Just found a few photos when downloading from the digital camera and thought the website should have these! These were taken this January and February and concern the dalek which you may recall was last seen in silver and white. It had been one of the black and silver models as per the Dalek Masterplan play in 2007. It had been decided to make it the first one to return to the Devious colours, and so an undercoat of white was used to cover the black matt on the base and the middle shoulder section.
news and news archive from the production
Hi there everyone - sorry for the lack of news - we've been busy, although not necessarily on things you want to read about here! Ashley is leaving his employment now and is on the lookout for programming jobs, so if you know of anything in the php/mysql line then feel free to drop him a line! Seriously though, in looking at the website we've just realised that the "say hello" section had gone down due to the system being upgraded but no-one actually chjecking if it affected that page! Well done.
Hello again! - sorry for the lack of news lately - we've all had things on - our lives in fact! As you know Devious is a spare time thing so there are often times when we don't seem to do much. Actually we've been very active - it's just that the website hasn't been updated! And that's enough exclamation marks for this month! (Unless you want to describe the Third Season of BBC's Doctor Who just ended, and then you'll need loads!!!!!)
Who'd have thought it? Just seen 'Evolution of the Daleks' and there we saw daleks on stage. Blimey! What a concept! Anyway here's another great big hooray for a great episode. We won't say much more here at the moment as it's only just finished and our US cousins (thanks for emailing us!) won't have seen it yet. Which means our next article for the news page 'synchronicity' will have to be carefully written so as not to give anything away for followers of the BBC series.
Blimey - can't wait until next week! It's all going to kick off in the BBC's second part of the Daleks in Manhattan story. We'll say no more in case you haven't seen the episode yet - ie if you are from the States (let us know please!) and have to wait ages to see the Daleks in New York.Great story - well done Helen Raynor!
Hi there - thought we ought to put the poster for the Masterplan play on this site at last! Also this Easter Ashley's been playing round with dalek colours and has taken the green off from one of the Devious-Evil-Masterplan daleks. The colour scheme he has chosen is a temporary one as this dalek will hopefully go into a shop window soon - replacing the gold one from Evil as this one needs conversion work for the play! Picture soon! Oh yes, and as you may have realised from last year's poster the final dalek colour scheme isn't shown in the design!
if we haven't already said this then we'd like to mention that we're delighted to say that Martin Johnson has agreed to do the musical soundtrack for Devious. He wrote the fantastic score for the recent Evil of the Daleks stageplay in Portsmouth 2006 and is writing the score for the upcoming 'The Dalek Masterplan' (tickets now available!). We would mention though that we have insisted his Masterplan work comes first!!!!
Just to let you know that the team down in Portsmouth have just had their first read-through and meeting. Ashley from Devious popped along and took a few photos and has added a few words elsewhere in this site. As we did with Evil of the Daleks, we will be following the progress of this project closely through the year, as again we are providing some props and helping out where necessary. We would like to wish them well for this production.
