Big Finish has had to suddenly revise its cover artwork for next year’s audio releases; the BBC apparently insisted that they needed to use the logo developed for all other 50th anniversary merch. [LINK]
Yes, we’ve redecorated – and we’re sure you’ll like it. The new logo and cover design can be seen on subscriber special Doctor Who: Night of the Stormcrow, out this month for those who’ve taken out a main range subscription including Doctor Who: 1001 Nights. The story can also be pre-ordered now in advance of its full release in December 2013.
Keep an eye out, as well, for stories which tie in to the 50th anniversary in a big way – there’ll be a gorgeous anniversary TARDIS logo on these special releases…
Hmmmmm. I’m not sure what to make of the anniversary logo, but then I’ve always had that feeling every time another multiples-of-ten-years anniversary rolls around:
I’m OK with the 50th anniversary logo except for the background.
Did you put the white background in Earl, or was that the BBC? If the former then I apologize ahead of time for my harshness.
The white doesn’t work because it make the “Doctor Who” word hard to read. The two letter “O’s” are partially missing as a result. They need some kind of neutral background for the logo. A gray or dark blue perhaps.
The TARDIS is golden because it’s the 50th anniversary? OK, I guess. I agree in principal but I would rather see the original color of the TARDIS.
EDIT: OK, I see it on the 2nd CD cover and it looks OK with the blue background. It’s not a lot better or a lot worse than the other one. Slightly worse, I think.
