New ‘Doctor Who’ Title Sequence Based on Fan-Made Video


Bosses behind Doctor Who have based the British sci-fi show’s new title sequence on graphics put together by a fan.

Graphics expert Billy Hanshaw from Leeds, England made the sequence as a training exercise for his job and uploaded the clip on video sharing website YouTube.

The piece caught the attention of the TV show’s boss Steven Moffat, who decided to use Hanshaw’s work to create the new official version.

Moffat says, “Hanshaw created this title sequence, put it up on YouTube. I happened to cross it, and 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’.”

The sequence will air when the new series, starring Peter Capaldi, who recently received a warm welcome from New York fans, as the latest incarnation of the Time Lord, begins on August 23.
