Broadcast details for BBC Two's anniversary programme The Science of Doctor Who have been announced.

Professor Brian Cox will present the one-hour programme on Thursday 14th November at 9pm.

Brian takes an audience, with the help of celebrity guests, on a journey into the wonderful universe of the Doctor, in a specially-recorded programme from the lecture theatre of the Royal Institution of Great Britain.

He reveals the science behind the spectacle and explains the physics that allows Doctor Who to travel through space and time. Fun, but filled with real science, it's a special night for Who fans as well as anyone with a thirst for understanding.

Brian is in the unique position of knowing the Doctor's universe inside out as well as the reality behind the drama. When the TARDIS travels through time and space, he understands the physics involved. And when it comes to life on other planets, Brian knows the real science that could prove extra-terrestrial life might just really exist in our galaxy.
Cox is no stranger to Doctor Who, having had a cameo role in The Power of Three last year, as well as taking part in Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor in August.

The Science of Doctor Who is among a host of programmes announced by the BBC to mark Doctor Who's 50th anniversary.
