With a new season of ‘Doctor Who,’ fans come to expect things like a new Sonic Screwdriver, Tardis, and especially an updated version of the famous theme song! The original theme, written by Delia Darbyshire and Ron Grainer has seen many changes throughout the years of ‘Doctor Who.’
Jodie Whittaker is about to take her place behind the proverbial wheel of the Tardis, and Segun Akinola will provide a revamped version of the title song to accompany a new opening title sequence. But, fans wanting to see the new opening sequence will have to wait a little longer, as showrunner Chris Chibnall has revealed that the first episode will have a bit of a different beginning. Chibnall said:
“There’s a new opening title sequence too, and a new arrangement of the opening theme, by our brilliant new composer Segun Akinola. You’ll have to wait till episode two to see those in situ, though. Episode one starts slightly differently.”
With all the changes, it seems that one thing will remain the same in the upcoming season. A trailer was released earlier this week featuring Whittaker as the take charge, Earth-protecting Doctor that Whovians know and love. Check out that trailer below!
