More tonight !!!

 

The 12th-14th caption we've been using is a little redundant. Today's the 15th and there's more of the South Today 'Southern Ways' tonight. Sylvester is guesting in the studio we believe - no more news as yet. Last night featured the Tardis police box again in a jaunt to Arundel Castle West Sussex where Silver Nemesis was filmed. All through this we've been delighted to see our props being used to illustrate these programmes, and have been very happy to help something which has hopefully raised the profile of the programme in the run up to the new series.

Daleks Go Back To School

South Today (last night 13 July)featured the console again*, and one of the Devious daleks at Patcham School. 'Friend of Devious' Rowlie Darby was interviewed by Sylvester McCoy in the new library building of the school where the dalek has been in useful educational employment !

We've been mentioning this connection over the months on this site and have been promising photos, so I think last night solved that issue! More tonight on South Today - the Tardis at a new secret location?????

tonight ...tonight ...

There's a song that starts like that. Anyway - tonight on BBC 1 South Today (the regional news programme for those people who live in the South of England including Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire (I think) Surrey (possibly), West Sussex, Berkshire (I think) and Oxfordshire (blimey)) you will seeDevious dalek(s) and the Tardis which were used by Bill Baggs' Southern Ways documentary segment on Dr Who in the South. (Sorry - overlong sentence that). The piece has been in production for some while and originally was going to include much more - i.e.

New images and the usual waffle

 


A few new images now from the last filming batch. What with all the office and house moves by the team we've been a little slow in updating the site! (Users of the AshleyX Gary Numan site get the same excuse!). Anyway here's a few new pics for you to keep you happy until we create a new area especially for them as per the previous filming weekends.

A revised thank-you

Hi there - thanks to Tim from the team we now have a full list of the people we wish to thank for the recent weekend. We really appreciate the hard work everyone put in to make the weekend a success and it is right that you are all thanked - Tim rather sensibly noted everyone's names, since we had a number of 'first-timers' around! So without further ado here's Tim's notes exactly as he sent them ! (complete with odd references here and then - a result of 'in-jokes' that beset any grouping!!).

Filming 31st of May a success !?!?!?!?!?

So why do we always seem to film in May? Well, it's June now as I type this (Ashley). It's about 2am in fact and I've just returned from the final day of our marathon. We've 28 tapes from the weekend all told, and until they're copied and viewed we won't know for sure about all the shots - the only missing shot so far we know we can remount anywhere - we just need an actor, a dalek and a black wall. Right now we all need a rest. The main part of the set remains in place this coming week in case any thoughts come to mind regarding additional shots.

Filming 30th May a Success ?!?!?!?!

Original headline this! Well, all I can say is we made it through day two of our big set three-day marathon with no major problems. Ok so we had some entertainment with the Black Dalek doing it's own thing but generally we think we're on course! After tomorrow with any luck we will have finished all the dalek control room scenes - there's only the third tardis interior and some brief production line and external inserts to be done afterwards so here's hoping.......

Further evidence of child labour in 'Devious'

Our spies tell us that there have been more shameful cases of the use child labour by the Devious team. Youngsters as young as seven or eight have been witnessed helping out with the recent filming. These recently discovered photographs expose the whole thing in a shameful manner worthy of the daleks' own mines on Skaro or the working conditions on Exxilon. Here we see Ian Watts entombing his own daughter within a dalek casing...
