New Theme Tune & Title Sequence Announced!

The BBC have confirmed that this year's Doctor Who Christmas special will receive a new title squence and theme tune, read on for further details:

Something cold, something new… Not only will we be treated to a new Tardis during The Snowmen but the episode will premiere a revamped theme tune and opening title sequence.

We can’t give too much away about the new-look titles except to say they are wonderfully dramatic and striking, with a couple of unexpected touches. In short, they’re a perfect way to welcome back the Doctor!

And fans of the famous Doctor Who theme tune needn’t worry… This new arrangement remains true to the original, written by Ron Grainer back in 1963, but on Christmas Day you’ll hear it as it’s never sounded before. This latest version is more thrilling and powerful but retains that slightly scary quality that remains stirring no matter how many times you catch it.

Doctor Who: The Snowmen will broadcast Christmas Day at 5:15pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
