I have watched sc-fi/alternative culture programs since I can remember. The 6pm BBC2 slot was the best. The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Avengers, Dr Who. This was my escapism place and much encouraged by my Dad. I knew how to list all the Doctors before I left primary school. Being a female nerd in high school is something that needs skipping over.... At Uni we watched Buffy and Angel and reshows of Red Dwarf after the pub.
I moved to Oxford in 2000. After a while I found the alternative crowd and I met my husband to be.
After we first clicked the reason why my husband and I worked was due to my extreme SciFi knowledge. We sit and can argue the benefits of various series. The fact that we don't always agree gives us balance of what we watch and ables us to be critical of what we dislike. I am "the reader" of the family as he has Uni work. I adore reading fantasy, sci fi and try to support British authors. Current obsessions are: Jim Butcher, Emma Newman and Benedict Jacka.
