We had decided when we were setting up the Pertwee evening - which was arranged a month before due to the difficulty of getting us all together - to try to get Anthony in to do his ADR.

Well, we finally got together to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of "The Pertwee Day" as we still call it. Sadly Ian and Arthur couldn't make it on the night and they were missed, but then life gets in the way as always (that's why we've been at this Devious malarkey for so long).
Thanks to everyone who came and saw our exhibit at the Brighton Modelworld 2015. Great stuff. We had a great time and enjoyed people's reactions to the sets and props. Rather than the sets and props languishing in store we want people to experience walking around the console that was used in Curse of Fatal Death and see some daleks that have had some mileage over the years. They're only fan-made (to see the real ones you should go to Cardiff!) but they have been around a bit, as it were!
In a few weeks there will be a select gathering at one of our houses to commemorate 20years since we filmed "that scene" with Jon Pertwee. Something at the time that seemed amazing to us, something we hadn't ever dreamt could happen. Still, it did, due to a chain of interconnecting events we hadn't expected when we started Devious all those years ago.
So, we will reassemble at Stephen's new house and raise a glass to the memory of a great day.
And who knows, we may upload something to the interweb after our evening!
Last minute stuff now in progress for the annual display of Devious props and sets etc. This year the display is slightly different with a notable addition. Hope to see some of you there. The Brighton Modelworld show is on from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd 10am until 5ish at the Brighton centre on the seafront. Great venue, great fun.
And to celebrate we've started a new section on the site called DALEKWORLD. Also please note we have had to combine the stage plays into one menu item for now until the new web design comes on stream. "Bear with".
Yes, you read that correctly. We've finally released something! Well, strictly its the slightly different team at The Never Was rather than Devious per se. Not that there's a lot of difference in the teams!!! Anyway, get yourselves over to theneverwas.org to catch the new video, and maybe you'll spot some Devious connections...
... starts NOW. Yep, finally! Here's what we said today on the Never Was site for the start of the countdown...
Hi there everyone who pops along here from time to time. Just to say that we're doing the final stuff for The Never Was now, and soon we'll start our countdown for that which we will mirror on the Devious website too as we are ever so linked!
A little reassurance for you...
We'll have a series of tongue-in-cheek articles as a countdown to the launch of The Never Was...
... and fruit flies like a banana - yep, heard that one.
We appreciate you haven't seen much of Devious yet (and truly you will soon - The Never Was will whet your appetite as well (just seeing the sets in use again gets us all misty eyed for those days back with our Doctor...)). That's a double ")" - what kind of english is this?
What do we all think of the new series on the telly by the way? Really looking forward to seeing Robot of Sherwood - we thought you'd forgive us this doctored image (above)...
