BBC apologizes to fans after Doctor Who scripts leak to internet
It has been a very hectic week at BBC as multiple scripts from the upcoming season of ‘Doctor Who’ have found their way online. Multiple story-lines, spoilers and character details have been leaked, and are now flying across the internet.
The U.K. network has confirmed that five scripts from the Peter Capaldi season of Doctor Who have already been leaked, and the network is hoping that fans do not spoil, or share the information with anyone else.
The BBC is taking the security issue quite seriously, this upcoming season is the first that will star Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor, adding a new Doctor always adds new twists, and the network isn’t happy about all of that hard-work going to waste. A trailer for the new season was released just last week, don’t worry, there are no spoilers in this BBC authorized video for the upcoming season.
“Unfinished material has inadvertently been made public,” the company said in a statment. “We deeply regret this and apologize 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.” BBC Worldwide said in a statement adding, “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.”
Obviously a true Doctor Who fans will want to stay clear of these spoilers, the new season will be starting up shortly anyway, with the premiere for the first episode set to begin in August. The official release date for the worldwide event August 23, 2014.
