Hi everyone! Well, to help the new site along we've finally managed to locate our documentary footage from back in April 1995 when Jon Pertwee came down to Worthing to film with us on Devious. Unfortunately the documentary footage was shot on VHS - this being 1995 and we needed our other two cameras for the main filming!
In looking around the various files we've re-located Arthur's photos from our first filming day back in the 1990s. We started the Devious project by filming a scene at Devil's Dyke near Brighton. With 30 extras from local re-enactment group "SCUM" - Barry and Karl led our first day filming. A successful day and memorable for us - the day it all started.
The new gallery is on the home page of the PICS section - you can get there here.
... to any one who has arrived here for the first time - perhaps as a result of reading about us in a magazine?!?!? Yes - we've been featured�again in a small piece in another sci-fi magazine it seems. It's SFX Magazine and we're very thankful for the publicity. Hopefully it shows how some Doctor Who fans out there in the wide world just can't get enough watching Doctor Who and try to make their own! Not a patch on the original of course, and just done for the fun of it. Well it keeps us off the streets!
Just got this shot through from Neil Jones - brother of Mark - taken at the recent premiere of Griffin. A great piece of work, very animated and a great character. Let's hope for the best for this creation and hope we'll see a lot more of him and his creator Mark. Photo shows Mark (right) with Griffin and Ashley...
Thanks to Jed who emailed us regarding the film Griffin - the world premiere of which is Sunday 23rd January 2005 at the Dome in Worthing West Sussex. He asked us whether we knew anything about it? Well, yes, Griffin is a Mark Jones film and features many people who have been connected with Devious over the years! Go to their site for more details - it's at www.griffinthemovie.com
Friend of Devious Gary Merchant has sent us this fine example of his work. He has been making alternative video/dvd covers for sci-fi stories for years and is a great fan of Dr Who (he can be seen on our welcome page greeting Tony at a convention).
Some time ago he did us a great cover for our piece, and has just sent us another one, drawn up without full knowledge of our story (not that we know it!!) and without hi-res bespoke artwork - i.e. compiled entirely from what he's een on the website over the years.
Our spies tell us that there have been more shameful cases of the use child labour by the Devious team. Youngsters as young as seven or eight have been witnessed helping out with the recent filming. These recently discovered photographs expose the whole thing in a shameful manner worthy of the daleks' own mines on Skaro or the working conditions on Exxilon. Here we see Ian Watts entombing his own daughter within a dalek casing...
