Is he really a heartthrob?

All I can see is a goofy, albeit inoffensive bloke that's enthusiastic about his subject. Or is that the point and I'm missing it?

I can see the appeal ..young,  nice, looking soft voice VERY clever ( clue in the professor bit )

He's no stunner, but that's not the appeal 

Plus he can play the piano *swoon*

Heartthrob?  Dunno, seems like a nice enough bloke.  I'd have a beer with him.  He's currently trying to teach me what quantum physics is all about, and being only partially successful if I'm honest.  Might try and finish off the book this weekend.

And I CNBA dredging up the earworm thread but thanks - that D:Ream track looks like it's gonna be hanging around this afternoon!

I went to see Uncaged Monkeys in Manchester last year. It was geek heaven

Brian Cox on the piano and Tim Minchin on guitar singing a Christmas song - excellent!

I prefer the parody guy off of that impression show thingy...


on me, Michael...

I prefer Dan Snow - but perhaps that's because he's a historian

Its all about the character and personality.

he could turn me...

Apparently my aunt thinks he's "easy on the eye".

Personally, I much prefer Dr Alice Roberts.

He's the thinking woman's crumpet

16/11/2012 at 16:48

Not in my world .  Not even sure he's a nice bloke - didn't one of his roadies once gaffer tape him to a lighting rig for being a pain in the butt????  It was on tv - some comedy panel (am I lying or not type) show and he admitted to it!  Always amazes me how people can be one person on camera and another when it's turned off!

Now I could definitely have a drink with her!  I met her at a seminar/book signing and she really is quite charming.  I got the impression that all the geeky enthusiasm is very real.  Definitely my favourite "thinking man's crumpet", beats Vorderman hands down.

I don't remember him being an arse when he was in D:Ream.  Yes, I met all of the band as I worked in a venue they played at.  Hubby did the lighting for him that night, or at least helped to set it up.  I think they might have had their own lighting technician that did the actual show while Hubby did it for the warm up band.

And roadies think that anyone who makes them do work is a pain in the butt.

I'm not sure meeting them once would give you a full view of who they are!

And not all roadies are lazy!

Correct sleepy bear, but the most obnoxious ones tend to be like that all the time.

I never accused roadies of being lazy, but they don't like being told what to do.
