Time Grows Closer


We're a week away from the premiere of series 8 of Doctor Who, and the BBC have finally gotten around to releasing the episode titles for this year (included below). It includes seven scripts written (or, for a first) co-written by showrunner Steven Moffat, and only one script by his space/time buddy, Mark Gatiss. It also includes the return of cliffhangers, as the final two episodes are paired, as well as possibly epsiodes 5 and 6 (though that is only speculation.

Moffat also revealed that, on top of the Doctor getting a new face, and the TARDIS getting an internal refit, there will be a new opening credits sequence. I'll have more thoughts on that in my first review, if it proves to be true. The new sequence plays like a bit of fanfic: pro CG artist Billy Hanshaw made it himself for fun and put it on the internet, where a fan showed it to Steven Moffat, who loved it, hired Hanshaw and put it on the front end of the new series. Hanshaw's original is above, and we'll have to wait to see how close the official version gets. I like this version, in the very least.
