    I'm thinking, given the timelines, that they'll be shooting in March/April for an autumn air date

    Application form states "programme, filming will take place in March 2016 in Glasgow", but not prospective air dates.

    Hope this hasn't been said already! But the old series are being repeated on challenge (on freeview) at 6-7pm every weekday. Lots of fun and very pleasant to unwind to after work!

    At least O'Briain has a background in maths and physics. According to Wikipedia, Scanlon has a background in fashion journalism and being a stylist. The world of technology and engineering is definitely a sausagefest but would it be so hard to find someone that knows even a little bit about the area or has some sort of interest in it? Such women do exist.
