In the words of the Pet Shop Boys, "Doctored in mathematics, I could have been a don" (yeah, right...) so instead I'm working in statistics (or I was, until 2014). Now I'm working in a University, but not as a don.

Oh, and remember that many of the most heroic people are dandies - including the Third Doctor and the Scarlet Pimpernel as well as John Steed. Suave, sophisticated, stylish.
