Oh and as of nine hours ago Philip Morris has come out and said he's limiting his exposure to social media following the DWM article.
You mean the booze in his cupboard has run out and he's sobering up with a hangover?
Glad someone else posted that for me.

Something that tends to get a bit lost amidst all the discussion about the departure of the lead man is how conspicuous the absence of Ahearne is after the first year of the revival. He episodes were well received, no one seems to have a bad word to say about him and he surely can't have been fully booked everytime they've been filming in the last decade but he's not been seen since. Not to suggest any sort of conspiracy- it could just be as simple as him not being interested in directing any more Who- but equally it's highly unlikely they'd have gotten him for the 50th even if Eccleston
would really have only done it if he'd been there.
As I understand, Ahearne didn't enjoy the experience of being on Doctor Who and found his time with the show was having a negative effect on his personal life and chose not to come back. So yeah, even if this were a serious request from Eccleston, it's unlikely he'd have gotten his wish anyway. Unless Ahearne likes working with Eccleston as much as Eccleston likes working with him.

And had it be the case, they could have worked on anything else together, i.e. not something they don't enjoy that much, like Doctor Who.

it's time that Doctor Who fandom reunited, we all started being nice to each other again.
Again ?

There's something very VERY weird about Who fandom. I'm only on the far periphery of it, but people I know describe a long history of factional bickering, one upmanship, poor behaviour, betrayal, backstabbing and outright unreasoning, unremitting hatred.

I relise Who has been going for so long things have had plenty of time to fragment and become acrimonious, but for crying out loud, it's a bloody T.V. show...

I think a lot of the problems in Who fandom stem from the unavailability of the series for such a long time. Star Trek fandom had daily reruns in the 1970s. Doctor Who fandom had memories of how things used to be. There were dividing lines based on how far back one had seen. There were people who had access to the past and people who wanted access to the past. One's fandom could be measured -- and judged -- by what one had seen, by what one remembered, by what one had kept along the way. Doctor Who fandom wasn't a casual fandom by any means.

Maybe Doctor Who fandom would have been in a better place psychologically if the BBC had done daily reruns in the afternoons after school. Of course, that would have meant different contracts with the various unions, and that would have meant money, and why would the BBC ever want to spend money?

Yep, that's Dr Who fandom. I suspect a lot of fandoms are like that on some level; organised fandoms especially. But Dr Who fandom is in a class of its own.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Phil Morris has again made a statement on the missing episodes facebook group, saying how he came into social media as a Dr Who fan first and foremost, and accepts his position elevates him to the standard of the current production team, etc. He said he's gonna make sure he keeps his fan and director of TIEA views separate from now on. Finally, he finished with this statemnt (which no doubt will be echoed around news sites):

Finally a message to all Dr Who fans interested in my work. I work in an unbelievably dangerous environment. As far as I know nobody else has gone into the volatile regions that I have. It is a wonderful job to search for lost World national heritage TV but a very precarious one. If I choose to give vague answers to repeated questions about my findings then there is a very good reason for this.
In time all shall be revealed. And when that moment comes all interested parties shall find full explanations for the myriad of topics and questions associated with me and my job both past and present, nothing shall be left out. Until then...

Patience is a virtue.

Keep believing and watch this space.

I suspect it just means he's got more leads he's following, he doesn't want to mess the leads up, but nothing concrete. That seems to be what those emails indicated as well.

I'm sure when all is revealed, it won't be that exciting. The guy is a lunatic so it's hard to take anything at face value now.

I don't know why fans are turning on him. He had a drunken rant. Big deal. Get over it. It's only been news sites that have used his aforementioned elevated status to makes news of this. Who fans bitch about shit like this all the time but we don't make a front papers.

Speaking of news sites, Doctor Who Worldwide have apologised for the past year of spreading rumours:

Plus he had at least one false Twitter account that he used for months to (a) praise himself, (b) attack Ian Levine and eventually (c) attack everybody.

I'd take the "all will be revealed" thing to mean he'll be writing a Memoir when he stops travelling in search of stuff. Let's hope he lays off the booze...
