Our Doctor poses with the stick
design + implementation
As this article is being written England are winning/losing against Italy in the Euros 2012 - no idea - the stress of watching penalties has led this correspondant to exit stage left and write some content for the website. After all we all know if England don't go out on penalties now, then it'll just happen in the next match.
Were England playing in the Euros when we started Devious? Was Yugoslavia still a country? The USSR or East Germany?
Or the Austro-Hungarian Empire? Yes it does seem rather a while.
... 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!
Well, we couldn't revamp the site and leave out our favourite bit! This is where you can drop us a line and say hello and tell us about Devious, or Doctor Who in general, or the price of fish or whatever. We will report on the best on the site - and may well extend this feature in a social-media sort of way!
Stephen and David from the "Devious Project" are interviewed on BBC's South East Today to coincide with the release on BBC DVD of "The War Games" -- a Patrick Troughton Doctor Who story. This DVD includes as an extra some footage from Devious and a scene featuring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor.
Devious the movie features three Tardises.
The Doctor's own Tardis isn't seen until episode two - we see him land on a seemingly deserted beach in order to watch a secret funeral ceremony out at sea. His beach vantage point gives him a great view of the princess's glass galleon as it disolves into a myriad rainbow colours. This is one of the seven hundred wonders of the galaxy according to Phillip.
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
Good luck to Mark and the team for the premiere - sorry we didn't get news on this site beforehand! Break a leg!
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.
