    Looks good. I hated the RTD logo, and loved the various iterations of the Moffat logo. But if they're refreshing everything else, it makes sense that they'd refresh this too.

    The show is lagging. Whittaker's casting is a gamble. If they want to make it seem new and attractive to audiences again, they've got to go "all in" and spruce it up from top to bottom.

    I really like the new logo! I liked the previous ones as well, though. It’s possible I’m just easily impressed.

    Happy for the change in any case.

    Oh now i like that a lot, and is that a little muffled snippet of how the theme tune will sound, very interesting.

    I totally love the new logo. Simple, classy, yet still has a touch of sci-fi there.

    Hmmm. Don't know. I guess it'll grow on me.

    It's OK looking, but it's a logo we'll see for something like 30 seconds.

    Well, all new-series merchandise, at least. Their claim that the Series 5-10 logo was on all merchandise is flatly not true - classic Doctor material is still using the Pertwee logo as it has since 1996 - so I wouldn't assume yet that anything classic is getting rebranded.

    Heck, Titan Comics has been using the Pertwee logo on all of their Doctor Who comics since the beginning. Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve, all with the familiar Pertwee/McGann logo.

    IDW, on the other hand, used the taxicab logo for the tenth Doctor comics and the Moffat-era logo for the eleventh Doctor comics.

    Yeah, that's pretty meaningless. They're not even in the same photo.

    They seem to be going to a larger variety of locations in this series compared to others.

    I don't know, seems roughly on par with previous seasons to me, so far.

    Not to defend a red top, but, no that is a puffa coat. Same as a puffa jacket but longer. It’s the little cells of padding. No idea what they call them outside the M25 mind you, but that’s a puffa, as beloved by barrow boys, market stall holders, working class people and even chavs that don’t want their cobblers frozen (or in the absence of cobblers, Bristol’s and jacks,) frozen off when it gets a bit parky. They are effective when it’s cold enough for brass monkeys. I believe they are so named as far away even as Essex.

    Mate, I was outraged about the use of one silly word over a different silly word. In other words, a joke.

    Alan Cumming will guest star in an episode.

    Cumming himself confirmed the casting on the latest episode of Will Young and Christopher Sweeney’s LGBTQ podcast Homo Sapiens, as well as the fact that he’ll be playing King James I (who, confusingly, was also King James VI, of the then-separate Scottish throne)—the first monarch to take England’s throne after the end of the Tudor line with the death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603. Skip ahead to around 15:55 if you want to hear for yourself, but here’s Cummings’ own description of his role:

    "I’m about to go and do an episode of Doctor Who, I’m so excited. I’m a nice baddie, I’m James I, so I’m kind of like a dandy, foppy sort of coward who kind of comes alright in the end. And they said he might come back."​
