(River song voice) Spoilers! We do our best to avoid them.
Over the next few days we’ll be posting a whole bunch of Doctor Who Series 8 and Deep Breath spoilers, ESPECIALLY on Saturday during the premiere. Out of respect for those who wish to remain unspoiled, we’ll be tagging all of our spoiler-heavy posts with #DWSpoilers (and we suggest that you do the same!) which you can block with a fancy-shmancy Tumblr extension-
We suggest installing either Tumblr Savior or XKit and blocking the tag #DWSpoilers. With XKit you’ll have to install the “Blacklist” extension and add the word from there.
With either of those installed and the hashtag blocked, whenever a post pops up on your dash with that tag, the post will be hidden. You’ll have the option of clicking on it to read it if you’d like, and with XKit you can block the posts from appearing entirely. Both of those websites linked above have detailed instructions on how to install and you can definitely ask around Tumblr if you run into any problems.
We can’t wait to watch the premiere together, and will continue to do our best to keep those who can’t watch along unspoiled.

With the premiere of Deep Breath and Series 8 only two days away (!!!!!), things are getting very exciting.
Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman have gone around the world visiting Whovians for the #DWWorldTour, the TARDIS has been getting vital repairs done in preparation for the new series, and us Adipose have been hard at work trying to figure out the best sugar cookie recipe for our screening party! But what about everyone else? Today, let’s talk about what we’ll be doing to celebrate the premiere of Series 8 on Saturday.
Will you be attending a cinema screening with all of your friends? Will you be watching it in your bedroom with your dog, following along on tumblr as we liveblog it?
Do you have to work that day but will still be wearing a Capaldigan in solidarity? What snacks will you be having? Do you have a music playlist? Any particular cosplay plans?
Tell us about your plans in the form of a text post/image/video/selfie/audio/any other post of your choosing and make sure to tag it with #Celebrate Series 8 so we can see it. We’ll be reblogging a whole bunch throughout the day.

The Doctor Who YouTube team might not have had a TARDIS, but they did have a nifty little drone camera, which came in very handy when Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman went for a photo shoot at the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro!
