote: "Is River Song your wife?"

Episode Six - Vampires in Venice

Writer: Toby Whithouse

Synopsis: In Venice, even danger is beautiful. The House of Calvierri has the whole city under its protection, but something is very wrong. There are blood-drained corpses in the street, something lurks in the canal, and the Calvierri girls are the loveliest in town, except when you glance in the mirror...

Quote: "You know what's dangerous about you? Not that you ask people to take risks, but that you make them want to impress you!"

Episode Seven - Amy's Choice

Writer: Simon Nye

Synopsis: It's been five long years since Amy travelled in the TARDIS with her mysterious Doctor - and when he shows up again, on the eve of the birth of her first child, danger is not far behind him. Amy is faced with a heartbreaking choice that will change her life forever.

Quote: "Art can wait, this is life and death. We need to talk to Vincent van Gogh!"

Episode Eleven TBC

Writer: Gareth Roberts

Synopsis: The Doctor faces his greatest challenge yet - a flat share! People are disappearing on Aickman Road, and the Doctor must solve the mystery of a staircase that people walk up - but never down.

Quote: "All I have to do is pass as an ordinary human being. What could possibly go wrong?"

Episodes Twelve and Thirteen TBC

Writer: Steven Moffat

Synopsis: A message on the oldest cliff-face in the universe, a puzzle box opening from the inside and a love that lasts thousands of years... The Fates are drawing close around the TARDIS - is this the day the Doctor falls?

Quote: "There was a goblin. Or a trickster, or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it - one day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world."


The Radio Times have exclusively revealed some brilliant pictures of the brand new TARDIS interior. Only scroll down if you want to see them... these are fairly big spoilers, after all!

Note: Picture Failure

As you've probably noticed, Blogger has decided to mess up and not show any pictures - it's done this at the worst time possible, what with brand new TARDIS pictures being revealed and the latest DWM covers... Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon and I hope it doesn't cause you too much trouble. If it takes too long, though, I might have to kill Blogger.

I'm joking of course...

Karen Gillan Interview

Karen Gillan has recently been interviewed about Series Five and her upcoming role as Amy Pond, the Doctor's brand new assistant. In the past, it's clear to say that the relationship between the Doctor and his companion has always been interesting and she spoke a little about this:

"It’s fair to say she’s attracted to the Doctor, but I don’t think she’s in love with him. She’s not this love sick puppy following him around."

Despite this, in a recent trailer, the Doctor and Amy were seen to be kissing for a brief moment and she says, in response, "There is kissing, yes, but that will pan out as you watch the series."

Official Broadcasting Details!

The BBC have finally released the details about the Series Five starting date! The first episode, 'The Eleventh Hour,' starts at 6.25pm on Saturday 3rd April, and lasts for an hour. The synopsis is below:

The Doctor has regenerated into a brand new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover.

With the TARDIS wrecked, and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world – and only Amy Pond to help him.

It's so, so close now! Only 20 days to go! The countdowns can now commence...

Brand New Layout!

Well, here it is! The Oncoming Storm has undergone a regeneration and I hope you like the result! It's now completely ready for Series Five and there have been various additions here and there so please take a look around and leave some feedback - your thoughts are always appreciated!

Oh Mother!

Seeing as it's Mother's Day tomorrow for everybody in the UK, I thought I'd do a special post involving the mothers of Doctor Who. Every companion comes with a mother and not all of them (well, hardly any of them actually!) always like the Doctor. Here are the three examples from the new series...

Jackie Tyler
The mother of Rose, Jackie Tyler certainly isn't one to be quiet... She loves a good old cup of tea and originally called the Doctor a 'strange man in her bedroom!' Despite her ditziness and loud-mouthed nature, Jackie is loveable and was a firm favourite with fans.

Francine Jones
Francine is Martha Jones' mother and she certainly didn't approve of the Doctor at first. She knew he was dangerous and eventually got involved with Harry Saxon (the Master) who warned her of the dangers... She also slapped the Doctor and was imprisoned on the Master's ship.

Sylvia Noble
Donna's mother was Sylvia Noble and she was seen as a bit of a nagger, constantly hassling Donna to get a job. She didn't really approve when her daughter started travelling with the Doctor but did show her heroic side when she eventually saved her father Wilf by smashing a car windscreen with a hammer!

So there are the mothers, but who is your favourite? Do you even have a favourite? Please feel free to share your views as they're greatly appreciated.

- The site regeneration is tomorrow afternoon, so be sure to come back for that!

Rumours: The Doctor becomes a Lodger? (SPOILERS)

According to the Daily Star, episode eleven of the new series will be called 'The Lodger' and has been written by Gareth Roberts. They say that the Doctor sets the co-ordinates in the TARDIS to go into the future and the ship somehow ends up leaving him behind with Amy Pond travelling on her own!

In the mean time, the Doctor has to wait on Earth and ends up being a lodger of James Corden's character's flat. He ends up playing football with him, drinking in the pub and many other normal activities (filming pictures seem to confirm this.)

A programme insider has said, "“It’s going to be the funniest episode of the new series."

These are all rumours at the moment and hasn't been confirmed but the source is here. It's best not to believe in it all until it's shown on TV!

Behind the Scenes at SFX

The brand new 3D cover of SFX Magazine featuring the Doctor and Amy is out today and now the official website has released ten exclusive pictures of what happened during the photoshoot. To view them click here and thanks to Whovian Net for this news!

4 days until the blog regeneration...

New Look Coming Soon...

I've had this particular template for a looong time and it seems as though most other Bloggers seem to use it too (in some shape or form...) so I've decided to completely makeover the website with a brand new look, especially in time for Series Five. I've already picked the template and, with some help from Rob (of UDW), I'm working on adding everything.

The new look should be up by the end of the week, so please keep a look out for that!
