Doctor Who's brand new look has split fans

The BBC has revealed a brand new look for Doctor Who ahead of the new series.

Doctor Who's 11th series won't launch until October 2018 but already first teasers have been revealed.

And so far, fans have been rather split on what to make of it all.

Sharing a new video and logo on Twitter, the official BBC Doctor Who Twitter posted: "New Doctor, New Series, New Logo #DoctorWho"

"A new era of #DoctorWho is dawning…" they then added.

On the one hand there was a LOT of love for the new titles.

"OH MY GOODNESS. THE FEELS. I AM IN LOVE. #DoctorWho" declared one fan in response.

But others weren't as enthusiastic.

"Like a medieval TV series. I don't like it. Change it, now. Where is TARDIS' blue?" reacted another.

And a third had bigger concerns, writing: "I mean, it's a logo. Looks fine to me but I can't say it's something I worry about, more important things that need to be 'right' with the show."

Broadchurch star Jodie Whittaker will become the first ever woman Doctor when the main series launches this year, fresh from the Christmas special.

She'll join the series alongside another Broadchurch name, creator Chris Chibnall who will become the new Doctor Who showrunner.

Jodie said: "I'm beyond excited to begin this epic journey - with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet.

"It's more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can't wait."

Outgoing Doctor Peter Capaldi said last year: "Doctor Who has taken me on an amazing journey.

"Now that it’s coming to an end, I wish the Doctor all the very best for the future, and the past, and everything in-between. Time I was off."
