Bookmark and Share Robot of Sherwood poster available for free download

A free downloadable retro poster for tonight's episode Robot of Sherwood has been made available by Radio Times.

It follows the posters produced by the listings magazine for the preceding two episodes of Series 8 and, as with those, has been designed by Stuart Manning, who commented:
Gotta love a robot!

This one has definite shades of Metropolis, particularly on the logo itself and the symmetrical robot image. It's a great, lurid episode title, so I took the lead from that.

The end result is probably somewhere between a pulp novel and the packaging for a '50s tin-plate toy. I'd happily buy a wind-up Doctor Who robot knight, now you mention it.
Radio Times has said there will be a poster for every episode this series.

Robot of Sherwood is scheduled to be broadcast at 7.30pm on BBC One.

This week's iPad and iPhone edition of Radio Times has a preview gallery for the episode plus an interview from 2005 with Mark Gatiss, who has written tonight's episode. In the interview, he talks about celebrity historicals in Doctor Who.
