Friend of Devious Gary Merchant has sent us this fine example of his work. He has been making alternative video/dvd covers for sci-fi stories for years and is a great fan of Dr Who (he can be seen on our welcome page greeting Tony at a convention).

 


Some time ago he did us a great cover for our piece, and has just sent us another one, drawn up without full knowledge of our story (not that we know it!!) and without hi-res bespoke artwork - i.e. compiled entirely from what he's een on the website over the years.

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...

Well after a few days of woodwork and painting, the battered old TARDIS is fully restored and ready for another few years service.
 
With a total of 7 coats of paint over the years, the final finish is looking suitably battered now, so very little deliberate weathering was necessary.
 
The first picture shows the new roof, complete with it's new paint job.

Just while I have a quick moment I'd like to insert a few words of thanks for David Price who organised the Dimensions On Tyne Convention - a successful convention indeed for all concerned. Certainly we enjoyed ourselves and were made to feel welcome. We were flattered by the attention we received, and relieved our 'slot' went well. The fans seemed to enjoy our footage - the documentary, the extracts and the 'Pertwee Scene' itself drew a good reaction, judging by the numbers of fans who spoke to us afterwards as well as the immediate reaction to the panel.

Well, the secret is well and truly out now! Thanks to clever planning by Big Finish something of the spirit of Jon Pertwee was around for the 40th Anniversary.

We said there'd be more news on something rather interesting... A voice you may have heard somewhere... Rest assured we'll have a feature on this in the next week or so... Sorry for the delay...

Here's a totally unrelated picture to keep you going until then...

Those of you who've worked things out bear with us whilst we wait for the rest of you to catch up. We'll have some news, pics and an insight into something rather special in the not too distant future.

Just a quick word to say thanks to all at 10th Planet for their hospitality in hosting a great celebration for the Doctor Who 40th! Thanks also to Big Finish for making a great series of audios that has kept the flame alive since the tv series and movie. Excellent! Here's a shot of Paul McGann trying to avoid celebrating the 41st anniversary !!!

For all the best filming you need a location. Well researched and available. So who do you get to choose this ideal spot? Well, none other than our own Stephen Cranford, it seems! Yes, Stephen from the team has been busy (as always) and was recently involved in filming one of the 'extras' for the recent 'Two Doctors' DVD release...
