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.)

This week, we tie on our bibs and tuck in to a heaping coil of antimatter with “The Tsuranga Conundrum”, marking the midpoint in Series 11. We’re all in agreement that this is stock-in-trade, dare we say “classic” Doctor Who, involving a complex set of interwoven challenges, limited time, interesting but not distracting supporting characters, and a blend of scientific wonder and oddball humor from our Doctor.
