Wonders of the Solar System

Posted on March 11, 2010


Brian Cox.

Science geek whose infectious enthusiasm and misleading naivety manifests itself in a hypnotic combination of lilting tones and an engagingly andregonous face. Someone to be admired.

His writing exudes the passion he obviously feels about his subject. He communicates those core emotions whether he’s voicing his script or if he’s called upon to enthuse to camera.

Someone to be valued. That doesn’t necessarily mean pound signs. It means acknowledging a few home truths.

This bloke is a good bloke. We need to hang on to him. What he does is good.

And, he’s cool.

And, I loathe science.
