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.

Classic Rewatch: The Invasion of Time

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Pitting our heroes against not one but two formidable adversaries, we look at the six-part coup d’êtat story that ends not only the 15th classic season, but a very important relationship as well. We discuss the unexpected nature of this “Agnew”-penned season closer, the ever-changing nature of the conflict that helps maintain interest through a six-part story, and the unusual performances of Baker and Jameson, given the timing of the production.


The Thingamajig of the Daleks

Power, Genesis, Asylum, Master Plan, Invasion…five decades of Dalek mayhem launches a lot of schemes for ultimate domination. What if we took a random term like “the marriage of”, and extracted a Dalek plot from it?


Torchwood Rewatch: Cyberwoman (S1E4)

We test the limits of our “find the good in everything” zeitgeist as we press on through the fourth episode of Torchwood’s first season. It’s…a thing that aired.


Classic Rewatch: Underworld

With a slow and steady float down a tunnel of diminishing quality, we reach the core of the penultimate Season 15 story, “Underworld”.


Planning the Series 11 Drinking Game

This week, we workshop the rules, rewards, and risks with developing a watch-along drinking game for any S11 episode. (This is what happens when we’re left without new content for too long.)


Torchwood Rewatch: Ghost Machine (S1E3)

The third episode of the first Torchwood season appears to be a bit of “viewer’s ret-con” for most of us, as we can’t really recall any details having seen the story in years past…though we know we did.


Classic Rewatch: The Sun Makers

We all conclude that this Season 15 satire by story editor Robert Holmes is one of the gems of the Fourth Doctor era, as humorous as it is scathing.

Family Who-ed, 2019 Edition

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.
