Get ready for the new daily show

Excited for the new Doctor Who theme? Well, you’ve a while longer to wait…

One of the things I look forward to most when a new series of Doctor Who begins, especially when we get a new Doctor, is the new theme and this year, with Jodie Whittaker stepping into the TARDIS is no different.

Although it looks like we’ll have a longer wait this series.

Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine, new showrunner Chris Chibnall has said we won’t be hearing composer Segun Akinola’s new theme in Whittaker’s debut episode, The Woman Who Fell To Earth.


“You’ll have to wait till episode two to see [the new titles and theme] in situ,” Chibnall says, “Episode one starts a little differently.”

What does this mean? It’s not Doctor Who without the theme… so what will we get that’s ‘different’? We’ll all know in just under three weeks.

Doctor Who returns on Sunday, October 7 on BBC One.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
