Doctor Who News Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor

Feels Different This Time…

Welcome, dear reader, to the new-look Kasterborous! We’ve been scurrying around behind the scenes for several weeks finalising this design, and with the help of some lovely logos and emblems from James McLean, we’ve reached that moment.

It feels different this time, but you were hardly expecting someone else, where you? After all, when you type into your browser, you’re looking for the latest Doctor Who news, reviews and some interesting interviews and features. Well, we’ve got them all here, as ever, in a slightly different blend.

With the shape of the Internet changing on an almost daily basis, we’ve taken steps to make sure that you can get the latest from Kasterborous wherever you are. The new layout is designed to be viewed perfectly in any current browser, on any platform – which means if you’re a fan of browsing on your smartphone or tablet, everything should be looking pretty swizz right now.

Meanwhile, we’ve got a few multimedia projects in development (you already know about Kasterborous Magazine, of course) and over the course of the next few weeks you’ll see a selection of new pages appearing on the menu across the top of the page. It’s all pretty exciting, we think you’ll agree.

After 8 years in development (going live on January 1st 2005) this is’s sixth layout. It might not be as garish as a certain Time Lord’s coat, but that old body wasn’t going to last much longer (especially if you were viewing us in Internet Explorer). You see, it’s change, my dear, and not a moment too soon. Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor

This is Kasterborous, whether you like it or not!

    Very first impressions: It’s very clean, which is definitely an improvement. The top banner, though, looks like an amateur effort, which could be good because it does make it definitely look like a fan site. The squished and stretched images, however, look horrid; please fix them.

    • Hi David

      The stretched images are (we think) due to them being uploaded with the previous theme and related tools. They should resolve as more items are posted with the new look.

      Thanks for your kind words!

    I see you’ve re-decorated. I don’t like it. :p

    One thing I always liked about coming here was that it felt professional even if it was just a fan-site. A lot of that had to do with your previous logo. It was strong, difficult to reproduce, and really came to hold the essence of the site. The last version’s layout, an obvious improvement, really tipped the site forward with that logo as the anchor.

    As it is now, I really don’t care for the new iteration. It makes me feel uncomfortable, like I’m just at some sixteen year old kid’s blog… but as it says in the article, it’s here whether I like it or not. o.O

    Well, the nose is a definite improvement.

    One thing i would maybe say is be careful, about how readable it is. I’m colourblind so some colours don’t match that well
