I was hoping there'd be a second, non-Doctor Who ident but it appears there isn't going to be one, so I've deleted BBC One from my DTT EPG
and detuned it from analogue. I may or may not bother to retune in January.
I really can't stand the glorified Dr Who promo, I'm sorry. Yes they've spent a lot of money on it and as other posters have said, it looks beautiful - well so does the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, but you wouldn't have that as a BBC One ident just because 'it looks beautiful'. As a CHRISTMAS ident this abysmal effort (like the three before it) just fails.
I honestly cannot believe you are real and am fast believing you make these ridiculous statements merely to get a reaction. Well some reaction is better than none I guess...
Not a lot more to say about the main ident as that has been done to death - the news ident is absolutely stunning though. It would be nice if there was one that could lead into the news all year round with music that's a bit more sombre and subtle. Very nice, but it's a shame that people will get bored of it due to the early launch date. They really should have focussed their efforts on the promos up until a couple of days before and then left this ident till nearer Christmas Eve.
