De afgelopen dagen zijn de scenario’s van vijf afleveringen van het achtste seizoen van BBC-serie Doctor Who gelekt. De zender verzoekt websites en fans om geen spoilers te geven. Naar verluidt lekten de scripts nadat ze naar het Latin America hoofdkwartier van BBC Worldwide in Miami gestuurd werden voor vertaling. Het officiële statement van BBC Worldwide is:

“BBC Worldwide is currently investigating a security issue around Doctor Who Series 8 where unfinished material has inadvertently been made public. We deeply regret this and apologise to all the show’s fans, the BBC and the cast and crew who have worked tirelessly making the series.

We would like to make a plea to anyone who might have any of this material and spoilers associated with it not to share it with a wider audience so that everyone can enjoy the show as it should be seen when it launches. We know only too well that Doctor Who fans are the best in the world and we thank them for their help with this and their continued loyalty.

The opening episode is being simulcast globally so of course translations have to be prepared in advance.”

Het achtste seizoen van Doctor Who gaat op 23 augustus van start.
