May Day +1

Now that Beltane is come and gone, it seems as good a time as any to reveal some details of an exciting Who-related project I’ve been involved in with Reeltime Pictures…

White Witch of Devil’s End will be a talking head drama featuring Damaris Hayman reprising her role as Miss Hawthorne from the 1971 Jon Pertwee story The Daemons. In it, she tells the story of her life in Devil’s End as a white witch … and her fears for the imminent future.

Keith Barnfather developed the DVD drama, approaching some of fantasy writing’s best-known names to write a series of short stories recounting events from Olive Hawthorne’s life in Devil’s End. Suzanne Barbieri, Debbie Bennett, Raven Dane, Jan Edwards, David J Howe and Sam Stone all contributed tales, and I was asked by Keith to help script edit the screenplay into its final form.

Primary filming took place last autumn with the wonderful Damaris Hayman, and Reeltime aim to release the DVD later this year as a stand-alone, and boxed along with a re-release of cast and crew reunion documentary Return to Devil’s End, plus a collectors edition. More details soon – but you can pre-order at Galaxy 4.

    Is the picture meant to look like Stephen Fry?
