The title sequence for the new series of sci-fi TV show Doctor Who has been inspired by a fan-made clip on Youtube.

Billy Hanshaw, a motion graphics designer from Leeds, put together his own version of a title sequence for the new Peter Capaldi-starring series which received over 700,000 views and eventually found its way to Doctor Who show-runner Steven Moffat, reported BBC online.

"Hanshaw created this title sequence, put it up on YouTube. I happened to cross it, and it was the only new title idea I'd seen since 1963. We got in touch with him, and said, okay, we're going to do that one," Moffat said.

The new Doctor Who title sequence inspired by Hanshaw's creation will be unveiled on August 23, when series eight opener Deep Breath airs.
