The idents started with series 8, but reappear for series 9.
Talk about it here.
|Series 8 BBC idents|
|Featuring:||The Doctor's TARDIS, Daleks|
The idents consisted of two modified 15-second idents from the current BBC One 'Circle' idents set. They were shown semi-regularly during the weeks running up to the Series 8 premiere before becoming exclusive to Saturdays during the series' run.
- Hippos: In this edit of the "Hippos" ident, numerous hippoes swim around in a circular formation as the Doctor's TARDIS flies above them.
- Capes: In this edit of the "Capes" ident, numerous people in colourful rain coats on bikes ride through a rain storm, as people watch, the sun comes out. The transmission is momentarily interrupted by the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) from the interior of the TARDIS. The final shot shows all the bikers forming a rainbow-like circle at a roundabout, now with a lone Dalek among the crowd firing several shots into the centre of the circle.
