It looks as if the Tardis has been breached as it's being reported that scripts from the upcoming season of Doctor Who have leaked online.

The leak seems so bad that the BBC has released an official statement pleading for sites and fans not to share the info.

The BBC is also investigating the leak, which may have occurred as a result of sending information to their new Latin American-based headquarters located in Miami.

"BBC Worldwide is currently investigating a security issue around Doctor Who series eight where unfinished material has inadvertently been made public. We deeply regret this and apologize 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 when it launches. 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."

The Radio Times reports that the first episode of Doctor Who Series 8 looks to be aired at the same time globally; so foreign networks needed a copy of the scripts for translation.

Doctor Who premiers August 23rd starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
