London: 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, reportedly.

"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.
