This weekend, Doctor Who’s animated TV series starts. You’ll be able to catch the show on the Red Button on on the BBC website from Saturday. The six-part show features two new companions and an awful lot of pretty blocky looking animation.
It’s possible to argue that the animation is purposefully stylised, but I can’t quite shake the feeling that I could just as easily be watching an Xtranormal cartoon without the comedy effect supplied by the stilted speech patterns. Still, with David Tennant doing the voice acting, there’s a chance that – so long as the story is good enough – I’ll be too sucked into the action to notice that the animation leaves something to be desired.
Check out the preview below – as well as an Xtranormal Doctor Who fanvid. What do you think? Looking forward to it? Or will you be giving it a miss?
