Ooh err! Seriously though, we thought it best to end our crazy 'guess our guests' competition as we had such a flood of entries. One of you half got it right, and so to put you out of your misery we can reveal that last weekend we had the pleasure to work with Peter Tuddenham and Hugh Lloyd! In the next few weeks we shall add content to the 'filming' section so you can see some shots from the weekend. At present we're just putting a few stills taken during the filming, and the setup day the day before.

Blimey it's tiring! We've been running the stand for 2 days now with just tomorrow to go.
Come along we'd love to see you! We've got eight daleks at the stand plus models, school project makes and some special guests popping along on occasions!
We'll have loads of photos from the show on this site later in the week for those of you who couldn't make it!
It's all started at last! A week or two ago Ashley popped down and met everyone for the first read-through of Dalek Masterplan. This actually took place on the stage of the Theatre Royal Portsmouth and was great fun. A few photos were taken and here's a couple for you to take a gander at. The eagle eyed amongst you will spot the Doctor Nick Scovell and near him were seated Rob and the dalekmeister Nick Briggs.
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! It will be interesting to see how the footage eventually turns out from these scenes of the Covellitor planting a bomb, since the images shown here currently show everything in bright colour with no 'mood' added.
Interesting this spoiler alert business... We were worried about saying about our plot similarities to the new Dr Who series and talking about the Emperor being in it etc. Well we're only making these comments based on what we've seen on television and read in comments by RTD in DWM - so in effect we know nothing! Zilch. The end result of all this is that in the excitement about the new series finale we've let slip some of our ending too!!!
Hi there - sorry we haven't got further with images from our appearance on South Today - or even any video footage. We've made our own mpg file of the interview but we can't put it on this site until we get permission from the BBC and we haven't asked yet so bear with us! Anyway, watch out for the Devious TARDIS as it's soon to appear on the telly nationwide !!!
Hi there - we're getting unconfirmed hazy sketchy rumours of an appearance by some elements from Devious in a forthcoming edition of BBC South's South Today - more news as and when. You may recall some of our props appeared last summer in a Doctor Who in the South set of features...When we know some more we'll let you know.
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.
