    I have the same birthday as Ian Levine!

    What’s made *you* go “Oh no!” today?

    >I have the same birthday as Ian Levine!

    Why is he so hated by Doctor Who fans? I don’t see much wrong with the guy, it is down to him that some Doctor Who episodes were recovered, he should be praised for bringing them from total destruction, what has he done that is so bad? (not including Doctor in Distress)

    Taking false credit for co-writing Attack of the Cybermen and just generally being an aggressive, destructive force in Who fandom.

    I thought he provided the story outline and the Saward is the only person to deny that Ian had involvment, I’d be prone to trusting Ian over Eric.

    You’d be prone to trusting Levine’s online claims/rantings (and you really can’t deny how volatile and aggressive the man is) over a past Doctor Who script editor giving an interview and answering a direct question about who wrote the episode?

    I guess it is just that I don’t like Saward, he is not a very nice man. I don’t know much about Levine.

    Clearly.

    Most of my Who knowledge comes from the DVDs and up to now I have not heard Ian bashing, a bit on the forums every now and again. Maybe that will change with ‘Attack of the Cybermen’ set for March.

    After JNT’s death Ian Levine claimed many of his ideas as his own.

    After Gary Downie’s death Ian Levine claimed another raft of JNT’s ideas as well.

    And made a big stink about Eccleston departing, spouting some chuff about how he shouldn’t have taken such an iconic role unless he was willing to do more than a year. Nevermind the fact that had Eccleston done 3 seasons he might well have been irreplaceable.

    Oh, well I guess going back to the OP the thing that made me go Oh no was how much of a twat Ian Levine is and how I didn’t know. I plead ignorance!

    Today’s lesson kids, is that is only takes one Massive Twat to taint a fandom. In completely UNrelated OH NO news; just discovered Keanu Reeves is trying really hard to become Spike Spigel.

    Walking into our server room at work to discover a MASSIVE PUDDLE caused by a leaking air conditioning unit, and then discovering that there were various live electrical cables dotted around and perilously close to said water. THAT WAS FUN.

    I fixed it all, though, because I’m fucking brill.

    Going into the toilet after the previous user/attendee/pooper/bowel evacuee had left a nasty ‘treat’.

    I won’t go into detail, but it involved a loo brush.

    had an early supper, then came back to this thread. You don’t still have that brush, do you? guh.

    That is precisely why I will never be able to be arsed to go into self employment.

    Turning up an hour late for lunch with some former Disney co-workers. In all fairness, it was because I was having coffee with a very cute, very tall, slightly barmy girl I met at the Casting office today.

    Tsk, I bet if you turned up on time they’d have given you Lost screeners which you could then forward to me.

    One thing that I went Oh no! at today. I realised Iain Lee still exists.

    Another thing that make me go “Oh no”, was I realised that a countdown from 5 to 1 appeared above my head, at this point I’ve only see the ‘1’, before promptly grabbing my head, shaking and blowing up.

    Surely the biggest ‘oh no’ moment ever is when you ‘lose’ the ring pull up there. That’s a trip to the hospital no-one wants to make.

    I bumped the car behind when coming out of a parking space. Then I realised it belonged to the cunt that lives upstairs, thought ‘fuck it’ and rammed it like a dog rams legs.

    I just found out that a Simpsons fanscript written by a teenage version of myself still exists on the web. This is an “oh no” moment in all sorts of ways.

    Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnooo.

    I’m too embarrassed to actually read the thing through myself. In fact, I only posted about it after I assured myself it couldn’t be found without knowing the title. (For some reason they stripped my name from it. I’m fine with that, but since nobody else is taking credit for it I’m not sure why they bothered.)

    Maybe one day if I’m brave enough I’ll give it a read through and decide if I’ll allow people to make fun of it…but I think it’s safe to assume you’re not missing much.

    Look for it in Phils Phirst Pholio.
