I’ve been playing around with some ideas for a new Doctor Who title sequence – something based more on the abstract graphics from the early years. I’d love to have a go at realising it. Are there any CG animators out there interested in collaborating?
Torchwood. Outside the government, beyond the police. And putting our logos on EVERYTHING.
So after weeks of seeing that icon with the pumpkin and the Torchwood logo scroll by on a few fandom blogs (@iant0jones and a couple of others), and needing a design for my cousins’ annual pumpkin carving party, I finally gave in and did the thing.
To be perfectly accurate, my friend and I both did the thing, except his thing was U.N.I.T. and my thing was Torchwood. (And my pumpkin was twice the size. I’m sure there’s a Captain Jack-worthy joke lurking in there somewhere, but I’m not going in after it.)
If these pumpkins can survive two weeks without withering, we’re going to enter them in the Doctor Who pumpkin carving contest at Who North America’s Doctoberfest. (I’ve already bleached them, and when they’re dry tomorrow I’ll try to seal them to keep the thin membranes from cracking, but two weeks is longer than most carved pumpkins seem to last. If only we had a TARDIS…)
