Levine, did he not play Sgt Benton, and why does he seem to be unhappy about lost episodes?

No, Benton is played by John Levene.

Ian Levine is a "Super Fan"

Ian Levine is credited for saving dozens of missing episodes from destruction.

He also has an ego the size of Gallifrey.

Actually a few years ago I used to wonder this

I had no idea who this Levine guy was until this thread and wiki, great stuff he saved all those episodes from being destroyed, bad that he seems to have had a major roll in Doctor in distress. lol

That did occur to me about Toymaker, but that then opens up the question of whether the animators might find it easier to have more freedom to indulge their imaginations, rather than reproducing reference images.
I don't want the animators bloody imaginations. I want something that looks like the original episode.
I don't mind the animators taking some artistic license. After all, recreating the live action episodes exactly as they would have appeared is pretty much impossible. The live action actors have so many individual tics & subtleties to their performances that the animators just can't replicate. In lieu of that, I'd like for the animators to at least do the best job they can to make the episodes visually stimulating in their own way.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Given a few days with no overblown claims or insufficiently vehement denials about the 90-episode guff, the missing episodes thread at Gallifrey Base has degenerated into another round of the perennial rumor-mongering about uberfans with secret missing episodes in their private collections, which they pass around amongst themselves, presumably while twirling their mustaches and giggling with maniacal glee. And, as ever, pointing out that this is extremely unlikely has brought about replies of "But it COULD be true" and "It sounds like something somebody might do!" This atmosphere of credulity is what leads unwary outsiders like Rich Johnston to their "scoops."

On the missing episode forum you get the odd person beginning a post with "well I heard that..." followed by the rumour of the day.

These people usually have less than a 50 post count.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The latest "news" is that Frazer Hines said at London Film and Comic Con that someone unspecified had called him a few weeks ago saying that everything except "The Highlanders" had been found. Hines was excited at the time, but hasn't heard anything else and no longer believes it. On the other hand, an employee at Who Shop in London told another poster that he "knew for a fact" that episode 2 of "The Highlanders" had been found. Also, someone apparently started to ask a question about missing episodes at a Doctor Who event at London Film and Comic Con, but was cut off by the moderator.

...Another day, another encapsulation of what missing episode rumors and gossip are worth.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The possibility of missing episode discoveries was discussed at work a few days ago. One of my coworkers said that there seemed like an awful amount of smoke so there must be something to the rumors.

"No," I said, "it's just as likely that there's a lot of people blowing dust around in a circle, and you blow enough dust it'll look like smoke."

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

^ All the event was is a Q&A with guests attending a signing there today. Which which in the case of Doctor Who would be Peter Purves, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, maybe Philip Hinchcliffe and Angela Bruce. It's not a Comic Con of American proportions.

Fool me a few times, shame on you. Fool me a few dozen more times, shame on my gullibility.

I refuse to believe anything until its in my hands.

Rumors that are not worth repeating . . . and should not be repeated.
