Usually when a script is leaked, the network is scrambling to pull in the reigns. The BBC took a different route. After a recent leak of Doctor Who scripts for the upcoming season were leaked, fans of the show came together to help the network keep the upcoming surprises under wraps. In a statement from BBC Worldwide, the network thanked fans and apologized to the crew of the show: "We would like to thank Doctor Who fans everywhere for their amazing efforts in helping us contain the recent leaks. The mistake was damaging and resulted in the exposure of five scripts and the first six unfinished episodes from Series 8 on a publicly-accessible FTP site." The statement went on to say: "While there is still a risk that this leak will result in more of this content emerging, so far the impact has been contained to a limited amount of this material through a combination of fans' efforts and the plan that we put in place using new technology and internal manpower to limit any illegal activity. We would particularly like to thank the fansite moderators and Doctor Who devotees who have actively protected the program. BBC Worldwide has taken this issue extremely seriously and disciplinary action has been implemented as a result of the incident. Our sincere apologies again to Steven Moffat, the cast and production team who toil long hours to make the show in Cardiff, the BBC, and of course the fans who expect so much better." The show will return to television on August 23, widely spoiler-free, but you can take a look at the trailer for the upcoming 8th series of the show:
