(update - 18 June) Well, the bubble is about to burst! After all the years of Devious being something people knew about but never actually saw anything of - the 6th of July will see a segment released for the general DW fandom to finally see. And for the DWM to post a paragraph or so in their customary review of new DVD releases in their next isse, due out next week (25th). Maybe we are nervous. So what if the DWM reviewer doesn't like it? It's just an opinion of course as the piece of Devious will be on a "proper" DVD alongside professional pieces of work.
news and news archive from the production
Well, it's by no means definite, and we're nervous about saying too much, but... we may appear on a local news magaziine programme for the BBC South East area on the 7th of July - the day after the War Games release. The programme isusually on at 6.30pm after the main news.
This will be the day after the actual DVD release. Now Stephen from the team works for BBC Sussex radio and features in their breakfast show from 6 to 10am and so we'd be very surprised if Devious didn't get some kind of mention on the Monday - so listen out just in case!
Well, the webmaster for this site is on holiday this week so updates may be a little sparse. HOWEVER he has had the sense - or stupidity - to get his copy of War Games delivered to his holiday home and so has watched the special devious scene last night (play.com delivered early!!). And he's discovered wi-fi here, so at least the site will have a couple of updates during the week! Actually it has just been pointed out to him that it was not "he" who found out about about the wi-fi, so thanks are due to another vital member of the team!
UPDATE - see it here on the BBC site.. link - will only work for 24 hours and prob only UK
TWENTY YEARS!!???!! (as per TV clip intro!!!) never!!! - we started in around 1992/3 - still that's a long time!
Hi there followers! On the day that the first new image of the Eleventh Doctor in costume is released, by coincidence Ashley has rummaged through a few files and found a few images some of which may be new to this site. He was looking for some shots associated with the footage used on the War Games DVD. As those who have seen it will know there is a montage of clips to illustrate the Interim Doctor's brief tenure before he meets Scribe, Voix and his Future.
First up is a screen grab of Amber Lyn's second Elizabethan costume for an as yet unused scene...
One of our troop - Arthur - who played both Aturo and the infamous "Wiggy" in Devious has just presented us with some newly discovered photos from his archive.
Well I've just got back half an hour ago from the first showing of Devious for years. Not since we put the clips together for the War Games DVD a year ago have we watched any. And in celebration of the release we gave ourselves a deadline to get the existing footage together and watch it. This meant refining the edit, adding credits, adding music guides, adding some new effects adding sounds etc until the whole thing could be watched in an evening - all of this David achieved magnificently. Thanks David.
We thought as we have so many images of our fleet of daleks they really ought to have their own section on the website. That's not to denigrate any of the other props and sets we've used over the years of course - it's just that they tend to get most attention! In fact we'll put up a section soon called TARDIS as we do have quite a few things we can share on our Tardis props too.
We've got the first photo of Alex's new dalek from the 1st of August Worthing Doctor Who event. It has a Devious connection which we thought would be of interest!
Arthur has just sent us another new image here in the images section - see The Doctor and his Twig
