Doctor Who | New Season, New Star, New Logo

Doctor Who | New Season, New Star, New Logo

Jodie Whittaker takes on the titular role as Doctor Who returns to the BBC this autumn, and the show receives a new look logo to go with its new star.

A lot is changing for the new series of the BBC’s long running sci-fi family show, Doctor Who. Most notably, of course, is that Jodie Whittaker will become the first female Doctor in the show’s fifty five year history. There are three new companions too,¬†Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill will jump aboard the TARDIS for adventures in time and space.

Actors aside, the series is in the hands of new showrunner Chris Chibnall who, with an all new team, have written episodes for the eleventh season of the hugely popular show. There’s a new, as yet unnamed composer, a new digital effects company and now…

… a new logo too.

New Doctor Who Logo

Refreshing the look of the show, the new logo (seen in the image above and animation below) moves away from the previous bold silver lettering and embraces a stylised, slimmer gold font.

There’s a new ‘WHO’ insignia too (below) which follows the same design cues. Both the logo and insignia were created in close collaboration with the show’s creative team by creative agency LittleHawk.
