Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup; a shallow dive into the deep pool of Whovian creativity, news and silliness from the past week on the internet.

And we begin this week with a remarkable fan-made credits sequence for Jodie Whittaker’s first episode. It’s the result of a collaboration between graphic designer Stuart Manning, motion designer Jonny Eveson and composer Blair Mowat, and they’ve rethought the entire sequence to stunning effect:

Jonny even wrote a blog explaining how their ideas came to fruition, including this alternate version, working from a different idea:

Of course, not all fan animation has to be this plush, as this pixellated Thirteen illustrates:

Whereas this is simply master-ful:

Here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week:

• Happy anniversary, new Whovians!

• Naturally, the anniversary of “Rose” has spurred fans on to new heights of invention. For example, here’s thirteen years, condensed into one 78-second thrill ride:

• Or this moment between the Ninth Doctor and (ahem) rose:

• And this superb fan art:

• And look, soon you’ll get to start the whole adventure again in book form:

• Not like this, this is a spoof:

• And while we’re larking about with Target book covers:

• Mixital wants your Rory stories:

• What it feels like to find a lost Doctor Who episode:

• Feline scared yet?

Doctor Who meets Orphan Black:

• The Twelfth Doctor gives good rock’n’roll advice:

• And he’s no slouch at posing with a guitar either:

• Now we need to see Thirteen in Six’s rainbow coat:

• No, not that coat:

• Speaking of Thirteen…

• And here she is again:

• Good work!

• This is lovely, the letter Doctor Who co-creator Sydney Newman wrote to Carole Ann Ford—who played the Doctor’s granddaughter Susan—in reply to her letter thanking him for the experience:

• Fez AND bow tie. That’s cool squared:

• Clara’s Victorian dress recreated:

• A trip into the TARDIS here:

• That’s not a sonic banana, is it?

• And finally, who fancies ending this week on a ukulele singalong with Peter Capaldi?
