Doctor-Who-Opening-2013-thumb

This year is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who and the show has been subtly celebrating it all year.

The episodes have been good, but my favorite part by far as been the new and improved opening.

I find this aesthetically pleasing as a fan of the show and as a motion graphic artists.

These new textures are great mixing space with something that looks like blood.

Of course the money shot is adding the face of the actor back to the opening credits.

This makes me squee every time I see it. It’s such a perfect mix of old and new styles of the show and I hope they keep carrying it forward from now on.

On a related note, when I was looking for the opening to add to this blog I came across this fan made version that is honestly a little bit better.

Man, that’s awesome, I hope he finds success!
