Doctor Who: Exclusive The Caretaker poster revealed

"Film noir meets Abigail's party" in this week's offering from designer Stuart Manning

The Doctor goes under cover this week, coming face to face not only with the terrifying Skovox Blitzer, but also with Clara’s love interest Danny Pink. Designer Stuart Manning drew influences from the 50s, 60s and 70s to create his poster for episode six, The Caretaker…  


“Writer Gareth Roberts’ episodes have a wonderful sense of unfussiness about them, which somehow feels very seventies to me,” says Stuart. “So that was the starting point – blocky fonts and simple, chunky shapes. I also wanted to pick up on the theme of overlapping relationships after-hours, but in a tongue in cheek way, which inspired the silhouettes. So film noir meets Abigail’s Party seemed to fit the bill nicely.”
