‘Doctor Who’s New Title Sequence Is Out Of This World

Published

One of the most recognizable things about a T.V. show is its title sequence. They’re always a notification that your favorite program is about to start. One of T.V.s most beloved shows just got weird with their title sequence.

One Wild Ride

On the new season of Doctor Who, we’re introduced to a new Doctor played by Jodie Whittaker. With someone new taking the role, the producers needed a brand new intro.

This time around, they decided to warp our minds with something psychedelic. You couldn’t have a Doctor Who opening without the iconic theme song. This specific intro features a reworked version of the theme done by Segun Akinola.

An Achieved Dream

The new intro was done by devoted Whovian John Smith. Back in 2010, he created his own version of the Doctor Who title sequence and placed it on YouTube. At the young age of 16, his creation got some praise from fellow fans of the hit BBC show. It peaked his interest into the world of VFX so much that he took it as a career. Eight years later, he finds himself doing the real thing.

“Everyone couldn’t have been more wonderful and encouraging throughout the entire process – I don’t think I’ve ever worked with such a thoroughly lovely group of people,” he stated on Facebook.

The Doctor Is Calling

When it comes to the title sequence, many people refer to earlier Doctor Who seasons as a possible influence. The intros for Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee’s tenures as the Doctor also deliver on the trippiness. As expected, the trippy vibes stem from those two series filming in the ’70s.

While they held off on the sequence on Whittaker’s first episode, seeing it introduce the show now is simply a joy. Whittaker has gained a plethora of praise from her performance on the show as well.

What Caused the Rift Between Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashians

Caitlyn Jenner changed the world twice. Once in 1976 when she took home a gold medal and set records in the Montreal Olympics as Bruce Jenner, and the second time in 2015 when she came out to the world as a transgender woman. Both as Bruce and as Caitlyn, she has been heavily tied to the Kardashian family pop-culture powerhouse through her 24-year marriage to family matriarch Kris. Since introducing herself to the world as Caitlyn, though, Jenner has had a fallout with the Kardashian family – and drama ensued. Here’s how it all went down, and where they are today.
