Neil deGrasse Tyson on Time: Doctor Who, Star Trek or Ray Bradbury?

Who had the best handle on the concept of time: Ray Bradbury, STAR TREK or DOCTOR WHO?

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson answers a question whether time is more like Ray Bradbury's linear depiction of time in the short story "A Sound of Thunder" (and, yeah, it was made into a not-so-good movie that I have not seen), the multiple universe in 2009's "Star Trek" or the way Doctor Who describes it in the episode "Blink": "a big ball of wibbly, wobbly, timey-wimey...stuff." The host is Colin Jost.
