I confess, I was hesitant about doing a second “Eddie Van Helsing” story after last year, because I was worried the concept would get old. Despite this, I started tossing out various ideas, and “Spiders from Mars” came up, though I confessed at the time I hadn’t thought far past that. Then I mentioned it to my supervisor Ethan and he came back with this:
“Wasn’t David Bowie born David Jones? What if Davy Jones from the Monkees wanted to switch careers with him?”
The rest of it wrote itself from there.
