For those of us who are fans, yesterday the BBC made our day with the announcement of a few Doctor Who related news items. First up, and most important, is the new logo. This will be the eleventh that the show has enjoyed and coincides with the forthcoming eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith. Smith is currently filming the fifth series of the show which is due to air next year.
In the meantime the outgoing Doctor, David Tennant, is still with us and is due to feature in 3 more special episodes to be shown this year. The first, “The Waters of Mars“, is due in November, which will be followed by a two-part Christmas special with the second part titled “The End of Time“. The Christmas special will also be the last Doctor Who story written by Russell T Davies, the man who brought the good Doctor back to TV in 2005. Davies will be succeeded as executive producer and lead writer by Steven Moffat, who has written several exceptional episodes of the show as well as penning the upcoming Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson collaboration The Adventures of Tintin.
