A Tale of Ten Logos
  • Check out the evolution of the Doctor Who logo...

We exclusively revealed the new logo at 08:00 on 6th October, 2009. The day before, we ran the following feature, surveying the past and looking ahead to the future...

Doctor Who has engaged and amazed a global audience for over forty years, constantly raising the bar and regenerating to deliver new and compelling adventures. It's all change again in 2010 with Matt Smith playing the Eleventh Doctor, Karen Gillan onboard as companion Amy Pond and a brilliant, brand new logo!

On one level, the logo is the iconic image that represents Doctor Who. But it's much more than that - it becomes an icon that is recognised from Cardiff to California, an emblem of excitement, humour, scary monsters, brave companions and the Doctor! And so the new logo must be stylish, fresh, distinctive and bold. Must be. And will be. See for yourself when we reveal it exclusively, on this site at 8am on Tuesday, 6th October!

In the meantime, take a look at what the new logo must live up to, with our exclusive video showcasing the current and previous logos. Or step back in time in our gallery that gives you every logo with a little info on each... which was your logo?
