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.

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...

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...!

TARDIS TRAVELS - UPDATE

Apparently the Devious prop TARDIS will be on BBC ONE this coming Sunday 5th JUNEon the Alan Titchmarsh 20th Century Antiques show at 6.45. We thought it was on a Thursday but it seems like many things it has had its slot moved - ooh err - and so now you can catch our handiwork in a supporting role on that date!

THIS IS MY GUESS

Ashley just wanted to say that here and now he is suggesting, nay guessing,that the new series of the Dr Who series will end with an appearance by the Emperor Dalek. The recent DWM says that there's something secret, so Ashley wants to be shot down in flames or applauded - one way or the other it seems. He's determined to go on record to make this guess and states he has no insider knowledge (or would seek it) and so this guess is presumably a typical fan's thoughts (or hopes) for the new series finale.
