Doctor Who Getting New Version Of Theme Tune And Title Sequence

The BBC have officially announced that Doctor Who will have a newly reworked theme tune and opening title sequence as of next week’s Christmas Special, The Snowmen.

The titles are designed to be “dramatic and striking” and will contain “a couple of unexpected touches.” As for the theme, it will now be “more thrilling and powerful” as well as “slightly scary” and “stirring.”

And there was me thinking this show worked best when it was being playful and comical.

So, we’re officially still in the middle of a single 2012-2013 series. Ignore the massive break in screening, the change of companion, new theme tune and new titles – it’s all one series. Nope, no two years of cut-length series here. The BBC say so. For some reason.

We look forward to The Snowmen with bated, frosty breath, new opening sequence or not.
