A new teaser for Brian Cox's one-off lecture on Doctor Who involves a bit of timey-wimey with a dash of the impossible - What happens when Britain's favourite scientist goes up against Britain's favourite Time Lord?

Here's the full description for The Science of Doctor Who courtesy of the BBC:

For one night only, Professor Brian Cox takes an audience of celebrity guests, including Charles Dance and Rufus Hound, and members of the public on a journey into the wonderful universe of the Doctor, from the lecture hall of the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Drawing on the latest theories as well as 200 years of scientific discoveries and the genius of Einstein, Brian tries to answer the classic questions raised by the Doctor - can you really travel in time? Does extra-terrestrial life exist in our galaxy? And how do you build something as fantastical as the TARDIS?

Brian Cox, The Doctor and Tywin Lannister? Umm, yes please. Between this and his brief stint in The Power of Three, Brian's quickly becoming a slice of Doctor Who Canon.

The Science of Doctor Who airs next Thursday, November 14th, on BBC Two.
