Ask the Geeky Girls -
Julia (juliaknitsjeff) from New Zealand asks:
In an effort to raise our 3 lovely kids in the geekiest way possible, last year we introduced them to Doctor Who and they LOVE it, but we are already up to Clara and we are watching them quickly so we are going to run out of episodes soon.
So I come to you two for suggestions of what show to watch next??? They are Lilly 12 Samuel 10 and Rose 8 who are already Star Wars, Marvel and Harry Potter fans.
