Now that Christopher Eccleston has joined and will soon be leaving the rank of 'current Dr Who' we'd just like to confirm rumours that Tony Garner, our 'interim Dr Who' has in fact not been asked to feature in the new series as the Tenth Doctor. If he had an agent he would have also confirmed this. This totally expected announcement comes as the world of Dr Who fandom is in turmoil over who should accept the role and become the next tennant of this coveted part.

Now where have we heard that headline before? Back in 1996 when Devious had just filmed the Jon Pertwee scene in fact! 1996 - a false start for the television series in a way, and a shame, as Paul McGann was an excellent choice as Doctor, and to see him handover the role today to Christopher Eccleston would have been a treat. Still, that's one for the flashback perhaps. Time to look ahead now. Time for a new start. Time for the return of a series that will doubtless encourage more efforts like Devious from others out there perhaps.

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 (above) 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.

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...
ooh err! Yes - we're still going! Just because the website's a bit quiet it doesn't mean nothing's happening! Ashley is still set-building - having the task of building both in 5th-scale and full-scalefor the main control room. A full summer including a 3 week trip to West Africa (for work) has meant that filming is intended now to be mid to late October rather than September to allow for family commitments as well as theset construction to be completed in time.
For those of you who like to know we're still busy - well we are. It's all in the preparation, and with that in mind there's been set construction, prop mending and editing over the past few weeks. The church-crypt Tardis external door frame and door are half-finished now (think "Warriors Gate" for the look) and it's been driving Ashley half-mental (the final half). The hand-held dalek gun used by someone in the film has finally been mended (it had an annoying habit of falling apart only during a take) and is now a fearsome lump of plastic, metal, wire, fake circuitry etc etc (i.e.
