The Millais Gallery's exhibition by Roy Brown is now in full swing and there's now a web page giving more details and some interesting photos (if you like daleks, that is!). Click here for details. Here's one photo from the page (used without permission, so please someone exterminate me if I am not entitled to do so!). Now, isn't that Chico at the end of the row on the left?????
news and news archive from the production
Three of the Devious daleks made the trip to Liverpool for this excellent convention! Here (reproduced entirely without permission, so please forgive if this is a problem for you) is a shot from the excellent Day of the Daleks website...
thanks again for inviting us...!
Our archive goes back to 1999, although we are preparing some features on specific events in our long history which may be of interest! The good thing is that we're committed to getting it finished, and will report on these pages as we go...
Of course a lot of our major filming was done before 1999 - the Pertwee scene was 1995. Somewhere we have an archived copy of our old Geocities site and possibly its successor too - so there's a liklihood we may be able to recreate some older news items to complete the archive properly.
In a rare outing the Devious daleks (accompanied by a Remembrance clone courtesy of friend of Devious: Mat Hicks) yesterday spent the evening as exhibits at an event featuring Sherlock - League of Gentlemen - Doctor Who luminary Mark Gatiss and visual effects supremo Paul (Inception, Harry Potter, Dark Knight) Franklin.
Well, we're invited again next year to display our sets and props at the famous Brighton ModelWorld show. As before as an exhibitor our stand will be a celebration of daleks although with a different emphasis! Last year we displayed 6 from Devious as well as a couple more from friends of ours.
Deadlines focus the mind. Wih Ashley deep in programming for his new enterprise he's finding it tough getting everything done. However you will still expect to see a new exhibit at the Brighton ModelWorld this year. Also expect a sleeping Ashley under it! The only way to get things done is to set a deadline. And the only way to do a good job is to plan plan plan and then do it all the fortnight before! Sounds wrong? Only if the final result is any less than 100% of the original concept.
Sorry for the lack of updates - have been merrily building stuff to get Devious finished! Well, that's the hope. I (Ashley) have just got back from the Brighton Centre where we have been setting up our exhibit for this year. And we're bigger than ever! 5 of your french metres by 6 of them! That's, err, many yards wide by a demi-furlong deep. Or something like that.
A great success all round as far as we hear. Ashley would just like to take this very public opportunity to thank everyone involved with the play who made it such a wonderful experience. The masterplan part of this Devious website will now be used to mount a weighty retrospective of the play. There'll be behind-the-scenes features such as the dalek builds, the in-theatre preparations and some dress rehearsal on-stage puictures, such as the one below...(Now those of you who couldn't get along to the play can now finally see the colour schemes we chose!)...
Here we go again! Yesterday we've seen copies of Starburst Magazine on the racks in the newsagents. So if the regular edition is out does that mean the Starburst Doctor Who Special no 87 is out there somewhere???? If you see a copy anywhere please let us know via the Say Hello part of the site!
And in other news Ashley has been beavering away (last week and this) making new model props for the effects scenes. When he has some ready we're sure he'll give us some photos for the site!
Evil of the Daleks - THE STAGE PLAY - is coming to Portsmouth later this year! And now we can announce it on this site and help our friends down in that fine city with their latest production - the famous "lost" Troughton story. These chaps have already brought you Fury from the Deep and Web of Fear fully licenced from the BBC and original writers and writers' agents/estate. They put together very professional performances and it is true to say that Evil of the Daleks will be well worth waiting for. Ambitious? Certainly - but if you don't have ambition you don't achieve.
