the dalek emperor

Well it's no secret now that we have the dalek emperor in the story - but what does it look like?

Well when we filmed the main dalek control room a year or so back half the time was spent with the central control area with two dalek brain units hovered over it, and the last session was spent with the Emperor prop in place.

 

Due to restricted ceiling height and the fact that loads of special effects were to be added we only needed to use the lowest 7 feet height of the emperor.

Elizabethan costume

This was designed and made by an Oscar-Winning Costume Maker !!!

Yes, Ashley's sister Rachel is part of a team of costume makers who work on many of the latest films. The Oscar was won by the team for "Restoration" a few years back, although Rachel is working on items for films yet to come out. A list of her credits will follow!!

tardis console

Our full-sized TARDIS console was built in 1995 to replace our original which had fallen apart and perished - but then it was only small - a foot or so across in size in fact.

 

This model, along with our cardboard walls (with photocopied roundels) was how we were going to realise the TARDIS scenes. The shot below is not focussed right but gives the idea. The plan involved filming with enough light to ensure the right depth of field as the model console was kept near the camera.

the crew behind the scenes

the crew behind the scenes

Loads of people have been involved in Devious over the years, and we hope they can all get the mention they deserve as soon as this part of the site is filled out. However until that time, and we want to make the pages illustrative and entertaining without just providing lists of names, which are meaningless to the layman or casual observer, we will endeavour to add suitable content to show how an amateur fan-based movie goes about its business!

devious people

We've always said Devious is a big family. Have we? Oh well, we've certainly had members of our families 'co-operated' into helping out now and again. We've even bred new dalek operators! Since we started the trio of Stephen Ashley and David (SAD!) have had partners and children. This new 'people' section of the site will attempt to put the human side to this Devious group and attempt to show ou we are all normal - really! Without going into our personal lives of course, but we will try to add the 'human factor' to this site.

Jon Pertwee

With the release of the War Games DVD Devious Clip featuring great cameos from Jon Pertwee, Hugh Lloyd and Peter Tuddenham you can finally see the results from our day with Jon Pertwee.

direction

The Director is most definitely David from the trio. Mr D V C himself (see links page!) After some discussion with the trio, David draws out the storyboards and a shooting schedule, and on the day of filming makes things work to plan. Well almost. A difficult job - there've been occasional mistakes and forgotten shots, or time has pressured us, but then these things affect all directors and David has always kept things rolling along.

Nilan / Uist

Richard Kingshott joined us on a number of occasions both on location and in our 'studio' (ie Stephen's house) for Tardis scenes. As one of the TimeLord Observers he had to play two characters - not only Nilan (and we can't recall why he had that name!) but Uist the Villager in the 'Archers' scene. Poor Richard was decked out in material from an old sofa (yes really) to make a rough tribal costume and was required to trek down to the quarry for a great day of filming with Tony and others.
