Fans of Doctor Who will be well aware that it's not long until the sci-fi show returns to our screens. Although we'll hazard a guess that not many know about the different fonts used throughout the programme's 54 year history.

Doctor Who devotees are a dedicated bunch when it comes to trivia, and it was only a matter of time until one stepped up and catalogued the diverse typefaces used in the show's opening and closing credits. The fan in question is Clayton Hickman, former editor of Doctor Who magazine, designer of Doctor Who DVD cover art, and master of obscure Doctor Who facts.
