The Science of Doctor Who - Synopsis

The BBC Media Centre has released the synopsis for a one-off program investigating the science of Doctor Who, presented by Professor Brian Cox:

For one night only, Professor Brian Cox explores the universe of the world’s favourite Timelord, Doctor Who.

Brian takes an audience, with the help of celebrity guests, on a journey into the wonderful universe of The Doctor, in a specially recorded programme from the lecture theatre of the Royal Institution of Great Britain.

Brian reveals the science behind the spectacle and explains the physics that allows Doctor Who to travel through space and time. Fun, but filled with real science, it’s a special night for Who fans as well anyone with a thirst for understanding.

Brian is in the unique position of knowing the Doctor’s universe inside out as well as the reality behind the drama. When the Tardis travels through time and space, Brian understands the physics involved. And when it comes to life on other planets, Brian knows the real science that could prove extra-terrestrial life might just really exist in our galaxy.
