Four Candles

Two Ronnies - Four Candles. Famous sketch where the poor shopkeeper is given the runaround by an innocent shopper. So we as innocents are giving you this picture and hoping you'll know what it is for...

Yep - no connection whatsoever between that sketch and this article except that the picture is surely worth discussion! Well, there is a connection with the picture below (of Mark) of Mark....


More filming ! - filling a hole

We jest not ! Today (Friday 9th March 2018) we actually did some actual filming! Just a few seconds was shot and is a key part of the end of episode one that we realised we needed. Just filling a hole really !

Unfortunately all we can show you is this image - which, combined with this meagre bit of text must surely qualify as one of the dullest updates we've ever attempted on the site! Still, shows we working on it...

It was shot on high resolution and in slow motion - if that helps with the excitement factor...


Doctor Who News features Graham Strong

Great to read about Graham Strong donating his famous audio collection to Mark Ayres so it can be archived. This was featured in the Doctor Who News website as we're sure you are all aware! Friend of Devious Graham is local to us and has known Stephen Cranford from the Team a very long time. Last May a group of us went with Graham to his first ever convention appearance, and hopefully he can be persuaded to do some more!

Anyway - for more images head over to the Doctor Who News site - link displayed below the image! More soon.



In a moment of weakness we've all agreed to get another episode one edit ready to show Stephen - this hopefully being a completed one! We've set a deadline and like Brexit there may or may not be everything we all want in the final mix. And that's the last Brexit mention in this website!

And just for a bit of fun here's another image to decorate this brief update! More soon...

Oh yes - and here's Mark filming for something ... (the second image)



Big Finish called...

As promised here's the identity of our cast member called up by Big Finish not long ago. There have been two stories - one of which is a Blake's Seven adventure... More soon when we know the other title!

We did ask Anthony for a quote and he said he waffled on a lot in the extras disc - and so what better recommendation can we give to go off and buy this disc set! 

Congratulations to Anthony - our "Phillip" in "Devious". Many more to come we are sure. 



Big Finish calls...

One of our esteemed cast has just informed us that he/she has recorded a Big Finish audio story and is scheduled to be in another!

We are not giving away the identity of this person at this stage, as it is all very "hush hush". So we will respect this secrecy of course, but just put this out there for you all! The first audio is in the Blake's Seven range, and the following one is something in the Doctor Who range. 

Obviously we're all such talents it is going to be impossible for you to work out who it could be - any one of us could have had the call. 


The Devious Trio

Anyone who has been involved in Devious at one point or another has doubtless been "a vital part of the team" or, "an essential member of the trio". A bit like Douglas Adams really and his Hitchhikers which was a trilogy in four parts.

Well the trio that is Devious used originally to be Barry Ashley and David - hence "BAD", then Stephen took Barry's place hence "SAD", and now Mark is on board with Stephen taking on that grandfatherly overview (despite being (probably) the youngest), and so now we are "MAD".


Early Spring Clean

Yes we know it is Winter, but the New Year brings out a tidying motive to some people. Ashley reports that whilst he was out in his shed/office/storeroom playing with some cgi he popped in to the house for that much needed cup of tea to be confronted with some old photographs that had been rediscovered during a bit of reorganisation. He shares them with us all now! 


Out and About

Just a quick note to tell of recent dalek escapades... There are two of the chaps currently out on display in deepest darkest Brighton doing their bit for charity as always. Since threatening our Devious Doctor they've been rather at a loose end and so have had many days (and weeks) out in the community. We haven't had any reports of mass exterminations so we assume all is going well. Presumably this is all part of some Master Plan (to coin a phrase) and we'll hear of things dastardly via the local news at some point.
