Re: It's not just a new control room...

If that's true, fantastic! However, I am very curious to see how new fans (ranging all the way back to '05) will react. They've never seen such a thing and they might freak out.

You know, I was also hoping for Super Friends style star swipes, like there were in the credit sequences starting with Tom Baker's last year and throughout Peter Davison's run and Colin Baker's run. I always thought that was cool.

I liked the TARDIS/DW part of the logo, I'll be sorry to see that go, but the return of "the face" will be cool.

Is it just me or does anyone else find it strange that posters are using spoiler code for theme music/titles?

Cripes, it's like all the crappy details from old Who are coming back. The ridiculous face in the credits, the boring and sterile control room.

What the hell, Moffat?

I like it, I grew up watching Classic Who on PBS. So for me it's like returning to Friday night and waiting for Peter Davision or Tom Baker to show up. Probably cause of the 50th they're rolling everything back.

You know what, there's not a real nice way to put this, so I'll just say it: We've had 7 years of your way. It's been fun; it's been nice; many of us, including myself have been okay with it - but now, it's "our" time - those of us who like a more clinical control room; those of us who kinda miss the face in the credits. You've had your time; and we stepped aside; now step aside and let us have our time, please.

No face in the TV movie titles! OR the first three and a half seasons...

The problem is "crappy details" is a very subjective concept. Some people like them quite a lot. I like the old control room, for example. I don't see why it has to be so cluttered like the modern one.

For the face, I think it's better if subtle. For example, I would prefer a face outline in the vortex rather than just a photo of the face. I also (if it wasn't apparent) prefer the vortex over space. Then again, I don't think they've ever gotten better than the very original credits and there is no face or vortex or space there.

This isn't the first time such a thing has been done. I remember when Enterprise did the special opening credits for its MU two-parter, the description of it was spoiler coded.

What I thought was ridiculous was several years ago when the title to the BSG episode He That Believeth in Me was announced, a shit storm started in the BSG forum with someone upset because "that should be spoiler coded!"

This is the anniversary year, and the face in the credits was an integral part of classic Who. It was featured in everyone's credits except for Hartnell and McGann.

You may not like it, but everyone else seems to. In fact, I remember an online petition to bring the face back after Smith was cast.

As for the console room, I've never thought too highly of the one we've had since season 5 anyway, so I say good riddance.
