Doctor Who titles are getting darker

Weird coincidence or hidden clue? What does it all mean?

And the great thing about this is that you could post this in every single thread and we could close the BBS.

It's a pity they didn't put any actual effort into the changes, because on a purely technical level the credits now look like something a fan knocked up on their PC rather than a professional piece of work that (some of us) have paid for.

I reckon that voice that said "Silence Will Fall" will shout the answer out of one of those cracks in the the finale of series 14b.

Yeah, I find the visuals of the title sequence are murky and a bit fuzzy now, lacking in the crispness they had the past two seasons, almost as if they're in standard def.

That's rather extreme all at once, even with a full compliment of Doctors returning.

Though, I suppose it would be pretty neat, to see each of them, in their own episode, that ends with a connection with the 11th Doctor Arc for the Season. Maybe, every other episode is 11, and every other episode is a prior Doctor. One featuring the Ice Warriors, another maybe The Master, The Rani or Similar Time Lord Menace/Adversary, etc, and all of the previous Doctor Episodes, plus all of the 11 episodes tied up into a White/Black Guardian Bow (...Or something )

Re: Doctor Who titles are getting darker

Because I haven't been watching the series consistently, can someone tell me why the time vortex now looks like a thunderstorm instead of the RTD purple vortex thingy?

Because the Moff thinks his stories are more electrifying?

I don't think there's any actual explanation though maybe others know better?

Because the time vortex regenerates, too. Duh.

They don't explain stylistic changes to the title sequence in the show, for some reason.

I'm talking about within the show; hasn't the vortex changed to match the title sequence?

Re: Doctor Who titles are getting darker

Have we seen inside the vortex during Moffat era? I can't remember. Does "The Doctors Wife" count?
