DOCTOR Who fanatic Giovanni Antonelli can rattle off the names of all 240 stories from the cult show in 15 breath-taking minutes.

The 44-year-old Reddish Vale Technology College science teacher admits he is a super nerd'.

This is the result of 40 years of love for the programme, he said.

It introduced me to science and from that, I went into teaching. Generally, when I use it in lessons, there's two responses some groan and say not this again,' but others seem genuinely enthusiastic.

He performed the trick to raise 100 for Children in Need and then repeated the feat for special video that can be found on our website.

His knowledge ranges from 1963's An Unearthly Child to last month's 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. He said: Most of it has been rattling around in my head for years I've just never had a reason to learn them all in order. The dad-of-two added: I tell the kids to learn through repetition this is a perfect example of how that can work.

Student, Lucy Welford, 15, said: It's amazing that he has all that information in his head as well as everything he has to teach us. I think he's something from Doctor Who himself.
