Harry Wilcox is a physics graduate studying a PhD* at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth and a massive fan of the Channel 4 show.
*PhD = Doctor of Philosophy sometimes called a doctorate. It’s the highest level of degree you can achieve and allows you to put Dr in front of your name.
Do you watch The Big Bang Theory?
I have probably seen every episode several times. I went through a phase of watching an hour a day
Tell us about the show…
It’s got a science theme, especially physics and the characters talk and joke about scientific theories. The main male characters all work at a university. Sheldon and Leonard are physicists and Howard is an engineer, so he builds things. Sheldon often makes fun of Howard for not having a PhD. Raj is an astrophysicist and so are lots of people who work with me at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation.
