In a long line of excuses for the lack of progress in the modelwork department, Ashley has now said that his recent construction of a bookcase and matching radiator cover for a room in his palatial abode is the main reason why the dalek models are late in delivery! Not believing him we asked for proof, and here is the offending bookcase - built from scratch at a cost of around three hundred quid.
... is still continuing - reaching a climax in fact. The Two and a Halfth Doctor is still around (having escaped the multi-Doctor mind meld that's currently happening, and then there;s the....) go and see if you haven't already! We've been following this for ages as it is truly inspired and with excellent characterisation and dialogue. And of course they have Doctor Two and a Half who looks mighty familiar!
... to any one who has arrived here for the first time - perhaps as a result of reading about us in a magazine?!?!? Yes - we've been featured�again in a small piece in another sci-fi magazine it seems. It's SFX Magazine and we're very thankful for the publicity. Hopefully it shows how some Doctor Who fans out there in the wide world just can't get enough watching Doctor Who and try to make their own! Not a patch on the original of course, and just done for the fun of it. Well it keeps us off the streets!
Just sorting through a few things and found these pics from November (08!) in which you can see the new back-filler models being built by Ashley. He's managed to find a few battered Sevans kits and although he will be refurbishing them he feels it's more in the spirit of Devious to create from scratch. So you can see the new shoulder section castings. These were cast from a new build of a shoulder section using silicon moulds and then cast in resin some with a glass fibre tissue mat and some with glass fibre traditional strands.
Well, another year gone. Next year will be fun. We promise! Ashley's got a great set of tools for his modelworking for Christmas we overhear, and the editing is nearly done. We're also apparentlyup for being in another magazine it seems, albeit just a column. So we'll dig out some unseen images for that. Thanks for everyone who emailed us about the Starburst piece.
And there's more.... (but you'll have to wait). We'll say no more for now.
Avid readers (such as us) of the Gallifrey One website would have been delighted to read that the play has been nominated for some awards! More details at the GallifreyOne site news section, and there are links also to an excellent blog...
It was with sadness that the Devious team learnt about the death of legend and cameo cast member Hugh Lloyd, who died on the 14th July 2008.
Hugh and his wife Shan had been long term friends of (Devious team member) Stephen, having been introduced via JNT in the early 90's. As well as being regular attendees to social functions at Cranford Towers, we were delighted when Hugh agreed to appear alongside Peter Tuddenham to play one of the Timelords in the dramatic finale to Devious. Stephen recalls the filming of that sequence....
