This is my first poster for the new series of Doctor Who! Each episode from series 6 will get its own poster design, and will be available for 2 weeks each on my BigCartel store:

I really am looking forward to making every episodes poster. Each episodes poster will go online one week after its airing in the UK.

Thanks for all the support on DeviantArt I have had over the past year or so :) And I can't wait to see what you all think of this series.

I feel as though the astronaut shouldn't be leaning back so much; the pose suggests that she's pointing and laughing rather than shooting magic green finger bullets

In some great alternate ending, the astronaut approaches, points, and instead of blasting the doctor away, just laughs at his serious face :P
Thanks for the feedback though. I took the exact stance from a screenshot of the show, but it could have done with some slight altering on a second glance :)

This was easily the best opening episode of the show since it was brought back in 2005.

I can't wait to see where Steven Moffat goes with this storyline.

Let's just hope it doesn't end with a cop-out.

I doubt Moffat will cop out on us with the series finale. What did you make of Good Man Goes To War?

The opening was brilliant, an excellent catalyst for the series. Really enjoyed it and left me wanting more :)

I thought that the episode was great.

Especially the twist at the end. Did NOT see that one coming.

There was a LOT in that episode to take in. Was a thrill ride. Loved every minute :)

Hey, I ordered this poster a while ago and still haven't received it. Do you happen to know how long these take to ship?

Hey! Posters are shipped from the UK, so they can take a couple of weeks to get to you. Drop me an email here: [link] if you have any more questions about your order and I will get back to you ASAP.
Hope it gets to you alright! :D

Gods this brilliant. I saw this on the Doctor Who tumblr and am glad it's here so I can comment on it. It's just so simple and precise and encompassigly iconic of this episode; Love the clean design, and the monochromatic color scheme that gives off a dark, moody, mysterious tone that relates to the feelings most of us had after watching the episode. It's awesome, I love it. I saw you make one for Day of the Moon and I hope you continue to make more, they are just so refreshingly and visually NEAT. Like the sans typography too :heart:

Hey, thanks for the detailed comment. Nice to get a full analysis on my work every now and then. I try to keep my posters as simple as possible, maintaining 2/3 shades of a certain colour per poster. Really hope you keep like the rest of the poster series!

It seems to be the more popular of the series posters so far. I really liked the Doctor's Wife episode on Saturday, so I hope I do this weeks poster design justice!
