New Doctor Who Leaked Online

Post by tony ingram on Mon Jul 07, 2014 8:27 pm

The first five scripts from the upcoming series, and possibly (for a brief time) the episodes themselves, have been leaked after private servers at the BBC's new Miami office were left open to the public and started showing up on search engines. The BBC have called for bloggers and news sites to be responsible and not post spoilers or links to illegal copies of the material.

So, that will work out well, then... Rolling Eyes

You are working from a false assumption, I'm afraid. I haven't made any attempt to look at the scripts, and am actively avoiding spoilers. I want my series eight totally unspoiled!

Charlie offered, via Twitter, to email the PDFs to me, but I declined.

Spoilers are called spoilers for a reason.

I know. Doesn't seem to bother him, though.

Well, OK, so long as you promise not to say a word to anyone.

There is a story arc running through the series, and the big reveal in the penultimate episode is that the hidden enemy who has been trying to destroy the Doctor all along was Russell T Davies-who is, in reality, Yartek, leader of the alien Voord from The Keys of Marinus!

But don't say I told you.

Damn, that's a difficult spoiler to keep, but I'll try Tony.

I'll try.

I feel the same. I wouldn't mind having copies of the scripts, in that I find the mechanics of things interesting, but I wouldn't read them until after seeing the episodes. I don't need to know what's happening until I see it on the screen.

Same here, that's why I bought the script books back in the nineties.

I'd rather see an episode than read a script.

Someone on another forum spotted a rather nice Easter egg on the leaked version of episode five, where a character familiar to longtime readers of the Doctor Who comic strips makes his blink-and-you'll-miss-it TV debut as a face on a screen...

No, in British comics!
I'm surrounded by philistines...

Abslom Daak was created by Steve Moore and Steve Dillon in a series of back-up strips in Doctor Who Weekly in 1979, and went on to become one of the most popular comic characters to spin-off from the Doctor who franchise. He guest starred in the Doctor's own strip a couple of times, and transitioned to the Virgin books Doctor Who: New Adventures novels in the 90s, guest starring in the novel Deceit. The fact that he's now been incorporated into the TV series, albeit just as a face on a screen most of the audience probably won't notice, makes me absurdly happy.
