Relive the discussion as host Kiernan Mac, along with returning guests Simon Colverson and Chris the Whovian, delves into discussing if the television show “Doctor Who” provides a politically correct image of British culture. Are the mannerisms and habits of the “Doctor” and his companions representative of real life Brits? Does the first “Doctor” an individual watches and the nostalgia experienced watching said “Doctor” contribute to ones favorite “Doctor”? Would you like a jelly baby? Grab your jelly babies and let’s find out. Only on, the “Whovember” episode of, Geek On!
