Doctor Who Leak

bbcone:

We understand there is leaked Doctor Who material on Tumblr. This is part of BBC Worldwide’s ongoing 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 fansites and social media spoiler-free.

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.


Hullo there, Doctor Who Tumblr here… *deep breath*

Ideally no one should really know anything about the next season of Doctor Who (that hasn’t been purposefully put out by the BBC) until it premieres on August 23rd, but unfortunately some people do.


While it might be tempting to look, it turns out that a lot of people don’t want to know anything at all until the new episodes premiere. Avoiding spoilers is incredibly important to many Whovians - some fans have already started a #KeepMeSpoilerFree campaign on Twitter and Tumblr.

Of course, no Doctor Who fan would put themselves in a situation where they had something that they DEFINITELY weren’t supposed to have, and no fan would EVER save material or spoilers to their computers…but if they HAD done that, we would suggest:

Option 1: *cyberman voice* DELETE. Spoilers spoil!

Option 2: Take those spoilers and put them in a special folder titled “Do not open until these episodes premiere!” 

Since we started running the Doctor Who Tumblr, nothing has made us happier than seeing the worldwide fandom come together to celebrate Doctor Who. Today we’re a bigger, more global fandom than ever before and Doctor Who is the most exciting it’s ever been. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could all experience the new series, unspoiled, when it airs on television for the first time, together as a community? 

While on Tumblr, we would suggest that you avoid spoilers by tagging all spoiler-y posts with “DW Spoilers” and “Spoilers” and to then install either Tumblr Savior or XKit and block those tags. With XKit you’ll have to install the “Blacklist” extension and add the tag from there. 


With either of those installed and the hashtag blocked, posts that pop up on your dash using that hashtag will be hidden - with XKit you can block the posts from appearing entirely. Both of the websites linked above have detailed instruction on how to install and you can definitely ask around on Tumblr if you run into any problems.

Let’s do our best as Whovians to protect ourselves and each other from unwanted spoilers.

Michelle Gomez (Bad Education, The Green Wing) will join the cast of Doctor Who playing the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere when the series returns on August 23rd.

Speaking about the role, Michelle Gomez said: “Well of course Peter Capaldi is our next Doctor, which makes complete sense. I’m thrilled to join him. Well, you would be wouldn’t you?”

Lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added “I’ve known Michelle for years, and I’m thrilled to welcome her to Doctor Who. She’s everything we need - brilliant, Scottish, and a tiny bit satanic.”

Filming is well underway for Series 8 of Doctor Who. Guest stars confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series, which will air on BBC America this Autumn include Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris. (x)

‘Doctor Who’s Day Roundup: BAFTAs, Ukes & Comic Books

Well, if this doesn’t prove that Doctor Who has the most loyal, active and passionate fanbase in the business, what will? At Sunday’s BAFTA TV awards, the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special “The Day of the Doctor” won the Radio Times Audience Award, the only trophy of the night that is voted by the public.
Doctor Who faced stiff opposition from enormously popular shows like Breaking Bad, Gogglebox, The Great British Bake-Off and Broadchurch (which won three awards, and is basically a sibling show anyway, given that four of its stars—David Tennant, Arthur Darvill,David Bradley and Olivia Colman—have all made high-profile appearances in the show and it was written by Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who and Torchwood script writer). But in the end, the combination of Matt Smith, David Tennant AND John Hurt, with that little extra kick from Tom Baker at the end, was enough to secure a comfortable win.
Doctor Who executive producer Faith Penhale, who accepted the award with director Nick Hurran and producer Marcus Wilson, told Radio Times that it was a “really, really special moment for the show.” (x)

Am I planning on returning? I mean, I don’t know. I mean, I said no before and then totally returned! [LAUGHS] So, don’t trust anything I say! But, I mean, I don’t know. I feel like now the character has been sort of put to bed and I also don’t wanna keep popping back because I want people to be able to go back and watch the stuff that I did at that time and know that, you know, they’ll still be sad by the goodbyes and everything rather then being like, “Oh, she’s gonna come back in a year!” [x]
