    Youtube link, for everyone outside of the UK:

    If you didn't get the chance to watch Brian Cox's lecture on the science of Dr Who here is the BBC link for the program, let me also say it was fascinating to watch especially the explanations of SR and references to black holes and time travel.

    BBC iPlayer - The Science of Doctor Who

    Does he ever say, "Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey"? My decision to watch or not hinges upon the answer.

    Lol, you know I can honestly say that was not something I was looking out for, but anything is possible. I would bet a years supply of beer though that Russel Brand has said that.

    Unfortunately, unless you have a proxy that makes you appear to be in the UK you will not be able to access BBC i-player.

    Brian Cox + Doctor Who couldn't be anything but awesome.

    Not to be asinine, but you're supposed to spell out Doctor, too.

    Unfortunately, this is apparently true. Maybe the video is somewhere else.
