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.

And fandom - well, the increasingly-deranged (and he's never been that stable) Levine - would just call him a liar and keep the endless shit going anyway.

I'm still enjoying the endless shit. I'm a relative newbie though.

I suppose after several decades, it gets old...

I go to hand it to you, you've turned this amusing diversion that is Ian Levine's tirades and outbursts and turned it into something which seems deep and profound.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Today would be the perfect day for Morris to Tweet Levine that he's found all the 97... Whether he has or not!

So, has Levine bitched that Derek Martinus didn't get to see his stuff restored?

Yeah, I totally have this thread under the magnifying glass today expecting the obvious prank to occur.

Levine is already prepared. Early this morning he tweeted:

"Beware April 1st, people.

Do not believe ANYTHING at all that you might hear about missing Doctor Who episodes.

JUST DON'T FALL FOR IT."

No actual jokes so far, though this old one is doing the rounds again.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

While Levine is certainly certifiable, I can't doubt his enthusiasm. And one that last for as long as the show exists. True, his weird non-commitment to audio Who is, well, plain stupid - especially when at its best, Big Finish actually enriched the OldWho background with more character-driven stories than the ones transmitted, especially in the case of the 80's Who. And as he's doing recons of stories not only originally-to-be-done (usually using Big Finish as resource), but also creates stories basically out of thin air, most famously his Gallifrey project, he comes off as highly, highly hypocritical.

In any case, however, I do agree occassionaly with what he says. I mean, if, and thats a big IF, Phil Morris has episodes found but simply waits for "the right time", then he is a douche too, for he's holding them off for no good reason. I'm not an apologist to those kinds of people - now, if the secrecy was similar to the recent discoveries of Enemy of the World and Web of Fear, where they were worked on by the Restoration Team all this time and when they were done, they were released, that I get behind. Its better to get a finished result with the said revelation, especially if its coming out of nowhere.

In any case, I do hope, like many, if not all fans, that most, if not all missing episodes will be found and released, eventually. And preferably sooner, rather than later.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Ian Levine has thrown down his gauntlet. He wants a public debate with Morris.
