The original video was created by Billy Hanshaw.

And you can listen to a bootleg of the new theme arrangement HERE

It’s a bit more orchestral than some of the arrangements we’ve had of late, there’s even a bit of warbling female vocal in there if I’m hearing right!

Love the new title sequence – can’t wait to see it properly on the telly in a fortnight!

Episode Two clips!

capaldi launch interview

The BBC News report on today’s Series Eight launch included a couple of brief clips from episode two, Into The Dalek. So now peeps know the Daleks are back, which us Leak-ers have known for a while now.

Note the bookcase behind Capaldi during the interview – The Doctor reads books now, books are cool. Nice to see the show doing its bit to encourage child literacy – the urchins can go and read all those Terrance Dicks books for a start!

Tenth Anniversary Special?

I did question, a while back, if there would be any acknowledgement of Ten Years of the news series in Series Nine…

Series Eight credits first glimpse

from Combom

series eight credits

looks like the same sort of thing as we had in Series Seven and the Specials, only more sort of green-y blue rather than burgundy. And it looks like the credits are still going to be in those spinning disc things from Day of the Doctor. I like it.

Anybody know what the font is though? Looks a bit like an extended Haettenschweiler…

And according to Moff in this BBC Radio Wales Interview, both Peter AND Jenna are onboard for Xmas. Yay! Capaldi is on the same prog but you need to scroll to 2.52.00 to hear him.

series eight titles

looks like clockwork cogs and clocks etc could be a motif, unless it’s only for the first episode, given what we know about it [if you checked out the leak, that is!] Maybe they’ll all be slightly different like Series Six Part Two…

Planet 55 Say No New Who

Thanks to Doctor Who News, we’ve got this headscratcher from the P55 folks to think about…

planet 55 doctor who animation

So, what are we to make of that? And what does it mean for The Underwater Menace?

Well, let’s examine the possibilities. Let’s start with Planet 55. Either they’re telling the truth, or they’re lying. I said a while back that I thought the reason it had all gone quiet on the Zaroff front was due to their relocation plans. Seems that’s not the case. Which only really leaves two possibilities.

The first is that the episodes are being animated by someone else. P55 have been the main animators thus far but that doesn’t mean the Beeb haven’t gone back to Qurios or Cosgrove Hall or someone completely new to work on the project. So this statement does not mean that missing episode animations are not happening, only that P55 aren’t doing them. If they’re telling the truth.

The other possibility concerns the actual videotaped episodes themselves. One, the Beeb already have the missing two episodes and are keeping shtum for whatever commercial reason or Two they are pretty confident that Flip Maurice is going to find them and don’t want to commit to animating them until they’re sure that they either exist or don’t.

In a way I’m really disappointed by this statement, not that I’m a huge fan of P55’s style of animation ‘cos I ain’t, but because it’ll only make the ming-mongs all the more determined to see something in it that isn’t necessarily there.

Of course, it would help if either Flip Maurice or Dan Hall would just come right out and tell us WTF’s going on but the fact remains that this does nothing to put the issue to bed, meaning it will rumble on.

The only verifiable facts we have are these:
that the BBC has in its posession two episodes of the four part story The Underwater Menace.
Episode Two was announced as having been found in December 2011, coming up on three years ago.
The story has not been released on DVD and the BBC have not announced any plans to do so.
Episode Two remains the only complete episode of Classic Doctor Who not to have been released on DVD.

Doctor Who Worldwide have a timeline of events HERE. Looking at it you can only conclude that the reason the DVD release of TUW is on hold is that they the think they’ve found it. And the conclusion from that, allied to Flip Maurice’s recent statement about “the wind blowing in the right direction” is that they reckon they know where more eps are and nobody wants to move until they’re sure. But, until someone actually makes an announcement and says they have more ep, we all need to be patient and stay calm!
