We’ve set up a new section under ‘TV Show Discussion’ for you all to comment on the new Science of attraction series and individual episodes.
Head over to our Science of Attraction Page to leave your comments.
So far all we can say is:
A brand new 90 minute special from the incomparable psychological illusionist Derren Brown in which the star turns his attention to the controversial world of faith-healing.
He will lay bare the tricks and techniques employed by the American Bible beltsâ€™, self-proclaimed, faith-healers who boast the ability to perform wonders.
In one of the most audacious stunts he has ever attempted, Derren finds a member of the public who he will train to be a faith healer, before going out to the American bible belt and seeing if he can manage to put on a genuine faith healing show and get away with it.
As soon as we have a air date confirmed we will let you all know.
A rather lovely boxset of Derren at his very best.
This contains three of our man’s must-see live theatre shows, including:
An Evening of Wonders
The psychological illusionist takes us on a journey through mind control and subliminal suggestion and recreates the jaw-dropping ‘Oracle Act’ from the turn of the 20th century. The show features audience participation, shocking stunts and mind games, as Derren shows why you have to see him live.
Something Wicked This Way Comes
This DVD features the Olivier Award-winning stage show. Derren stops his pulse, walks on glass, and armed only with a few newspapers drives the show to a tour-de-force finale of prediction, influence and showmanship that will leave you breathless.
A special tone leaves the audience hypnotised and a woman finds herself sleep-walking through the rows. Is a supernatural force summoned within the Spirit Cabinet or is the medium somehow doing Brown’s bidding? Derren is again at his finest in this stunning theatrical event that brought him more rave reviews up and down the country and “sees him climb to artistic heights rarely, if ever, achieved by any other legends of the magical arts” (Time Out).

The Science of Attraction is the sequel to the BAFTA nominated Science of Scams web series. http://www.scienceofscams.com
Introduced by Derren Brown and presented by Kat Akingbade and Charlie McDonnell the website acts as the hub for a number of entertaining and informative experiments about the psychology, biology and unwitting judgements that explain why we are attracted to each other.
Poets have swooned over it since the invention of the written word; singers started crooning about it even before that time. It is a central theme in our daily lives, from the books we read to the people who make our hearts beat a little faster. Itâ€™s what â€œmakes the world go â€™round.â€ For the most part, attraction remains an unsolved mystery. No definitive method exists to calculate or predict to whom we will be attracted. The media constantly tries to tell us how we should look, what is attractive, what products we should buy and what clothes we should wear to be more attractive, there are books on chat up techniques and rules about dating and now science is tackling the subject. Recent experiments involving everything from sweaty T-shirts to facial symmetry have started to piece together some of the clues to this enormously complex phenomenon and in this series weâ€™ll explore the scams and the science behind attraction.
Each video contains experiments that test theories about the science of attraction. Lively, entertaining and insightful these experiments are based on the most recent research that has been carried out on the science of attraction. Do psychological strategies espoused by self-help gurus and dating experts really work? Is it really possible to use body language, NLP and other psychological tricks to make yourself appear more attractive? All of these questions and more are investigated at www.scienceofattraction.co.uk.
