69 Magazine - July 14, 2009 - Julia Sherwood

". . . the film is narrated by David Tennant.  A tiny part of me (the part that's a bit dreamy and fanciful) thought he might show up and narrated it live. . . 

He didn't show but his beautiful lilting Scottish tones did.  Major kudos to the filmakers for this. Tennant is a natural narrator.  His voice lures you in, complicated theories and jargon are suddenly easy to grasp." 

The List - July 9, 2009 - Kelly Apter

"But Tennant’s dulcet tones somehow break down the complexity of galaxies and gadgets, making this fascinating but complicated subject infinitely more approachable."

The Leicester Mercury - July 26, 2010 - Cat Turnell

"Today, like any other day, the audience has been treated to an intensive dose of science wrapped in computer-generated wizardry and delivered in the gentle Caledonian of former Dr Who David Tennant."
