Re: Original concept Doctor Who Peter Capaldi intro

I like the steampunk vibe it has to it, but it's too full on if you know what I mean. Plus the theme is just a slightly remixed version of the 2005 one.

Re: Original concept Doctor Who Peter Capaldi intro

Is there a youtube of Sylvester playing the theme with his spoons?

I doubt this is official. The gears don't really work for me either.
Of course it's not official? That's made clear in the first post?

^Well, "original concept" does imply that it was the first-draft idea of the producers. I'm still not clear on whether it's fan-created or not.

Eh, Original Concept, put up by a random Youtube user, rather than an official entity, no official announcement or anything official about it, the slam of "probably better than what we'll actually get", plus the complete departure from what was last used, it seems crystal clear to me that it's fan made, but, maybe I'm just being overly-cynical

I like it. And I always liked RTD's theme version better than SM's (especially the latest ones).

Yes, she's begun going by that name recently. That's how she's officially billed in all the press releases for the new season.

Re: Original concept Doctor Who Peter Capaldi intro

Technically it's very good, and I like the bit where Capaldi shows up on the watch, but overall it doesn't do much for me. I hate the whole clock theme, it annoyed me in the TVM and annoys me here. It needs to be the vortex.

Re: Original concept Doctor Who Peter Capaldi intro

I rather liked it, though I would prefer seeing more of a melding of the clock gears with the time vortex. The mashup of Moffat and Davies era themes was quite enjoyable. Well done, especially for a fan creation.

It#s not perfect but I like that a lot better, especially the Capaldi bit!

Re: Original concept Doctor Who Peter Capaldi intro

I like the concept, but let's replace the gears/clock motif with a bunch of gaudy question marks. Nothing says mysterious like a question mark?

Yeah I posted that earlier in the thread. He's very talented but he has a penchant for making things too busy. If he did away with the asteroid belt and toned down the explosions it would be more to my taste. But he's still the best animator for these opening themes that I've seen so far. I hope his work gets noticed by someone that matters.

I don't know about youtube but his spoons were included in a theme arrangement released on CD in 1994 or so.
