Tangentially, Segun's arrangement of the title theme is my favourite since the show came back, which starts quite David Arnold-y then dips with the bass drop and kicks in with the re-arranged Delia theme. That's just terrific. Sounds very contemporary and very classic which is I think exactly what Segun was going for. I kinda loved Murray's one off for the Day Of The Doctor but he never quite nailed an ongoing version of the theme for me despite most of his work being, for my money (and since I bought all the soundtracks it is my money! absolutely terrific.
I thought the TARDIS interior became a bit more interesting in Resolution when Jodie was able to throw screens around and project holograms etc but the sickly yellow tone and the far too intrusive crystaline columns just don't allow for any real sense of space. Still in the last series the TARDIS went back to being pretty much just the device to get us from story end to the next story start rather than be somewhere much of the exposition or back and forth would be so I'm not terribly fussed if it stays.
The visuals are clearly also doing their own interpretation of the classic - in having the kaleidoscopic, colourful burst it's very much 70s infused but again like the theme not out of place in our time. I did like that the Capaldi era titles explicitly made reference to the time element rather than just space but I'm happy with these looking at them now far removed from the actual airing. Feels very odd we're just over a month till the one year mark that S11 dropped. Time flies when you're having fun.
