Another week, another stunning Doctor Who poster from Radio Times designer Stuart Manning. This time it’s for episode four Listen, a story that’s more about ideas than an actual monster, making it a challenge for Stuart to illustrate.
“This is an interesting episode to try and sum up visually, as it’s about as far away from kitsch as you’re likely to get. I love the posters from things like Rosemary’s Baby and Halloween – just a foreboding image that gives your imagination a place to start before viewing. So, in the end, I went with a slightly abstract, less literal image – somewhere between a 70s horror film and an 80s video nasty. Imagine it on VHS after dark with lots of drop-out.”
