DIRECTOR PAUL WILMSHURST REVEALS THE SECRET OF MAKING
DOCTOR WHO AS SCARY AS POSSIBLE – EXCLUSIVELY IN DWM 483!
Paul Wilmshurst, director of the recent Doctor
Who episodes Kill the Moon,
Mummy on the Orient Express and
Last Christmas, explains the challenges of working
on the series, in his first major interview....
"We were all very proud of the fact that the Mummy was so scary
they wouldn't put it in the series trailer," Paul tells DWM.
"It's always about how far can you go? I think the old joke is
true: how complicated can you make it to hold a child's
attention, and how simple can you make it for adults? Can you
make it scary enough for the children to be satisfied, but not
too scary for the adults to be worried?"
