Doctor Who Season 8 Premiere on Tumblr | Above gifset source (x)
Doctor Who has one of the biggest and most highly engaged fandoms on Tumblr, and this weekend they were out in full force again for the 8th season premiere of the show since its reboot; this season featuring a new Doctor, redecorated TARDIS, and the redone show opening seen above, currently the most popular Doctor Who related post on Tumblr.
From Friday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 24th, 59.5k posts were made about Doctor Who by a community of 796.4k Tumblr users, earning 3.6 million notes. That’s an average of 61 notes per post, putting a single weekend of Doctor Who on par with a month’s worth of posts from the science community.
Gifsets are popular in Tumblr fandom for their ability to replay small moments that lend greater significance to characters and moments in a series that are easy to miss during a show’s initial run. The official Doctor Who Tumblr understands this about their audience and uses a lot of gifsets in their posts.
Very cleverly done.

How a Whovian Created The Show’s New Titles
"Hanshaw created this title sequence, put it up on YouTube," Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat explained at a recent fan event in New York.
“I happened across it, and it was the only new title idea I’d seen since 1963. We got in touch with him, and said, ‘OK, we’re going to do that one.’”
Mr Hanshaw thought it was “a wind-up” when Moffat’s fellow executive producer Brian Minchin got in touch. “I had to pinch myself because I didn’t know if it was really happening,” he says.
“It’s one of those stories about people putting something on YouTube - it’s usually a musician this happens to. They put a performance on there and they get picked up by a label. “It’s a similar kind of story. I thought, these things don’t generally happen.”
We asked everyone to post their questions to Chris Hardwick yesterday for a Tumblr Q&A where Chris will be answering questions from Doctor Who Tumblr, and you guise had a lot of great things to ask! Chris will be hosting Doctor Who: After Who Live on BBC America at 11/10c after the series premiere of INTRUDERS and Doctor Who series 8. The Tumblr Q&A is starting right now!
