About time! BBC unveils new Doctor Who logo
Doctor Who has a new star (Jodie Whittaker), a new supporting cast (Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole, Bradley Walsh), and a new showrunner (former Broadchurch overlord Chris Chibnall). As of today, the long-running British time travel show also has a new logo.
To mark this new era for the series, the BBC just unveiled via Twitter a snazzy new design for the series’ title. The logo can be seen on a poster, featuring Whittaker’s Doctor in silhouette as well as the TARDIS, and in an introductory video. To quote a certain Doctor: “Aw, brilliant!”
BBC Worldwide commissioned creative agency Little Hawk to create the brand-new designs, working closely with Chibnall and executive producer Matt Strevens. The sound for the animated logo is created by Matthew Herbert. All official Doctor Who merchandise featuring the new logo will be available at selected retailers from starting today.
You can check out that new Doctor Who poster above and the video below.
The first season of Doctor Who to star Whittaker as the Time Lord will premiere on BBC America in the Fall.
