The Name of the Doctor - Leak Scandal

Some American fans of Doctor Who who pre-ordered Series 7: Part 2 on Blu-ray have accidentally received their copies early, a week before the Doctor Who series seven final broadcast. From this, spoilers and plot details from The Name of the Doctor are thought to be posted in forums and comment rooms online as well as becoming a torrent file to download, much to some fans' dismay who would rather wait until the episode's broadcast this Saturday.

Out of this, the BBC tweeted "We understand that a small number of US fans have received in error their DVD edition of Series 7 Part 2 early. We respectfully ask those fans not to divulge information or post content publicly so that fellow fans who have yet to see the episodes do not have their viewing pleasure ruined." They later tweeted "If everyone keeps the secrets safe until next Saturday we will release a special new clip featuring material of the Tenth AND Eleventh Doctor!" Meaning that a clip from the upcoming Doctor Who anniversary special would become available to watch.

Doctor Who: The Name of the Doctor will broadcast this Saturday at 7:00pm on BBC One and BBC One HD in the UK, 9:00pm/8C on BBC America in the US and 8:00pm/5P on Space in Canada. In other news: Steven Moffat has confirmed that an eighth series of Doctor Who is "definite", with pre-production taking place and the episodes currently being written.
