    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    I like Colin Baker's expression in your av. It's like he's been listening to our conversation and thinking, "You know, I never thought about it like that. I got screwed!":techman:

    OK, well that merely upgrades it from "nearly impossible" to "possible but makes no damn sense, totally random, and has no basis in anything previously established."

    So, what, Maxil chopped a hand off immediately after each regeneration to prevent his actual appearance from changing? I guess it's not a bad idea, though shouldn't there also be about a dozen Maxil meta-crisis clones?

    I don't think 10.5 is the regeneration. It was a side effect. The way I interpret 11's words from Time of the Doctor, 10 was so vein he did regenerate and kept the same form, so it was Ten regenerating into Ten. That there was excess energy and a hand happened to be near to grow something else (with only one heart) is just a bonus.

    It also fits into Romana choosing her form during her first regeneration.

    One of the more bizarre aspects of the Omnirumour was the report that Philip Morris had issues with Steven Moffat and wanted him out.

    Well it turns out there is some truth to that.

    Which may lead some to go, "A-ha! Morris is hoarding until Moffat goes!"

    So how long before Ian Levine responds with a completely over the top response comparing Phillip Morris to some manner of vermin or something.

    As for Morris's editorial, he does make some good points about many things. I'm so far liking season 8 primarily because of Capaldi, but Moffat's writing does seem somewhat lacking.

    Thanks! I should've checked it.

    Hopefully, Levine won't. He had a major stroke within the last two weeks.

    Uhh, Ian Levine won't be doing much of anything for a while...

    Twitter Account, August 24: If you have not already heard, I am in the hospital recovering from a major stroke. I am doing my best to recuperate and get my life back.
    August 28: I don't believe a word Philip Morris has said. What happened to the wind blowing in the right direction? Someone is tweeting for me. I am sadly not better. Far from it. I will be (doing) poorly for several months.

    EDIT: Ah, Allyn beat me to it.

    Oh, shit! I kind of feel bad making a joke about him now. Whatever else we may think of Ian Levine, strokes are pretty terrible and can completely screw a person's life over.

    Wow, if Morris wrote the quotes attributed to him, he comes off as super petty!

    Actually I think he makes some valid points, although he makes them somewhat harshly.

    "Somewhat harshly"? He's a child and doesn't deserve any attention.

    He's expressing his opinion just like anyone else does. It's only the fact that he's now in the spotlight makes his comments all the more brighter. I only hope it doesn't bring out more hoarding speculation...

    Hadn't heard the news about Ian before today. Hope he recovers well.

    Actually, most people are less petty and much more articulate than he is.

    How ironic that Ian Levine's replacement in the Missing Episodes game has turned out to be Levine Mk II. I guess there's something about the obsession needed for the task that also makes you an asshole.

    And speaking of assholes, since there's no chance of Moffat falling on his sword for the good of the series history it's going to be a long, long time before we see any of those episodes that are sitting in Morris' warehouse...

    Not that I believe for a second Moffat is going anywhere but that's hardly an unequivocal denial.

    Hm, I used to think that Levine was a delusional bitter narcissistic douchebag picking fights with a professional, but I was clearly wrong- in fact he just happened to be picking fights with *another* delusional bitter narcissistic douchebag.

    Nice to know that's cleared up.

    When Moffatt goes, it'll be to leave Brian Minchin in charge.

    This whole thing between them makes the plots from the BBC Bonekickers seem like a speak and spell book. lol
