Now we really must get a new section on the site to show some images from the "Doctor Who in the South" programme segments from BBC One's "South Today" back in July. Until that time, here's a few to give you a flavour if you were unable to see the transmission...
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...
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?????
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.
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!!).
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.
