In light of the recent overhaul of the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site – which went as far as a new section and some relabelling – TVSquad have asked “is that it?”
It’s a fair point – the current look has been with the site for 2 years now, and since we’ve all known about David Tennant’s departure for almost a year the guys behind the BBC site (who do a sterling job) have had more than enough time to plan something more than a change of focus from the TV show to a short animated series.
With 2009 offering only a few Who specials and turning the series into a sporadic event until it returns full-time in 2010, the BBC has time to revamp the show’s image and identity online.
The effectiveness of their efforts so far are debatable as they seem to be looking backward more than forward to the new Matt Smith/11th Doctor era.
A new era for Doctor Who fans beckons day by day – only yesterday we reported on David Tennant’s description of the Sword of Damocles hovering above the Tenth Doctor – and it would be a terrible shame if the one official home of Doctor Who didn’t receive a more considerable overhaul in the next 6 months…
