Brian Cox leaves me gob smacked. He is blisteringly smart but wears it with an easy rock-star charm. (Before he was a top-flight Physics Professor he was literally a pop star with chart topping hits.) His Einstein for beginners book is fabulous and even comprehensible (at least I think I get it). His (less demanding) BBC series Wonders of the Solar System is one of the best bits of popular science I have seen.
If you have never seen Brian Cox you will need a little guide - otherwise jump to the second video - a fabulous spoof.
And now the spoof (complete with a language warning reflecting that Brian is from the English North and they can cuss like Australians):
