“It’s the finale! I wanted to do something really simple and stark for this, which was absolutely in no way dictated by stringent embargoes and a lack of advance plot info.” 

“I love Rorschach-style inkblots, not least because they look like 1960s Doctor Who title sequences, and they dovetail nicely with the symmetrical shapes of the Cybermen. 

“It only occurred to me afterwards that the whole image is loosely influenced by Daniel Kleinman’s amazing title sequence for Skyfall – if you’re going to steal, steal from the best. I expect it’s how the opening titles to the new exciting spin-off series Missy Master will look…” Stuart told RadioTimes.com
