Martin Johnson is writing the score for Devious. We are attempting to get the edits ready with temporary tracks in place so he will have something to work from. As you may know, Martin wrote the score for the very successful Evil of the Daleks stageplay and is currently writing the score for the follow up play The Dalek Masterplan (tickets now available!).
We were lucky enough to record a short cameo with Anneke Wills a few years ago. One of the First Doctor's companions she is enjoying a varied career, not just in acting and writing - her paintings are well worth a look.
Here she is with the Interim Doctor escaping some rather well-known foes...
Devious would also like to thank Andy Shaw for the realisation of this short scene...
The Doctor travels in his trusty Tardis with three companions in this tale; Bradley, Phillip and Amber. Bradley takes the lead in the early part of the story as we see the Doctor struggling with his confused memories. Phillip seems more understanding, and gradually we see why the third companion Amber is no longer travelling with them.
The Tardis crew react to the events around them - or do they?
Tony Garner plays the "Two and a halfth Doctor". His resemblance to both Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee is something of a bonus, and certainly one of the reasons the story was written as it was. If you can't see the resemblance then wait until you see the regeneration scenes..!!!
Tony is an "amateur-dramatics" actor - he has appeared in many productions by the Saltdean Amateur Dramatic Society near Brighton, Sussex.
Hugh Lloyd (MBE) played the part of the Scribe - a Timelord official.
The Scribe is a quiet man, and only speaks when he is spoken to. Wielding the Quill he holds immense power, and in conjunction with the Voix he meets the Doctor at an opportune moment!
The Doctor's assistant Bradley is played by one of the writers; David Clarke. As with Tony Garner he's a keen amateur actor, having been in many local productions in the Hove area over the years.
Not all is what it seems however with Bradley. He and Phillip may not be who we think they are...
Here he is with the Doctor, exploring the dome
Peter Tuddenham played half of the Timelord double act from episode six - Voix
Voix is the voice - appropriate, since Peter is essentially a voice artist. Heard in many classic BBC Doctor Who stories he is better known for his portrayal of Orac and Zen in Blake's 7.
Whilst we were working with him he regaled us with tales of working at Glyndebourne as a voice coach for a new opera where the cast were required to sing in a Suffolk accent of all things!
The part of an itinerant villager seen briefly in the Imberhorne scene is played by Arthur Harrod, another long time Dr Who fan and early leader of the BADWAS (Brighton Area Dr Who Appreciation Society). Like Stephen he was subjected to the indignity of wearing an awful wig for this brief role - hence his nickname "Wiggy" (that scene only).
Chaldar the Time Lord politician / official is a stuffy argumentative pompous individual, and meets his just desserts during the latter parts of the film. As one of Callisto's benefactors he is forced to play another character for the Doctor's memories, and so turns up as the argumentative pompous Village leader Imberhorne.
Both are played with stuffy pomposity by the stuffy pompous (very) amateur actor, co-writer, set-builder Ashley.
