Earlier today The Nerdist tweeted a link to an article showcasing this imaginative, animated Doctor Who opening sequence. The artist responsible for this little bit of wonderment is Stephen Byrne. You can find him on Twitter here @stephenbyrne86 and on his Facebook page Artwork of Stephen Byrne. Everything about this video is well thought out and, well, super cute.
Byrne doesn’t miss a single trick in his video. It starts with a panning shot of all the previous Doctors, beginning in black-and-white and transitioning to color as John Pertwee’s Doctor passes the center of the screen. The Doctor is an unusually smiley Peter Capaldi and Clara is a little girl.
They’re joined by a marshmallowy Adipose and Handles the Cyberman head. Naturally, no kid-friendly Doctor Who iteration would be complete without K-9 along for the ride. We even see cartoonish versions of a Dalek, a Weeping Angel, and a Silent (that little Clara immediately forgets when she turns her head).
