This sounds really interesting but a pity it is only 1 hour long. Professor Brian Cox enters the TARDIS with Matt Smith and explains the science behind the series

I think I can live with a new thread not jammed up with "I don't like celebrities" to lead the way

So may aswell have the trailer and a clip here.

I worry about the obsession with length that people on this forum appear to have: most BBC documentaries are 1 hour.

But they usually have more than 1 part though.

I wasn't demanding anything. I was just saying most BBC documentaries (and I was thinking of science documentaries) are usually more than one part.

Will it be good? Almost certainly. Will it be canon is the question on my mind, it looks like it will be set in-universe.

Time being relative, I'd definitely take a full-on hour over, a broken set of hours anytime...for a Lecture, obviously

What has that got to do with relativity?

Also unless you are planning to go into a gravitational field which has a noticeable change in strength or going near the speed of light then time being relative isn't an issue.

I am assuming John was making a lighthearted comment on what he would like to see as opposed to writing a science paper. I may be wrong.,.

As uni student, I am use to being taught in lectures, and they only last an hour anyway. If it is well delivered, a lot information can be covered.

Well it doesn't make any sense. And if he was writing a science paper he would be over 100 years too late.

I'm expecting it to be the low point of the 50th. After all, things can only get better.

I think Brian Cox is great.....so is Doctor Who! So I'll definitely be watching this one.
(I'm one of the geeks that likes watching those Xmas Science programmes on BBC at lunchtime!)

Enjoying this. As FOJ said. Very reminiscent of those wonderful Xmas lectures. Plus. A bit more Matt. We need to enjoy every second as they are running out!

What made you think it would be in-universe?
