The TARDIS, console and two daleks were again called into action by BBC South in July2013 in the week before filming for The Never Was. In fact at the time we only had the front half of the TARDIS as it was a new build from the measurements of our original which had been pensioned off. The new demi-TARDIS was only the front as that was all we needed for the Brighton Modelworld Show in 2013 and for the Never Was filming later in the year. It is now complete and decorated for the moment as a Capaldi-era box despite being of 1980's measurements
This is also noted in the news section for 2005 - however for completeness we are including this little bit here! In 2005 in time to coincide with the Ninth Doctor episode "Dalek" our local TV station decided to feature Devious in a short segment. Some of the people at BBC South had hoped to put together a longer piece about Devious - or something featuring fan films we think (we're not sure what they were planning and heard many rumours). To that effect they sent down a film unit with an interviewer of none other than Sylvester McCoy.
We were contacted again by BBC South regarding borrowing some of our props and sets again in 2004. This was for a series of features - one per night over a week of the magazine show South Today at 6.30pm. BBC South covers an area bordering Brighton/Worthing in the east across to Weymouth and Dorset in the west and Oxford in the north.
Years ago a friend of Tony painted the above. We only managed a quick snap before Tony's security systems kicked in and we were forced to run from the hounds across miles of open fields dodging the snipers from the helicopter...
We also had some hand painted Tshirts at some point although we have all outgrown them. However they are still in storage...
Tony Garner's incarnation of The Doctor appears during the comic story The Ten Doctors. He appears in many pages and fits in superbly with the action. You need to go to the start to appreciate this masterpiece so we will not give you the page number Tony's incarnation first appears on - let it be a surprise!
Here's some art from Marcia - a poster for Devious
Very prolific Marcia Wilson from the USA has sent us a number of cartoon drawings based on the characters of Devious and it's prequel-sequel-spinoff The Never Was. We present some of her excellent work here...
We were honoured to be part of the organising committee for Strange New Worlds 1 - a one-day convention in Worthing in 2010. I went very well with nearly two thousand people through the doors of St Pauls in Worthing. On this page we will try to give a flavour of the event.
We are proud to continue our association wih local Sussex schools. We have to credit Rowlie Darby of Patcham High with starting all this off we think. We knew him around the time we filmed the big dalek scenes in Hove for our later episodes. He appeared as one of the daleks in 2004 and in fact later went with a troup of youngsters - and James Precious - to see the first Portsmouth play "The Evil of the Daleks" in 2006.
We were asked to supply the TARDIS for a BBC show featuring Alan Titchmarsh. Great we thought, we'll pop it round. Actually it was at Goonhilly Radio Telescope installation in deepest south Cornwall - and so the Beeb collected it themselves!
It's all a bit distant now time-wise - however we think it was for a collectopr's show covering antiques and collectibles. We didn't go down ourselves but we asked for someone to take a few pics, and we include a few here. One day we'll trawl youtube and see if there is any trace of the programme!
