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!!!!!)
news and news archive from the production
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.
Regeneration of the Daleks?
Merry Christmas to all our readers! (or is it 'browsers'?) Anyway, many felicitous greetings to you at this time of year - whatever your religion. If you don't normally celebrate at this time of year because of your faith then please store this message up until the time that you do. And if you're not religious (like the person typing this) then please have a beer and celebrate something. And if you don't drink, then.... oh my god this is getting complicated. And did I say 'god'? Look, just go and watch Doctor Who or something with Nigella in on the telly... Cheers and see you soon!
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.
