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.
A few words as promised a month or two ago from Stephen Cranford regarding the JNT archive. He gives us a footnote to the article in this month's Doctor Who Magazine which talks of how this important collection was saved for future fandom by the efforts of JNT, Gary Downie and then Stephen.
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!
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.
