Moffat Goes With Amazing Fan-Made Opening for Doctor Who Season 8

"We're f*cking time travelled, yes?"

Jill already saw the Doctor Who season premiere (grrrrrr), but the rest of us will have to wait until next Saturday, the 23rd. When we see it, we’ll also get our eyeballs on the new opening credits sequence, which, surprise! Was designed by a fan. A fan who also happens to be a professional graphic designer, but still.

Billy Hanshaw mocked up the above opening credits sequence after Peter Capaldi’s casting was announced, and according to the A.V. Club Steven Moffat liked it so much he “ask[ed] the BBC’s graphics department to make an official version.” Said Moffat: “It was the only new title idea I’d seen since 1963. We got in touch with him, and said, okay, we’re going to do that one.”

There are going to be some differences between the fan-made version and what eventually airs, of course—gotta get a different pic of Twelve’s mug in there—but still, I assume the heart(s) of Hanshaw’s version will be kept intact.
