Doctor Who Series 7 finale The Name of the Doctor

When Is a Leak Not a Leak? [POLL]

Last weekend we heard the story of the lucky fans who had received their Blu-ray discs of Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2 a week or so early – thereby enabling them to watch The Name of the Doctor a week before transmission.

Despite this surprising development – one that has not illicited a response from the BBC America Shop – no rips or even screenshots from the episode (save an opening title “The Name of the Doctor by Steven Moffat”) have made it online.

As a result, some fans are increasingly dubious about the claims. We’re not going to make a judgment on this one way or another, but we’re interested to know just how far the increasing cynicism over this has gone.

So, it’s poll time!

You have one day to register your vote, and we’ll be discussing the results early in the weekend.
