I just cannot listen to his voice. I've just had to ask DH to change the channel because I was getting all irritated.

Am I alone?

You mean professor Brian Cox?

No you are completely NOT alone! I spent ages last night trying to explain to DH how creepy I find him! Dh was not very impressed, he thinks Prof Cox is wonderful. Blech.

His voice is weird, his skin is too smooth... And women think he's some kind of sex symbol. It's very odd.

I think he's interesting and knowledgeable, but very wet and Frank Spencery.

That's why I'm on the iPad - dh seems to think the sun shines out of his arse

MrsBucketxx Sun 24-Feb-13 21:19:26

he isnt creepy, just very boring I struggle to keep awake watching every week.

I think he is lovely blush not sure what it is about him.

His wife is a MNetter.

yes professor, i knew he had a fancy name.

i like science, i enjoy what he says, but I wish he would hire somebody else to say it.

nevergoogle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:22:53

He's not creepy!! He's dishy! He seems like such a free spirit

emsibub Sun 24-Feb-13 21:29:15

I definitely would!

UnrequitedSkink Sun 24-Feb-13 21:29:59

I read an article once written by his wife about what it was like living with a man and knowing other women would be all over him given half a chance. I found it really interesting, although I am unlikely to ever be in that position. wink

Heehee I thought you meant the "other" Brian Cox grin now I find HIM creepy!

Cotapaxi Sun 24-Feb-13 21:32:01

I love his programmes, very interesting and he is pretty inoffensive and easy on the eye.

JakeBullet Sun 24-Feb-13 21:32:44

His wife is a MNer you sau?

JakeBullet Sun 24-Feb-13 21:33:56

His programmes are fab though. Have LOVED this series. ...bought the book and recorded every episode. Fascinating stuff.

nevergoogle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:36:38

Really? His voice doesn't make your hands go all claw-y?

sadeyedladyofthelowlandsase Sun 24-Feb-13 21:40:26

I can listen to him on the radio and not be annoyed, but I can't watch him on the telly.

I imagine he'd be a feathery stroker (apologies to Mrs Cox).

nevergoogle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:41:40

grin at feathery stroker

<barges on to thread>

Do you mean Mr Gia?

grin

'Hi, it's me - Professor Briiiiiiiiian Cox. I'm just like you. . . . but a bit more science-y!' Sketch from V.I.P. - can't find link sorry.

But absolutely not taking the piss cos I fancy brainy geysers!
