Seven Percent by A.L. Cook

Inspired by a passage from “The Man With the Twisted Lip”

He took off his coat and waistcoat, put on a large blue dressing-gown, and then wandered about the room collecting pillows from his bed and cushions from the sofa and armchairs.  With these he constructed a sort of Eastern divan, upon which he perched himself cross-legged, with an ounce of shag tobacco and a box of matches laid out in front of him  In the dim light of the lamp I saw him sitting there, an old briar pipe between his lips, his eyes fixed vacantly upon the corner of the ceiling, the blue smoke curling up from him, silent, motionless, with the light shining upon his strong-set aquiline features.

Doctor Who: Exclusive The Caretaker poster revealed

The Doctor goes under cover this week, coming face to face not only with the terrifying Skovox Blitzer, but also with Clara’s love interest Danny Pink. Designer Stuart Manning drew influences from the 50s, 60s and 70s to create his poster for episode six, The Caretaker…  
"Writer Gareth Roberts’ episodes have a wonderful sense of unfussiness about them, which somehow feels very seventies to me," says Stuart. "So that was the starting point – blocky fonts and simple, chunky shapes. I also wanted to pick up on the theme of overlapping relationships after-hours, but in a tongue in cheek way, which inspired the silhouettes. So film noir meets Abigail’s Party seemed to fit the bill nicely."
