Radio Times - Time Heist PosterBookmark and Share

Saturday, 20 September 2014 - Reported by Marcus
Radio Times' gallery of free downloadable retro posters for the current series of Doctor Who continues to grow with the creation by designer Stuart Manning for Time Heist which airs tonight.

Manning said:
Slinky Miss Delphox was the starting point for this one. Keeley Hawes' publicity pic had such a great silhouette that I immediately wanted to include it. I did a poster for Mad Men a couple of years back, using a similar treatment on Joan, and the idea stuck in my head.

The other influence was the heist movie inspiration of the episode itself, which got me thinking about things like Ocean's 11 and the Rat Pack. In my head, this a sorta special Saul Bass-style title sequence for the episode, playing alongside a Henry Mancini sax-and-harpsichord arrangement of the Doctor Who theme.
Time Heist will be broadcast at 7.30pm on BBC One.
