There are no questions physics cannot tackle. That is Stephen Hawking’s bold message as he takes on the greatest riddle of all: what is the meaning of life? “You might think this is a philosophical question,” he says. “But I think philosophy is dead.”

Hawking’s leaping intellect and Benedict Cumberbatch’s silky narration guide us through everything from the thought games of Descartes to the latest in quantum physics, to explain our place in the universe.
