Doctor Who Title Sequence to Change In Every Series 7 Episode

We heard last night that Doctor Who will be getting a new title sequence for Series 7, but it was revealed that it will change in every episode throughout the Series.

Bleedingcool.com describe it as: "Based on the same font, it’s black with silver studs, looking all Dalek-y. Something special for the season opener?
Not a bit of it. Bleeding Cool have been told from BBC sources that the title will change with every episode to reflect the content. So Dinosaurs On A Spaceship, for example, will see the logo covered in scales…"

Radio Times say: "Look out, too, for a tweak to the title sequence – it’s the same “colonoscopy-in-space” effect but with a bluey-green tinge and a redesigned logo. The Moff tells me that there’ll be a special logo and title fonts to match all five episodes."

A few minor changes include a different credit font which fades in differently and a movement of the DW Tardis logo.

Have you not been watching the show? That's been the title sequence for like two seasons now. You haven't even seen the new one.

The title sequence in the picture has been here since 2010...

Yeah, it's a little muddy on my speakers at home, and we have nice speakers here. I don't really mind the song so much as it lost some of the dynamism.

Yeah...umm....Jason is correct. The picture above is from the 2010 season. S6 incorporated the BBC logo in the lower right hand corner of the logo. "Two seasons now" means SINCE 2010!

My biggest complaint is that Gold has essentially drowned out the original bass line with a percussion in the opening seconds. The original theme was composed of two parts: the baseline and the main melody. What's wrong with sticking with that? Not only that, Gold actually doesn't have the notes correct in the main melody. Red Dwarf X did it.

Anon, Didcot UK: I've always prefered the 1970s version of the Doctor Who theme and title sequences. They had the right haunting edge to them.
