DEVIOUS on the RADIO !!

I've just got back from appearing on the local radio this morning (Ashley speaking here). Along with Stephen Cranford I've just done two short interviews for BBC Southern Counties Radio regarding Doctor Who- our effort Devious, and some thoughts on the new series. Great fun - unlike seasoned broadcaster Stephen I've not done this sort of thing before so it was a little nerve-racking aforehand but then when "on air" (as these people call it!) it was fine!

March and Doctor Who

 

Well it's a big month for Doctor Who. With the new series debuting later this month it's high time Devious' filming was completed. Plans to finish tonight (1 March) have been scuppered due to the set location not being quite ready, and so it's expected we'll finish in the next few weeks. We won't mention it until it's done! In the meantime here's a few new images from the January filming - also repeated full size in the filming section (jan 2005)...

More this and that

Well, we've delayed our short bit of filming another week. If it isn't done in the next week or two it'll be done later in the year, say May, which will be a shame, 'cause if we do it next week we'll have completed all the necessary filming for Devious. Rather neatly just before the new series starts! We've been a sort of stop-gap for our Whovian interests as we did start not too long after the "classic" series ended on BBC1 (in reality year or two after but we were mulling the idea over back then). Still, it's all just a hobby and a bit of fun!!

section: 

this and that

Well, couple of things - firstly just to say those of us from Devious who went to the World Premiere of 'Griffin' thoroughly enjoyed the evening. A great film and worthy of more showings - in a cinema near you! (Go to their site to see how you can help get another showing...) - sounds good for the future for this project - a follow up surely must/ought to happen!!!

section: 

console yourself, it's only a set...

Well, after the latest batch of filming we've been able to dispose of some sets - the archway door has seen it's last materialisation, and the last parts of the control room sets used last May will be junked very soon once they have been measured and photographed ready for the model versions to be built.

The main console and tardis walls will be retained for the forseeable future although we welcome any thoughts people have.

January 2005 Filming a Success

Being superstitious, Ashley has dated this news item for tomorrow!. And superstition played a part in the build up to this latest filming session - i.e. tempting fate - and so we didn't want to show too much of the sets and stuff before we had got footage in the can. We've managed to get within a hairsbreadth now of finishing all live action filming - there's a couple of minutes worth to do perhaps in February (or later this year when it's warmer as the final piece may well be shot outside!!)

Here's a few pics to show you a bit of what we filmed this last weekend...

Tempting Fate

No time to lose, no time to spare, it's all systems go on the set build ready for our filming...tomorrow! Yes, this weekend coming (this note written Friday 7th Jan) we hope to complete a marathon schedule. As soon as we have some pictures to add to the site they'll be here. Fingers crossed all goes well - we're nervous and feel terribly unprepared - but what's new - we're always like that... Let's hope we're not tempting fate by even mentioning all this to the web...eek...More soon (hopefully)...

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations on an excellent end episode of thenew series of Dr Who and a fine example of the actors' skill in all the cast not just Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper! Fine modelwork too from Mike Tucker and a great new realisation of the Emperor Dalek. The Bad Wolf element was also well done. We're also so glad that the resemblance between Devious and series one of the Doctor Who revival was in the end superficial and satisfyingly coincidental.

section: 

Well, it certainly sounds like the Emperor...

As guessed last week by Ashley* we seem to have the new Doctor meeting the Emperor Dalek (we think) next week in Dr Who [the new series] after a battle with loads of daleks. He's had a series of adventures where he's not been really sure what's being going on due to a time war - it only comes together at the end. And he's in danger of losing that new body...We all know who comes next...

and meanwhile in the strange strange land of Devious which we occasionally visit over a period of years and years with no money but loads of enthusiasm...

section: 

the Titchmarsh Tardis etc

Well, the Devious Police Box was featured in the 20th Century Antiques programme on Sunday last and looked good we thought. It was shown twice - once to introduce a prolificDr Who collector and his great collection, and then to close the show with Alan stepping into the box after saying goodbye. Thanks again to the Beeb for looking after it when it was away down in Cornwall - it's now back in storage awaiting it's next day out...!
