As qeeky as I am, I am going to have to go with Matt on the Star-debate. Star Wars for the win. But I think I can redeem and excell my nerdiness with admitting that Judge Dredd kicks both of those out the park.

Could not agree more with the "affinity for inferior consoles" comment. SEGA for life.

I hate to say this, but I'm a little too similar to Matt's character here, with my obsession with various sports.

GAH! That's was clearly the 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver! There are 4th Doctor and 10th Doctor sonic screwdrivers available, and you only use the 11th Doctor one!!! NERD RAGE!!!!!

(I have the sonics and even the laser screwdriver!)

I believe a better line for the 4th Doctor would have been something along the lines of:
I'll show you my jelly babies
or
Let's make some jelly babies

But maybe that's just me.
Agreed. I think that line would've benefited from being a bit more esoteric.

I personally find if funny that there are so many common elements in Star Wars and Star Trek that are almost functionally identical but very slightly different. Star Trek goes to warp, Star Wars goes into hyper space. Star Trek has antimatter reactors, Star Wars has Hypermatter reactors. My personal favorite is that they both have the Photon torpedo.

They are very similar in many respects, but the feel of each universe is completely different.

Also, Star Trek is so much better it hurts. (I mean that. Star Wars depresses me with its squandered potential.)

We know. It was... it was a failing we had to accept.

That's 'Proton torpedo' you're thinking of in Star Wars, I believe.

You are, of course, correct.

This geek on geek violence has got to stop man!

Also somehow, Mat beating up his roommate feels familiar.
It´s not unappreciated, just.... familiar.

Super disapointed that for the 10th Doctor all they came up with is "I guess I'll show you my sonic screwdriver"?! Encyclopedic knowledge of Doctor Who my butt! 10th is an easy one:

"ALLONS-Y"!

I am profoundly disappointed. You can't have the 4th Doctor without a Jelly Babies reference.

And there's so much potential in 11's "I wear _____ now, _____'s are cool." Although adding in sexual situations can take it really scary places.

Hi there all, I wrote this.

Here's the extent of my Doctor Who knowledge at the time I wrote the script;

- There Are 11 Doctors, And They Are Numbered (by the fandom?)
- They Wear Different Stuff (scarves?)
- Sonic Screwdriver (?)
- Daleks? (look like tin cans with plungers attached)
- Inspector Spacetime >>> Doctor Who
