Now that Christopher Eccleston has joined and will soon be leaving the rank of 'current Dr Who' we'd just like to confirm rumours that Tony Garner, our 'interim Dr Who' has in fact not been asked to feature in the new series as the Tenth Doctor. If he had an agent he would have also confirmed this. This totally expected announcement comes as the world of Dr Who fandom is in turmoil over who should accept the role and become the next tennant of this coveted part.
Now where have we heard that headline before? Back in 1996 when Devious had just filmed the Jon Pertwee scene in fact! 1996 - a false start for the television series in a way, and a shame, as Paul McGann was an excellent choice as Doctor, and to see him handover the role today to Christopher Eccleston would have been a treat. Still, that's one for the flashback perhaps. Time to look ahead now. Time for a new start. Time for the return of a series that will doubtless encourage more efforts like Devious from others out there perhaps.
See the Filming - March 2005 section for some more images from our 'FINAL' filming session. We say 'FINAL' rather than FINAL as you never know - we may have to redo a bit with a better location assuming we feel suitably motivated! The website editor received a set of images from Stephen's digital camera just yesterday, and these pics have been rushed to the site!
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...
