Has to be Emma Kenny. Appears regularly on several channels in documentaries mainly about crime. Allegedly a criminal psychologist, she never says anything other than stating the obvious or a load of pretentious babble.
Beware of self-confessed expert commentators! Sorry Dan Cruickshank, but I often don't believe you either.
"Now listen you guys, I don't wish to alarm you but there's some pretty weird things going on out here..."
I have to admit this was rather a pointless thread, but I was watching a documentary and this so called psychologist turned up yet again and said something like "When someone you've known for 20 years cheats you out of a large sum of money that's going to be very hurtful."
You don't say.

I'm probably the only one who had to Google those names in order to have any idea what you were talking about. :-)Ian Dickerson wrote:Alexander Armstrong or Richard Osman surely?
Sorry. Someone was going to say it, so I thought it better be me...!

Please do. I find him unwatchable. Is he really an "expert"? He comes across as someone who has just smoked a joint and is looking through a kaleidescope. And as for his image as "eye candy" with a swooning female audience, I can only imagine that this is some kind of tabloid construct. Sorry Doc Cox, but I want my experts to look and sound like David Attenborough or Alec Clifton-Taylor, but then I'm an old fart myself.fatcat wrote:Dare I mention the sacred cow Dr Brian Cox?

I don't like Cox's presentation style, but as Duncan says his academic qualifications are excellent. He's very much an active researcher in the Particle Physics group at Manchester University (http://www.manchester.ac.uk/research/br ... blications) and he's recently been made a Fellow of the Royal Society.
