The Creepy Kids Are Coming, Be Warned
TWoP: This is the first time that we're getting it close to the same time as the UK. Are you happy about that?
Lyn: It just makes perfect sense, just 'cause the world is all joined on the internet. Everybody is reading the same blogs and websites. You know it just makes perfect sense that this one story gets released all at once. If you start getting kind of spoiled, if it's in danger of getting spoiled for you, it's much more fun to discover as the story unfolded. The other thing which I think is brilliant at having a global effect is that it's a global story. We've got one story about this entity which says, "We are coming".
TWoP: Through little kids, which freaks me out.
Lyn: I know. If you want to scare the audience get a scary kid in.
TWoP: The Doctor Who episode with the "Are you my mummy" kids. I have nightmares about that episode still. Lyn: It's really [creepy].
TWoP: That episode and the two library episodes of DW you directed give me the heebie jeebies. There's something about people with masks that I just can't deal with.
Lyn: It just takes away the soul doesn't it? A mask? Cause it's just that fixed expression.
TWoP: So you're also directing the final David Tennant episode?
Lyn: David Tennant's farewell. Yeah.
TWoP: Is that a little pressure?
Lyn: It's huge pressure 'cause I know it's going to be such a huge event. Especially in the UK, but I guess here as well. And I just want it to be brilliant for David's sake. And it's producer [Russell T. Davies'] farewell as well. And I want it to be fantastic for them. I've not seen the script yet. I don't know what the story is.
