Cox on Ross

By Phil Plait | April 2, 2010 12:00 pm

My friend and fellow science promoter Brian Cox will be on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross tonight on BBC America (it already aired last week in the UK). Brian is funny and smart, as is Wossy (as Ross is called), so this should be a great time. And speaking of Matt Smith and Doctor Who, Mr. Smith will be on Wossy’s show as well.

Speaking of speaking of Doctor Who, oh how I wish this were true.

Tip o’ the sonic screwdriver to Fizzygoo for the Obama link.

    There’s already a clip up on YouTube (courtesy of the official BBC channel, I might add).

    It ain’t over ’til it’s over.

    Simon still faces the possibility of further legal hassles if the BCA appeals to their Supreme Court.


    I’ll bet our Pres watches the Dr. whenever he has the time.

    Gotta unwind from running the Free World somehow.

    Anyone have any idea how to watch this?

  6. @6, Gary A.

    I understand that, but judging from his attorney calling it a “resounding victory,” the smile on Simon’s face and the headline on JREF I would say there is something here to celebrate.

    Any way to see that on the internet for free and legal in the US?

    It WAS a resounding victory that may well result in new law, which is admirable but I expect that scares the frak out of the BCA (and others) so, fight on Simon. I hope you win BIG time and WHEN you do, we’ll all dance upon their grave.

    If folk in different geographic areas are constrained from seeing particular sites due to their urls, isn’t that equivalent to de facto censorship? I wonder how that differs from Chinas Great Wall?

    am i the only one who wanted to read that as “ross on cox?”

    After wtching last Friday nights show, I was struck on how little Ross new about actual science. Brian Cox had to correct him on a number of occasions and was quite surprised at Ross’s comments. I reckon Ross is one of those who would be easily persuaded by either Russell Humphreys or John Hartnett

    Still, Matt Smith was good.

    Anyone here seen Sunshine? Cox lays down an epic commentary track.
