New Doctor Who Logo Revealed

By Mark
The BBC have today revealed the new Doctor Who logo which will used for the programme during and after its fifth series. As well as featuring text, the logo also contains an emblem of the Tardis which has been created using the programme's initials. You can view this new logo, which is similar to some of the show's older logos, above and view a teaser trailer for Doctor Who series five which features the logo here on this site below;

Doctor Who series five will see Matt Smith take on the role of the 11th Doctor and Karen Gillan play the role of his companion, Amy Pond. Steven Moffat will be the programme's new head writer for the series and filming is currently taking place in Cardiff. You can view a collection of Doctor Who's previous logos here. Doctor Who series five is scheduled for transmission next year and more details will be posted here on this site as soon as they become available. What do you think of this new logo for Steven Moffat's era of Doctor Who?

    Hmmmmmm.... not sure. I suppose any change is just a bit strange after growing so used to the old one. Not making any snap decisions though, and much more interested to see what early footage leaks.

    I like the Tardis logo. Good stuff!

    My beef is that apparently the fifth series is going to be called the "first series" again. It's labeled that way on all the clapboards for filming clips. Why would they do that? It's very confusing.

    I agree. It was sensible enough to call Christopher Ecclestone's series "Series One", as there was such a great gap between it and the previous incarnation of the Dr in the classic series. I don't think you can make such a distinction between the current and upcoming series' though. I don't see any reason for it, bar making a statement and creating artistic distance between the two incarnations (but then isn't that inherent in the classic series'? Aren't they always so very different in tone from one series to the next?)

Something to say?
