Doctor Who Series 8 Iconic

The premiere episode of Doctor Who series eight, the first full instalment to feature Peter Capaldi as the doctor, has found its way online six weeks prior to transmission.

RadioTimes.com reports that an unfinished version of Deep Breath is being traded on pirate websites – as part of a recent security lapse that also saw five scripts leak into the public domain.

A spokesperson for BBC Worldwide confirmed the leak is not a “new issue” and thanked fans who are continuing to keep a lid on spoilers in a statement released to the website:

“This is part of BBC Worldwide’s on-going security investigation into leaked unfinished Doctor Who materials. This content is currently being removed and originates from the same Miami server disabled last week, it is not a new issue. We’d like to thank the amazing Doctor Who fans who are continuing to keep fan sites and social media spoiler-free.”

Doctor Who will return for its eighth series on Saturday 23rd August.
