Shortly after the broadcast of Sky/HBO's The Third Day’s live episode, Autumn, starring Jude Law and created by Punchdrunk and director Marc Munden, Stephen Volk (creator of the BBC’s notorious Halloween "live" event, Ghostwatch) and novelist and short story writer Robert Shearman (also screenwriter of Dalek for Doctor Who) got together via Zoom with Paul Simpson of SciFi Bulletin to discuss the remarkable, genre-bending folk horror 12-hour event. Their conversation, lightly edited for clarity, can be found on SciFi Bulletin. It also contains some spoilers for the first three episodes of The Third Day, as well as the all-day theatrical event.
