Doctor Who - Series 8 Leaked Scripts

With only weeks to go before the airing of Series 8 of Doctor Who, yesterday saw something of a disaster as the scripts for the first five episodes were inadvertently leaked, courtesy of BBC Worldwide. Now, I'm not going to spoil anything, except that the titles for the episodes have been confirmed as Deep Breath, Into The Dalek, Robots Of Sherwood, Listen and Time Heist.

Since the leak happened, the BBC have issued a press release and have urged fans not to spoil the episodes online (bit hard considering that some spoilers have leaked on the usual places). I feel bad for the BBC and Steven Moffat for the leak happening as they had managed to keep most of the spoilers for the upcoming series to themselves so far but at the same time, while some fans have read the scripts, plenty have chosen not to and come August 23rd, everyone, regardless of being spoiled or not will be sitting down to watch Peter Capaldi's first series.

On a lighter note, another teaser trailer was released on Friday, centring on the upcoming Dalek episode as well, though I don't think the voice in the trailer is Davros.

Thanks for the episode titles! I didn't want spoilers, but I did want to know the titles.

Yeah, I didn't think it was fair to spoil it for those who didn't want to know anything too major.
