Because of the varying technical and logistical demands of the thirteen episodes of the first season, filming was broken into five production blocks. Episodes one, four, and five formed block one, and were filmed between July and September 2004. Block two comprised episodes two and three, and was filmed between September and October 2004. Block three contained episodes six and eight, and was filmed between October and December. Block four was split into two sub blocks, "4A" and "4B", due to the large visual effects demands of episode seven, which on its own, became block 4A, filmed between December 2004 and January 2005. Episodes nine and ten made up Block 4B, filmed from December through February 2005. Episodes eleven through thirteen formed Block five, and filmed from February until March 2005.
On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes.
In Season 5, Amy has a prologue that only exists in syndicated versions and isn't present in the original UK airings. It doesn't appear on home media (DVD) either.
