DalekWorld at Modelworld 2011

Well, we're into the last minute preparations now and it all seems to be coming together! We have a main exhibit plus a number of daleks to show you.

We have some small daleks and some new very creative daleks for you to see!

It's going to be a mad Thursday for us as we get everything into the hall and assembled.

We hope you will enjoy it - come along and say hello and let us know if you follow us on the website!

For those of you who want to buy things, our friends at Type 40 Toys have their own stand not far from our exhibition area...

Comic Relief retrospective

Let's hope you all donated to the cause earlier thus month! As the BBC are showing the Comic Relief sketch from 1999 with an "embed" function we thought we'd add it to this site until such time as it is withdrawn. We were lucky to have helped with this sketch - the console and 3 daleks - we'll have a dig around in our archive and see what else we have for you to see!

the sketch is here in our Curse of Fatal Death section.

Power of the Daleks set visit and Strange New Worlds 2011

Blimey - just checked this site and realised we haven't put an update on for ages! Sorry about that - didn't mean to! We're still alive, although not much we can report at the moment. We've done some more dialogue recording - mainly David's role of Auriga. We'll be doing some more with Tony and completing his stuff quite soon, and then we are goiung to ask our other cast members to pop down and do their dubbing.

Feb 2012 and server changes

Well, we're thinking of changing servers so you may notice the site will be a bit unresponsive for a short while while we make the move. Ashley is also thinking of changing the back-end system behind the website so it may suddenly morph into a new look when you are least expecting it!

So please bear with us! Well, we know you're a patient lot, bearing with us over the XX years since we started this effort!

Work progresses!

Well we're still at it. After Stephen, David and Ashley had seen Nigel Fairs' latest play in Brighton a couple of weeks ago (starring Nigel and Louise Jameson) they received some useful encouragement from "friend of Devious" Mark. Anyone who talks to us is obviously a "friend of Devious" - or maybe he is one of Stephen's mates! Anyway something must have struck home during the evening as the three have met again a couple of times since and worked on some effects.

section: 

Masterplan - the show is on!

News items will necessarily be dominated by Devious' involvement in the Dalek Masterplan play in Portsmouth England! (Earth, Solar System etc) The dress rehearsal was the 23rd and the SELLOUT play is from the 24th to the 27th of October. We do have some news-y things for Devious to impart but they can wait until the fuss and excitement of Masterplan dies down a little - and there's not much chance of that, for sure!

section: 

Final prop builds

It's got to the scary stage now! Ashley is rushing round like a blue-*****-fly trying to get the last bits of prop completed for the play. With collection of more daleks and bits etc next weekend there's only one more weekend to go, so naturally he's hoping for good weather - he hates working indoors. OK so it's not a major news item in itself but as we said before there's not a lot we can show at this stage. After the play has started the final setbuild and rehearsal stage he'll see if he can sneak some photos out for the website.

section: 

December will be magic...

(isn't that a Kate Bush track?)

...well it will be magic if Ashley manages to get the new version of this website live at last! He's been promising it for weeks, and still has to put live the images from the recent Masterplan play. Well, he has a lot on - like we all do in Devious, which is why the news often takes a back seat! In fact the whole project is, as you know, a hobby project and necessarily sits behind our normal activities.

To atone for this delay here's a few new images(above)  to show we have been (slightly) active!
