BBC Combats ‘Doctor Who’ Leaks and Releases Season 8 Trailer

Despite BBC Worldwide’s efforts to keep the new season of Doctor Who under wraps, the scripts for the first five episodes leaked online last week. On Sunday, in an attempt to regain some control of the news cycle, BBC Worldwide released the official trailer for Doctor Who’s eighth season, but a rough cut of the premiere episode surfaced the same day.

BBC Worldwide recently opened its HQ for Latin American operations in Miami. Last week,’s private servers became accessible in public indexes, like Google, exposing sensitive materials from scripts to video clips to advertisements for Doctor Who and other BBC programming. The BBC quickly launched an investigation into the leaked materials, which had been sent to the Miami office to be translated in Spanish/Portuguese, and apologized to the fans.

The Doctor Who trailer is sufficiently ambiguous and seems to suggest the show’s departure from levity-ladened episodes. I have steered clear of the rough cut due the likely numerous changes that have been made to the premiere since that particular cut.

Peter Capaldi, already a Doctor Who and Torchwood alum, is slated as the newest incarnation of the series’s titular character. Given the new Doctor, the seemingly closed books in the show’s specials last year, and the series’s growing audience, it’s understandable that BBC Worldwide has been playing its promotional cards close to the chest.

The new season premieres on August 23rd on BBC Worldwide official channels.
