Revealed! The Surprising Inspiration Behind the New Doctor Who Title Sequence...by Eva84, Saturday August 30, 2014
From fan-made video to prime-time telly!
Picture this: you create a video dedicated to a fandom you love, stick it on Youtube, and next thing you know, the big-wigs behind your fave show snap it up for their official title sequence.
Sound too good to be true? Well, that's exactly what happened to hard-core Whovian Billy Henshaw! Henshaw, a graphic designer, uploaded his own awesome intro for the brand new series, and it quickly caught the attention of Doctor Who overlord Stephen Moffat, who decided it was good enough to base the real thing on.
We LOVE this–proof that no-one knows what's best for a show than its fans! So keep filming, scribbling and creating. It could be your fan-art that becomes the next big thing!
