Doctor Who: Radio Times Episode Poster For Kill The Moon

Radio Times designer Stuart Manning has revealed his design for the "Kill the Moon" poster, the seventh episode of series 8. Manning says of his design,
"This one came to me pretty much the moment I read the episode title. Astronauts and moon landings feel very 1970s to me and, combined with the colour scheme of Doctor Who's standard-issue orange spacesuits, just somehow felt right.

This is less of a pastiche of a specific style and more a mash-up of creepy old visuals – a bit of 2001, some '70s bleakness and a touch of those odd, abstract thriller novel covers of the era. Think of it thoroughly foxed and creased."

"Kill the Moon" airs at 8.30pm Saturday, 4 October on BBC One, and at 9/8 CST on BBC America.
