Not a very exciting news item really, but just to say we have been progressing well on the sound for episode one, with Mark wading through the endless countryside, plane and main road noises - and removing them. It's amazing to hear the difference. He is also ensuring we have a good background noise which covers any blips and clicks etc. This isn't something like a background noise of a planet as per Star Trek (classic) or the noise in Destiny of the Daleks, but a very subtle blanket of sound. 

Just a quick note to reassure you we are still meeting regularly - the new team being a bit more of a MAD grouping perhaps than a SAD one. However the M in the MAD (Mark) assures us he is not a replacement for Stephen, just someone to help us along with the project at the moment. Stephen is immensely busy appearing on radio and television unlike the rest of us in that respect ! 


We had decided when we were setting up the Pertwee evening - which was arranged a month before due to the difficulty of getting us all together - to try to get Anthony in to do his ADR.

Well, we finally got together to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of "The Pertwee Day" as we still call it. Sadly Ian and Arthur couldn't make it on the night and they were missed, but then life gets in the way as always (that's why we've been at this Devious malarkey for so long).

Oh how the years have been kind / unkind (delete as appropriate).

In a few weeks there will be a select gathering at one of our houses to commemorate 20years since we filmed "that scene" with Jon Pertwee. Something at the time that seemed amazing to us, something we hadn't ever dreamt could happen. Still, it did, due to a chain of interconnecting events we hadn't expected when we started Devious all those years ago.

So, we will reassemble at Stephen's new house and raise a glass to the memory of a great day. 

Last minute stuff now in progress for the annual display of Devious props and sets etc. This year the display is slightly different with a notable addition. Hope to see some of you there. The Brighton Modelworld show is on from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd 10am until 5ish at the Brighton centre on the seafront. Great venue, great fun.

And to celebrate we've started a new section on the site called DALEKWORLD. Also please note we have had to combine the stage plays into one menu item for now until the new web design comes on stream. "Bear with".

Yes, you read that correctly. We've finally released something! Well, strictly its the slightly different team at The Never Was rather than Devious per se. Not that there's a lot of difference in the teams!!! Anyway, get yourselves over to to catch the new video, and maybe you'll spot some Devious connections...

... starts NOW. Yep, finally! Here's what we said today on the Never Was site for the start of the countdown...

Hi there everyone who pops along here from time to time. Just to say that we're doing the final stuff for The Never Was now, and soon we'll start our countdown for that which we will mirror on the Devious website too as we are ever so linked!

A little reassurance for you...
We'll have a series of tongue-in-cheek articles as a countdown to the launch of The Never Was...
