Actually, Tim Skedge WAS Kennedy ... (a) the character died, and (b) the play has finished now - stop trying to relive it by constantly coming back to this website! Hang on, what are we saying!?!?!?! please keep coming back to this website - we have loads of pics and stories yet to tell, and besides, we like you popping in to see us! We all enjoyed doing the play which was an amazing opportunity for us all.

A sly look at the camera from Nick in this dress rehearsal photo taken whilst the performance was halted to allow for the explosive charges to be set. A chance also to see Nick's choice of costume - "if Chris Eccleston showed that the Doctor's costume could be ordinary and not extravagant then I could try the same approach"

 

It's just a trick of the light - or did we really try out pink as a colour scheme?

The Emperor and Dalek Supreme after the show. In a great photo from Stephen Cranford we see the necessary detail on the gold dalek - ie the 2 screws on the eye - we needed that to quickly replace the blue light if we had a problem. Ashley had a spare blue light assembly on standby. The photo just shows how the colours can change due to effective stage lighting - ie you can't see the gold on the dalek in the foreground whilst the chap behind shows every chance of being cast in pure gold. Well, plywood.

 

This is when the nest of spiders in the gold dalek actually hatched...much to the surprise of the operator!

Firstly here's two silver daleks with skirt balls painted but the near one needs slats and mesh...In fact this near one ended up as a black dalek emperor guard - ie had a dark green dome. You can tell as the middle had a little stub at the front of the lower middle shoulder band (the silver ones had no such stub - and of course the supreme gold dalek had an enlarged stub the reflect the shield double slat).

the two silver daleks take shape...

well, they performed ok didn't they! One or two little hiccups but then we were expecting something.

the design changes

As for the design of the daleks, Ashley, Nick and Rob felt that we needed to make changes to reflect the 3 main influences for this play.

If any of you want a hi-res (5 megapixel) version of the "me with a dalek" picture in this section then please contact us via the "say hello" part of the site and say what the picture filename is - it is usually of the form evilmewith9999.jpg where 9999 represents the particular picture number. We'd be happy to send you the image via email.

Loads of images from both on stage and behind the scenes - coming soon!

We will explain the vital role that Jonathan - pictured here in the bar - played each night. Can you guess?????

Well, you guessed it - he was THE EMPEROR !!!!!

A totally thankless task. He saw absolutely nothing, but made the prop truly come alive. Well done!

On the left menu and below you'll see a menu (when we've finished adding the images) which will be a link for one page per photo.
