Or plain, for your pleasure:


Pretty, aren't they? It's another in the series from Lee Binding, the graphic designer behind Tea-Lady Design commissioned by the BBC for Doctor Who's publicity posters since Series 7, and perhaps his best work so far.

The Doctors are looking rather solemn, except for John Hurt's Doctor-but-not-The-Doctor Doctor, who frankly looks like a bit of a badass walking through some exploding Daleks without a care in the world. He's surrounded by some interesting tidbits though - destroyed Gallifreyan architecture, one of the Doors of the TARDIS seemingly detached from its frame, and a wall with the ominous 'Bad Wolf' sprayed over it. Despite a credit, Billie Piper is nowhere in sight. Whatever could it mean...


The poster unveiling comes with along with the 'reveal' (shame it leaked about 12 hours early!) of the BBC's programming schedule for the 50th Anniversary which, alongside the 75 minute special, will include a vast array of events across BBC platforms - including a Culture Show special, a Lecture on the show's science hosted by Professor Brian Cox, and a special broadcast of the remastered edition of An Unearthly Child.
