    Sad to say I am not a fan of the new logo at all. I’m not a fan of the attempting 3D look unless it is a drawing of something with structure. I just hope the show stay good, have concerns about a young doctor and companion.

    Yeah…. I’m with Rob.

    True, the logo has been updated many times before, but this one just seems pretty crap.

    Strike ‘pretty’ actually.

    As a new fan of Doctor Who, I’m okay with it.

    I’m actually digging the logo as an modernization attempt. I too just hope that the show can retain everything that’s great about it with the new Doctor. I just hope we don’t have another Season 3 event, where most of it is to mourn the absence of a major character, like Rose. I’m just wondering if and/or when they’ll release Season 4 for streaming.

    it’s not bad, but i couldn’t care less, just bring back the show already.

    there was supposed to be 4 specials this year, we got one.

    and neil gaiman was supposed to write a doctor who episode, which is it?

      Um… I’ve seen two specials, with a third coming around the holidays, and a fourth after new year, as I understand it…

    I didn’t like it when it was stationary, but was instantly sold when it animated in and out.

    We fans should be used to change.

    I can’t wait, the new creative lead and executive producer wrote the best of the Who episodes so far (including Blink which is perhaps the best of them all) and is a great writer as a Brit who has watched quite a bit of his work in various forms (he wrote Coupling which I believe was reasonably well recieved in the States). I just hope that it’d not have the almost tragic dumbing down that sometimes blighted the new improved Doctor Who so far because it’s a family show and seemingly younger children don’t need the respect of a coherent plot or consistently solid characterisation. I know it might make me sound a bit like an ogre and what not but Babylon 5 start airing in the UK before I was 10 and I watched it an I watched Space Above and Beyond when I was 11-12. Stargate the next generation is family friendly viewing and rarely gets as lazy as Who sometimes gets I won’t ever accept poor storytelling via any medium just because children are in the audience.

    But first things first the specials for Tennant’s and RTD’s swan song and John Simm (the master) is back and has been saying it’s quite the finale.
