Covellitor / Villager

When not in an (unflattering / fetching - delete as appropriate) wig and tartan playing a Village Leader and warrior, Stephen Cranford plays the Time Lord official 'The Covellitor'

Charged with ensuring the test goes to plan, he becomes increasingly nervous about the turn of events. Finally, as the pilot of the second Tardis, he is forced to take evasive manoeuvres to try to keep the team alive after they are attacked by the twisted character Auriga.


Aquilia the Observer

Heather Miller (nee Cohen) plays Aquilia the Observer. Sent by the TimeLords to watch the progress of the Doctor's test. Watching from afar using binoculars she herself realises she is being watched. Stalked by something rather unpleasant in fact.



Another place name (like Imberhorne, Uist etc) is used for this character. A member of the village resistance in the Imberhorne scene we do not know whether he is a TimeLord playing a role for the Doctor's memory, or merely a fiction?


Phillip / Callisto

Phillip and Callisto are played by Anthony Townsend, now of London.

Another experienced amateur actor he joined the team for a short while (that's a few years in our book!) and still keeps in contact with us.

His character's name is in fact Phillip Royale on account he used to work at the Theatre Royal in Brighton! Here he is unimpressed observing the interplay between the Doctor and Bradley!




Ian Edmond has now forgiven us (we think) for his character's name. "Ralib" is an anagram of "Blair" That's where the similarity ends! We first met Ian as a result of him standing at a bus-stop in Brighton wearing a dalek t-shirt (that's Ian, not the bus-stop) and Ashley's usual brand of cheek meant he had to strike up a conversation with this hitherto stranger. Ian now works at DVC run by David from the team, and is in charge of things technical in the world on video-editing on PCs.


Amber / Adreinna

Amber Lyn and Adreinna are played by Lynette East. She is still on speaking terms with the rest of us despite the indignities and strange costumes she has had to put up with over the years! "Amber Lyn" the name is a deliberate variation on Anne Boleyn - episode one shows why...



newly discovered images

To coincide with the news about the award nominations, and to start some sort of retrospective on the production here's a few new images for you to peruse...

Masterplan Success

Thanks again to everyone from Ashley!!!! He was honoured to have worked with such a professional bunch of people. Now recovering his senses and getting some much-needed sleep he will be adding much content to this part of the site in the near future. The "me-with-a-dalek" section will be done first to allow those people who wanted their picture taken and put onto the site to be completed. The we will follow with many features regarding our (Devious) involvement with the play as well as providing a comprehensive record of events albeit from one perspective.




Masterplan 2nd night !

Well we think so. Great reactions from the audience and things are gelling together as planned. A few minor glitches on the opening night yesterday but this correspondant (Ashley) is talking from the dalek perspective. Something which didn't work in rehearsal (i.e. he wasn't confident it would work) was pulled from the first night but worked fine tonight. Only a little thing (ooh err) but nevertheless an interesting moment. One which Ashley spent a couple of hours out the back of the theatre today slaving over a deactivated dalek trying to get right!


and so it begins again...

Dress Rehearsal went well. Daleks need a few tweaks here and there. Nervousness apprehension and excitement are the order of the day - preparedness is the key and so we hope it will be all right on the night! Tonight's picture is a view of some of the cast and crew receiving notes from Dave Tozer regarding the evening's order. Stage to be cleared, preparations to be made and on with the rehearsal.
