11 TV Scientists We Love!


The Doctor, (Matt Smith) Doctor Who

Dialogue Sample: “I am being extremely clever up here and there's no one to stand around looking impressed!”

Made the List Because: No one has mastered gravity (or time and space) with such gravitas. A list like this without Smith is like a soup with no broth. Doctor Who is arguably the preeminent science-based show on TV right now, and watching him school peeps in random elements of science is one of TV’s greatest pleasures. The ever-clever doctor shrugs genius off as a hobby, but major, real-life scientists like Michio Kaku have lauded the show’s representation of time travel, among other things. Watching the Doctor is always a good timey wimey!
