And a brand new CGI TARDIS in the title sequence...

Curiouser and curiouser...

LOL :D

I initially thought the ones on the who titles were looking a bit non-square. But
at the right angle the square ones can look a bit rectangular.

oh :-[ they looked non-squareish to me.....wishful thinking perhaps

I can still be happy about the St John badge  :)

Is this all  the much rumoured makeover is all about, a St John's badge? I had hoped for a much better improvement than that!  ;D

I've not see the confidential yet, but there is no badge on the tweaked title sequence.  And they had to redo the titles because of the show now being shot in HD.  But who knows, maybe in the next two specials, it suddenly appears.  Maybe the Chameleon Circuit comes back into service?

I certainly noticed the new cgi tardis in the opening titles and the new tardis in the confidential episode. Not much of a change I must say they can certainly do better than that I think.

Saw the Confidential title.  It is odd how they have the St. John's badge on the TARDIS.  Other than that, it still looks the same.  And Noel does the voice over this time.  Maybe each Confidential this year will be narrated by an ex-companion?

Much nicer show title sequence TARDIS now - filched this from doctorwhoforum :

I personally don't think that Confidential is showing any hints (they've never been that accurate) and I don't tihkn we're really likely to see much of a radical re-design of interior or exterior but I'll be waiting breathlessly to find out!  :)

Odd how they have the TARDIS spinning at the same angle, but with a different side facing (and more correct color without the reflection from the vortex coloring).  Yet the vortex seems identical.

Probably just updated the Tardis model and textures, but used the same animation.   Perhaps it was a necessity because the old TARDIS looked rubbish in HD..?
My pilot's license? That's out back in the Cessna. Or perhaps you're referring to my license to kill. Revoked. Trouble at the Kazakhstan border.

I could give you the details but then I'd have to kill you, which I can't do because my license to kill has been revoked.

To avoid confusion the badge was only on the Confidential titles, just in case anyone misread my original post.

As I started this thread I better post the pics...

A friend of mine reckons they just did it so people like us would talk about it...  :P

I used to think the blueness of the Confidential titles was pretty
cool and was way nicer than the main show titles. Certainly
in-keeping with the tom baker era titles in a way.

However now from these grabs I think the confidential titles look
a bit naff. The new TARDIS on who is way nicer than the confidential
TARDIS. Despite the St. John's.

As to why it has a St. John's, it's probably done by different people
who don't communicate. And they worked from different refs.

The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.

And the press get fed the scapegoats,
