After learning that five scripts from Doctor Who‘s upcoming eighth season have been leaked online, Studio BBC Worldwide has released a statement pleading fans not to spread the spoilers and not to read the leaked scripts:
“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 on 23rd August. 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.”
While no official announcement has been made, it is believed that the scripts were leaked by a member of BBC Worldwide’s new Latin America headquarters in Miami, Florida, where the scripts were being translated.
Season eight of Doctor Who premieres August 23 on BBC One and BBC America.
