Those of a sensitive disposition should look away now. David has recently been lending his whistling talent to the soundtrack of a spooky new children’s TV series.
Creeped Out is an anthology of modern-day ghost stories which aired on CBBC (formerly known as Children’s BBC).
The series, which premiered on Halloween this year, is a British-Canadian production in a similar vein to classic spooky shows such as Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories and The Twilight Zone. Each week begins with an appearance from “The Curious”, a mysterious whistling story collector. With his face always concealed by a featureless cardboard mask, you know you’re in trouble if he turns up on your street.
The soundtrack to the series was composed by Joe Kraemer, the man behind the music on Hollywood blockbuster movies such as Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Jack Reacher. David’s whistling can be heard throughout the six-part series, bringing a sinister air to the already spooky goings on.
If you missed out when the series originally aired, you can catch up on the BBC’s iPlayer. If you find yourself gripped with fear but unable to look away then fear not, there are more episodes to come at the beginning of 2018.
