This is a phrase from the Doctor Who. It started being said at the beginning of season 5. If you have ever had a awkward conversation or an argument with another person, you know silence can have weight and meaning. No one knew what it meant but the feeling was ominous nonetheless and brought tension everytime the phrase was said. All through the season, the fans knew The Silence was coming.

I wanted to try to illustrate that with this drawing. I used perspective and stretched the letters to give it the sense of an imminent threat and create tension. I draw the letters but thought it would look more ominous on a black background so I scanned the drawing and inverted it.
