Did the adventure on Space Station Chasm Forge leave us breathless with excitement, or was this fifth episode running on empty?

TELEVISION

BBC ONE

BROADCAST Saturday 13 May 2017

In 1962, Aldo Novarese designed the future, and he called it Eurostile. A geometric, sans-serif typeface, and a successor to the similar Microgramma (1952), it became the Doctor Who credit font from 1966 through to the end of the decade.

As the brilliant website www.typesetinthefuture.com notes, so many sci-fi productions have opted for the modernist Eurostile (more often than not in its Bold Extended variant) that it’s become a more effective indicator of the world of tomorrow than any marquee effects shot. You’ll see it in 2001: A Space Odyssey, Silent Running, Moon and Space: 1999. And it’s all over Red Dwarf (NB Matt Clark, one of the graphic artists credited on this episode also worked on the upcoming 12th series of the space sitcom).
