Let's hope you all donated to the cause earlier thus month! As the BBC are showing the Comic Relief sketch from 1999 with an "embed" function we thought we'd add it to this site until such time as it is withdrawn. We were lucky to have helped with this sketch - the console and 3 daleks - we'll have a dig around in our archive and see what else we have for you to see!
news and news archive from the production
Blimey - just checked this site and realised we haven't put an update on for ages! Sorry about that - didn't mean to! We're still alive, although not much we can report at the moment. We've done some more dialogue recording - mainly David's role of Auriga. We'll be doing some more with Tony and completing his stuff quite soon, and then we are goiung to ask our other cast members to pop down and do their dubbing.
Well, we're thinking of changing servers so you may notice the site will be a bit unresponsive for a short while while we make the move. Ashley is also thinking of changing the back-end system behind the website so it may suddenly morph into a new look when you are least expecting it!
So please bear with us! Well, we know you're a patient lot, bearing with us over the XX years since we started this effort!
Well actually, since we are paid up until 2013 on our existing server we are staying where we are! Mind you, a new version of the site is in development and you should see that soon!
Sorry for the lack of updates - have been merrily building stuff to get Devious finished! Well, that's the hope. I (Ashley) have just got back from the Brighton Centre where we have been setting up our exhibit for this year. And we're bigger than ever! 5 of your french metres by 6 of them! That's, err, many yards wide by a demi-furlong deep. Or something like that.
Well we're still at it. After Stephen, David and Ashley had seen Nigel Fairs' latest play in Brighton a couple of weeks ago (starring Nigel and Louise Jameson) they received some useful encouragement from "friend of Devious" Mark. Anyone who talks to us is obviously a "friend of Devious" - or maybe he is one of Stephen's mates! Anyway something must have struck home during the evening as the three have met again a couple of times since and worked on some effects.
News items will necessarily be dominated by Devious' involvement in the Dalek Masterplan play in Portsmouth England! (Earth, Solar System etc) The dress rehearsal was the 23rd and the SELLOUT play is from the 24th to the 27th of October. We do have some news-y things for Devious to impart but they can wait until the fuss and excitement of Masterplan dies down a little - and there's not much chance of that, for sure!
It's got to the scary stage now! Ashley is rushing round like a blue-*****-fly trying to get the last bits of prop completed for the play. With collection of more daleks and bits etc next weekend there's only one more weekend to go, so naturally he's hoping for good weather - he hates working indoors. OK so it's not a major news item in itself but as we said before there's not a lot we can show at this stage. After the play has started the final setbuild and rehearsal stage he'll see if he can sneak some photos out for the website.
(isn't that a Kate Bush track?)
...well it will be magic if Ashley manages to get the new version of this website live at last! He's been promising it for weeks, and still has to put live the images from the recent Masterplan play. Well, he has a lot on - like we all do in Devious, which is why the news often takes a back seat! In fact the whole project is, as you know, a hobby project and necessarily sits behind our normal activities.
To atone for this delay here's a few new images(above) to show we have been (slightly) active!
Modelwork is progressing!
