    The title sequence took quite a lot of editing way back in the day they did not even have CGI, you would never think this was camera created, 39 years still look very impressive.

    I love the theme. Keep up the good work bbc
    (Edit) I know this is the 80s btw

  • Mayo's Animated Sketchbook

    I like them all! But my favourite version of the Doctor Who theme tune is the early 1980's version. Probably has something to do with my earliest memories of Doctor Who being 'The Keeper of Traken' from 1981.

    Although I adore this version of the title sequence, I can't help but feel a bit sad. Because, (please anyone correct me if I'm wrong) I think that Tom Baker left because of the drastic changes made to the show. John Nathan Turner (producer) apparently tried to 'modernise' the show by changing a lot of aspects.
    He changed the style of writing, the incidental music for the episodes, the costumes for the Doctor and everyone else (the less we speak of Adric's costume the better!), and of course he changed the title sequence.
    Maybe that's why this title sequence feels dated, and the earlier 1975 one doesn't nearly as much.
    I still love this theme!
    It was the first classic who titles I watched!
