Jedi, gamer, Ravenclaw, Whovian, and big damn hero. Jay grew up on a diet of Star Wars and Atari, so geekdom was a foregone conclussion. Now a family man, he spends most of his free time playing video games and turning his children into grade A geeklings.

While it says "Professional Whovian" on his business cards, there are few areas of geekdom that don't appeal to Jay. He brags about reading 3-4 books per week (yay audio books and a mindless job) and is always up to checking out the "new shiny" in the nerd world. He is currently pursuing his degree in video game design and development and his proudest achievement is getting put on a chocolate frog card.

The only reason Keir Hansen really wants the ability to time travel is to be able to get to all the content the geek community creates in a single day. A web dork and hack pixel-pusher by day, all spare hours are devoted to absorbing film and television, reading and writing sci-fi, a smattering of gaming, unlicensed attempts at mixology, culinary adventures, and novice cat wrangling.
He was once accused of being a "Jack of all trades", but that sounded too much like actual work, and the accuser has since been sacked. His particular passions include Whovianism (classic and new), the complete works of Douglas Adams, and anyone who offers a free sample of wine and/or chocolate, even when unmarked white vans are involved. (It's okay. He can run really quickly.)

Haley (known in some circles as AwsmEngrGrl) was born, raised, and educated in the flyover states of America.
She's been a fan of scifi and fantasy tv, books, and movies from a young age, and recently started reading all of the Marvel comics starting with Fantastic Four #1. All of them.

We return to one of our favorite past Whovian games, with the gracious responses by 100 of you to a series of questions about our favorite program. Some were trivia, some were opinion, all were worthwhile, and none were properly prepared for by our contestants, Haley and Jay.


Torchwood Rewatch: Day One (S1E2)

Chris Chibnall gives us a rather — interesting — sci-fi premise for the second outing of our Torchwood team. There’s a lot to enjoy, a lot to question, and even a bit of foreshadowing to seasons to come in this next episode installment.


Classic Rewatch: Image of the Fendahl

With all the best intentions (and the glowing skull of Eustace) we set out to fully enjoy this horror story from Series 15…but there are a few bumps along the way. Performances are enjoyable from both Baker and Jameson, and the supporting cast does a great job of punching up their roles to suit the story’s brooding horror. The script from Chris Boucher gives us a buffet-table of entertainment options to pick at. But is the meal satisfying once the dishes are cleared?


Just Put a TARDIS On It

On a quiet Whovian news week, we test our memory of dialogue, trying to remember which character uttered a particular statement from the modern episodes. From phrases that could easily be a number of Doctor’s regenerations, to companions that seem to make very similar observations, Keir puts on his ill-fitting gamekeeper’s hat, and puts Jay and Haley to the test.


Classic Rewatch: The Invisible Enemy

We didn’t have particular concerns about jumbo shrimp until this Season 15 story came around. Now we feel a bit ‘nerve-ous’ around them. (Get it? Brain? Nerve? *sigh*)


Whose Line WAS It, Anyway? (Revisited)

Classic Rewatch: Horror of Fang Rock

Jeremy Radick joins us again a the top of Season 15 for a nice, leisurely tour of a lighthouse on a perfectly serene evening. Everything is just fine. Nothing unusual or alarming.


They Deserve More Time

We task ourselves this week with identifying just a few of the briefly-met characters who we wish had another opportunity, large or small, to return to the program. It could be a passing cameo, a where-are-they-now glimpse into their lives after having met and interacted with the Doctor, or even a full episode adventure with them past, present, or future.


Classic Rewatch: The Talons of Weng-Chiang

With an attempt to acknowledge the quality of the storyline while remaining keenly aware of the careless, and inarguably racist execution, we delve into the six-part conclusion to Season 14 and all the issues it brings to light.
