Re: The Snowmen Grading and Discussion Thread

Ha! I do feel like they keep covering up the classic theme each time they tweak it. Season 1 really was about as close to the more stripped down Original theme as they got... remember i think it was McCoy's that almost felt like the musicians thought We need to make the opening sequence sound and look more like TNG

That would have been an interesting trick, considering Time and the Rani Part 1 aired three weeks before Encounter at Farpoint did.

Well... lol hey we ARE talking about a Time Lord after all

I guess it WAS all part of that "It's the 80s! It's all about synthesizers and swooshy graphics and like neon and fanfare!"

The McCoy era is my favourite but that title sequence always looked like something out of a game show to me.

EXACTLY! I was trying to figure out what it reminded me of - exactly like a period game show.

I think it's pretty awesome. And it has the second part of the theme that I really like.

I love the theme too but the titles have dated somewhat in a way that the previous title sequences haven't.

Well, as much as I love classic Who, it looks pretty dated in its entirety today, to be honest.

I'd say 2006 Tennant Who has dated far worse than 1963 Hartnell Who.

I enjoyed The Snowmen a lot. Clara is super hot and I loved her spunk and adventurous spirit.

This thread needs more Jenna!
