Moffat on Title Sequence

Viewers at the screenings have previously confirmed that the series 8 title sequence is based on the work of Billy Henshaw. Steven Moffat has now come forward to explain how that came about.
Our beautiful new title sequence — it’s absolutely stunning — is from an online Doctor Who fan. Billy Hanshaw just decided to make a Doctor Who title sequence and put it up on YouTube. I happened across it and thought it was the only new idea for a Doctor Who title sequence since 1963. We got in touch and decided we were going to do that one.

I suppose when we talk about Doctor Who fandom online, that’s what we should be talking about. We should be talking about the extraordinary creative response. We give them a show and they give us the show back, sometimes better. That’s cementing. There’s something magical about Doctor Who that makes some of the people actually want to do it.
