Bookmark and Share Into The Dalek poster produced for free download by Radio Times

Radio Times has produced a free downloadable poster for tonight's episode Into The Dalek.

It has been designed by Stuart Manning, who said:
This episode's poster is based loosely on Disneyworld's 1950s Tomorrowland poster art. The Daleks obviously came a little later, but visually they're very Sputnik-era aliens.

The tunnel of shrinking Doctors is taken from one of Jon Pertwee's title sequences. As a childhood viewer of the Third Doctor, I think it's a visual reference Peter Capaldi might approve of.
Last week's Series 8 opener Deep Breath was similarly afforded a Radio Times poster, which was also designed by Manning. Whether this means there will be a poster for each episode of this series is not yet known.

In previous years, the BBC has produced movie-style posters for Doctor Who episodes, but there has been none from the corporation so far for this series. Last October, Radio Times produced free downloadable Manning-designed retro posters to celebrate the return of the nine episodes from The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear.

Into The Dalek is scheduled to be broadcast at 7.30pm on BBC One.

This week's iPad and iPhone edition of Radio Times has a gallery of unseen and rare Dalek images plus an interview from 1964 with the writer Terry Nation, who created the Daleks.
