Doctor Who

Colin Baker played The Doctor from the end of season 21 as brash and colourful, so designer Sid Sutton was instructed to make the titles brash and colourful. He animated the Doctor’s face by dissolving from a neutral expression to that of a beaming grin – possibly the friendliest that Colin Baker ever looked during his short tenure! Plus, rather than forming from stars, the neon logo now zoomed into place via DVE, bent down at the edges and tinted purple. For season 23 new music was commissioned to go with the titles. Dominic Glynn’s incidental music for the series was perhaps better than his go at the theme tune but it does give the Sixth Doctor an arrangement of his own.
