Then read the folowing:

Has the title sequence been revamped? NO!!!

Has the theme been revamped? NO!!!


You know what, Steven Moffat is scared to change the title sequence to the following as well as the theme:

Bear in mind, I would have taken the Russell T Davies's vortex graphics and replaced it on the lines of the 1996 TV Movie.

Um, the theme and title sequence were different.

Besides, I wouldn't take what Moffat says that seriously, it's kayfabe, to use the pro wrestling/carny term. He doesn't lie, he requires you to suspend your disbelief for a successful show. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kayfabe

Listen to the theme before the revamp and then compare it with the revamp.

Notice anything?

Nope, still the same.

And the same thing goes for the title sequence.

Were you expecting a massive departure from the usual Doctor Who theme? Also, when I listened to it, I noticed several differences, namely, when the names pop up on screen, the theme sounds more haunting than it has done since the relaunch in 2005.

And really? The title sequence hasnt been revamped? It looks totally different to anything we've seen since 2005, since they arent based around the TARDIS flying through the vortex this time.

Both the theme and titles have changed, so you are wrong on both counts.

Oh, and your thread title makes no sense, thats wrong also.

The title sequence is different, but the theme tune can hardly be heard of as differing from the previous. Just little nuances, in the same way that the original version was replaced with a new, but same style back in 1967.

So, as an answer to FIFA1966, it is not the same - ergo it is different, albeit slightly.. Revamped, just as stated.

Which drives a coach & horses through this thread's premise that it has not changed.

The title sequence should be more about ghosts.

No, I don't think it means revamped. The Matt Smith version is revamp of the previous versions. Altering it slightly doesn't mean it is. And I should know being a musician.

As a graphic designer I like to think I notice small details, especially graphic / visual elements. You're right they are practically identical. How hoodwinked do I feel now?

Well, I'm not a musician, and to me it has been altered, slightly rearranged (aka a new arrangement of the basic theme), so to me it fits the generally accepted definition of a revamp. And even the BBC say that it is revamped.

So that's good enough for me.

If you're a musician, then surely you heard that the differences in instruments outnumbered the similarities? As a singer, I heard it immediately.

If you can't hear it yet, I think you should seek out good quality recordings of the two and listen - otherwise I'd be worried about your hearing (not a dig - they really are two very different themes on the same thing).

If you can't see any difference between the new title sequence and the old one, then you are either completely blind or too insanely imbecilic to function.
The theme tune is more or less the same, but there are a few subtle differences such as the complete removal of the sequence dubbed "the chase" and the addition of some more retro sounding bits.

Like I said, there is no difference.

Case of point:

Clouds.

If you mean all clouds are the same, then in that you would also be grossly oversimplifying, and would actually be proving the argument against your case.

Maybe you should look for a better analogy, or perhaps drop it, as your assertion is incorrect in the first place.
