It seems as though the BBC might have had a major accident earlier today, posting copies of scripts for the eighth season of Doctor Who onto a publicly accessible web server. Shortly after which fans scrambled to download the leaked scripts, and as the internet is the internet, they are now everywhere.
Their was five scripts that were leaked in today, uploaded to the BBC Miami web site, which some believe was in order for the BBC the translate the scripts ahead of the show’s official broadcast in August.
The script leak shows full details about the season opener which will be named “Deep Breath”, and will be the first time viewers see Peter Capaldi as the new doctor.
This has of course pissed a few fans off, and the BBC noticed that, and quickly responded with the following statement from a BBC Worldwide spokesperson:
“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.”
The BBC is also pleading with fans to not redistribute the scripts or share spoilers from them, but that is ultimately up to those who have download the scripts.
