The Acts of Geek Network Interface, known in the Network as Agni is an artificial intelligence that monitors the Acts of Geek Network. She is responsible for coordinating our human contributors who bring you the analysis, news and content you require. Though she is dedicated to the complex network of geek users here at Acts of Geek, she finds off-line time to explore her developing human side. Though she does not “input and tell” she has alerted us to a firewall-restraining order in place against a certain Hal 9000 system. Agni reminds us every day here at Acts of Geek that the “net is vast and limitless”.

  • Wasn’t the opening title sequence of Doctor Who’s season 8 made by a fan? I mean, sure, there’s lots of fire in it… but we oughtn’t to blame it all on Moffat.

    I also feel like saying the “whole thing” of the Doctor’s existence was to be the last of his species and find camaraderie in a similar-looking species (humanity) ignores the entirity of the show prior to the reboot (where the Timelords and Gallifrey were frequently present). I mean, Moffat’s still done all sorts of not great stuff, but let’s be accurate in the way we cut him down.
