When there's trouble, you call DW

When there's trouble, you call DW

Well, well, what have we here? It's the new Doctor Who logo (thanks, thebitterguy!)

You know, for the most part, I actually prefer it (in spite of the now ubiquitous Darkwing Duck jokes) over the most recent crazy orange cat's eye kinda thingy logo, which had no presence and looked better suited for a Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie Presentation. This one at least has some nice stylin' art to it. Kinda dig the TARDIS-lookin initials, but the logo itself is also nice. Not as over the top as the beloved diamond logo and not as cheesy as JNT's neon one, but ... nice.

Later on today I saw a publicity shot of the new Doctor and his new companion and they both looked so young that I thought "Huh, I didn't know the Doctor was getting two companions..."

Honestly, the guy's a good-lookin' fellow and I can appreciate that but geez-o-pete, he looks like he's Jamie McCrimmon's age.

Still, I am holding out faith in Stephen Moffat. I'm hoping he'll balance out the Cutie Boy Angle with some Damn Fine Science-Fiction.
