Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Spoilers Of The Daleks Edition

by

News broke this week that the first few scripts for Doctor Who’s new season (featuring the first full-length appearances of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor) have been leaked online, causing the BBC to implore those with access to NOT make them public, and spoiler the new series before it starts.  While I’m not at all surprised by the leak, I am interested in seeing the responses from internet denizens to the reveal.  Some are angry with the leakers, others are derisive of BBC’s attempt to control the situation,and at least one petition NOT to reveal the events of the scripts has been drafted.  Honestly, though, in today’s on-demand camera-in-every-pocket society, it’s rather surprising that this sort of thing doesn’t happen much more often, leading us to today’s illicitly-photocopied query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) generally has no problem avoiding spoilers, but often doesn’t watch things during their first run anyway, asking: Does knowing that these spoiler-filled Doctor Who scripts exist make you want to know what secrets they contain?
