The Radio Times has released the poster for Saturday’s upcoming episode “Dark Water.” The designer, Stuart Manning, has designed a poster for every episode of series 8 so far. Manning says of this design:
“A retro Art Deco-style poster seemed like a perfect match for the current Cyberman designs. I actually wanted to do something like this for the Mummy episode earlier in the series, but rough-edged mummies and clean Deco lines just didn’t get along.
Here I’ve drawn on the title sequences of 1930s Universal films and Republic Pictures serials – lots of simplified sweeping shapes with a slightly coarse airbrushed look, with perhaps a touch of Metropolis if you squint.”
