“A retro Art Deco-style poster seemed like a perfect match for the current Cyberman designs. I actually wanted to do something like this for the Mummy episode earlier in the series, but rough-edged mummies and clean Deco lines just didn’t get along.”

“Here I’ve drawn on the title sequences of 1930s Universal films and Republic Pictures serials – lots of simplified sweeping shapes with a slightly coarse airbrushed look, with perhaps a touch of Metropolis if you squint.” via Radio Times
