New Doctor Who logo

The new logo for the new era of Doctor Who has just been revealed and I have to say I kinda like it. I was never too keen on the most recent logo, even though it certainly improved when that daft Tardis "ident" was quietly dropped...
This newest version of the logo ( how many times can I type "logo" in one post? ) is simple and elegant and the colour scheme is strangely similar to the Eccleston / Tennant "taxi cab" iteration.
The 2018 take on the logo ( I really couldn't avoid typing that word again ) appropriately suggests time or space flight with that streak running through the letters, with the final "O" also looking like a side-on view of a ringed planet to me. Yeah, I really do like the whole style of this.
The new show still seems a long way off but maybe this snippet of information is the start of some long-awaited info on Series 11. The new production team are understandably keen to concentrate on making the show and not giving too much away too soon... but, being the sad Whovian that I am, I'll take what I can get. I suppose it could always be worse...

I do have to say that it's my favourite logo of the modern era. Have you seen the trailer for it? We now live in an era where we get trailers for logos. It's a strange and wonderful madness.

As for the upcoming season, they've been filming very close to where I live. There've been a couple of occasions so far when I've had a chance to pop down and nosey at them but have been put off by the weather. If they ever have the sense to film when the weather's nice, I'm determined to get down there and get some pictures.

I've seen some You Tube footage of the Who team on the mean streets of Sheffield - makes a change from Cardiff! It would be pretty cool if you could get the chance to see some filming take place. Ten years ago (!) the David Tennant-era Who crew filmed The Next Doctor in my own fair city of Gloucester. We went down to watch one night but didn't get a sniff of a Time Lord or Cyberman - the highlight of the evening was seeing one of the special effects bods stepping out of a portaloo...

Hasn't she got incredibly big feet? Yeah, it's a nice logo - shame about the sex change. (Take a look at my response to your last comment on my blog, Cer, and let me know.)

Yeah, the gap between her culottes and her boots gives her legs a kind of cartoonish silhouette. On his Twitter page, Doctor Who artist Lee Sullivan took advantage of this opportunity and give her a duck bill, changing the logo to "Ductor Who" :-)
