“This one came to me pretty much the moment I read the episode title,” says Stuart. “Astronauts and moon landings feel very 1970s to me and, combined with the colour scheme of Doctor Who’s standard-issue orange spacesuits, just somehow felt right.

“This is less of a pastiche of a specific style and more a mash-up of creepy old visuals – a bit of 2001, some ’70s bleakness and a touch of those odd, abstract thriller novel covers of the era. Think of it thoroughly foxed and creased.”
