There are more and more “geek” characters on TV and film these days, and in books as well. Sometimes they’re science fiction fans, and sometimes they are just impossibly good at computers. Which of the descriptions is realistic, which insulting, and which unduly flattering? With DougS, Tracy Berg, Anna Feruglio Dal Dan, Phil Dyson and Pat McMurray.

Middle-aged, fat, balding British bloke, fond of beer. Could reasonably be called a Doctor Who fan. Knows all about virtualisation, mail servers, active directory, routers, firewalls and so on. Occasionally acts as a priest if the real thing's unavailable.
