...and therefore to encourage the DCs to watch his programmes because, after all, they are educational?

OnIlkelyMoorBahtat Wed 29-Jul-15 10:24:21

Agreed! He's lovely <goes a bit misty-eyed>

squoosh Wed 29-Jul-15 10:29:11

What is it you like the most? The perma-smile that says 'I am a deeply creepy person'.

NoSOHisadealbreaker Wed 29-Jul-15 10:29:55

YANBU to think it....and he clearly agrees with you, but I'm afraid I don't grin. <gives me the willies and not in a good way emoticon>

the physicist or the actor - cos' one of them is not what you'd call ermmmmmmm gorgeous......

NoSOHisadealbreaker Wed 29-Jul-15 10:31:17

...unless of course you mean Brian Cox the Scottish actor who is truly admirable imho

Squoosh Couldn't have put it better myself!

Waves to Somewhere though we may not be on precisely the same page!

I used to encourage my DS to watch deadly sixty for Steve Backshall related reasons.

CherryBonBon Wed 29-Jul-15 10:33:49

Yes, particularly hot in Troy I thought.

IPlayBass Wed 29-Jul-15 10:35:52

His wife is on here (if you mean the physicist).

NoSOHisadealbreaker Wed 29-Jul-15 10:39:59

<Waves to Mrs Brian Cox> No offence...I doubt you would much fancy my DH either (although he is a great fan of yours!)

NoSOHisadealbreaker Wed 29-Jul-15 10:41:16

(although he is a great fan of yours!)

By this I mean he is a great fan of your DH. I am sure he would be a fan of you too!

SomewhereIBelong Wed 29-Jul-15 10:45:52

<waves back> no - not on that page at all.....

He looks exactly like one of those old-fashioned ventriloquists' dummies. I keep expecting him to say "Gottle of geer" and "Gread and Gutter". Gorgeous is the last thing I would call him.

I mean that very caringly of course.

WitchofScots Wed 29-Jul-15 11:14:36

The physicist, although in the light of morning without the benefit of a couple of glasses of wine he's looking somewhat different...Steve Backshall on the other hand.....

throckenholt Wed 29-Jul-15 11:24:32

I can't watch his programs - I find them tedious because he takes so long to say anything. His subjects I find interesting - just his particular programs send me to sleep ! I have pondered whether that is his style or down to the producer/director.

MiaowTheCat Wed 29-Jul-15 11:25:58

I'm always distracted by his inconsistently disappearing and reappearing grey hairs.

KingJoffreyLikesJaffaCakes Wed 29-Jul-15 11:26:03

Really? He looks like Pete Burns.

My mum fancies him too. Would you like her number so you can discuss him?

TheyGotTheMustardOut Wed 29-Jul-15 11:28:37

I used to fancy him, then I followed him on Twitter, now, not so much.

WitchofScots Wed 29-Jul-15 11:28:54

Pete Burns?! I saw him on a 1980s programme the other night, what on earth has he done to his lips? Far too much of whatever he's had done to them. He was a bit of alright in the 80s but not now...

grin yes yes Gruntfottock

thecatsarecrazy Wed 29-Jul-15 11:35:22

Haha Pete burns so true!

Toooldtobearsed Wed 29-Jul-15 11:36:34

Nope. He has a smirky face that gets my hand twitching.

He is all yours!

squoosh Wed 29-Jul-15 11:45:08

Yes. Always smirking in a 'I brought physics to the masses don't you know' ^kind of way or 'The Radio Times said I'm the thinking woman's Johnny Depp'^.

Smuggy McSmuggerson.

KingJoffreyLikesJaffaCakes Wed 29-Jul-15 11:50:02

Nah. Leonard and Sheldon brought physics to the masses...
