Doctor Who fans looking forward to Matt Smith’s debut in Doctor Who have been treated to a glimpse of the future with the unveiling of the shows new logo.
The casting of Smith, who takes over from current Doctor David Tennant early next year, was announced in a special BBC One edition of Doctor Who Confidential in January. He’ll be accompanied by Karen Gillan as companion Amy Pond.
Speaking as his casting as announced, Smith said he felt “proud and honoured to have been given this opportunity to join a team of people that has worked so tirelessly to make the show so thrilling.”
Accompanying the logo at bbc.co.uk/doctorwho is an animated insignia of the show’s initials, which will be used as branding for the new series in conjunction with the logo.
Steven Moffat, the new Lead Writer and Executive Producer, said: “A new logo. The 11th logo for the 11th Doctor – those grand old words, Doctor Who, suddenly looking newer than ever.
“And, look at that, something really new – an insignia! DW in TARDIS form! Simple and beautiful, and most important of all, a completely irresistible doodle.”
