Doctor Who, the cult British science fiction television series that is now in approaching its 47th year, has a new logo.
It isn’t the first time it has had a new logo but is the first time it has been changed in any meaningful way since its re-launch by Russell T. Davies in 2005.
It makes sense for the team to give the show a new brand as it is about to get a new Doctor, companion and lead writer – all at the same time.
However, there is another episode under the old logo, old doctor and old writer to go at Christmas, The Waters of Mars, before the new series kicks off in 2010.
The new logo even has an animated insignia that is basically DW in the shape of a Tardis – lovely.
It sits somewhere between the first logo of the early 1960s and the one used in the television movie in the mid-90s.
