What is Ian Levine thinking, that this guy sits on a throne built out of film cans, cackling all day and waiting for Levine to croak so that he can finally make his move to grab money, fame and power?
I think Levine's anger stems from his fear of mortality. He truly believes that Phil Morris has found a massive haul of Doctor Who, plugging in virtually all of the missing gaps. He's afraid that he'll die and never get to see "Power of the Daleks" and "The Abominable Snowman" and all the rest ever again, and this causes him mental anguish. And so he lashes out at the person causing him that anguish -- Phil Morris.

The irony is that, someday, Levine will die and yet Doctor Who will go on. There will be decades of Doctor Who that Levine will never get to see, never get to experience, yet he's fixated on reliving the things he remembers from his youth. The tragedy of Ian Levine.

Maybe he really has found something (but hardly everything), there are reasons not to announce things before they are ready but I guarantee, making Ian Levine's blood boil is not one of them, he's not that important except in his own mind.
Exactly. If there's something to be announced, it will be announced when it's ready and not one minute before. The announcements, or rather the lack thereof, have nothing whatsoever to do with Ian Levine. Or any of us.
