Poster Spotting on Dr Who

17th April 2010: “The Doctor is summoned to Blitz-torn London by Winston Churchill, and the Daleks are waiting for him!” Visit the BBC site.

This looks a bit like "Feed the Pigs" in the Background!

Interestingly, I didn’t recognise any of the posters, but the above is MOST DEFINITELY not a real wartime poster (here’s one of the real ones), interesting decision by the BBC not to use real posters!

  1. With my ex-tv hat on, it would be the copyright payments that would have put them off using real ones.
    Using any image which isn’t out of copyright is painfully expensive, and you pay more, the longer the image is on screen (generally per 5 or 10 secs). So having it hanging around in the background of a scene can take quite a chunk out of your budget…

    1. That doesn’t surprise me! I was interviewed for a BBC programme in the Imperial War Museum, and it took them a while to ensure that we were in front of a poster that would be clear!
