Use the Doctor who classic logo on the Classic Season 12 boxset not the new series logo.

BBC Worldwide have announced the fantastic news that they are releasing Season 12 of the Doctor Who classic series on blu-ray. This is great news for fans and collectors, especially now they’re moving to complete season boxsets.

My only complaint is that the ‘indicative artwork’ (it does state that the design is not final) uses the brand new logo instead of the old classic logo. My problems with this are three-fold:

1) The new logo (which is to be used for Jodie Whittaker’s run as The Doctor) had nothing to do with Tom Baker’s Doctor.

2) Using the current logo instantly dates the release. If they used the classic logo instead, that would be far more fitting with the boxset.

3) The complete run of Classic Who season releases will not be completed before the new logo changes again; so would later releases change again to keep up with the next logo? If so, this creates inconsistency and will spoil the look of the collection on the shelf.

This petition is therefore to appeal to BBC Worldwide to change the packaging on the upcoming Season 12 blu-ray to stop using the new Who logo and either use the logo that was used for Season 12 at the time of airing, or use the same uniform Doctor Who logo that was used throughout the classic DVD releases.

Many thanks and we look forward to all future classic season boxset releases.
